1749 grams built with perfection bred to win

Countless world cup wins, one champion ride.

The SCOTT Spark is not only one of the most successful full suspension bikes on the World Cup circuit, it’s also our most popular bike for non-racers. The light and stiff race proven frame design has always appealed to a broad spectrum of riders, from elite Cross-Country and marathon racers to casual enthusiast trail riders. Thanks to numerous tech features, the Spark`s versatility has been in a class of its own for many years.


"The new Spark is packed with race dedicated tech features, I couldn’ t ask for a more race-optimized package."

Nino Schurter / 4x World Champion


The Racing Concept- RC is at the center of our brand heritage. SCOTT RC products have equipped the winners of World Cup Overalls, World Championships and Olympic medals. The new generation of Scale and Spark frame platforms contains a dedicated RC collection which comprises the lightest and most race-driven mountain bikes, SCOTT has ever built.

Thanks to the Boost standard, all our 1x-optimized RC frames are even stiffer than ever before. The new RC family consists of 16 high-end, race-dedicated models. The RC family includes all options - hardtail or full-suspension, and 27.5” or 29” wheel size geometries. All RC models come with 100mm of travel.

Our approach with the new Spark was fairly simple – the frame built to suit the best of the best also had to suit everybody. The technologies utilized in the new Spark platform will push the bike’s boundaries again and make this latest iteration the greatest yet. Yet despite the Spark’s visual simplicity, the bike is loaded with technical features and details. The frame includes a host of minute, exquisitely detailed technical solutions which in total make it one of the best overall cross-country full suspension packages.

New Carbon fibers

The benchmark weight of 1749 gr was not only achieved by utilizing the lightest and most exclusive carbon fibers but also thanks to our sophisticated carbon lay-up process.

EvoLap-Technology

Thanks to our proprietary EvoLap-Technology, we are able simulate different forces on a virtual frame model and adjust frame construction accordingly. This allows us to build frames

Specific 1x Designs

The race-dedicated frames of the Spark RC Series are designed for 1x-only drivetrains in order to deliver the most rigid and lightweight bikes to racers. The Spark Series can accommodate both 1x and 2x drivetrains to meet the needs of recreational riders.

Boost Technology

The Boost Technology results in increased wheel stiffness and improved tire clearance. On the Spark project, we wanted to go beyond the basics and reap all the benefits of this innovation by optimizing frame design and geometry.

Optimized Kinematic

Thanks to a single pivot rocker link layout with a Trunnion shock mount, the new Spark offers sensitive characteristics at the beginning of the travel, the perfect support from sag point onwards plus an optimized end progression.

Dedicated geometry

We’ve brought the Spark up to date with our own interpretation of modern race bike geometry. By splitting the Spark family into three distinct models we were able to tailor specific geometry for a wide range of riders and applications.



Syncros SL Line

SL concept

We worked together with Syncros to develop the SL components line that follows the same philosophy of our new bikes:

  • Reduce The weight
  • Add more comfort
  • Increase the structural rigidity

Better integration with the frame
