Expirience with the Scott SCALE 960

Scott SCALE 960 Review Purely visually, the aluminum version of the Scales is hardly distinguishable from the much more expensive carbon models. And also the features, such as the cables routed through the headset, remain in the SCALE 960. Here, the Swiss engineers have really delivered a solid job. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Scott. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. If you want to get ahead efficiently and quickly, you will welcome the sporty riding position. When viewing the 12,9 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Racebikes in this price range. Finally, here is another killer argument: in price range in light terrain, the Racebike von Scott is one of the best models in the in light terrain category. We like: 5 years warranty on the frame! Pay attention when selecting your size: the Racebike von Scott sizing runs big.
