Scott Scale RC 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Scale RC

With a reputation to keep in pristine condition the Scott Scale RC mountain bike is understandably aggressive in its stance and it aims for speed above all else by packing the latest kit.

If you want to get an idea of how hardcore the Scott Scale RC 2011 mountain bike is you might be interested to learn that the carbon frame that holds all of the components together weighs a hair under 900 grams. This indicates a bike built for speed with racing prowess that few of its rivals can match. With this speed and prestige comes a design that might not be to all tastes. I personally do not mind the all-white tyres mixed with the black and yellow frame accents, but it is understandable if you do not find this particularly appealing.

Whatever qualms you may have about its looks, the Scott Scale RC 2011 mountain bike cannot be faulted when it comes to performance. Its intelligent shock damping system has been engineered to convey the maximum amount of force from your legs through the pedals to the tyres and then the ground, so you will be rewarded for your exertion. All of these features come at a price, but for a well respected brand and a specialist item, you cannot complain.
