Spark 900: Scott didn’t want to limit riders when it came
down to choosing a wheel size and developed the Spark
in a 29er version. These bikes are available with SRAM or
Shimano build kits and full Fox suspension setups.
Upside down for a reason: The Sparks all use metric
spacing with an inverted trunnion mount. Scott inverted
the shock to allow for more material in the bottom bracket
area to make the frame stiffer and more responsive while
not compromising on ride quality.
Scale 900 RC: There have been plenty of World Cup wins aboard the
Scale, and Scott took their time in revamping it. The Scale is now available in only a 29er and is a 1x-specific frame. The RC uses Scott’s HMX-SL carbon and has a claimed frame weight of 849 grams. The Scale got
thinner seatstays and a different top tube shape to make the ride more
compliant than the previous Scale. This bike is best suited for 100-milli-
meter-travel forks and is aimed purely at cross-country racing.
