Built for XXC.

The ultimate race bike for the rough and tumble realities of modern XC. It’s the lightest, stiffest XC dually on the planet, with radical new XC geometry to own the climbs, rule the descents and decimate the competition.

The lightest, stiffest, best climbing, best descending, all-around fastest XC race bike ever made. The new XC is gnarly. The new Scalpel Si is gnarlier.

Features

Insane Traction - Without Compromise - Proprietary Ai offset drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, without sacrificing mud/tire clearance or limiting you to single ring set-ups.

XC Agility Meets All-Mountain Stability - OutFront Steering Geometry gives you the best of both worlds: slack and stable on hectic descents, yet quick and nimble everywhere else.

Explosive Stiffness - Just say no to energy-wasting flex. Scalpel Si is the stiffest XC dually going, thanks to the evenly dished Ai rear wheel, super short chainstays, LockR locking axles and BallisTec Carbon Construction.

New SE Models - Scalpel gets even more trail-capable with these aggressively spec’d versions. Rear travel is increased to 115mm, with 120mm forks, 180mm rotors, beefier tires, wider rims and dropper posts! The lightest, stiffest, best climbing, best descending, all-around fastest XC race bike ever made. The new XC is gnarly. The new Scalpel Si is gnarlier.
