Last week we headed to Finale Ligure in Italy for the presentation of the Cannondale Factory Racing team, the first time the athletes had gathered together in the first place.

This wasn’t a product launch, rather it was an opportunity to get the world's media and the company’s race team in one place together. Fortunately Cannondale had brought along their brand new Scalpel 29er, giving us an exclusive opportunity to take a close look at their debut 29er full-susser.

To get the skinny on the new bike, we grabbed a few minutes with Cannondale’s product manager, Murray Washburn, who in this video talks us through the main details of what makes the Scalpel 29er. Watch it below:
