Hold on Tight!

With the most advanced XC suspension and geometry, and rowdy-ready spec, the new Scalpel redefines cross-country speed – again.

Taking aim at XC race podiums and technical trails alike, the Scalpel 4 is always down for fast.

It features Cannondale's advanced Series 1 carbon construction frameset, a Shimano Deore/XT 1x12-speed drivetrain, RockShox SID 120mm fork, SIDLuxe Select+ 120mm rear shock, Stan’s NoTubes Crest S2 alloy rims for reliable speed and control, Maxxis Rekon Race/Aspen WT 2.4” tires for extra grip.

FlexPivot stays are key to Scalpel’s incredible suspension performance and low weight.

These patented carbon sections act as virtual Horst link pivots, creating a true four-bar link suspension that allows our engineers to precisely tailor how the suspension responds to pedaling, braking, and bump forces, without the weight or maintenance of bearings.

More travel and more capable geometry meant re-thinking tires, too. The 2.4-inch tires on the new Scalpel are higher in volume than conventionally narrower XC tires, meaning more traction and more control, even in the rough stuff.

SHIMANO DEORE XT is the original mountain bike groupset trusted by generations of mountain bikers around the world. Whatever the trail, whatever you ride, XT is your solution for mountain biking today.

Reliable shifting. Superior braking. Intuitive maintenance. XT is the high performance workhorse you can count on.
