Hi, I have a Cannondale Topstone 1, alloy (not 105). I'm trying to find details on what kind of spare spokes I should carry in the highly unlikely event I would break one. The wheelset is WTB i23 (obsolete).

Interesting question, I don’t know anyone that carries spokes on a ride anymore. The exception are people that are on long distance tours.
but to answer your question, bring the wheel to your local bike store. The tech will match the spoke based on measurements. Some stores have a machine to make custom spokes on the spot.
I have only seen one wheel with broken spokes in the last 25 years; a high end mountain bike . The bike had been transported on a car during the late winter and the roads had been salted. I think there was 4 or 5 broken. We had to replace the entire wheel.
