New Cutting Edge Design This is the ultimate XC race bike. Ground-breaking suspension, aggressive geometry and feathery weight let you go full gas from the gun. Where it thrives On the race course, What its built for Chasing Podiums. Equipped with Lightweight carbon FlexPivot frame / Lefty Ocho fork / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity. Best XC bike from cannondale.
The most advanced suspension ever made for XC. While others sacrifice performance to save weight, our patented FlexPivot suspension delivers both. Incredibly light, with unreal grip, acceleration and control, it lets you go flat-out everywhere. More speed. More fun.
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.
Unlike the competition, who use the same suspension kinematic across all sizes, we customize the layout of our suspension for each one, so that every rider, from the smallest to the tallest, experiences the same brilliant suspension performance.
Lefty’s extra-long fork offset gives you more stability and confidence when things get rough, while keeping the steering XC-quick everywhere else.
