Details

The Purest Form of Racing.
A whole new breed of XC Hardtail, purpose built to hurt 'em on the ups, drop 'em on the downs and propel you straight to the top step.

Where it thrives
Between the tape

What it's built for
Speed, Efficiency, and Endurance

Highlights
- Progressive, superlight carbon frame / RockShox SID SL Select+ 100mm fork
- Shimano SLX 12-speed group / Shimano M6100 disc brakes
- Stan's NoTubes Crest MK4 rims / Cannondale C2 carbon post / Cannondale Wheel Sensor

Confidence on edge
No hesitant, fistful-of-brakes descending here. The ultra slack, 66.5° front end gives you the stability and control you need to really open it up on the downhills. Brake later. Corner harder. Pass on the descents.

Stay centered
Scalpel HT's Proportional Response size-specific chainstays and steep seat angle keep you balanced between the wheels for better traction and power on the ups, and more confident control on the downs.

Drop the chatter
Sculpted flex zones in the chainstays partner with dropped seatstays to eat up the chatter from rowdy terrain, boosting control, smoothing the ride, minimizing fatigue. Go harder. Go faster. Go farther.
