Spanish Solobici magazine tested and reviewed the 29er version of the SCOTT Scale. Here is what the editors wrote: "This is a pro racing bike made for high level mountain bike competitions. Fast and reactive, the Scale is an unique racing bike made from and for the pros. It has a really stiff frame and as soon as it’s time to push hard on the pedals, you can be sure your energy input will be transferred directly to the wheel without any loss - It’s unbelievable how efficient it is.

The geometry is perfect thanks to the position of the handlebars. The bike is quick to react and offers safe and pure control at all times. It is a 29er with the same efficiency as a 26er - but with additional shock absorption."
