2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
The rear triangle also uses Scott's SDS Shock Damping System technology which minimizes frequency vibration from the ground enabling a damping effect without loosing performance. Other frame features include a press fit BB30 bottom bracket which increases stiffness around the bottom bracket area and saves weight and a tapered head tube for increased stiffness and steering precision.
A range of 29" wheeled, aluminium and carbon fibre framed Scale 29 models with mm of front suspension travel are also scott bikes 2013 catalogue. Love it, loathe it or simply don't understand it, Scott's three-position on-the-fly Twinloc suspension system is scott bikes 2013 catalogue for Through a unique partnership with Fox Suspension, the patented Twinloc system controls both the damping and the air volume in the mere milliseconds it takes to activate the lever.
The handlebar-mounted lever has been redesigned for and now sits under the handlebar, increasing its integration into the cockpit while making full use of today's 1x equipped bikes.
Switching between 'descend' mode, 'traction' and fully locked-out, you can optimise performance based on your trailside circumstances. The latest Twinloc system is a far cry from those it superseded.
The Trunnion mount isn't new, but it's a design which has been scott bikes 2013 catalogue overlooked in recent years, that is until now. For Scott, adopting the Trunnion mount allowed them to use a metric shock and since the shock body extends scott bikes 2013 catalogue the mounting bolts, it frees up additional space to cram even more in.
In this instance, this was an additional 7mm of shock stroke on a mm eye-to-eye shock, which coincidentally is the same size as that used on the old Spark. The Trunnion design gave us the opportunity to save some additional weight, but we mainly chose it for the structure.

Suspension performance isn't really affected but it does represent a stiffer foundation for the shock and scott bikes 2013 catalogue a shorter linkage, as it's stiff at both ends.
There's also a tiny bit of 'float' in the Trunnion mount to help with wear and tear as well, but it's less than a millimeter.
Increased stiffness, a lower centre of gravity and the ability to create a more compact frame The other significant advantage of the Trunnion mount is scott bikes 2013 catalogue you can design a very clean frame around it.
In the case scott bikes 2013 catalogue the Spark, that meant removing unwanted and unnecessary bends and angles, which can compromise carbon fibres from achieving their full potential. The asymmetrical down tube and linkage give the shock 6mm of left-hand offset and some continuous structures and straight lines for the carbon fibres to do their job.

The carbon layup around the mounting areas is also superbly stiff, compromising of layers of carbon fibre on either side of the trunnion mount. Each layer is around 0. While 3mm of thickness might not sound like much, the downtube is on average only 1mm thick, so the stiffness of scott bikes 2013 catalogue part of the bike is significant.
The way in which the wall thickness varies between different areas of the frame is also a critical element that Joe and the team put a lot of thought and effort into. To deliver scott bikes 2013 catalogue more efficient structure.

On top of that, there are 10 more Sparks in the range and yeah, they too are all available in both wheel sizes. Add to that the five women's specific Contessa Sparks, which are only available in With that in mind, let's focus scott bikes 2013 catalogue the top of the range, all singing, and all dancing, RC After all, we can all dream, right?
We moved the main pivot up because it's optimised for a 1x transmission, giving us more anti-squat than the previous bikes. We stayed with the scott bikes 2013 catalogue pivot as it allows us to build the lightest possible suspension system.
Race optimized and packed with features, the Spark RC's are a serious piece of kit.
