Cannondale Scalpel-Si Team 29er Mountain Bike 2018 – XC Full Suspension MTB



Billed as the world’s best XC race machine, it’s hard to see how the Cannondale Scalpel-Si Team 29er full suspension mountain bike can be beaten.

Using their top grade Hi-MOD BallisTec carbon fibre, the Cannondale Scalpel-Si Team MTB takes weight saving to the extreme, without sacrificing any stiffness or strength. 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, including their latest 2Spring self-balancing positive/negative air system. With a square tube-in-a-tube design, the Lefty fork all but eliminates unwanted flex. Thanks to the 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.

At the rear, the RockShox Monarch XX keeps the bikes’ 100mm rear travel in check, perfectly balancing the Lefty fork. SRAM’s much-lauded top—of-the-range Eagle XX1 1×12 speed groupset gives the Scalpel Si Team an enormous 500% gear range, changing with razor sharp precision and rapid speed with every click of the shifter. SRAM also lend their name to the Scalpel-Si Team’s brakes as well, with their Level Ultimate callipers and 180mm rotors bestowing the bike with truly remarkable stopping power & control.

It would be disappointing to see this bike roll on anything other than the highest quality wheels, which is why Cannondale have fitted it with a set of Enve M50 carbon fibre rims, along with a Lefty 60 front hub, and a HollowGram (by DT Swiss) rear hub. The resulting wheels are so lightweight, they return much reduced gyroscopic forces, and give the bike the kind of agility you would otherwise expect from a much smaller wheel.

There’s a spot on the podium reserved for riders of Cannondale’s Scalpel-Si Team 29er mountain bike.
