Scott Voltage YZ Mountain Bike

The Scott Voltage YZ is a range of mountain bikes designed specifically for use on dirt or street courses. The range is diverse enough to encompass bikes for different price brackets, so hopefully riders will find something that does not push their budgets over the limit.

Scott Voltage YZ 40

The Voltage YZ 40 introduces riders to the more affordable end of the street and dirt scale, with a stiff alloy 6061 alloy frame that features strong hydro formed tubing.

A Suntour XCT V4 fork with preload offers 100mm of travel at the front, with Shimano components making up the drive train and Tektro SCB brakes giving you the kind of control that is necessary on this type of bike.

Araya TX-633 rims and Kenda K905 Dirt tyres do a good job of keeping it together during technical courses. Meanwhile the slack geometry befit’s the Scott Voltage seat post and DJ saddle.

Scott Voltage YZ 30

The Voltage YZ 30 retains the same frame and fork setup as the base model, but this time it adds in Tektro Novela mechanical disc brakes at the front and rear, with 160mm rotors allowing riders to stop swiftly.

Shimano once again contributes a number of components to the transmission of this bike, with the wheelset shared by both the YZ 40 and 30.

Scott Voltage YZ 20

The Voltage YZ 20 brings things forward thanks to the use of the XCM V3 fork from Suntour. You still get 100mm of travel, but this component is lighter and more responsive.

While the Araya TX-633 rims remain, this time they are wrapped in Schwalbe Table Top Sport Active tyres, which is the signature model of professional rider Timo Pritzel.

Scott Voltage YZ 10

A competent collection of Shimano Acera and Alvivo components make up the drive train on this model. You get rapid fire shifters to help you switch quickly and accurately so that you never lose momentum.

The brakes have also been upgraded, this time to the Tektro Draco hydraulic disc family, delivering improved precision and smoothness.

Scott Voltage YZ 0.2

The Scott Voltage YZ 0.2 is the first in the range to feature the alloy D-frame and a single speed setup. The chain stays are specially shortened so that it is easier to perform manuals and also simpler to control the bike while riding on the dirt.

An RST Dirt fork with 80mm of travel is at the front, while Tektro Novel mechanical disc brakes are back in action, controlling the Alex DP20 rims and Schwalbe Table Top Sport Active tyres.

Scott Voltage YZ 0.1

This model follows in the footsteps of its single speed sibling, but this time it features the Voltage B-frame. A Marzocchi Dire Jumper 3 fork delivers 100mm of travel, while hydraulic disc brakes from the Tektro Draco range are also onboard.

Stylish red rims from Alex and the same Schwalbe tyres found on other models are welcome additions in this instance.

Scott Voltage YZ TMO

The most advanced bike of the bunch is the TMO, the A-frame design of which features an interchangeable dropout system, a rear triangle with optimised tyre clearance and a weld technique known appropriately as the Full Nelson.

At the front there is a RockShox Argyle R fork with 100mm of travel and the Avid Elixir 1 brakes are a suitable match for the top notch wheelset. The Scott Pivotal zero offset saddle and seat post work well in this particular setup while the lightweight crankset and hard wearing components keep everything together when the going gets tough on the street or in the dirt.
