This Scott Contessa Spark RC 700 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

Scott's all new Contessa Spark 700 RC features a SRAM X01/X1 1x12 drivetrain, Shimano XTR brakes, Fox Float Performance Elite fork, Fox Nude rear shock and a full HMX carbon fibre frameset.

The Scott Spark RC series is the lightest cross country full suspension frameset on the market. Developed in conjunction with multiple World Champion Nino Shurter its already proved its worth with multiple World Cup wins and taking both Men's and Women's gold medals at the Rio Olympics. Spark RC bikes are totally XC focussed with 100mm travel front and rear and a frameset designed for 1x drivetrains. Benefitting from Scott's unique Twinloc remote bar lever, suspension travel front and rear can easily be switched between 100mm travel, 75mm travel or full lockout on the fly allowing you to optimise the setup to the terrain.

Scott's Contessa Spark RC 700 features an HMX carbon fibre frame which uses higher modulus carbon fibre than the standard HMF models, allowing a lighter bike without sacrificing stiffness or strength. Other features include Boost hub spacing, tapered headtube, pressfit bottom bracket. Scott's carbon fibre technology is second to none and it's allowed Scott to create the lightest full suspension frame in its category. The Spark's rear shock has new refined suspension characteristics making it sensitive in the beginning of the travel, supportive from the sag point onwards and optimised progression at the end. All new geometry gives a slacker head angle, shorter chainstays and lower standover height which all add up to a more agile yet stable frame which gives a better fit to more riders.

If you're looking for a super light, race proven, XC weapon then the Scott Contessa Spark RC 700 is the gold standard.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard. A suspension pump can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
