Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 Mountain Bike 2021
Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 Mountain Bike 2021


A rip-roaring mountain bike that's XC ready, the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 is complete with aggressive geometry, lightweight carbon construction and superior suspension in the form of FlexPivot carbon fibre flex zones. The Lefty Ocho fork keeps weight low and offers handling that's unfalteringly precise on technical trails, with 100mm of travel coming in handy to iron out bumps and shocks from rugged terrain. A degree and a half slacker head tube angle than past iterations of this model makes for progressive geometry that's hungry for speed without losing stability, ensuring swift rides that never fail to raise a smile.

The high-end Shimano XT rear-derailleur shifts smoothly up and down the cassette, with reliable SLX 12-speed components providing gearing options aplenty and boasting durability on muddy, rough and ready rides. Responsive Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes give sure stopping power to keep speed in check, and fast-rolling 29" wheels are kitted out with rapid Schwalbe Racing Ray/Ralph tyres for speed. For heightened connectivity, there's the Cannondale wheel sensor to record routes, speed and distance all through the Cannondale app.


·         FlexPivot - key to Scalpel’s incredible suspension performance and light weight. These patented carbon fibre flex zones act just like a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable than any bearing setup

·         Lefty Ocho - the most advanced, smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight XC fork ever made. Its one-of-a-kind design lets it float through the chop and steer through the chunder like nothing else

·         OutFront Steering Geometry - Lefty’s extra-long fork offset gives you more stability and confidence when things get rough while keeping the steering XC-quick everywhere else

·         Connected - the integrated wheel sensor delivers hyper-accurate speed, route and distance info, registers your bike, reminds you of needed servicing and more, all through the free Cannondale App

·         Ai (Asymmetric Integration) - The unique offset drivetrain delivers big tyre/mud clearance while keeping the chainstays short for traction and agility. It also creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel

·         Proportional Response - Cannondale customise the layout of suspension for each size, so that every rider experiences the same brilliant suspension performance

·         Two water bottle mounts

·         Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy
