Scott Spark 2012

The new 2012 Scott Spark is on its way!

We had the old version as one of our demo bikes and we were very impressed by how light and fast it was but this new version has been completely re-engineered to be even lighter but at same time has gained and an extra 10mm of rear travel.

Introducing the Innovative new Spark—Though the name remains the same, you’ll find nothing stale here. The bike gets a complete construction overhaul and achieves an advanced Technology standard. It’s designed in both 29” and 26” versions to satisfy the appetites of Big Wheelers and Purists alike.

The SPARK frame is built using Scotts IMP5 carbon technology. This means that five parts of the main frame are produced in one single step, in this case the head tube, top tube, seat tube, down tube, and bottom bracket structure all joined in one step while carefully managing the layers for quality and effective use of material. Both HMX and HMF fibers are used in Scott carbon frames ensuring the utmost durability, security, and longevity for the frame.

SCOTT’s patented TwinLoc system is found on the new Spark, with a new feature that allows for traction mode on both shock and fork. Choose between Lockout, Traction mode and Full mode options via handlebar-mounted switch, perfect for Climbing, Riding and Descending. The RockShox DNA3 fork is made exclusively for SCOTT, and offers the same functions as the Nude2 shock. With One Lever you have Total Control of the shock and fork simultaneously.

The bottom bracket is molded as part of the entire swingarm system and uses the PF BB 92 standard, guarantying the rider’s pedal input is efficiently transferred into torque.

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.

Interchangeable and lightweight, the IDS-SL dropout system works with 142x12mm, 135x12mm and 135x9mm QR rear axle standards. Shred the turns more aggressively and with enhanced control, because the rear end is laterally stiff.
