2021 Cannondale Scalpel SE 2 Full Suspension Mountain Bike in Saber

The Cannondale 2021 Scalpel SE 2Full Suspension Mountain Bike in Saber takes the race winning speed of the standard Cannondale Scalpel and adds more travel and trail ready equipment. The result is a race fast bike that is a blast at trail centres and on the toughest natural trails in the UK. If you want to do all-day epics in Scotland, go adventure racing or endurance racing this is the bike for you. The focus has been placed in reducing weight without sacrificing suspension, giving the new Scalpel a clear advantage with the most advanced suspension design ever created for an XC bike. It’s 200 grams lighter than the previous version. The Scalpel’™s geometry is improved by stretching out the reach, slackening the head tube by 2 degrees and making the seat angle steeper by a degree, overall a longer wheelbase and lower standover equate to a more aggressive geometry. What makes the Scalpel stand out from the pack is the suspension. Where a lot of competitors reduce the weight of their bike by reducing or making less sophisticated suspension Cannondale has solved the issue by using the patented flex pivot chainstay. These durable carbon plates flex, creating a virtual horst length pivot without the weight or flex of bolts and bearings. The results of this suspension can be felt in the pedalling efficiency and grip, keeping that back tyre close to the ground giving more traction allowing for marginal gains and less wasted energy the Scalpel always feels ready to attack. This bike is great for Endureance racing, adventures and blasting your local trails. The Scalpel has the tech to make a difference and is the ultimate Cross country endurance bike for efficiency and speed on any trail.
