Description of SCOTT SCALE 920 Carbon Mountainbike - 2017
Fast twentyniner carbon-racebike!
The SCOTT Scale 920 has been completely redesigned for 2017. Geometry inspired by racing at the highest level, a 2x11-speed Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain and Syncros components combine to give you a hard tail that is just itching to finish first.
This SCOTT bike is equipped with a quality 2x11-speed Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, FOX 32 SC Float Performance Air suspension fork, hydr. Shimano SLX M7000 disc brakes and Syncros components.
- HMF-IMP3™-Carbon-Fiber - This HMF-frame is produced with the IMP3™ technology. Engineers have developed IMP™, the newest technology applied to carbon production. SCOTT's proprietary process allows for lighter construction by removing 11% of the material from the headtube intersection while increasing strength by utilizing high modulus stressed fibers for more precise fiber placement in critical areas.
- Evo-Lap Technology - With the proper selection of materials, eighty percent of the work to create a frame is done. But the remaining twenty percent requires most of SCOTT's efforts. For this reason, SCOTT's choice of the most advanced carbon fibers in the market is followed by intensive use of specific tools, like FEA (finite element analysis) software, to map out the carbon lay-up. With FEA software, SCOTT can simulate different forces on a virtual model of the frame and adjust the frame construction accordingly. FEA software enables them to create complete virtual prototypes incorporating all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments. With SCOTT's Evo-Lap technology they model the frame to optimize the surface area, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observed the results of using different configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. Thanks to this extensive computer modeling, SCOTT have optimized the carbon layers in all the parts of the frame. When the parts were bonded together in the first prototypes, the result was a super light and compact frame without a sacrifice in the stiffness, comfort or impact resistance. The entire range benefited from SCOTT's EvoLap technology.
- SW Dropouts - On the new Scale, SCOTT have redesigned all the parts that can give them significant benefits in terms of performance and functionality. On the previous model the support of the dropout was a bulky additional part molded to the carbon chain stay. The new dropouts are designed to be integrated on the thru-axle system thanks to a hollow tubular design that allows a simple and light weight structure. Available for SRAM and Shimano DM derailleurs, this dropout increases the stiffness and avoids damage to the frame in case of impacts on the rear derailleur.
- ICCR Cable Routing - On the new Scale and Spark, to provide a clean look and a functional solution for all the different control cable standards on the market, cable routing is fully internal and designed for full length cable housing. Routing the cables internally omits bulky external hardware and looks cleaner. The cables can endure a longer lifetime as they are protected within the frame. The entry points are machined aluminium removable inserts that come along with the frame and can be chosen according to the setup of the bike. Assembling an electronic group or a dropper post will not be a problem and the look will always be clean-cut.
- SDS2 Shock Damping System - Racers will attest that ride comfort is an essential element of performance. During the development of a hardtail frame, it is essential to distinguish the areas of the frame optimized for comfort from the ones more related to the stiffness. Many brands in the market offer different solutions to improve those aspects but most of them are limited only to a component or a specific area of the frame. With the SDS2 technology SCOTT go beyond this approach, reinventing the concept of comfort on hardtail frames without adding additional parts or sacrificing pedaling stiffness.To reach their goal, SCOTT ran analysis and testing to optimize different shapes of the tubes on the whole frame along with accurate alignment of the carbon fibers. The result on the new Scale frame is specific, controlled flex in areas that increase rider comfort and guarantee optimal absorption of vibrations not only on the saddle but also when the riders standing up on the pedals. This approach to comfort must not only accommodate the lightest weight attainable, but also maintain stiffness for the sake of pedal efficiency. Further, superior rigidity of the frame ensures accurate handling in the steeper sections. In the new Scale SCOTT have considered all these aspects to avoid any undesired flexion that would affect performances either climbing or descending .
29er Wheels - Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. 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 26” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger.
- best roll-over performance
- carries momentum
- maximum traction surface
- best stability on easy trails
- lowest suspension stress
- great for larger frame sizes
- increase stability on long curve
