          The New Cutting Edge.

          Scalpel SE is the ultimate marathon racer and high-speed trail slayer. World Cup fast and all-mountain fierce – this is next-level cross-country mountain bike performance.

          Where it thrives

          High-speed trails

          What it's built for

          Full-throttle trail riding

          Highlights

          • Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame / RockShox SID Select 120mm fork
          • SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed shifting / Shimano MT500 hydro disc brakes
          • Stan's NoTubes Crest S1 tubeless-ready rims / Cannondale DownLow dropper post

          The New Cutting Edge

          Superior suspension. Superior traction.
          Scalpel SE’s patented FlexPivot suspension results in more grip, more control, and more speed. 120mm of plush travel works so well that it feels like so much more – meaning all-day singletrack sessions are a gas.
          Big trail capability
          Scalpel’s progressive XC attitude has evolved even further with a slack and stable 67˚ headtube angle – combined with shorter stems, bigger tires, dropper posts and bigger travel: if you love riding trails fast, precise and in full control, then this is the bike for you.

          Technology

          Light. Stiff. Fast.
          Don’t settle for just two. Pick all three. With its full carbon frame and new 4-bar FlexPivot suspension, the Scalpel is one of the lightest and stiffest full-suspension mountain bikes available. Built light to go fast = built right to have a blast.
