Scott Plasma Triathlon Bikes Review
Superior aerodynamic designs are required for triathlon and time trial performance, with the Plasma range from Scott providing a slimmest profile possible to ensure minimum resistance when pushing forwards during a race.
Scott Plasma 30
The Plasma 30 comes with an HMF carbon frame that uses IMP technology and triathlon-specific geometry, making it light and stiff so that riders can accelerate and maintain speed without using up their energy reserves.
The Shimano 105 and Ultegra groupsets are used in the drivetrain, with FSA Gossamer Pro brakes, Syncros Race 27 Aero Profile rims and Schwalbe Durano S tyres also featured on the bike.

Scott Plasma 20
A carbon frame and seatpost on the Plasma 20 are matched with Ultegra derailleurs and and Dura-Ace shifters from Shimano. FSA Energy brakes are onboard, along with a Syncros RP2.0 TRI saddle and the Profile OZERO TT handlebar for improved handling.
Scott Plasma 10
The IMP technique used in the creation of the Plasma 10’s carbon frame means that the tubing is created in just one step, with a closely guarded process created exclusively for Scott bikes making this possible.
Shimano Dura Ace drivetrain and brake components are controlled with carbon levers and you get a Syncros RP1.5 TRI saddle to boot.
Scott Plasma Premium
The Plasma Premium is the most expensive and capable triathlon bike in this range, with an integrated steering system and cable routing improving the carbon frame’s aerodynamic properties.
The SRAM Red 22 drivetrain puts down power through Zipp Carbon Finecrest rims at the front and rear, wrapped in Schwalbe Ironman tyres to improve resilience. Carbon handlebar and aerobar elements make this bike a real racer that is designed for only the most capable and confident of triathlon participants, thanks to its professional grade equipment and comprehensively quality oriented construction.
