Whether you're on the race course or zipping around local trails, you'll be blown away by the amazing speed, handling and control of Cannondale's Scalpel 29er 4. Its stiff aluminum frame features an X-Fusion shock to deliver 100mm of super-efficient rear travel. A BB30 bottom bracket and 1.5-inch head tube stiffen up the frame as a whole so when you stomp on the pedals, this thing goes! Up front, an 80mm Recon fork offers up pinpoint handling to slice-n-dice through rough stuff. And it all rolls on Sun Ringlé wheels and Kenda tires for sure cornering and solid traction. Plus, with Avid Elixir discs and a great-shifting FSA/Shimano 30-speed drivetrain, this go-fast ripper is just waiting to zoom past your buddies.

Cannondale's ECS-TC linkage
Cannondale's ECS-TC (Enhanced Center Stiffness–Torsion Control) technology eliminates flex or play in the links and bearings of your frame. Cannondale uses widely spaced, 15mm through-axles for the key pivots. The axle then becomes a structural part of the link or swingarm and radically increases your frame's ability to resist twisting loads and side-to-side movement.

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
