Expirience with the Scott SCALE 965

Scott SCALE 965 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 965. Here, the Swiss engineers have really delivered a solid job. Thanks to a moderate 67,9 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Scott Hardtail. Finally, here is another killer argument: in price range on sporty excursions, the Scott Hardtail is one of the best models in the on sporty excursions category. With 5 years warranty, you can not go wrong. Pay attention when selecting your size: the Scott sizing runs big.
