Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 3 29er Mountain Bike 2021 Black Information

Season : 2021

Brand : Cannondale

Code : C24401M

Cannondale's Scalpel Carbon 3 29ervMountain Bike brings together low weight, aggressive geometry and innovative progressive suspension to create the ultimate XC racer. Key to its performance is the FlexPivot system in the frame, essentially flex zones that work in the same way as a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable, so you can have both low weight and performance with no compromises. Paired to a Cannondale Lefty Ocho Carbon fork, the handling is unmatched in terms of precision, with the fork offset bringing the stability you need over the rough stuff, and there's 100mm of travel both front and rear to smooth out the biggest, harshest bumps.
 
A slacker headtube and steeper seat tube create a geometry that's more aggressive and more stable than in previous iterations and, most importantly, incredibly fast and fun. Each frame size is customised to fine-tune the ride so every rider experiences the same feel and reaps the same benefits. Built-up with Shimano's Deore XT and SLX 12-speed 1x components, you get a wide range of gears and smooth reliable shifting up and down the cassette, while hydraulic disc brakes do their job exceptionally well, ensuring modulated and powerful stopping in all conditions. Strong, stiff 29er wheels are paired to Schwalbe Racing Ralph Performance tyres and include a Wheel Sensor so you can record data on speed, distance and route and use the Cannondale App to access other services too. There is space for two water bottles on the frame, keeping you well hydrated through your ride or race.
 

Cannondale's Scalpel Carbon 3 29er Mountain Bike Features

  • FlexPivot — The key to Scalpel’s incredible suspension performance and light weight. These patented carbon fibre flex zones act just like a Horst link pivot, but are lighter, stiffer and more durable than any bearing setup
  • Lefty Ocho — Simply the most advanced, smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight XC fork ever made. Its one-of-a-kind design lets it float through the chop and steer through the chunder like nothing else
  • OutFront Steering Geometry — Lefty’s extra-long fork offset gives you more stability and confidence when things get rough while keeping the steering XC-quick everywhere else
  • 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. It also creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel
  • Proportional Response — Unlike the competition, who use the same suspension kinematic across all sizes, Cannondale customise the layout of suspension for each one, so that every rider, from the smallest to the tallest, experiences the same brilliant suspension performance
  • Two water bottle mounts
  • DirectLine Cable Routing — Tube-in-tube internal cable routing in the frame and swingarm makes installing cables quick and easy
  • Shimano Deore XT and SLX, 1x12-speed drivetrain

Sizing Information
How To Measure Yourself
 
Measure Your Height
Our handy size charts match your height to the appropriate frame size so you need to be sure you’ve measured your height accurately.
 
Take off your shoes and stand with your back against a wall.
Make sure legs are together and your shoulders are back.
Place a pencil on top of your head and mark the wall (the best and easiest way to do this properly is with a friend to help you).
Measure from the floor to the pencil mark you have just made with a tape measure.
Range of Reach
For most people to get the right frame size, measuring your height will suffice. However, you may find that your height is on the borderline of the range we suggest for a particular frame. If this occurs you need to measure the range of your reach or “Ape Index”. This will ensure you get a comfortable distance between the handlebars and your saddle.
 
Stand up straight with your back against a wall.
Life your arms out horizontally either side of you.
Measure the distance from fingertip of one hand to fingertip of the other. This will give you your arm span.
Subtract your height from this figure to get your Ape Index.
If the result is positive (your arm span is greater than your height) you should go for the larger size of bike.
If the result is negative (your arm span is less than your height you need the smaller size.
Stand Over Height
You should also consider your inside leg measurement when choosing your bike to ensure adequate stand over height. Stand over height is the clearance between the top tube and the bottom of your crotch. For mountain bikes we recommend a distance of 2-4 inches and for road or hybrid bikes 1-2 inches of clearance is required. This will ensure comfort when you’re stopped and standing astride the bike.
 
Our bike sizing charts take stand over height into consideration but if you have a particularly long or short inside leg measurement in relation to your height you will need to bear this in mind when selecting your frame size.
 
Riding Style
The way you ride and the type of bike you are into will also impact the frame size you should choose. For example, a trail devotee looking for an aggressive ride may prefer a smaller, more manoeuvrable bike size. It all comes down to personal preference and how the bike feels to you.
 
Our sizing charts aim to be as specific as possible so you can look up the particular type, make and model of bike you’re looking for. Remember, the sizes given in our guides are suggestions and should be used for general advice only. For the best possible fit  we recommend popping in to your local Leisure Lakes Bikes store, or call 0800 083 0888 for expert advice tailored to you.
