Scott has been putting race rigs under some of the world’s fastest cross country riders for decades now. But that doesn’t mean its bikes are treacherously twitchy or narrow-bar-minded off the trail and if you like to mix miles with smiles then the Scale 960 is a belter for doing just that.
That’s not to say it’s lacking serious flat-out talent. Scott’s carbon race frames are crazy light, but its alloy frames have never been far behind and are actually lighter than a lot of the composite competition from other brands. The multi-butted, subtly shaped frame gets internal cable routing for clean lines plus a post mount rear brake for easy adjustment and tapered head tube too.
Neat internal routing makes for clean aesthetics
Whatever frame size you ride you’ve a choice of wheel sizes too as the Scale 760 uses 27.5in wheels with an otherwise identical spec rather than limiting you to bigger wheels in bigger frames and vice versa.
But still fun
