COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information
Due to a combination of new working practices and demand our lead times for both collection and delivery have been extended.
Where delivery times are stated as a month this is based on the latest information from the manufacturer. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change. Due to an increase in global demand for bicycles and the disruption in supply during the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have become very strained. Lead times are based on factory and shipping schedules both of which can be disrupted by delays in component supply and shipping/port capacity.
Should you place a future order with us for a bicycle we will monitor the bike’s ETA and keep you informed of any changes.

Size Options & Purchase
This Scott Scale 965 2021 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
The Scott Scale 965 offers Shimano SLX and Deore drivetrain components drivetrain as upgrades over the Scale 970.
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 965 features a recently revised double 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. With modern, World Cup inspired, XC race geometry the Scott Scale is perfect for XC racing and all round cross country riding. The 100mm travel fork gives an excellence balance between control, responsiveness and low weight.
The Scale 965 features 29" wheels with excellent roll-over characteristics. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to smaller wheels as tyre contact to the ground is larger.
If you're looking for a no nonsense XC rocket then the Scott Scale 965 offers everything you need.
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™.
