I was in my lbs last night in the pokey little town of Nyon and waaa laaa....they were just in the process of putting the finishing touches to the assembly of one. Looked very sweet but am not sure of the yellow go faster stripes it had on the down tube. Other than that XTR plastered all over it, Cross max, carbon FSA bar....the works.

Its not released here yet, this was being prepared for one of the shop owners.

They are trying to sell it at approx 7500 US$ in local currency. Good luck to them.

If you take a small size bike with a shorter and a little steeper stem and it must be right for a "girl".

Prophet prices: Dutch

All Mountain

Prophet 3000 SL RAW 5.099 euro

Prophet 1000 SL WHT 3.299 euro

Prophet 700 SL BLU 2.699 euro

Prophet 500 SL RED,BLK 1.799 euro

Prophet SL for US?

Does anyone know if the Prophet SL will be sold in North America? The rumor is that these are Euro only bikes. I like the Prophet a lot but an SL version would make more sense for me.

Awesome bike, can you tell me what market is the bike aimed at and is it a light enough bike to replace scapel for cc races or is it aimed at 12/24 hr races which is what i need a bike for, also is this the supposed "darwin"

They (lbs) told me that the Prophet Sl is aimed at the european market because cannondale thought the 140MM of the "normal" Prophet is not that appreciated in XC europe.
They also told me that the Darwin is still in development.
If you take the 1000sl and switch the fork for the 110MMcarbonDLR and switch the weels
for some crossmax SL's and add some more "SL" parts you could have a 11KG bike.
The scalpel will still be a lighter and a better XC racer but if you like some more comfort it is a good option specialy for the 12/24 hours races you did mention.
Two weeks ago I did choose for my Prophet2000 instead of my Scalpel on a 4 hour marathontraining on a "bumpy" trail.

I've got a Prophet SL too. I've never seen anywhere what the maximum fork length you can get away with is. I think they usually came with a Lefty DLR2 speed 110. Whether the extra length of a lefty max will be too much for the frame i don't know! I'd guess it'll be safe in XC mode but you might be taking a risk with the bike in FR mode?
