This Scott Scale 970 2018 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
The Scott Scale 970 features Shimano SLX and Deore shifting components as upgrades over the Scale 980.
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 970 features a 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 970 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.
Featuring Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, a Shimano SLX/Deore 2x drivetrain with a huge gearing range and a Rock Shox 30 Silver TK fork with Scott's Rideloc remote handlebar lockout the Scale 970 is an awesome package at a great pricepoint.
If you're starting off in MTB and want to hit the cross country trails as quickly as possible then the Scale 970 shouldn't be overlooked.
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™.
