Cannondale Scalpel 2 in Smoke Black at Tweed Valley Bikes

Cannondale Scalpel 2 Lefty

Regular price£6,750.00
VAT included.

A cutting edge, world cup winning XC bike, the new Scalpel combines an incredibly lightweight build and blistering uphill efficiency with slacked out and lengthened geometry to create a bike that is simply fast everywhere. Able to take on anything from XC crit racing to multi day ultra distance epics, the Scalpel is fast, comfortable and fun, eating up mile after mile while still being a total blast to ride on the descents. 

Cannondales proprietary Lefty Ocho fork and a RockShox Sidlux+ shock dish out 120mm of travel, controlled via a twist lock remote for instant swaps between speed and traction, while a SRAM Gx T-type transmission drivetrain keeps you shifting even under full load. Cannondale Hollowgram XC S 27 carbon wheels and Fox Transfer SL dropper save even more weight and SRAM Level Silver 4-pot brakes provide plenty of power when it’s time to slow down again.

From World championship wins to the award winning BASE college course, we've experienced and forged it all. Our evolution led to the formation of Tweed Valley Guides and now Tweed Valley Bikes too, allowing us to help you buy the right equipment, and be able to ride with you on the best trails and help you learn how to get the most out of it. Our shop has genuinely grown from the trail.
