The New Cutting Edge

From LAB to Podium
The LAB71 variant of the Scalpel is off the map. On the fringe. At the limit. It pushes the boundaries of performance beyond where any cross-country mountain bike has ever been before. With Hi-MOD carbon construction, ultra-premium spec, and stunning attention to detail, it’s aiming for only one place on the podium: the top.

Suspension for Speed
The most advanced suspension ever made for XC. While others sacrifice performance to save weight, our patented FlexPivot suspension delivers both. Incredibly light, with unreal grip, acceleration, and control, it lets you go flat-out everywhere. More speed. More fun.

World’s Best XC Fork
Lefty Ocho is simply the most advanced, smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight fork ever made. Its one-of-a-kind design lets you float through the chop and slice through the chunder like nothing else.

Degrees of Difference
Scalpel’s progressive geometry has evolved even further – we have a full degree and a half slacker headtube angle, one-degree steeper seat tube angle – creating an XC bike that’s more aggressive, lightning-fast, fun, and stable everywhere, from the World Cup to your local loop.
