29-Inch Wheel (29ers)
Kill on the ups and thrill on the downs with the class-dominating weight and stiffness, mountain goat traction, and insanely confident handling of the world's best XC race machine—Cannondale's Scalpel-Si. Welcome to XXC. OutFront Steering Geometry gives you the best of both worlds: slack and stable on hectic descents, yet quick and nimble everywhere else. Unbelievably rigid and precise, Lefty out-corners, out-handles and flat-out rides circles around its flexy XC competition. Its custom extra-long fork offsets (rake) makes Cannondale's OutFront Steering Geometry possible. 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.
Cannondale's best XC hardtail just got better. If going really, really fast on dirt in lycra is your cup o' tea, nothing lets you top 'em on the climbs and drop 'em on the descents like the F-Si. The World Cup edition features Cannondale's Hi-MOD BallisTec Carbon frame with stiffness-enhancing Si offset. The Lefty Ocho fork features no-bind needle bearings and extreme stiffness for pinpoint steering, now with a single crown design. ENVE's M525 carbon rims keep this rig at fighting weight, while the Schwalbe Racing Ray tires fly over hardpack and dig into sketchy corners. SRAM's XX1 drivetrain serves up 12 wide-ranging speeds, a carbon crankset, and crisp, precise shifting to give you the advantage on every part of the course. And, SRAM Level Ultimate brakes provide reliable, highly tunable braking power when you need it, so you can carry more speed and brake at the last possible second. Cannondale's carbon bar and seatpost keep you in control while adding almost no weight, ensuring that your race rig is sleek, lean, and ready to win.
No other hardtail descends as fast, climbs as nimbly, or kicks as hard. With the otherworldly performance of the Lefty Ocho, this is next-level cross-country performance, tailor-made to feed the needs of the XC obsessed. - BallisTec carbon frame - Left Ocho Carbon 100mm-travel suspension fork - Hollowgram 23 Superlight HI-Impact tubeless-ready carbon wheelset - 12-speed Shimano XTR components - Cannondale Hollowgram crankset with X-Sync SpideRing - ENVE carbon handlebar and seatpost - Shimano XTR Race hydraulic disc brake
