Scott Spark 10 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Spark 10 Overview

The Scott Spark 10 mountain bike is returning with a refreshed setup for 2011 and it is literally packed with kit over which the avid bikers out there will be able to drool. If you are wondering whether the latest edition is weighed down with top of the line features or still the light weight champion that it has always been, read on for a deeper look.

The Scott Spark 10 seems to have adopted a colour scheme which is becoming more and more common amongst outdoor sporting enthusiasts. The blend of black and green is usually associated with a particular energy drink firm which has managed to get its teeth into many different extreme pursuits and while some might be put off by this design, I myself find it to be appealing and definitely suggestive of the hardcore setup offered by this mountain bike.

The lightweight nature of the Scott Spark 10 range and the resultant speed which these bikes can achieve has not been dampened for this latest version, whose carbon frame and components allow it to edge out many of its rivals when it comes to a flat-out run. Ride is enhanced thanks to the 110mm rear travel which you can adjust to provide more traction as required.
