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.

Highlights

  • Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame / New RockShox Sid Ultimate 120mm fork / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity
  • Shimano XT hydro disc 12-speed group / HollowGram crank
  • HollowGram 25 S carbon tubeless-ready wheels / Cannondale DownLow dropper post / Stash kit

Where it thrives

High-speed trails

What it's built for

Full-throttle trail riding

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.
