Expirience with the Scott SCALE 980

Scott SCALE 980 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 980. Here, the Swiss engineers have really delivered a solid job. With its geometry, the Racebike von Scott is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. Well trained athletes are likely to really enjoy the sporty seating position. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Scott Hardtail to in light terrain a buying recommendation in the price range 999 Euro range. We like: 5 years warranty on the frame! Pay attention when selecting your size: the Scott sizing runs big.
