The Complete Cannondale Scalpel Lineup (2002 – 2022)

Table of Contents

With the purchase and subsequent restoration of my Cannondale Scalpel Team Replica from 2007 I thought it would be a good idea to dig a little deeper into the history of yet another iconic model from the American cycling giant.

Both my Super V and Killer V are fantastic and classic ’90s mountain bikes. But the first Cannondale Scalpel is from 2002 and replaced the short-lived Cannondale Raven as their lightweight full-suspension option. Probably because the latter didn’t perform well in the professional circuit, hence wasn’t very popular.

2000 cannondale raven 4000 SX

The Raven first featured the controversial Lefty front suspension, introduced at the turn of the millennium in 2000. Still one of the best-looking and innovative bikes ever created.

But then came the Scalpel. And though the first iterations of the Lefty was plagued with issues, the allure and quality of this XC rocket would prove so popular that it would outlast any other model from that period.

There’s no more Super V, Jekyll, or CAAD mountain bikes, but more than 2 decades later, the Scalpel is still going strong, and has been the longest running model in Cannondale’s lineup.
