Scott Scale 30 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 30 Overview

With new technology comes new products and the Scott Scale 30 2011 mountain bike proves that even tried and tested formulas can be improved upon as technology advances. The frame of this high performance racing bike weighs less than a family sized box of Corn Flakes – pause for effect – and serious work has been put into sourcing excellent components to produce a great all-rounder. This bike will help level the playing field when competing in mountain bike events, as clichéd as that sounds, hey, we’ve already done the box of corn flakes thing.

If you read the vital statistics for the Scott Scale 30 you should be suitably convinced of its boasts concerning speed and performance. Items from the Shimano SLX range and the presence of RockShox Rebra forks show that it means business. It should also indicate that this is a bike that does not look to gain speed just because of its lightweight design but also because it seeks to get as much traction as possible, allowing you to focus your energy and not expend any of it without getting something in return.

I am a big fan of the design of all Scott mountain bikes and the Scale 30 is no exception, with its mixture of grey and black never distracting from the serious capabilities which it offers. For the price, this is a superb bike and one that you’ll find hard to beat.
