All-new 2022 Cannondale Scalpel HT

Canindole warminster
Warmisnter Wobble – Cannondale has introduced the Scalpel HT hardtail to its cross-country specific mountain bike range the Scalpel, previously comprised only of full-suspension models. The latest addition to the range follows in the footsteps of its full-suspension sibling, with slack, trail-focused geometry. The figures are headlined by a 65.5-degree headangle and proportional chainstay lengths that grow by 5mm for each size of Scalpel HT. It has a new dropped seatstay design, said to smooth out the ride, that’s similar to the brand’s SAVE Micro-Suspension seen on the F-Si, the model this bike will replace despite it not sharing the same name. Unsurprisingly, it’s built around 29in wheels front and back, but now gets from 100mm to 110mm of front-wheel travel depending on the model. The most expensive Scalpel HT Hi-MOD 1 gets the brand’s lightest-weight carbon material and has Shimano’s XTR M9100 mountain bike groupset and costs £6,200 / $5,000 / €6,999. The cheapest version called the Scalpel HT Carbon 4 that retails for £2,600 / $2,200 / €2,499, is decked out in Shimano Deore M6100.

2022 Cannondale Scalpel HT frame details and specifications

The Hi-MOD version of the frame is claimed to weigh 895g. The 2022 Scalpel HT has been built to be lightweight, and Cannondale claims the frame weighs less than 1kg, at 895g. This claimed figure is for the medium-sized Hi-MOD version, painted in the lightest black colour, without axle, seat clamp, headset, etc. The lack of heft is impressive and should appeal to the bike’s target audience; those looking to get to the top of the race podium or blast (repeatedly) uphill. In a unique move, the internally-routed gear cables can be modified to use a full-length outer cable, the system usually seen on internally-routed bikes, or changed to use interrupted cables in a bid to further save weight. Swapping from a full-length outer to an interrupted one would only save a minimal amount of weight, but at the sharp end of XC racing incremental gains add up. This feature could be appealing to those looking to take weight saving to the extreme, and who aren’t concerned about needing to regularly change gear cables. Although the press material doesn’t mention Cannondale’s SAVE Micro-suspension seen on the old Scalpel by name, the new model does have “sculpted flex zones” in the chainstays, that are matched with dropped seatstays to provide rear-end compliance over chattery terrain. I tested the Cannondale Trail SE 4, which has dropped seatstays similar to the new Scalpel HT, and noticed just how smooth it felt out on the trails. Hopefully, the Scalpel has inherited some of that model’s inherent calmness. Elsewhere, the Hi-MOD and standard carbon frames share the same PF30-83 press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube. They’re both fitted with SRAM’s UDH, and use a 55mm chainline. The frame is also stealth dropper-post compatible, with cable routing options, however none of the stock models are fitted with a dropper post from the factory.

2022 Cannondale Scalpel HT wheel sensor

The wheel sensor is made in collaboration with Garmin. The front wheel is fitted with a sensor that connects to Cannondale’s smartphone app to provide information such as current speed, route and ride distance information, plus it registers your bike and reminds you when it needs servicing, among other features. Although the sensor’s exact specifications aren’t listed, it is co-branded and has been co-developed with Garmin. The sensor is fitted to the entire range of Scalpel HT bikes, from the most affordable to the dearest.

2022 Cannondale Scalpel HT geometry

This is a lightweight XC hardtail with a modern take on geometry. The four-size range of Scalpels (from small to extra-large) all feature geometry that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a more hardcore, trail-focused hardtail only a few years ago. However, only the most costly Hi-MOD 1 bike comes fitted from the factory with the 110mm travel fork. The extra travel jacks up the front end and pushes XC hardtail geometry forwards with a 66.5-degree head-tube angle.

Elsewhere on the 110 bike are reach figures that range from 404mm to 465mm, and are slightly shorter than the 100mm travel bike thanks to the longer-travel fork. On the 100mm travel models, reach figures start at 410mm and rise to 470mm.

Chainstay lengths for both travel versions grow as the bike’s size increases, dubbed Proportional Response by Cannondale. Chainstay lengths start at 430mm and rise to 445mm, growing in 5mm increments per size increase. The effective and actual seat-tube angles are kept virtually the same across the Scalpel’s sizes and travels, with the longer-travel bike having slacker angles, once again thanks to the increased front-end height. Figures hover around the 74.5-degree mark.

2022 Cannondale Scalpel HT models, specifications and prices

The Scalpel HT should be well suited to high-paced riding. The latest Scalpel HT is available in four different builds, the highest-spec bike using the Hi-MOD carbon fibre frame, rather than the standard Cannondale Carbon seen on the remaining models. Topping out the range is the Scalpel HT Hi-MOD 1, fitted with the 110mm travel Lefty Ocho 120 Carbon fork with a 50mm offset, Shimano’s 12-speed M9100 drivetrain, and ultra-light carbon fibre Cannondale finishing kit. It costs £6,200 / $5,000 / €6,999. The lowest-specced Scalpel HT Carbon 4 is fitted with a RockShox SID SL 100mm travel fork with a 44mm offset, Shimano’s Deore M6100 12-speed drivetrain, and a host of Cannondale aluminium parts to round off the build, costing £2,600 / $2,200 / €2,499.
