An XC racer. The Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 4 MTB has been born and bred on the cross-country race course and tackles mountains like few other bikes can.
The Cannondale Scalpel-Si is one of the lightest full suspension XC bikes ever. The frame is built using BallisTec Carbon for strong, yet lightweight construction. The Ai offset rear end moves the drivetrain over by 6mm. This creates more room for tyre clearance, a wheel that requires no dishing, and a better chainline.
To make it even lighter, the rear pivot has been swapped out for Zero Pivot seatstays that flex slightly to help the 100mm suspension travel. A super lightweight Carbon Link actuates the shock and LockR pivot axles keep everything stiff and running smoothly.
Cannondale’s single-sided lefty fork always grabs attention, and not just with its looks. Super lightweight, the Lefty 2.0 gives direct steering and superb damping to tame the train. The XLoc remote lockout allows you to have an efficient front end at the push of a button.
A full Shimano XT 2×11 drivetrain gives reliable and consistent shifting, while the XT disc brakes are powerful in any weather condition. A RockShox Monarch XX gives excellent suspension damping for the Scalpel-Si’s 100mm of travel, and balances the Lefty perfectly.
