Crazy light, but who cares?
At just 1910 grams, complete with shock and hardware, the new Scalpel is legitimately one of the lightest full suspension XC race frames in the world. And that’s the least interesting thing about it.
This all-new speed machine comes in two different configurations: the ultralight, XC race-focused Scalpel; and the fast and furious trail-focused Scalpel SE. Your fast, your way.
It’s all about the suspension.
The new Scalpel has the best, most advanced suspension ever created for a cross-country mountain bike. The patented FlexPivot design delivers more grip and more speed – and weighs next to nothing.
Get a Competitive Edge
You need Scalpel. With 100mm of travel front and rear, the incredible Lefty Ocho fork and lightweight parts spec, the Scalpel is built to win everywhere, from the World Cup to your local loop.
Incredibly durable. Incredibly flexible. These patented carbon plates create virtual Horst link pivots, while being stiffer and lighter than bearings. And not to mention, completely maintenance-free.
Modern XC Geometry
Slacker, longer and lower than your usual cross-country mountain bikes, the new Scalpel brings hard-charging stability and confidence to the game, without abandoning its sharp-handling XC roots.
Blistering fast. Incredibly fun. Fundamentally lighter. The Scalpel and the Scalpel SE are uncompromisingly better.
For rapid trail-side repairs, the STASH system holds a quick-draw Fabric 8-in1 mini tool, C02 inflator and tire plug kit beneath the water bottle.
Choose from two different configurations – the ultralight, XC race-focused Scalpel; and the fast and furious trail-focused Scalpel SE.
New suspension, FlexPivot, updated and lighter frame geometry. Use it all to your advantage. Scalpel is built to win everywhere, from the World Cup to your local loop.
