Expirience with the Scott SPARK RC PRO

Scott SPARK RC PRO Review This bike made Nino Schurter world champion in 2021. They made history, because never before had a cross-country world championship been won with a fully with 120 mm suspension travel. The integrated damper and the Twin-Loc lever for locking the chassis make the Scott the most innovative bike on the market. 11,1 kg is great value for the total weight of a Downcountry-Bike. On all kinds of trails, the Scott SPARK RC PRO therefore rides significantly lighter-footed than its competitors. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Scott Fully is a very balanced customer. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Downcountry-Bike von Scott. A shout out to Scott – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the Downcountry-Bike von Scott for on long tours in light terrain a benchmark in the price range under 6000 Euro. With 5 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Scott sizing runs big.
