Svou dobrou pověst už má, nicméně jsme Scale RC poněkud upravili, aby byl ještě lepší a rychlejší. Nejlehčí SL rám v RC sérii, vidlice FOX 32 SC, sada Sram XX1 1x12 a nespočet karbonových komponentů Syncros dodá každému jezdci pocit, že může soupeřit s nejlepšími borci světa.

Strength and stiffness are two very different properties of a material. Carbon fibers are available with a wide range of each characteristic. Typically, very stiff fibers are less strong. HMX-SL uses a blend of the highest performance fibers available today, and applies them strategically throughout the frame. MR70 is a new introduction to our layup collection. The raw fiber undergoes an extended refinement process to reach extremely high levels of strength with good stiffness. To further boost frame stiffness, tapes of the exceptionally stiff YS60 fiber are applied along the length of the tubes. Fibers impregnated with a nano resin are also employed in some areas of the frame. This specialist resin improves cohesion between the fibers to toughen the structure.
Our integrated chain guide was developed in collaboration with the SCOTT ODLO MTB Racing Team.
The idea behind was to create a reliable component that helps to avoid dropping chains but that was light, versatile and integrated in the design of the frame. The new Spark chain guide weighs just 23 grams and is easy to assemble thanks to the smart assembly system and can accommodate chain rings from 30 to 36 teeth.
With the proper selection of materials, eighty percent of the work to create a frame is done. But the remaining twenty percent requires most of our efforts. For this reason, our choice of the most advanced carbon fibers in the market is followed by intensive use of specific tools, like FEA(finite element analysis) software, to map out the carbon lay-up.
With FEA software, we can simulate different forces on a virtual model of the frame and adjust the frame construction accordingly. FEA software enables us to create complete virtual prototypes incorporating all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments.
With our Evo-Lap technology we model the frame to optimize the surfacearea, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observethe results of using diff erent configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. Thanks to this extensive computer modeling, we’ve optimized the carbon layers in all the parts of our frame. When the parts were bonded together in the first prototypes, the result was a super light and compact frame without a sacrifice in the stiffness, comfort or impact resistance. The entire range benefitted from our EvoLap technology.
On the new Scale and Spark, to provide a clean look and a functional solution for all the different control cable standards on the market, cable routing is fully internal and designed for full length cable housing. Routing the cables internally omits bulky external hardware and looks cleaner. The cables can endure a longer lifetime as they are protected within the frame. The entry points are machined alloy removable inserts that come along with the frame and can be chosen according to the setup of the bike. Assembling an electronic group or a dropper post will not be a problem and the look will always be clean-cut.
Racers will attest that ride comfort is an essential element of performance. During the development of a hardtail frame, it is essential to distinguish the areas of the frame optimized for comfort from the ones more related to the stiffness.
Many brands in the market offer different solutions to improve those aspects but most of them are limited only to a component or a specific area of the frame. With SCOTT SDS2 technology we go beyond this approach, reinventing the concept of comfort on hardtail frames without adding additional parts or sacrificing pedaling stiffness.To reach our goal, we ran analysis and testing to optimize different shapes of the tubes on the whole frame along with accurate alignment of the carbon fibers. The result on the new Scale frame is specific, controlled flex in areas that increase rider comfort and guarantee optimal absorption of vibrations not only on the saddle but also when the riders standing up on the pedals.
This approach to comfort must not only accommodate the lightest weight attainable, but also maintain stiffness for the sake of pedal efficiency. Further, superior rigidity of the frame ensures accurate handling in the steeper sections. In the new Scale we’ve considered all these aspects to avoid any undesired flexion that would affect performances either climbing or descending .
