The New Cutting Edge.
This is the ultimate XC race bike. Ground-breaking suspension, aggressive geometry and feathery weight let you go full gas from the gun.
Where it thrives
On the race course
What it's built for
- Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame / Lefty Ocho fork / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity
- Shimano XT/SLX 12-speed shifting / HollowGram crank
- Shimano Deore M6000 hydro disc brakes / Stan's NoTubes Crest S1 tubeless-ready rims
Suspension for speed
The most advanced suspension ever made for XC. While others sacrifice performance to save weight, our patented FlexPivot suspension delivers both. Incredibly light, with unreal grip, acceleration and control, it lets you go flat-out everywhere. More speed. More fun.
Degrees of difference
Scalpel’s progressive geometry has evolved even further – we have a full degree and a half slacker headtube angle, one-degree steeper seat tube angle – creating an XC bike that’s more aggressive, lightning-fast, fun and stable everywhere, from the World Cup to your local loop.
