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
What it's built for
Full-throttle trail riding
- Ultralight Hi-MOD carbon FlexPivot frame & Lefty Ocho Carbon fork - 120mm travel F-R / Integrated Cannondale App connectivity
- SRAM XO1 AXS electronic 12-speed shifting / Level TLM hydraulic disc brakes
- HollowGram 25 S carbon tubeless-ready wheels / Cannondale DownLow dropper post / Stash kit
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.
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.
