The Purest Form of Racing.
A whole new breed of XC Hardtail, purpose built to hurt 'em on the ups, drop 'em on the downs and propel you straight to the top step.
Where it thrives
Between the tape
What it's built for
Speed, Efficiency, and Endurance
- Progressive, ultralight Hi-MOD Carbon frame / HollowGram crank
- Lefty Ocho Carbon 110mm fork / HollowGram 25 carbon wheelset
- Shimano XTR/XT 12-speed group / Cannondale C1 Carbon bar and post / Cannondale Wheel Sensor
Confidence on edge
No hesitant, fistful-of-brakes descending here. The ultra slack, 66.5° front end gives you the stability and control you need to really open it up on the downhills. Brake later. Corner harder. Pass on the descents.
Scalpel HT's Proportional Response size-specific chainstays and steep seat angle keep you balanced between the wheels for better traction and power on the ups, and more confident control on the downs.
Lead with Lefty
110mm of the smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight front suspension out there. Extra- long fork offset brings extra agility to the super stable front end. Better control, more speed.
Drop the chatter
Sculpted flex zones in the chainstays partner with dropped seatstays to eat up the chatter from rowdy terrain, boosting control, smoothing the ride, minimizing fatigue. Go harder. Go faster. Go farther.
