Armed To Demolish The Trail, The Scott Scale 720 has a Geometry totally inspired by racing at the highest level! Co-developed with Olympic Champion, 5x World Champion and 5x World Cup Champion Nino Schurter, the 2017 Scott Scale 720 has been completely overhauled for the ultimate in hardtail performance. With trickle down tech from the outrageously light RC model, the Scale 720 saves weight over the previous model and offers improved comfort both standing and seated, without sacrificing stiffness. Add in Boost thru axles, new to the 2017 Scale, for added stiffness and handling performance and you get a hardtail with impeccable handling. A rapid Shimano SLX 22 speed drivetrain, Shimano SLX Disc brakes and Syncros components thgroughought combine to give you a hard tail that is just itching to finish first. With a Scale 3 Carbon frame you get a super lightweight, stiff bike with spec tough enough to take whatever you throw at it.

Starting life in 1958 as a ski company, Scott has diversified on numerous occasions to cater for Motocross in 1970 and cycling disciplines. Their first mountain bike was launched in 1986, and shortly afterwards the innovative aero handlebar was created, helping Greg Lemond to win his 1989 Tour de France. By 1991 Scott produced a range of Suspension Mountain Bikes using UniShock, and the following year it's first full suspension MTBs, Cycling shoes and helmets were all released. The next milestone year was 1998, when the G-Zero full suspension MTB was launched, with it's incredibly low weight a major selling point. Their focus was not just off road, and in 2001 the Team Issue road frame was announced, weighing less than 1 kg - making it the world's lightest. Two years later this was replaced by the carbon CR1 frame, weighing a paltry 895g! That same year, their MTB range was supplemented by the Genius, which enabled the rider to adjust travel from one of three settings; lock-out, full travel and just traction. Long time Scott sponsored rider Thomas Frischknecht won the marathon World Championships on this bike. In 2005, Scott moved into the Triathlon genre by releasing the Plasma, a 980g aerodynamic carbon frame, with a 300g seatpost complementing the ride. never to remain complacent, the Addict Road frame was born in 2007, weighing 790g and featuring a feathery 165g seatpost, 330g fork, resulting in an overall build of just 5.9kg (yep, that's 13lbs!) Over the next decade Scott continued to produce lightweight performance innovations, such as the second Genius range, Twin Loc suspension controls and the 899g Scale hardtail range, which Nino Schurter won the MTB World Cup on.
