Innovations & Technologies of the Cannondale Scalpel Si
Incredible traction when it counts
Make climbing easier and handling smoother thanks to the proprietary Cannondale Ai offset drivetrain, without sacrificing mud/tire clearance or limiting your set-up options.
Agility and stability combined
The OutFront steering geometry gives you the best of both worlds - controlled and stable on fast demanding descents and fast and agile wherever you need it.
The Lefty Ocho is incredibly smooth and precise. It easily manages every obstacle and every turn in XC racing. Its custom extra-long fork offsets (rake) make our OutFront Steering Geometry possible.
Clean Cable Management
Interchangeable cable guides in the head tube keep the cables safely in place and support any cable configuration.
Integrated Di2 battery housing
The easily accessible internal top tube Di2 battery holder allows for stealth dropper post compatibility.
Big bonuses with limited weight. The Lefty Ocho fork, BallisTec carbon frame and zero-pivot stays add fantastic functionality, without compromising the Scalpel-Si's status as the lightest XC mountain bike on the market.
Ballistec Hi-Mod Carbon
The Hi-Mod version consists of a sophisticated mix of carbon fibers that form a reinforcing net. Because of its extreme strength, Cannondale achieves enormous stiffness with less material, so the overall weight is kept to a minimum. The Hi-Mod fibres offer a communicative, vibrant riding experience that connects the rider even more closely to the road and gives him more control to push his limits.
