Product Description

Cannondale say: "“Rock Solid” is not a term usually used to describe a nimble, featherweight XC race bike, but it’s perfectly fitting for the Scalpel 29. With its ultra stiff-and-smooth Lefty fork, BallisTec carbon construction and ECS-TC pivots, the Scalpel is the most efficient pedalling and and precise handling XC weapon out there"

- The most refined full suspension cross country bike in the world.
- Engineered to slice tight switchbacks with its 29er Race Geometry.
- So efficient it’s like buying fitness… legally.

Key Features

100mm front and rear.
Available in BallisTec Carbon or SmartFormed Alloy versions. Add in System Integration of the Lefty fork, OPI stem/steerer and Hollowgram cranks and you get a complete bike weight our competitors can only dream of.
A clamped, 15mm thru axle in the shock linkage eliminates flex and play, providing unmatched center-stiffness for optimum control and steering precision.
The combination of a steeper-than-average head angle and super short chainstays gives the Scalpel 29’er a similar wheelbase and trail to our 26’er bikes for ultra sharp, responsive handling.
Through precise carbon lay-up, the stays are designed to flex vertically while remaining extremely stiff laterally and torsionally. This enhances suspension performance without affecting power delivery. Like the Jekyll, the alloy versions get ECS-TC double bearings in the dropout pivots in place of Zero-Pivot stays for smooth performance.
Oversized, press-fit BB30 and full carbon shell guarantees zero bottom bracket flex no matter what your power output is.

Pedal On say: "Light and precise is the best way to describe the Scalpel 29. The Scalpel 29 is perfect for cross country riders looking for fast handling with the reassurance of big wheels. Great for racing or all day XC adventures. The Lefty fork is a class leader for torsional stiffness and lets you put the bike where you want it to go. The oversized frame and ECS-TC pivots match the front end lateral stiffness too giving you a super efficient and direct ride.
