The Scalpel is Cannondale's XC Racer, but the new Ai geometry that they dubbed "XXC" for extreme cross country gives this bike more technical trail capability than ever, but with no additional weight. The SE version takes that a notch further, encroaching into regular XC Trail riding territory with an extra-light climber that is equally confident in the rough. This one features an aftermarket, quality Dropper Post and has been tubelessed.
The scalpel is a Competitive XC bike with Trail ability, similar to the Specialized Epic or Camber, Scott Spark, Giant Anthem, Trek Top Fuel, Rocky Mountain Element.

BIKE SIZING - If needed, we can arrange a GURU BIKE SIZING by appointment.

This service costs $149 but can be credited towards a bike purchase with us within 30 days.
FINANCING AVAILABLE – We have competitive rate financing available. Talk to one of us for details.
SUSPENSION SETUP and cockpit setup is critical to enjoying these to the best of it's ability. We specialize in proper suspension setup and bike setup and an hour-long appointment is included in the price of the bike to ensure you get the most from a technical piece of equipment like this. You'll want to tubeless this bike as well, so just ask.
TUBELESS – Offroad mountain bikes benefit greatly from running tubeless tyres; run lower pressures for better traction, less punctures, and almost eliminate any potential for pinch flats. If the bike you’ve chosen is supplied with tubeless-ready tyres, then we can convert to tubeless. If not, then a tyre upgrade may be in the cards. Tubeless Conversions - $70/wheel with 90day seal guarantee.
IN STORE ONLY - to ensure correct sizing and to fully benefit from the expertise and experience that we have acquired over 30 years in cycling, you must visit our store and make any purchases in person.
