The Scott Scale 920 2013 Mountain Bike uses an HMF carbon fiber frame, 29'' wheels and reasonable mix of components to provide great value for the budget conscious racer.
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.
