Product Description

You don't have to be a World Cup racer to know the 2021 SCOTT Spark 970 is fast. The SCOTT Spark family of bikes is not only SCOTT's most successful racing mountain bike, it's also SCOTT's most popular bike. The Spark 970 is a race-ready Cross Country mountain bike with a family-friendly sticker price.

If you're into long, beautiful rides through the mountains, the SCOTT Spark 970 is your bike. If you're thinking about signing up for the big cross country or mountain bike marathon race this weekend, the Scott Spark 970 is your bike. Nimble, agile and fast - the SCOTT Spark 970 provides the perfect entry point to a lifetime of mountain biking.

With 29 inch wheels, the SCOTT Spark 970 tames some of the nastiest trail conditions you'll find. Equipped with Maxxis Rekon 2.4 inch tires, your improved traction keeps you from spinning out or losing control as you maintain contact with the ground longer than with the standard 27.5 inch wheelset. Rocks, roots, gravel ... whatever you encounter will be a challenge conquered on the SCOTT Spark 970.

Adding to the SCOTT Spark 970's appeal is the TwinLoc Suspension System. Capable of shifting from Lockout mode to 120mm or 85mm travel in the rear suspension, the X-Fusion NUDE RX rear shock needs just a flick of a switch on the handlebar to go from Lockout to Traction Control to Descend modes.

The RockShox Judy fork has two modes - Lockout and 130mm travel - to let you pick up the speed on the flats and adjust to tackling rocks and ridges while descending or climbing. SCOTT builds the bike with SRAM MX Eagle drivetrain and dependable Shimano MT201 brakes to give you a quick boost of speed when you put the hammer down while stopping on a dime.

The SCOTT Spark 970 is equipped with its trademark Syncros component group - from the dropper post to the wheels and handlebars - to fine tune every detail. Speaking of details, when you're looking from the top of the sown tube, you'll notice the shock and linkage are clearly asymmetric.  This slight offset to the left balances the entire package to provide a clean, continuous structure to the main pivot through the shock mount.

The SCOTT Spark pedigree is the most successful cross-country full suspension mountain bike in the SCOTT family. Designed for a light, stiff ride with optimized kinematics and host of exquisite details, the SCOTT Spark 970 gives you the same geometry and dependability of its carbon-framed sibling but at an affordable price.
