Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 27.5″ Mountain Bike 2018 – XC Full Suspension MTB (Copy)



The Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 27.5 is a full suspension XC race machine that’s packed full of high-tech race-winning potential.

Constructed from Cannondale’s BallisTec carbon fibre, the Scalpel MTB is built on an incredibly lightweight yet sturdy foundation. Cannondale’s ‘Zero Pivot’ seatstays eliminate the pivot bearing that would normally split the stays. Instead, they have engineered the carbon fibre to allow a small amount of vertical flex to achieve the same result. The beauty of this is that, not only does it help lighten the frame, there’s no loss of lateral rigidity as you’d find with a bearing, and the carbon fibre itself doesn’t wear out over time and suffer play & looseness as a bearing would.

Delivering 100mm of smooth travel, Cannondale’s single-sided lefty 2.0 carbon fork is packed with technology. Despite appearances, the Lefty fork uses a square tube-in-a-tube internal design that all but eliminates suspension flex. Using friction-free needle roller bearings, the lefty is incredibly supple over fast & light bumps, allowing it to react to even the smallest bumps in the trail surface. The XLR Isolated Damper is tuned for XC, and keeps the air & oil separated inside, ensuring the damping characteristics remain consistent and predictable at all times.

Depending on the size of frame you require, the Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 comes equipped with different wheel sizes. There is the Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 7.5 in the small frame size, as seen on this page. Alternatively, the Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 29er is available in sizes Medium, Large and X Large.

At the rear, the RockShox Monarch XX keeps the bikes’ 100mm rear travel in check, perfectly balancing the Lefty fork. A combination of Shimano XT and XTR components come together to give the Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 it’s 1×11 speed drivetrain, along with a set of Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes that give you flawless stopping power and speed control.

Take your place as king of the mountain, with the Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 3 full-sus mountain bike.
