COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information
Due to a combination of new working practices and demand our lead times for both collection and delivery have been extended.
Please check the estimated delivery or collection times next to the relevant size. Please note that lead times are quoted in "working days" so do not include weekends or bank holidays.
For in store collections where a bicycle is shown as being "available", please call the store for an accurate lead time as these bicycles still need processing through the workshop.
Where lead times are stated as a certain month these are based upon the latest information from the relevant manufacturer and are in turn based on the current factory and shipping schedules. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change.
Size Options & Purchase
Cannondale's Scalpel is a true World Cup ready cross country weapon. Built for ultimate speed whilst giving the rider the total confidence to nail the challenging technical sections found on modern World Cup circuits. Scalpel isn't just for racers though and is equally at home on your local XC loop and is the perfect tool for Strava smashing.
The Cannondale Scalpel thrives in competition, up and down hills and on challenging trails. Designed for speed, agility, handling the Scalpel balances all the requirements of XC in a super-efficient and lightweight package.
The Scalpel's frame is built using Cannondale's premium high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. An advanced blend of intermediate and high modulus fibres yields a frame that's extremely light, durable, and lively. The upper stays on the swingarm are engineered to flex, eliminating a pivot. This means less weight, less maintenance and better stiffness.
The Thru-axle pivot system creates a rock-solid connection between both sides of the swingarm for instantaneous response. No twist, no flex and no special tools required.
The Scalpel's Ai offset drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, without sacrificing mud/tire clearance or limiting you to single ring set-ups.
OutFront Steering Geometry gives you the best of both worlds; confidently stable on hectic descents, yet quick and nimble everywhere else.
All 100mm travel Scalpels feature the Lefty Ocho fork. Probably the most accurately tracking XC fork available the Ocho's unique design does away with the squirm of traditional XC forks and is ultra-light too.
Cannondale's Scalpel is right for you if XC speed is what counts.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
