There will be four models of 29er full-suspension mountain bikes called Scalpel released by Cannondale for 2012. Two of the models are carbon and two are aluminum. Finally entering the 29er full suspension market, Cannondale made sure that they offer top quality.
In terms of design, Cannondale nicely mixed the looks of the 2011 Scalpel model with Jekyll’s innovative technology. Jekyll offers extra stiffness with the Clashnikov top tube while the 2011 Scalpel gives light weight and no pivot junction for chain and seat stays.
Highly anticipated, the 2012 Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 29er Full-Suspension Mountain Bikes are finally out on the market. Thanks to its 100mm of suspension travel front and rear, the Scalpel is ideal for all-day trail riding and very versatile for mountain bike racing.
