Many bike companies will try and tout innovation and excellence. Scott Bikes actually does it.
With a wide range of bikes for all levels of riders, Scott has become a company of industry leading technology and forward thinking.
Scott started out not even making bikes or bicycle parts. The first foray of the company was actually ski poles. Ed Scott pioneered the first aluminium ski poles in 1958, from there the Scott company grew to more exciting and adventurous modes.
Scott Bike was formed in 1989 when Charley French made the first aerodynamic handlebar. The bike side of the company grew like wild fire and by 1995 Scott was a household name. The Endorphin was Scott’s first carbon bike and with wins in the Olympics and the World Cup, the name and the company were huge.
1998 saw the release of the G-Zero, the (at the time) worlds lightest full suspension bike. Scott continued to innovate and seek lighter and lighter frames. In 2001 to 2003 they unveiled two models, culminating with the CR1, the lightest frame ever (895 grams).
Scott continues to make new innovations for racing, casual riders and trail enthusiasts. 2003 saw the arrival of Genius, a full suspension bike with adjustable (three-position) shocks. The Genius won the marathon event in the 2003 World Cup.
Every year Scott introduces a new concept, even if not in Bikes. Sportswear, skiing and motor bikes are still departments under the Scott umbrella.
Scott manufactures all types of bikes imaginable. Cross country, mountain, urban, electric, Cyclocross and even road bikes.
Versatile, light weight and commanding, the Spark 900 is one of Scott’s most popular singletrack bikes. Kevlar tires, 120mm fork travel, forward seated designed frame with drop handles for more control, the Spark 900 has thought of everything.
Accuarcy in shifting and power come from SRAM’s XX1 trigger and crank. Hydraulic brakes and large Maxxis Kevlar tubeless tires give balance, power and performance to a bike that only weighs 24 pounds.
HMX carbon frame and fork combined with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain make for a speed performance machine rivaled by few.
The Addict RC road bike is efficient with a short crank that puts the power when and where you need it. Uphill and coasting result in the same power band allowing you to maintain speed and maneuver effortlessly.
