Product Highlights


The BallisTec carbon frame is light, stiff and compliant for a lively but composed ride.


Ultralight and buttery smooth, the single-sided design is the pinnacle of cross country suspension.


Lighter than bearings and requiring no maintenance, these carbon plates create a virtual horst link.


Aggressive and fast, this modern geometry is lightning fast and confidence inspiring.

Cannondale Scalpel Carbon LTD Mountain Bike 2021

A serious contender when it comes to XC racers, the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon LTD Mountain Bike combines light weight, aggressive geometry and innovative FlexPivot suspension to deliver premium performance without compromising weight. The headtube angle is slacker than previous models, making for a rapid ride that remains stable for confidence over the most testing terrain, and the Cannondale Lefty Ocho fork is a weight saving extra that boasts precise, responsive handling with 100mm of travel for bump-smoothing comfort. 

Top end Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes provide unfaltering stopping power in all weather, and SRAM X01 Eagle components ensure ultra-smooth, quiet shifting that's crisp - with 12-speed meaning there's no shortage of gearing options over undulating gradients. 29" wheels are fast-rolling and eat up obstacles such as roots or rocks, rolling over them with ease whilst the rapid Schwalbe Racing Ray/Ralph tyres amp up speed. For those keen on recording ride data, the included wheel sensor logs speed, distance and more through the Cannondale app.


  • 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
