Scalpel SE’s patented FlexPivot suspension results in more grip - more control - and more speed - 120mm of plush travel works so well that it feels like so much more – meaning all-day singletrack sessions are a gas - Scalpel’s progressive XC attitude has evolved even further with a slack and stable 67° headtube angle – combined with shorter stems - bigger tires - dropper posts and bigger travel: if you love riding trails fast - precise and in full control - then this is the bike for you.

 

 

FlexPivot

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.

 

Proportional Response

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.

 

STASH Kit Compatible

Compatible with the STASH kit (purchased separately). An aftermarket kit containing everything you need for lightning-fast trailside repairs stashes neatly under your water bottle. Quick and easy.

 

Connected

An integrated wheel sensor delivers hyper accurate speed, route and distance info, registers your bike, reminds you of needed service and more, all through the free Cannondale App.

 

Ai – Asymmetric Integration 

Our unique offset drivetrain delivers big tire/mud clearance while keeping the chainstays short for traction and agility. Factor in that it also creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel, and Ai is a win-win-win.

 

Two Waterbottles

Proper hydration, without the pack. Hallelujah!

 

DirectLine Cable Routing

Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy.
