“Entry-level” doesn’t have to equate to “crap”, and it certainly doesn’t with the Scott Scale 50/950. Available in 27.5” or 29” to suit your riding style, this aluminum-framed beauty uses the same geometry as the World Cup pedigreed carbon Scale models. With an oversized and tapered 1 1/8” to 1 1/2” headset, BB92 bottom bracket, and custom butting in the beautifully shaped 6061 tubing, the Scale 750/950 is definitely a step above “entry level.”

 

Scott’s tubing engineers have worked hard to create the custom butting in the aluminum frame, and it is very noticeable in the refined ride quality. The stout front end delivers ultra-precise handling, and the stiff bottom bracket and rear end turn all of your pedaling effort into speed. 6061 tubing provides a bit more durability and comfort, meaning you’ll get years of awesome rides out of the frame without a single worry.

 

Shimano’s XT and SLX components deliver the expected flawless shifting performance they have become so famous for. You’ll never have to worry about being in the right gear with the 38/24 crankset and 11-36 ten-speed cassette. Spin effortlessly uphill, and blast the downhills. Braking duties are handled by the twin-piston Shimano M447 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors. You’ll also love Scott’s RideLoc three-position fork remote lever, paired with the Fox 32 Float Evolution CTD Air 100mm travel fork. No need to stop and adjust your fork to meet the trail conditions- just tap the remote and keep hammering.

 

Bar, stem, seatpost, and saddle are provided by legendary MTB component brand Syncros. The custom wheels with Syncros eyeleted rims have ultra-grippy Maxxis Ikon tires mounted to them and are built to make sure you don’t have to walk off the trail.

 

With such a powerful mix of performance features and components, the Scott Scale 750/950 is a breathtaking beast for the money. Ride fast, have fun, and do it without having to sell your car.
