The New Cutting Edge
Scalpel SE is the ultimate marathon racer and high-speed trail slayer. World Cup fast and all-mountain fierce – this is next-level cross-country mountain bike performance.
Where it thrives
What it’s built for
Full-throttle trail riding
- Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame / New RockShox Sid Ultimate 120mm fork / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity
- New SRAM XO1 12-speed shifting / Level TLM hydro disc brakes
- HollowGram 25 S carbon tubeless-ready wheels / Cannondale DownLow dropper post / Stash kit
DirectLine Cable Routing
Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy.
The key to Scalpel’s incredible suspension performance and light weight. These patented carbon plates create virtual Horst link pivots, while being stiffer and lighter than bearings. Incredibly durable. Incredibly flexible. And completely maintenance-free.
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.
