Spark RC 900 Nino Rio Edition

 

Scott Sports have five world cup level athletes going to the 2016 Rio Olympics in a few weeks, so they decided to create a special color for the leading athlete products of a catalog they call, Rio Special Edition. A race of the world that takes place every four years is itself a highly special event.
2017 Scott Spark RC Nino Schurter Rio SE XX1 Eagle
The 2017 Scott Spark on which Nino Schurter will compete in test XC in Rio de Janeiro .
The Spark series, come with either 29 inch (900) wheels, or the (700) 27.5 inch version. Nino will be using the 29er (900) dual suspension with DT Swiss Fork and shock. While the newSram XX1 Eagle transmission will knock your socks off with it’s monsterous range via the 10 x 50 tooth cassette. To roll the Spark through the finish line, (Hopefully for a Gold Medal) are DT Swiss wheels with carbon rims and traditional saddle.

2017 Scott Scale RC 900 World Cup Testing Review




2017 Scott Scale RC 900 World Cup Nino Schurter

Scale RC 900 World Cup





Scott is well known for pushing the boundaries of lightweight on production bikes, and with the new 2017 Scott Scale and Scott Spark mountain bikes, they pushed that envelope once again.

 

Taking advantage of recently introduced standards like Boost, the full suspension Spark bike hits the instrument with ALL hardware AND the shock at 1,749g. While the hardtail Scale measures as low as 849g. Both are 1x specific design to shave extra grams, but the rest of the new model details are where the bulk weight savings come from and with unquestionable talents for making crazy light World Cup race bikes.

2017 Scott Scale RC carbon HMX-SL frame

Both the Scale and Spark are part of the Racing Concept lineup, which tells you what their intended use is. Both Racing Concept models are 100mm travel, and both use Boost axle spacing to create a stiffer frame and bike. But, the new designs trickle down to non-RC models that get 2x compatibility, and increased travel to 120mm for both the 700 (27.5″ wheels) and 900 (29er) versions.

2017 Scott Scale RC World Cup carbon hardtail race mountainbike

For the update, the most drastic visual difference from years past is the vertical shock. Until now, the rear end had driven a horizontal shock mounted to the top tube. Now, a carbon fiber rocker arm (that weighs half what the old one did) drives an upside down shock parallel to the seat tube.

 

2017 Scott Scale RC carbon HMX-SL frame

 

Like the Spark, the new Scale is a blend of fibers that create a stiff yet comfortable frame. They also save weight. The new fiber types used on the HMX-SL model create the most drastic weight savings for an 849g frame (27.5).

 

The HMX and HMF frames also drop weight from the improved layup, saving 82g (966g frame) and 166g (1,099g frame) respectively. The HMX-SL also gets weight savings from using only a clear coat and ultralight decals rather than painted logos (the Spark uses the same paint strategy, both yielding about 50% savings over a standard painted frame).

2017 Scott Scale RC 900 Ultimate carbon hardtail race mountain bike
Ultimate

Without the benefit of suspension, the frame has to take up the hits. But to be a race bike, it’s gotta remain laterally stiff and transfer power effectively. So the bottom half of the frame is stiffer than the top, and the top half allows seat tube-to-seat post flex, so the rider is slightly suspended.  The seatstays also provide a bit of flex, helping keep the rear wheel planted. Overall, they claim a 47% improvement in rider comfort.

Shared features include the brake mounts, rear derailleur/axle mount insert, stealth rear axle lever tool, internal full length cable housing, Boost wheel spacing and 1x-only frames for the Racing Concept level bikes. They also use a lot of the same Syncros SL cockpit parts to streamline the look and save more weight. The hardtail is compatible with stealth dropper posts, too.

Geometry changes are similar, with the chainstay getting shorter by 13mm on the 29er and 2mm on the 27.5. Reach is 17mm longer, with shorter stems to keep the riding position similar, and stack height is slightly reduced. The seat tube gets 1.1º steeper.

The lineup runs virtually lockstep with the Spark, running from top end carbon down to alloy frames, offered in both 900 (29er) and 700 (27.5), and Contessa and Plus bikes, too. The addition is an electric motor assist version. Full specs and geometry charts on their website, along with lots and lots of options for most any budget.

The range topper Scale SL, next down is the World Cup, and the Ultimate not far behind (shown above), which gets their new HMX-SL carbon fiber along with some new layup tricks to have the lightest frame. Check their website for full prices.

Scott is well known for pushing the boundaries of lightweight on factory bikes, and with the new 2017 Scott Spark and Scott Scale mountain bikes, they pushed that envelope once again.

2017 Scott Spark RC 900 world cup Nino Schurter

Taking advantage of recently introduced standards like Boost, the full suspension Spark bike hits the scale with ALL hardware AND the shock at 1,749g. While the hardtail Scale measures as low as 849g. Both are 1x specific design to shave extra grams, but the rest of the new model details are where the bulk weight savings come from and with unquestionable talents for making crazy light Ultimate Pro race bikes.

Both Racing Concept models are 100mm travel, and both use Boost axle spacing to create a stiffer frame and bike. But, the new designs trickle down to non-RC models that get 2x compatibility, and increased travel to 120mm for both the 700 (27.5″ wheels) and 900 (29er) versions.

2017 Scott Spark SL Fox shock

For the update, the most drastic visual difference from years past is the vertical shock. Until now, the rear end had driven a horizontal shock mounted to the top tube. Now, a carbon fiber rocker arm (that weighs half what the old one did) drives an upside down shock parallel to the seat tube.

 

2017 Scott Spark RC frameset

The new single-pivot Spark uses a solid rear triangle, relying on seatstay flex to compensate for the lack of a pivot near the rear axle. The design has been reduced from 18 parts (in 2016) to three, molding the left and right halves as single pieces, plus the brake mount. While the shock’s placement still allows for large or small water bottles to fit inside the front triangle, with multiple mounts to suit your preference for placement.

2017 Scott Spark RC SL linkage

Like before, higher end Spark models use their TwinLoc travel adjust system with a custom Fox Nude shock to cut travel from 100mm to 70mm, then on down 0mm at lockout (120mm travel bikes reduce to 85mm). In either mode, the shock rate was designed to keep it supple at the beginning of the stroke, then firm up a bit beyond sag before taking advantage of an air shock’s natural ramp to avoid bottom out.

 

2017-scott-spark-scale-brake-mount-comparison

Furthering the clean look are the integrated brake mounts, and cables are run internally from the front of the bike all the way to their destination.

2017 Scott Spark RC SL Eagle XX1

On the driveside, they designed a threaded thru-axle insert which is one with the derailleur hanger. Which simply inserts into the carbon frame to support the axle. While the brake mount, which comes in versions for 160mm or 180mm rotors, combines with the simplified rear triangle construction to save 130g.

2017 Scott Spark RC SL 1x driveside

Integrated DT Swiss thru axle with removable Torx 25 handle, custom chain guide and lots of new Syncros SL parts that both look good and drop weight from the high end bikes.

All of those changes come together with geometry updates to create a 700/900 series bike that’s modernized with the “long and low” trend. Compared to the 2016 model, it has a 28mm lower standover, 13mm shorter chainstays and a 1.3º slacker head angle (68.5º). The seat tube, however, gets 1º steeper (73.8º) to put you over the pedals.

 

The range topper Spark SL, next down is the World Cup, and the Ultimate with the Pro not far behind (shown above), which gets their new HMX-SL carbon fiber along with some new layup tricks to have the lightest frame.

Scott is well known for pushing the boundaries of lightweight on production bikes, and with the new 2017 Scott Spark and Scott Scale mountain bikes, they pushed that envelope once again.

2017 Scott Spark RC 900 Ultimate bike review

Taking advantage of recently introduced standards like Boost, the full suspension Spark bike hits the scale with ALL hardware AND the shock at 1,749g. While the hardtail Scale measures as low as 849g. Both are 1x specific design to shave extra grams, but the rest of the new model details are where the bulk weight savings come from and with unquestionable talents for making crazy light Ultimate race bikes.

Both the Spark and Scale are part of the Racing Concept lineup, which tells you what their intended use is. Both Racing Concept models are 100mm travel, and both use Boost axle spacing to create a stiffer frame and bike. But, the new designs trickle down to non-RC models that get 2x compatibility, and increased travel to 120mm for both the 700 (27.5″ wheels) and 900 (29er) versions.

2017 Scott Spark SL Fox shock

For the update, the most drastic visual difference from years past is the vertical shock. Until now, the rear end had driven a horizontal shock mounted to the top tube. Now, a carbon fiber rocker arm (that weighs half what the old one did) drives an upside down shock parallel to the seat tube.

 

2017 Scott Spark RC frameset

The new single-pivot Spark uses a solid rear triangle, relying on seatstay flex to compensate for the lack of a pivot near the rear axle. The design has been reduced from 18 parts (in 2016) to three, molding the left and right halves as single pieces, plus the brake mount. While the shock’s placement still allows for large or small water bottles to fit inside the front triangle, with multiple mounts to suit your preference for placement.

Like before, higher end Spark models use their TwinLoc travel adjust system with a custom Fox Nude shock to cut travel from 100mm to 70mm, then on down 0mm at lockout (120mm travel bikes reduce to 85mm). In either mode, the shock rate was designed to keep it supple at the beginning of the stroke, then firm up a bit beyond sag before taking advantage of an air shock’s natural ramp to avoid bottom out.

 

2017-scott-spark-scale-brake-mount-comparison

Furthering the clean look are the integrated brake mounts, and cables are run internally from the front of the bike all the way to their destination.

2017 Scott Spark RC SL Eagle XX1

On the driveside, they designed a threaded thru-axle insert which is one with the derailleur hanger. Which simply inserts into the carbon frame to support the axle. While the brake mount, which comes in versions for 160mm or 180mm rotors, combines with the simplified rear triangle construction to save 130g.

2017 Scott Spark RC SL 1x driveside

Integrated DT Swiss thru axle with removable Torx 25 handle, custom chain guide and lots of new Syncros SL parts that both look good and drop weight from the high end bikes.

All of those changes come together with geometry updates to create a 700/900 series bike that’s modernized with the “long and low” trend. Compared to the 2016 model, it has a 28mm lower standover, 13mm shorter chainstays and a 1.3º slacker head angle (68.5º). The seat tube, however, gets 1º steeper (73.8º) to put you over the pedals.

 

The range topper Spark SL, next down is the World Cup, and the Ultimate not far behind (shown above), which gets their new HMX-SL carbon fiber along with some new layup tricks to have the lightest frame.

Scott Racing displays new full suspension 29 race bike for Nino Schurter

2017 Scott Racing Nino-Schurter 29 full-suspension
Photo c. Scott Racing Facebook

The latest from Scott sports is interesting for a number of reasons. First, and perhaps most obvious, is the radial departure from their current mountain bike design. With all of their current XC/Trail bikes sporting a shock that is in line with the seatstays, the downtube mounted DT Swiss unit on Nino’s new bike is hard to miss. Then there’s Nino Schurter himself. For a rider who has been predominantly on 27.5″ wheels, those fabulous 29 ″ Dugasts are a surprising sight. Perhaps it’s the new frame’s design with what looks to be pretty decent standover and a better fit for smaller riders.

Whatever the reasoning, it seems you could be looking at the next generation Spark or at least some new full suspension XC weapon due out from Scott Sports in the near future.

It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like the new bike could be running the new DT Swiss R414 High Volume rear shock that was just shown in April. DT Swiss mentioned that Nino Schurter had been testing the shock since it performed better than their ultra light XC shocks, and this seems to confirm it.

Concept Description

 

The new Scott Spark 700/900 series bikes give the option for 29″ in the size medium and large, while the 27.5 is allocated to the size small. It also features the likes of full suspension via their HMF carbon fiber for the Scott main frame, that’s paired up with a lightweight aluminum rear triangle. The bike also employs a great wallet-friendly mix of high level components, allowing for the Spark to be your perfect partner for marathons, stage races, and all day fun.

Scott Spark 730-930 Bike - 2015

Most everything stays the same for this season, but Scott opted for upgrading the parts pick with several key items. First up is the Fox 32 Float Evolution CTD suspension fork that has 120mm of travel for the 27.5″, while the 29er get’s the same 100mm of travel to smooth out trails and enhance handling with 3 modes of (Climb, Trail, Descend). And to match it perfectly is a Fox Nude CTD rear shock with integrated lockout to provide you with improved traction and bump control, no matter how challenging the terrain gets.

 

Elsewhere on the Spark is a Shimano SM-BB71 bottom bracket for extended use, while the frame goes to post-mount style disc brakes but with a 15mm qr front axle and standard 135mm rear. Spark specs also include great stopping power via Shimano’s BR-M506 hydraulic disc setup. They have also kept the cable and housing routing simple with internal for the derailleurs, and external for the hydraulic brakes. It’s a given the Spark will get ridden in more than just XC races, giving you piece of mind with a full compliment of durable yet lightweight Syncro’s cockpit.

 

With the ultralight performance of carbon paired to dynamic, responsive full suspension, the Spark 700/900 series is more than capable for wild rides over tough trail sections and down screaming fast singletrack descents.
