Manufacturer: Cannondale Categories: Mountain Bikes, Cannondale

The incredibly light frame has been engineered with innovative FlexPivot suspension for the best possible traction and control, and both this and the RockShox fork, offer 120mm of plush travel so you'll roll faster and smoother over the harshest and rockiest of terrain. Using Proportional Response in the design, each frame size is fine-tuned to cater for every rider in the same way, so whether you're on the biggest or the smallest size, you'll reap the same benefits. The progressive XC geometry, with a slacker headtube angle and a unique offset Ai (Asymmetric Integration) drivetrain and shorter chainstays brings stability, improved traction and an agile ride feel, and there's more clearance for wider tyres.

The technology-packed frameset is paired with a mix of SRAM's Eagle SX and Shimano components. The 1x12-speed SRAM drivetrain features a wide-ranging 11-50-tooth cassette that offers the small gears you need for steep climbs but won't hold you back when it comes to those high-speed descents. The braking is powerful and modulated and comes courtesy of Shimano MT500 hydraulic discs. With 29" wheels, you get faster rolling over larger obstacles, and the bike has a dropper seatpost so you can quickly move it out of the way for better manoeuvrability on tricky drops and steep descents.

FlexPivot — The key to Scalpel SE’s incredible suspension performance and light weight. These patented carbon fibre flex zones act just like a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable than any bearing setup
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
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 tyres, dropper posts and bigger travel: if you love riding trails fast, precise and in full control, then this is the bike for you
Stiff. Light. Fast - The Scalpel SE is one of the lightest and stiffest full-suspension mountain bikes available. Built light to go fast
Two water bottle mounts
DirectLine Cable Routing — Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy
