Scott Scale 29 Pro 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 29 Pro Mountain Bike

The Scott Scale 29 Pro mountain bike looks great on paper, like most high-end products. This is largely thanks to the fact that this latest edition holds the honour of being rated as the lightest 29-inch hardtail mountain bike on the market anywhere in the world, as a result of its carbon frame. In terms of bragging rights this pretty much takes the cake, but of course real life performance can be very different from sterile facts such as these, so a more thorough investigation is required.

If you are interested in such things then this award-wining low weight is 949 grams, which is definitely impressive. The process of creating the carbon frame not only results in a lightweight final product but also in superior strength and serious prowess when it comes to transferring the power of your pumping limbs into dirt-churning forward motion.

This kind of prowess comes at a price, so you should expect to see some of Scott’s hardtail bikes with alloy frames retailing for considerably less. However, if money is no object or you consider this an investment then you might easily justify investing in such a robust piece of kit.
