Description

This Scott Scale 740 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

The Scott Scale 740 features Shimano XT 11 speed shifting components and Shimano M615 disc brakes as upgrades over the Scale 745.

Scott's Scale has set the standard for cross country hardtails for over a decade. Renowned for their low weight, excellent lateral stiffness and vertical compliance, Scales offer everything you could want from a cross country hardtail.

The Scott Scale 740 features a new Superlight SL custom butted 6061 alloy frameset with a tapered headtube, press fit bottom bracket, bridgeless seatstays and internal cable routing. It's lightweight and has a super clean look. The SL superlight tubing saves weight over the standard frameset without sacrificing any stiffness.

Shimano M615 hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano XT 2x11 shifting components with SLX shifters and a Fox 32 Float Performance air fork with 3 position remote lockout add up to make the Scale 740 a great overall package.

The Scale 740 features 27.5" wheels which are lighter and easier to accelerate than the larger 29" wheel option. 27.5" wheel's low inertia also means they are highly manoeuvrable and perfect for riders wanting a lively ride. 27.5" wheels also allow for a lower standover and handlebar height which can suit shorter riders.

If you're looking for a high performance aluminium cross country hardtail with top line componentry then the Scale 740 is one of the best available.

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™.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicyles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and resposibility on which size to purchase is your's.
