Scott Scale 40 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale 40 Mountain Bike

Whenever the range of Scott mountain bikes is mentioned you are sure to hear talk of extreme speed and class-leading lightweight construction. Thankfully the promise of all the hype is largely true thanks to some cutting edge materials and technology all working in unison to provide a great racing experience.

The Scott Scale 40 is obviously best suited to racing off-road and this has been taken into consideration throughout its design. The Rock Shox Rebra RL fork provides 100mm of travel that is rebound adjustable whilst the cables are housed out of harm’s way so that no amount of mud and environmental hazards can put paid to your best efforts. The frame is constructed from a feather light alloy that will not weigh you down or give up under intense pressure.

Although the Scott Scale 40 2011 mountain bike is setting its sights on the enthusiasts’ market, it is not boring, bland or purely functional. I really like what Scott has done with the white and grey colour scheme and anyone who is a connoisseur when it comes to materials will want to run their hands all over the Scale 40 to get a feel of the sturdy and premium nature of its components and finish.
