Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 26” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger.

• Best Roll-Over Performance

• Carries Momentum

• Maximum Traction surface

• Best stability on easy trails

• Lowest suspension stress

• Great for larger frame sizes

• Increase stability on long curve



While SCOTT already use the proven HMF composite fiber on all our composite high-end bike models, they 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.



Working together with DT Swiss, SCOTT’S completely revisited the shape of the thru-axle lever to make it more ergonomic and to perfectly fit to SCOTT’S frame. Additionally they introduce a new multifunctional tool integrated on the inner part of the thru-axle itself. This 25T torx wrench is easy to reach and ready to be used for quick adjustments on the trails.



SCOTT’S integrated chain guide was developed in collaboration with the SCOTT ODLO MTB Racing Team.

The idea behind was to create a reliable component that helps to avoid dropping chains but that was light, versatile and integrated in the design of the frame. The new Spark chain guide weighs just 23 grams and is easy to assemble thanks to the smart assembly system and can accommodate chain rings from 30 to 36 teeth.



With the proper selection of materials, eighty percent of the work to create a frame is done. But the remaining twenty percent requires most of the efforts. For this reason, SCOTT’S choice of the most advanced carbon fibers in the market is followed by intensive use of specific tools, like FEA(finite element analysis) software, to map out the carbon lay-up.

With FEA software, SCOTT can simulate different forces on a virtual model of the frame and adjust the frame construction accordingly. FEA software enables to create complete virtual prototypes incorporating all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments.

With SCOTT’S Evo-Lap technology they model the frame to optimize the surface area, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observe the results of using different configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. Thanks to this extensive computer modeling, they’ve optimized the carbon layers in all the parts of the frame. When the parts were bonded together in the first prototypes, the result was a super light and compact frame without a sacrifice in the stiffness, comfort or impact resistance. The entire range benefitted from SCOTT’S EvoLap technology.



On the new Scale they’ve redesigned all the parts that can give us significant benefits in terms of performance and functionality. On the previous model the support of the dropout was a bulky additional part molded to the carbon chain stay. The new dropouts are designed to be integrated on the thru-axle system thanks to a hollow tubular design that allows a simple and lightweight structure. Available for SRAM and Shimano DM derailleurs, this dropout increases the stiffnessand avoids damage to the frame in case of impacts on the rear derailleur.



On the new Scale and Spark, to provide a clean look and a functional solution for all the different control cable standards on the market, cable routing is fully internal and designed for full length cable housing. Routing the cables internally omits bulky external hardware and looks cleaner. The cables can endure a longer lifetime as they are protected within the frame. The entry points are machined alloy removable inserts that come along with the frame and can be chosen according to the setup of the bike. Assembling an electronic group or a dropper post will not be a problem and the look will always be clean-cut.




Racers will attest that ride comfort is an essential element of performance. During the development of a hardtail frame, it is essential to distinguish the areas of the frame optimized for comfort from the ones more related to the stiffness. 

Many brands in the market offer different solutions to improve those aspects but most of them are limited only to a component or a specific area of the frame. With SCOTT SDS2 technology they go beyond this approach, reinventing the concept of comfort on hardtail frames without adding additional parts or sacrificing pedaling stiffness. To reach their goal, they ran analysis and testing to optimize different shapes of the tubes on the whole frame along with accurate alignment of the carbon fibers. The result on the new Scale frame is specific, controlled flex in areas that increase rider comfort and guarantee optimal absorption of vibrations not only on the saddle but also when the riders standing up on the pedals.

This approach to comfort must not only accommodate the lightest weight attainable, but also maintain stiffness for the sake of pedal efficiency. Further, superior rigidity of the frame ensures accurate handling in the steeper sections. In the new Scale they’ve considered all these aspects to avoid any undesired flexion that would affect performances either climbing or descending.
