Product Description

Too often you have to choose between a light mountain bike, a stiff mountain bike or a fast mountain bike. Don’t settle. Get all three in one with the 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE1 full suspension cross country mountain bike.  Call Contender Bicycles at 801-364-0344 for availability. MORE INFORMATION

The full carbon frame and Cannondale’s revolutionary FlexPivot suspension make the Scalpel Carbon SE1 one of the lightest, stiffest and fastest bikes on the planet. It’s built light to go fast, but built right so you always have a blast.

FlexPivot is Cannondale’s patented suspension system that results in better control, more speed and more grip to keep your connection to the trail solid so every pedal stroke results in pure efficiency.

Equipped with a RockShox SID Ultimate fork in front, the 120mm travel helps turn the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE1 into an all-day single track beast. 

Progressive geometry with a slack and stable 67˚ headtube angle, shorter stems, bigger tires, a dropper post and plush travel make the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE1 one of the most fun rides on the mountain as well as one of the most responsive.

The drivetrain features Shimano’s XT hydro disc 12-speed group set and Cannondale’s HollowGran crank. Throw on some 29 inch HollowGram 25S tubeless wheels and Maxxis race tires and you’ll be ready to throw it down with the fastest racers on the mountain.

The 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE1 is the ultimate marathon racer and next level cross-country mountain bike.
