Description

Scott's Spark 720 offers a SRAM GX1 groupset, Syncros XR2.5 Tubeless ready wheels and Rocket Ron Evo tyres as upgrades over the Spark 730.

Scott's spark sets the standard in lightweight cross country and fast trail bikes. Designed to be the lightest bike in its category and offering its unique Twinloc suspension remote Scott Sparks are super versatile. There's no doubting that Spark is one of the fastest bikes on the XC scene, it's been used by Nino Shurter to win multiple World Championships and World Cup races, but it's also a demon on the trail. At the heart of the Spark is its Twinloc 3 mode suspension system enabling you to select climb (lockout), trail or descend mode for both the front fork and rear shock from a handlebar remote lever so you can easily optimise the bike's setup as the trail changes.

Scott's Spark 720 uses a HMF carbon fibre front triangle to maximise stiffness whilst minimising weight. Using Scott's IDS SL dropout system the Spark 720 comes with a 142x12mm rear axle to further enhance frame stiffness. The Fox Nude rear shock is custom made for Scott and is optimised for the Spark's suspension. The Twinloc handlebar remote controls both the Nude rear shock and the Fox Float Performance front fork with just one lever.

Scott offer Spark in both 27.5" (700 series) and 29" (900 series) wheel options. These series of Sparks not only differ in wheel size but 700 series bikes get 120mm travel whilst 900 series bikes get 100mm travel. 900 series bikes with their bigger wheels and shorter travel are best suited to faster XC trails and racing whilst the 700 series bikes are more trail orientated with smaller wheels and longer travel. Choosing which wheel size is best for you is about matching the bike to where you ride and how you want to ride it and what balance of speed versus control is right for you.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
