Description

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

Scott's all new Spark 740 features a Fox Transfer dropper seatpost, Shimano M615 disc brakes and Shimano XT 2x11 shifting components as upgrades over the Spark 745.

The Scott Spark is not only one of the most successful full suspension bikes on the World Cup circuit, it's also Scott's most popular bike for non-racers. Light, capable, fast - a cross country dream. Designed for a mix of cross country and trail riding its best described as a fast trail bike. 120mm travel front and rear and a 3 mode rear shock remote lever (full travel, traction control and lockout) mean that the Spark is versatile enough to conquer the mix of terrain encountered on the typical UK trail ride.

Scott's Spark 740 features a SuperLight 6011 Alloy frameset with custom hydroformed tubing, tapered headtube and pressfit bottom bracket. 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 adds up to a more agile yet stable frame which gives a better fit to more riders.

The Scott Spark 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 ride a mix of cross country and trail and value a lightweight and versatile bike then the all new Spark 740 is a must to consider.

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™.

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.
