2021 Scalpel Hi Mod Full Suspension Mountain Bike in Team Replica

Cannondale 2021 Scalpel Hi Mod XC Full Suspension Mountain Bike in Team Replica colours is hailed as the fastest, meanest most capable XC bike money can buy. 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 Scalpels 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 Scalple 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. As well as the changes to geometry and innovative patented flex pivot the Cannondale 2021 Scalpel Hi Mod XC has Lefty Ocho Carbon, 100mm, Chamber Damper with remote lockout, OppO Spring System, tapered steerer, 55mm offset fork.
