Scott bikes hardly need an introduction, to Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds. With back-to-back World Cup and World Championship wins, as well as Olympic titles and a Cape Epic for good measure, the Spark is one of the winningest bikes around.
The RC900 SL with trunnion-mounted shock is a blend of pure speed and light weight; the frame weight is just 1 800g, thanks to its high-modulus carbon construction and layup. Updated geometry, with a slacker 68.5° head angle, ensures a responsive and fast ride.
The pure black carbon finish and graphics are given a highgloss coat, offset by Fox Factory Kashima-coated suspension front and rear. A full SRAM Eagle XX gold groupset is standard, and stopping is supplied by SRAM Level Ultimate brakes. Together with the Syncros SL carbon components and DT Swiss carbon wheels, it all comes together for a lightweight performance mix.
Spec highlights: DT Swiss XRC 1200 carbon wheels, Fox Kashima suspension, Syncros SL components. Conclusion: As far as pure race-ready goes, this is as close as a rider can get – right out the box to the race track.
