It also allows for bigger leverage through the arms and I found assists with climbing when out of the saddle, but perhaps that's just my preference as a mountain biker and my style of climbing. I've also applied frame protectors in areas prone to cable rub / frame strikes / general wear and tear.
The Topstone is an extremely capable and fast machine with 30mm of rear travel that genuinely works; it isn't a gimmick trotted out by Cannondale - it's super smooth, comfortable and provides excellent traction.
