For a completely dialed XC ripper, Cannondale combines big wheels and 100mm of smooth, efficient travel to create an amazingly fast bike. The aluminum Scalpel 29er 3 boasts a race-ready ride with minimal weight, while the awesome Lefty fork and Fox's rear shock offer smooth, controlled travel for a confident ride. The geometry is fast and maneuverable while being capable and confident in technical sections. And, you roll fast with Stan's rims wrapped with grippy Schwalbe tires that are light enough to race on and tough enough to go all day on the trails. Plus, with Magura discs and a great-shifting 2x10 drivetrain with BB30 cranks, this is one machine that covers a ton of trail in short order.

Cannondale's ECS-TC linkage
Cannondale's ECS-TC (Enhanced Center Stiffness–Torsion Control) technology eliminates flex or play in the links and bearings of your frame. Cannondale uses widely spaced, 15mm through-axles for the key pivots. The axle then becomes a structural part of the link or swingarm and radically increases your frame's ability to resist twisting loads and side-to-side movement.

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
