          The Purest Form of Racing.

          A whole new breed of XC Hardtail, purpose built to hurt ‘em on the ups, drop ‘em on the downs and propel you straight to the top step.

          Where it thrives

          Between the tape

          What it's built for

          Speed, Efficiency, and Endurance

          Highlights

          • Progressive, superlight carbon frame / Lefty Ocho 100mm fork
          • Shimano XT 12-speed group / XT disc brakes
          • Cannondale C1 Carbon bar and post / Cannondale Wheel Sensor

          The purest form of racing

          Confidence on edge

          More Info

          No hesitant, fistful-of-brakes descending here. The ultra slack, 66.5° front end gives you the stability and control you need to really open it up on the downhills. Brake later. Corner harder. Pass on the descents.

          Stay centered

          More Info

          Scalpel HT’s Proportional Response size-specific chainstays and steep seat angle keep you balanced between the wheels for better traction and power on the ups, and more confident control on the downs.

          Features

          Lead with Lefty
          110mm of the smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight front suspension out there. Extra- long fork offset brings extra agility to the super stable front end. Better control, more speed.
          Drop the chatter
          Sculpted flex zones in the chainstays partner with dropped seatstays to eat up the chatter from rowdy terrain, boosting control, smoothing the ride, minimizing fatigue. Go harder. Go faster. Go farther.
