In late 2006, SCOTT released the Spark, a hard-charging full-suspension cross country mountain bike that was faster than just about anything else on the market. In the years since and iterations to come, the Scott Spark has become a three-headed beast of a bicycle, with three versions tailor-made for different riding styles. The most famous version of the Spark is the championship-winning Spark RC 900, seen under the legs of Nino Schurter and Kate Courtney. The 2020 SCOTT Contessa Spark RC 900 cross country mountain bike is a fast, efficient 100mm full-suspension mountain bike made specifically for women.
The SCOTT Contessa Spark RC starts life with Scott’s HMX-level carbon frame and swingarm and combines it with their newest trunnion-mount suspension placement. Small-bump compliance is better than ever as a result, but the most impressive piece is its efficiency; the pivotless rear swingarm has huge chainstays for improved stiffness, but lower overall weight. Scott pair this to their TwinLoc suspension remote lever, allowing riders to adapt the bike to terrain using three unique suspension settings (full travel, traction mode for climbing, lockout). TwinLoc is actuated by cleverly hidden cabling to give the bike a stealthy no-cable look, which along with extremely low weight (23.15 lb complete) and a stiffer pedaling platform, make for a faster, more efficient SCOTT Spark Contessa RC 900.
The 2020 SCOTT Contessa Spark RC 900 is differentiated by its women’s specific approach, with women’s specific (read: lighter-weight) shock tuning, and unique handlebars, stem, grips, and saddle. This model features a SRAM X01 Eagle 1×12 drivetrain, Shimano Deore XT brakes, Syncros Silverton 1.0 carbon fiber wheelset, and Syncros carbon finishing kit. Rock Shox offer their Olympic Gold-winning 100 mm RockShox SID Select+ RL3 fork and RockShox NUDE EVOL 100mm rear shock. The 2020 Scott Contessa Spark RC 900 is available in three sizes (S-L).
