Scott Spark 2019 Range Guide

Back for 2019, the Scott Spark 2019 range is built for World Cup races yet ready for any type of rider. Scott have redesigned the range to give improved control and a lighter frame. We're going to take a closer look at the range to find out what makes this bike one of the best in its class.

The Scott Spark range was created as the perfect XC bike, with optimised frame designs and incredible technologies, this range is ready for every trail. New for 2019, Scott have redeveloped existing features and created technical solutions to make this range one of the best. The Scott Spark range has featured many times on the World Cup circuit, ridden by Olympic Champion and 6x World Champion Nino Schurter. Within the range you have three different families: Spark, Women's, and RC (Racing Concept, with lighter, more race-driven MTB's).

Technologies

Dedicated Geometry

This year, Scott have updated the Spark range to mimic modern race bike geometry. The Spark family is divided into three distinct models (Spark, RC, and Women's, this distinction means each model is tailored to the intended rider. This means a better ride-feel and comfort, perfect for seasoned riders to those just starting out.

Boost technology

Boost technology was created by SRAM as a way to create more room around the crankset to allow for better optimised bikes. Boost is designed as a complete system so drivetrain performance isn't compromised. Even though it pushes the cogs three millimetres outboard, the crank-arm Q-Factor remains the same as the system's crank-set utilizes front chain-rings that sit a corresponding 3mm outward to ensure the required chain-line.

What this means for you the rider:

  • Increased wheel stiffness and durability
  • Better riding efficiency and bike handling
  • Improved frame geometry and shorter chainstays
  • More clearance for wider tyres

Evolap-Technology

Without delving too deep into the technology and how it works, Evolap-Technology is essentially a computer programme that allows the designers and engineers at Scott to optimise the surface areas, simulate tube structures, and play around with different forces on the virtual bike frame and alter the design accordingly.

Basically, you get a stiffer and more comfortable frame without compromising on weight. Every bike in the Scott Spark range uses this technology.

Optimised Kinematics

Due to the single pivot rocker link layout, with a Trunnion shock mount, the new Spark range gives a sensitive feel at the top of the travel and the optimal support from sag point onwards.

Key Features

Frame, Forks, and Shocks

Within the Scott Spark range, there are a few different types of frame material used. The lower end models feature alloy and the top end carbon, with both being superlight it's really comes down to your budget when choosing between the two.

The Scott Spark range features a mixture of Fox and Rockshox, with 120mm front travel in both the women's and Spark range and 100mm in the RC range. All come with lockout for when you want a more efficient climb. The rear shocks are a mixture of X Fusion and Fox with different levels as you move up through the range.

Groupset

Groupsets start off with SRAM Eagle NX and goes up to Gold. All models come with a 1x system (but can accommodate 2x drivetrains), this is thanks to the SRAM Boost technology mentioned earlier in the guide. The whole range comes as 12 speed, ideal for any kind of trail and incline.

Wheels

All bikes in the range come with hydraulic disc brakes. Hydraulic disc brakes give a more responsive braking, meaning you can have full confidence when descending those tricky descents. Any of the 7 series bikes (those with the number 700 in) come with 27.5"/650b wheels and any 9 series bikes come with 29" wheels.

The 27.5" wheels will be lighter and snappier on technical trails with good traction. The 29" wheels are by definition larger and therefore heavier. Due to the larger circumference, they maintain more grip on the trail and roll over bumps and holes to give a smoother ride.
