Product Description

The 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE LTD is THE cutting edge marathon racer and trail conqueror. Designed with speed and victory in mind, the Scalpel is found beneath podium winners around the globe.

An ultralight BallisTec carbon frame with Cannondale’s patented FlexPivot suspension system is the foundation for Scalpel Carbon SE LTD. Throw on fine details like the SRAM X01 12 speed drivetrain and a RockShox SIDLuxe Ultimate rear shock and you’re in for one fast ride.

A fast ride is less fun if it’s not smooth and comfortable. So Cannondale puts a set of HollowGram 25 S carbon tubeless-ready rims and Maxxis Ardent 2.35 inch race tires at your command.

SRAM Level TLM hydro disc brakes give you dialed in stopping power. A RockShox SID Ultimate fork with 120mm travel lets you tame the climbs, tackle the descents and throttle up for the flatter sections of your ride.

An aggressively engineered bike with cross country performance built into every aspect, the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE LTD uses a slack and stable headtube angle, shorter stems for better handling and chunkier tires for improved traction to move you from start line to podium in comfort and style.

From the cockpit to the crank, the 2021 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE LTD exudes speed. They’ll go fast on the mountain and on the shop floor. Get yours before the only view you’ll get is from behind during a race. Visit the shop, give us a call, or send us an email anytime to
