We didn't think there was a way to make Cannondale's Scalpel any faster. Then they made the Scalpel 29er Carbon Team. And they just happened to make it one of the lightest full-suspension 29er frames in existence. Beyond light, it's one of the stiffest frames with the use of BallisTec high-modulus carbon and a rear through-axle as well. That stiffness, combined with super-short chainstays and dialed geometry, make this thing corner like a 26-inch hardtail, with the mega-fast benefits of 29-inch wheels and full squish. You've got 100mm of race-proven suspension in the back, and up front, the 100mm carbon Lefty charges the way. And the specs show off its race readiness with a full XX1 group, FSA bars, and ENVE carbon wheels rolling Schwalbe rubber.
