Scott: Plasma RC (HMX) Mech/Di2 Frame Set - 2017
Scott: Plasma RC (HMX) Mech/Di2 Frame Set - 2016
The SCOTT Plasma RC was designed to not only be aerodynamically sound, but also to be faster WITH a moving rider on it than without. With Sebastian Kienle racking up a European Championship and a World Championship in Kona in the bikes first year, it is safe to say that the Plasma RC is a cut above the rest. Next level adjustability, fuel storage and integration make the Plasma 5 not just a bike, but rather a well-oiled machine with one intention and one intention only- the top step.
HMX CARBON FIBER
While 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.
F01-X230 PARAMETRIC AIRFOIL
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.
The position of the rider directly influences the force distribution during the pedal stroke and consequently determines pedaling efficiency while the position of the rider’s upper body directly affects aerodynamic drag. An aerodynamically positioned torso will lower drag therefore improve aerodynamic performance. Saddle and handlebar adjustability were in effect a major topic during the developmental phase. Considering the idea that this bike would be ridden by riders of all shapes and sizes, from World Tour riders to long-distance triathletes, the Plasma 5 offers a wide range of adjustability to follow suit.
FULL STORAGE PLASMA
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.
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.
