Carve out your place on the podium with Cannondale's Scalpel 29 4! Cannondale super stiff and efficient SmartFormed aluminum frame, oversize BB30 bottom bracket, and a rear through-axle give it the right to lead the pack. A RockShox Monarch rear shock with 100mm of travel lets you muscle through techy obstacles on the trail without sacrificing speed and power. The 1.5-inch head tube is paired with Cannondale's Lefty PBR fork for razor-sharp handling and pinpoint line selection.

And, a 20-speed Shimano drivetrain shifts quickly and easily, while Shimano's Deore hydraulic disc brakes place loads of stopping power right under your fingertips. Cannondale's excellent components are the icing on the cake, with low weight and superior ergonomics for total XC domination.
