  • 2024 Cannondale Scalpel LAB71

    Hold on Tight 

    Thrill ride. With the most advanced XC suspension and geometry, and rowdy-ready spec, the new Scalpel redefines cross-country speed – again.


    Model Description

    The ultimate form of Cannondale’s XC racing prowess, the LAB71 Scalpel is a cross-country dream machine. First, Series 0 carbon construction creates our most advanced Scalpel frame ever. It’s then built up with DT-Swiss’s lightest, fastest wheelset – the XRC 1200 Spline, a SRAM XX SL T-Type wireless electronic 1x12-speed drivetrain, our one-piece SystemBar XC-One carbon cockpit, and the incomparable Lefty Ocho 120 Carbon fork.

    What it's for
