Cross country mountain bikes are a different animal compared to the slew of trail bikes and long travel mountain bikes. Efficiency is king, as is body positioning and getting the power down regularly. The SCOTT Spark RC is designed for just that; with myriad World Championship, Gold Medals, and other accomplishments under Nino Schurter, the Spark RC is blisteringly quick. The new 2020 SCOTT Spark RC 900 Team Issue AXS brings race-ready geometry, SRAM Eagle AXS wireless shifting, and quality parts to a bike made for riders looking for podium finishes.
The SCOTT Spark development formula was simple in idea: make a bike that is stiffer, faster, lighter, and better handling than the competition. A trunnion-mount rear shock provides greater small bump compliance and smoother mid-stroke travel while beefing up the bottom bracket at the same time. This leads to one of the lightest carbon frames in its class. SCOTT pair their updated design to their TwinLoc suspension remote lever, allowing riders to adapt to terrain using three different suspension settings (full travel, traction mode, lockout). TwinLoc is actuated by cleverly hidden cabling to give the bike a stealthy no-cable look, which along with the low weight of a carbon HMF frame and a stiffer pedaling platform, make for a faster, more efficient Scott Spark RC Team Issue AXS.
You don’t have to be Nino to know that this is a fast bike. The RockShox SID Select+/Fox NUDE suspension combo, paired to TwinLoc and the quick-shifting SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drivetrain make for an excellent weekend warrior companion.
The 2020 SCOTT Spark RC 900 Team Issue AXS features an HMF carbon frame, paired to Syncros Silverton 2.0 wheelset. SRAM X01 AXS shifters and rear derailleur pair to a SRAM XG-1275 cassette and a SRAM Stylo crankset. Syncros carbon handlebars and seatpost, Shimano Deore XT M8100 brakes, and Maxxis Rekon 29 x 2.35″ tires complete the package. the Spark RC 900 is available in four sizes (SM-XL).
