The Scott SCALE 970 mountain bike is a great option for both training and long-distance travel. The bike has an aluminum frame, a twelve-speed transmission, an air-oil fork, a disc hydraulic brake system.
The aluminum frame is butted and hydroformed. The first helps to reduce weight, the other increases torsional rigidity. The tapered head tube significantly increases rigidity and withstands heavy loads. Internal routing of the transmission cables keeps them dry and dirt free.
The RockShox air / oil fork has 100mm travel to help you tackle difficult trails. Remote controlled hydraulic lock out on the handlebars will allow you to lock the fork without taking your hands off the handlebar.
In addition to high speed, 29 ”wheels also boast excellent cross-country ability. They are assembled on aluminum rims, which are shod in wide-profile Maxxis Rekon Race tires with shallow tread. It has low rolling resistance, which in turn facilitates acceleration and saves power over long distances.
The 12-speed drivetrain consists of SRAM SX Eagle cranks and a SRAM SX-PG1210 12-star cassette. The SRAM SX Eagle rear derailleur works in tandem with the SRAM SX Eagle Trigger shifter to help you shift gears with ease, even in the most challenging driving situations.
Shimano MT200 disc hydraulics will provide easy speed control through high braking force and excellent modulation.
