The BallisTec carbon frame is light, stiff and compliant for a lively but composed ride.
Lighter than bearings and requiring no maintenance, these carbon plates create a virtual horst link.
Aggressive and fast, this modern geometry is lightning quick and confidence inspiring.
An offset design increases mud clearance, all whilst keeping the chainstays short and nimble.
Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE 1 Mountain Bike 2021
Get the traction, control and speed that you want on big trails with Cannondale's Scalpel Carbon SE 1 Mountain Bike. The carbon frame uses FlexPivot suspension, featuring flex zones that work like a Horst link pivot but are lighter, stiffer and more durable. Both the frame and RockShox fork have 120mm of plush bump-smoothing travel that'll have you comfortable on the singletrack all-day-long, alongside a dropper post for shifting the saddle down and out of the way to navigate steep drops and jumps. Using a design Cannondale call 'Proportional Response', every size of frame has a customised layout, so each rider benefits equally, regardless of their height. Progressive XC geometry is a key feature of the Scalpel SE; it's slack and stable, bringing precision and control, with an Ai (Asymmetric Integration) offset drivetrain improving traction while delivering plenty of clearance for fat tyres and mud.
Shimano XT components complement the frameset perfectly, offering a wide range of gears, smooth shifting and powerful hydraulic braking, with all cables routed internally to keep the aesthetics clean and reduce contamination. 29er wheels consisting of full carbon HollowGram rims and Formula/DT Swiss hubs create a strong and stiff build that's able to cope with the harshest terrain and most aggressive riding.
The included Stash kit, containing a Fabric 8-in-1 mini tool and a Dynaplug tubeless plug kit, sits neatly under a water bottle and will help you keep your pockets or pack light. With mounts for two bidons, you can take care of your hydration needs. There's a sensor integrated into the wheel, so you'll be able to keep on top of all your ride data and gain access to other information via the Cannondale App.
- FlexPivot — The key to Scalpel SE’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
- Stash Kit — Everything you need for lighting fast trailside repairs. A Fabric 8-in-1 mini tool in a quick-draw holster, a Dynaplug tubeless plug kit, and your CO2 inflator, all stashed neatly under your water bottle
- 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
- 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
- Shimano XT drivetrain and hydraulic brakes
