Scott Scale 29 RC 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 29 RC Mountain Bike

Scott delivers a nimble slip of a beast in the form of the Scale 29 RC 2011 mountain bike. As its name appropriately suggests this will hardly make an impact on your scales given its carbon frame hovering a little under 949 grams in weight. Consequently, it takes the title as the lightest hardtail mountain bike on the planet. Of course, weight is not everything, so will you have to be a serious rider to make the most of this new bike?

Despite its lightness I like the sturdiness that is suggested by carbon frame bikes such as the Scott Scale 29 RC 2011. Scott has used components from Ritchey, Fox and Schwalbe so you know that it will run efficiently, providing the user plenty of opportunity to convert their calories into some outdoor fun whether they have a penchant for competition or something a little more light-hearted.
