Where it thrives

High-speed trails

What it's built for

Full-throttle trail riding


  • Lightweight carbon FlexPivot frame / RockShox SID 120mm fork
  • Shimano Deore/XT 12-speed shifting / Shimano MT501 hydro disc brakes
  • Stan's NoTubes Crest D tubeless-ready rims / Cannondale DownLow dropper post
Superior suspension. Superior traction.
Scalpel SE’s patented FlexPivot suspension results in more grip, more control, and more speed. 120mm of plush travel works so well that it feels like so much more – meaning all-day singletrack sessions are a gas.
Big trail capability
Scalpel’s progressive XC attitude has evolved even further with a slack and stable 67˚ headtube angle – combined with shorter stems, bigger tires, dropper posts and bigger travel: if you love riding trails fast, precise and in full control, then this is the bike for you.
Light. Stiff. Fast.
Don’t settle for just two. Pick all three. With its full carbon frame and new 4-bar FlexPivot suspension, the Scalpel is one of the lightest and stiffest full-suspension mountain bikes available. Built light to go fast = built right to have a blast.
