Cutting. Edge.

System Integration

Scalpel is System Integration. We achieve unbelievable weight saving and efficiency by designing components and frames to work together. Our Lefty fork, Si OPI Stem, and Hollowgram SL BB30 crankset give us system stiffness and weights that our competitors can only dream of.

Zero Pivot

Scalpel achieves 80mm of efficient, progressive rear suspension without pivots, bushings or bearings. Through radically advanced carbon lay-up and shaping, the seatstays and chainstays are allowed to flex vertically while maintaining best-in-class lateral and torsional stiffness-to-weight numbers. Pure efficiency.

BallisTec Carbon

The Scalpel frame weighs just 1590 grams with shock! Made primarily from ballistic armoring fibers and high-impact resins, our BallisTec carbon construction ensures that its feathery weight doesn’t come at the expense of strength or stiffness. Race with confidence.
