The Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 Mountain Bike brings together low weight, aggressive geometry and innovative progressive suspension to create the ultimate XC racer.
Manufacturer: Cannondale Categories: Mountain Bikes, Cannondale

Key to its performance is the FlexPivot system in the frame, essentially flex zones that work in the same way as a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable, so you can have both low weight and performance with no compromises. Paired to a Cannondale Lefty Ocho Carbon fork, the handling is unmatched in terms of precision, with the fork offset bringing the stability you need over the rough stuff, and there's 100mm of travel both front and rear to smooth out the biggest, harshest bumps. A slacker headtube and steeper seat tube create a geometry that's more aggressive and more stable than in previous iterations and, most importantly, incredibly fast and fun. Each frame size is customised to fine-tune the ride so every rider experiences the same feel and reaps the same benefits.

Built-up with Shimano's Deore XT and SLX 12-speed 1x components, you get a wide range of gears and smooth reliable shifting up and down the cassette, while hydraulic disc brakes do their job exceptionally well, ensuring modulated and powerful stopping in all conditions. Strong, stiff 29er wheels are paired to Schwalbe Racing Ralph Performance tyres and include a Wheel Sensor so you can record data on speed, distance and route and use the Cannondale App to access other services too. There is space for two water bottles on the frame, keeping you well hydrated through your ride or race.

FlexPivot — The key to Scalpel’s incredible suspension performance and lightweight. These patented carbon fibre flex zones act just like a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable than any bearing setup
Lefty Ocho — Simply the most advanced, smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight XC fork ever made. Its one-of-a-kind design lets it float through the chop and steer through the chunder like nothing else
OutFront Steering Geometry — Lefty’s extra-long fork offset gives you more stability and confidence when things get rough while keeping the steering XC-quick everywhere else
Connected — An integrated wheel sensor delivers hyper-accurate speed, route and distance info, registers your bike, reminds you of needed servicing and more, all through the free Cannondale App
Ai (Asymmetric Integration) - The unique offset drivetrain delivers big tyre/mud clearance while keeping the chainstays short for traction and agility. It also creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel
Proportional Response — Unlike the competition, who use the same suspension kinematic across all sizes, Cannondale customise the layout of suspension for each one, so that every rider, from the smallest to the tallest, experiences the same brilliant suspension performance
Two water bottle mounts
DirectLine Cable Routing — Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy
