The Scott Scale 900 Premium 2013 Mountain bike has a 949 gram HMX carbon fiber frame, 29'' wheels and Premium build provides you with the ultimate race hardtail, no questions asked.
Scott's engineers have developed IMP, the newest technology applied to carbon production. Their proprietary process allows for lighter construction by removing 11% of the material from the headtube intersection while increasing strength by utilizing high modulus stressed fibers for more precise fiber placement in critical areas. Using HMF material, which is produced exclusively for Scott, offers 20% more stiffness and is employed on all the areas that need additional rigidity. SDS (Shock Damping System) minimizes high frequency vibration from the road, enabling a damping effect without losing performance. One carbon piece tubular seatstay, chainstay & dropout combined with Direct Post mount 160 to shed an additional 25 grams. The Spark features a tapered head tube for increased stiffness, safety, confidence, and control.
