This Cannondale Scalpel Si 4 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Cannondale's Scalpel has been designed for the rigours of modern World Cup XC racing. Designed to make the difference in technical sections that are more challenging than ever whilst still being superlight and stiff for climbing and sprinting. It's not just for racers though, Scalpel is perfect for cross country and fast trail riding, with an awesome combination of handling and speed. The BallisTec Carbon frame with Zero pivot stays is not only incredibly light, it's amazingly stiff too. By following Cannondale's ethos of System Integration, Scalpel is more than the sum of its parts, a weapon for extreme XC.
An Ai (Asymmetric Integration) offset drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, without sacrificing mud/tyre clearance or limiting you to single ring set-ups. The Ai rear wheel also boosts stiffness and strength with its even dishing.
OutFront Steering Geometry uses a custom offset Lefty to ensure handling is stable on rough descents yet nimble in tight singletrack.
Scalpel takes advantage of the amazing rigidity and precision of a Lefty fork. Lefty might only have one leg but the oversized stanchion which is squared inside is the market leader for steering precision whilst being superlight too.
Scalpel's wheel size is Fit Focused meaning that 29" wheel are used on Medium,Large and XLarge sizes, whilst 27.5" wheels are used on the small size. This offers the best balance of fast rolling, larger, wheels and rider fit.
Scalpel is a complete package, perfect for racing or extreme XC.
