Each SCOTT Spark is imbued with championship-winning DNA. As one goes up the model range, those character traits are amplified little by little, making the bike even more enjoyable, with the top Spark being the ultimate representation of what the Spark platform is possible of. With some of the very best kit on market today, the 2020 SCOTT Spark 900 Ultimate AXS is the only choice when only the very best will suffice.
The Spark 900 Ultimate AXS starts life with SCOTT’s top-end HMX carbon fiber and forms a trunnion-mount shock with it. SCOTT then employs their TwinLoc suspension remote lever, which allows the bike to change between three unique suspension settings (full travel, traction mode, lockout) based on terrain. This isn’t just a three-position lockout; the traction mode closes an air chamber in the rear shock and changes its overall spring rate, and firms up the spring rate of the fork as well. Traction mode overall steepens the bike’s seat tube angle, raises the bottom bracket, and brings the front wheel in closer to allow for an extremely efficient climber without sacrificing suspension on the descent.
The Spark also receives an upgraded 44mm-offset fork for greater stability at high speeds and clearance for up to a 29 x 2.6” tire. There’s also slack 67.2-degree head tube angle, long reach, and a just-right bottom bracket height. It corners well, thanks to its low 24-pound weight, and it feels superbike-quick when climbing, translating every bit of effort into forward momentum.
The 2020 SCOTT Spark 900 Ultimate AXS is the Spark in full glory, just as SCOTT imagined it. A SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS drivetrain highlights the Kashima-coated Fox 34 Float Factory Stepcast 120mm fork, Fox NUDE EVOL 120mm rear shock, and Fox Transfer Kashima dropper seatpost. Shimano offers their Shimano XTR M9100 brakes, Syncros contribute their Syncros Silverton 1.0 carbon wheelset and provide their best carbon handlebar, stem, and saddle. The bike is available in four sizes (S-XL) and weighs in at a scant 24.25 lbs.
