Athletes of SCOTT Sports around the globe celebrated great victories including world champion titles, world cup wins, stage wins at the most prestigious road races, time trials, downhill competitions, triathlon and many more. Looking back, this is what we will remember:

But not only our athletes performed like true champions. With lots of award-winning products like the Eurobike Gold Award for the new ultralight All Mountain Tech line, we look back at a year full of innovations and successful launches. We got the ball rolling for the new 27.5" wheelsize standard, and with the new Scale 700 and the Genius 700 our engineers have built two bikes which will revolutionize different segments in mountain biking.
