Whether you're on the race course or zipping around local trails, you'll be blown away by the amazing speed, handling and control of Cannondale's Scalpel 2. Its carbon frame features pivotless carbon stays and RockShox's Monarch shock to provide 80mm of super-efficient rear travel. Up front, Cannondale's Lefty fork delivers pinpoint handling and 100mm of travel to dance through the rough stuff. It all rolls on Sun Ringlé wheels and Schwalbe tires for sure cornering and solid traction. Plus, with Avid Elixir discs and a great-shifting SRAM X9/X0 20-speed drivetrain, this race-ready ripper is just waiting to zoom past the competition.

The Scalpel was designed to increase the speed of elite-level riders by giving them the lightest suspension platform available anywhere. Cannondale pros race on the Scalpel because it's a faster bike, and they've won countless races to prove it.
