Scott Scale 20 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 20 Overview

The Scott Scale 20 mountain bike has a fairly formidable set of specifications which might seem a little intimidating to a casual browser, but to a seasoned veteran of biking it will hopefully stand out as a very capable, competition-ready machine. That does not mean you have to line up a season of competitive ventures to make the most out of it, but it is nice to know that this is the type of kit that makes world champions as well as enabling amateurs to have fun at the weekend.

Sitting between the Scott Scale 30 and the Scott Scale 10, this is a formidable range of mountain bikes.

Each year the weight of the frames used in these high performance mountain bikes seems to drop further and the Scott Scale 20 2011 is no different, with its 899 gram weight attributable to its carbon frame. The promotional material claims it is one of the lightest ever made. Whilst gradually shaving the weight off may not be a priority for you or I, it definitely translates into improved performance when you are out and about, and one quick ride will prove my point. Weight has an impact on speed and the less you have to lug around with you the more energy you will have to pour into forward motion, which is always a good thing.
