It's the ultimate race bike for the rough and tumble realities of modern cross country riding. It's the lightest, stiffest XC duallie on the planet, and we have a couple in the shop now.
Cannondale Scalpel-Si Carbon 3
June 25, 2016
The Scalpel keeps getting better, boasting the technology and features that has kept Cannondale at the top of trail bikes for decades.
Ai, the Asymmetrically Integrated Drivetrain System, allows bikes ultra-short chainstays for traction, handling and stiffness, without any of the usual compromises in clearance or limited chainring options. And as a nice bonus, it creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel as well.
BALLISTEC CARBON FRAME
BallisTec is Cannondale's proprietary method of high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It is the ideal blend of the most advanced materials in the world combined with the most advanced carbon engineering and design.
Lefty’s insane stiffness, unwavering smoothness and ultra-lightweight gives you the control and precision needed to nail any line in any terrain.
ZERO PIVOT SEATSTAYS
The Zero-Pivot seatstays are engineered with a precise carbon lay-up that is designed to allow the stays to flex vertically while remaining extremely stiff laterally and torsionally.
This enhances suspension performance, saves weight and increases lateral stiffness versus bearing pivot rear stays.
It seems like common sense, but Cannondale stands alone in the industry with their System Integration approach to bike design. Cannondale Si approach incorporates cutting edge frame design with custom designed Cannondale forks, suspension and drivetrain components.
Come in and test ride one of these beauties today.
