The New Cutting Edge!
This is the ultimate XC race bike. Ground-breaking suspension, aggressive geometry and feathery weight let you go full gas from the gun.
Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame / Rockshox SID fork / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity
Shimano XT 12-speed shifting / Shimano XT hydro disc brakes
Stiff. Light. Fast.
At just over 1900 grams, complete with shock, the new Scalpel frame is one of the lightest full suspension MTB frames on the market. Incredible suspension, impeccable handling and feathery weight – it’s a recipe for victory.
Degrees of difference
Scalpel’s progressive geometry has evolved even further – we have a full degree and a half slacker headtube angle, one-degree steeper seat tube angle – creating an XC bike that’s more aggressive, lightning-fast, fun and stable everywhere, from the World Cup to your local loop.
