2021 Cannondale Scalpel SE actual weight. My size XL test bike for the Scalpel SE 1 model was 25.82lb (11.71kg). That’s with Cannondale’s carbon-rimmed wheels, carbon handlebar, alloy stem, and DownLow dropper seatpost. The drivetrain is Shimano XT, cranks are Cannondale HollowGram with 34T SpideRing direct mount chainring, and no pedals.
Overall, the Scalpel Si carbon 3 is the perfect bike for a cross country rider. Its beautiful suspension setup makes it comfortable for riding all day and gives it fantastic traction for climbing and (almost all) cornering, and as soon as you hop on the bike you feel its speed.
Take the Cannondale Scalpel, for example. It is a bike with pure cross-country racing running through its fibers. Now consider the new 2021 Cannondale Scalpel SE. Cannondale decided to sprinkle a little extra something special on the XC bike while bumping up the front and rear travel to 120mm, thereby slacking out some of its angles.
