Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE Ltd Lefty 29″ Mountain Bike 2021  A modern spin on the traditional cross-country formula, the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon SE Ltd Lefty 29″ Mountain Bike blurs the lines between cross country and trail, offering an exhilarating ride that inspires unbridled pace. Slacker, lower and longer than its more race-oriented sibling, this SE edition is deceptive in its efficiency, delivering composure on the descents without sacrificing its clinical ability to decimate technical climbs.  Bumping the travel to 120mm, this SE edition utilises the same virtual Horst link as the standard edition. By incorporating flex-pivots into the frame, the need for a chainstay pivot is eliminated, with the maintenance-free design boosting reliability. The suspension kinematics are unique to each frame size, ensuring riders of all heights experience the same performance quality, and the unique Lefty Ocho provides 120mm of stable, stiff travel.  A lightweight trail bike in many aspects, the juiced-up specification sees a wide, 780mm bar and slick DownLow dropper post paired with ESI silicone grips and ultralight HolloGram 25 wheels, pushing its versatility further than just the realm of cross-country. Wide, Maxxis tyres promote grip whilst remaining fast-rolling, while the RockShox SIDLuxe Ultimate shock tracks well through chattery terrain. To glean crucial data from your rides, an integrated wheel sensor pings key metrics to the accompanying Cannondale App, supplying speed, route and distance information.  Highlights Lefty Ocho Carbon – 120mm travel and extra-long fork offset gives you more stability and confidence when things get rough FlexPivot – The key to Scalpel SE’s incredible suspension performance and lightweight. These patented carbon fibre flex zones act just like a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable than any bearing setup Stash Kit –  A Fabric 8-in-1 mini tool in a quick-draw holster, a Dynaplug tubeless plug kit, and your CO2 inflator, all stashed neatly under your water bottle   Connected – An integrated wheel sensor delivers hyper-accurate speed, route and distance info, registers your bike, reminds you of needed servicing and more, all through the free Cannondale App Ai (Asymmetric Integration) – The unique offset drivetrain delivers big tyre/mud clearance while keeping the chainstays short for traction and agility.
