COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information
Where delivery times are stated as a month this is based on the latest information from the manufacturer. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change. Due to an increase in global demand for bicycles and the disruption in supply during the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have become very strained. Lead times are based on factory and shipping schedules both of which can be disrupted by delays in component supply and shipping/port capacity.
Should you place a future order with us for a bicycle we will monitor the bike’s ETA and keep you informed of any changes.

Size Options & Purchase
This Cannondale Scalpel HT Carbon 4 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Scalpel HT is an XC race hardtail that gives you more. More of that stuff you love about a hardtail - the explosive acceleration and lighter-than-air climbing feel, plus a little something extra.
A bit more grip at the limit. A bit more bump-absorbing smoothness in the rough. More balanced, intuitive handling, and a whole lot more lay-off-the-brakes-and-let-her-rip confident control on the descents. All things designed to give you an edge in those clutch moments, the oh-shit moments, the moments that make the difference between podium and pack-fill.
Of course, Scalpel HT is superlight, It's a cross-country hardtail. And with frames scaling in at just 895 grams (HiMod), Scalpel HT is one of the lightest in the World.
Scalpel HT's head angle is a slack 66.5°, for stability and control that lets you nail the passing line on descents. The seat tube is a steep 74.5° for power on the climbs. And Cannondale's Proportional Response size-specific design increases the chainstay lengths as the frames get bigger, centring the rider between the wheels for unmatched handling and traction.
Sculpted flex zones in the chainstays work with the dropped seat stays to tame the chatter and take the edge off hits, improving control and reducing fatigue, so you can race harder, longer.
Scalpel HT is a true modern XC hardtail. Capable on the most technical of courses without sacrificing the pure response and feedback that only a hardtail can offer.
