The Scalpel — unleashed. More travel front and rear, burlier components and a dropper post transform the ultimate XC race machine into the ultimate fast trail slayer. The full carbon frame doles out 115mm of travel controlled by a Fox EVOL shock to keep your rear wheel tracking at high speeds. Cannondale’s Lefty 2.0 handles the chop up front with another 120mm of compliance, coupled with knife-sharp handling. You’ll be rolling fast on a set of Stan’s ZTR Arch MK3 wheels, ready to go tubeless with Maxxis Ardents for high traction. SRAM keeps you ahead of the pack with an Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, while Shimano XT brakes modulate huge power. And, with a ti-railed Fabric Scoop saddle atop a Turbine dropper, you’re ready for anything the trail throws at you.
