Product Description

Scott: Plasma Premium - 2018

The SCOTT Plasma Premium was designed to not only be aerodynamically sound, but also to be faster WITH a moving rider on it than without. With European and World Championships to its name, it is safe to say that the Plasma 5 is a cut above the rest. Next level adjustability, fuel storage and integration and now Shimano Di2 make the Plasma 5 not just a bike, but rather a well-oiled machine with one intention and one intention only- the top step.

Long distance triathletes spend several hours on their bike before switching to the running segment. While aerodynamics and ergonomics are key factors for a fast and efficient bike split, nutrition and hydration are essential to maintain a high pace during both the bike and running legs. With this in mind, the engineering team developed a sophisticated storage system that stands above the rest due to its high degree of usability, while not hampering the aerodynamics of the bike nor the ergonomics of the rider.

Plasma 5 Aero Drink

The aero drink features a clip-on connection that ensures a firm fixation to the stem and allows for installation and removal of the bottle in a matter of seconds. The hydration system offers a low-weight body made from dishwasher-safe material with a large filling opening. A smooth bottle-frame intersection lowers aerodynamic drag due to optimized airflow recirculation behind the bottle.

Storage Box

The storage box features a removable divider and sufficient space for up to 8 energy bars. The rubber top cap grants easy access while drain holes at the bottom of the box prevent water accumulation. The solid body shell ensures an optimized airflow while offering enough knee clearance for the rider. The standard 64mm assembly bolt mount ensures interchangeability with a standard bottle cage.




The F01-X230 parametric airfoil was specifically developed for the Plasma 5. This airfoil concept features a set of variable parameters that can be modified according to the airflow characteristics in each of the frameset’s aero zones. Whether it’s clean, uninterrupted airflow meeting the frame or airflow that has been disturbed by components or moving parts of the rider’s body, with the novel airfoil concept the Plasma 5 has been drastically improved with regards to aerodynamic performance.



18629-mainbanner-1.jpgThe revolutionary Di2 electronic shifting option with SEIS (Shimano Electronic Intelligent System) takes the already superior Shimano shifting performance to a whole new level. The increased accuracy, smoothness and reliability of electronic shifting makes gear changes faster and virtually eliminates missed shifts. 



technology-plasma-front-break-2015-95967-jpg-mainbanner-1.jpgWhile a standard Shimano direct-mount rear brake has been properly integrated below the bottom bracket, a proprietary front brake was developed. The low design and aerodynamic shape ensure compatibility with the front brake cover, while an improved leverage ratio and a rigid construction assure reliable and consistent braking power. The fork features two interfaces that allow for the installation of any direct mount or standard brake caliper.



bi-wb-tech-hmx-950x570-19701-jpg-mainbanner-1.jpgWhile we already use the proven HMF composite fiber on all our composite high-end bike models, we have improved upon conventional HMF material. This new fiber, which is produced exclusively for SCOTT, offers 20% more stiffness and is employed on all the areas that need additional rigidity. This new material also allows us to reduce weight and improve riding characteristics. NET stands for Naked External Tubeset, where the frame sheds its exterior cosmetic layer, which saves even more weight.
