Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2 Mountain Bike 2023

The thrilling Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2 Mountain Bike is ready for all your XC adventures. With its aggressive geometry, lightweight carbon construction, and innovative suspension system featuring FlexPivot carbon fibre flex zones, this bike is designed to excel on the gnarly trails.

Equipped with the renowned Lefty Ocho fork, which keeps weight low and offers precise handling on technical trails, the Scalpel Carbon 2 boasts 100mm of travel front and rear to smooth out bumps and shocks from rugged terrain. The updated head tube angle, slacker by a degree and a half compared to previous models, provides progressive geometry that's hungry for speed without sacrificing stability, ensuring exhilarating rides that are bound to put a smile on your face.

The high-end Shimano XT 12-speed components provide a wide range of gearing options and are built to withstand muddy and rough conditions, making them perfect for adventurous rides. The responsive Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes offer reliable stopping power, keeping your speed in check with confidence. Fast-rolling 29" wheels, equipped with Schwalbe Racing Ray/Ralph EVO tyres, are known for their speed and performance.

For enhanced connectivity, the Cannondale wheel sensor allows you to record your routes, speed, and distance through the Cannondale app, adding an extra layer of technology to your riding experience.


  • FlexPivot - key to Scalpel’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
  • Lefty Ocho - 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 - the 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 - Cannondale customise the layout of suspension for each size, so that every rider experiences the same brilliant suspension performance
  • Two water bottle mounts
  • Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy
