Nude Shock by FOX

Nude Shock by FOX

Our new FOX Nude is the result of our successful partnership with FOX. The Nude project is a combination of both, SCOTT's unique patents and technology as well as FOX's suspension performance and experience. The goal was to create a rear shock that gains maximum performance in every riding situation while remaining lightweight. The FOX Nude works exclusively with our patented TwinLoc system and comes stock on both 27.5" and 29" versions.

This new shock is a completely new development with the most advanced air spring and damping system. It features positive air volume micro-adjust with replaceable volume reducers custom tuned for each model and size. Both travel modes have separate damper settings relative to their travel length and effective forces. When collecting data for the new shock project, we also calculated rider input data, including forces such as the rider’s gyro-scoping pedal stroke and its' effects on the suspension. We simulated a rider's pedaling and jerky motions made while pedaling or clearing obstacles, and measured their influence on the suspension. Many other designs assume that a rider is static and coasting, or they only include acceleration forces on the suspension and drivetrain. We are more concentrated on suspending the movement of the rider instead of negating pedaling forces.

The FOX Nude features a low profile rebound control and mode control pulley for uninterrupted access to water bottles. The lightest FOX Nude shock weight(6.5x1.5") is 260g.

29 Wheels

29 Wheels

Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute  when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 26” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger.
• Best Roll-Over Performance
• Carries Momentum
• Maximum Traction surface
• Best stability on easy trails
• Lowest suspension stress
• Great for larger frame sizes
• Increase stability on long curve

Direct Post Mount

Direct Post Mount

We've saved even more weight by eliminating bulky brake hardware for mounting the rear caliper and integrated a direct post mount to the chain stay. This mounting position also decreases the load the brakes apply to the swingarm parts.

Tapered Headtube

Tapered Headtube

The Scale and Spark feature a tapered head tube for increased stiffness, safety, confidence, and control.

Adjustable BB Height

Adjustable BB Height

The Spark employs an adjustable geometry by way of a shock mount chip in the linkage. By changing the shock mount chip--simply removing it and flipping it in either mounting position--you affect the bottom bracket height by 7mm, which also affects the head tube angle by 0.5 degrees. The Spark is the only XC/Marathon bike on the market that offers this feature.
