Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3
The 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 will put you closer to the podium the moment you slip onto the saddle. With an incredibly durable and flexible ride, the progressive geometry and new FlexPivot suspension provide unbeatable traction, reliable control and breathtaking efficiency to let you master the mountain.
Based on the Lightweight BallisTec carbon FlexPivot frame, the 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 weighs less than 2000 grams including the rear shock and hardware. More weight is saved with the Lefty Ocho fork to make the bike a race ready rig capable of carrying you to the podium.
A Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain provides the go, while a Shimano Deore Hydraulic Disc brake system handles the stop - both with the trust and confidence you’d expect from Shimano and the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3.
Stan’s Crest S1 tubeless ready rims and Schwalbe Racing Performance ties lock in a solid connection to the trail with reliable traction going up or down the trails.
Understandably, cross country marathon racing calls for as much comfort and endurance as it does technical capability. The 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 delivers each with aplomb.
Adding to the lightweight and functionality options is Cannondale’s STASH system. The built in STASH holds a Fabric mini tool, CO2 inflator and a tire plug kit all conveniently hidden beneath a water bottle. Remove STASH and replace with a cover to save even more weight if that’s your thing.
