Come talk to a Scott Expert
Being experts in metal fabrication and sports design, Scott began delivering high-end steel and aluminum bikes to riders hungry for dirt. Constantly experimenting, they also invented aerodynamic road bars which proved to be decisive in Greg Lemond’s eight second victory over Laurent Fignon in the 1989 Tour de France. When everyone wanted bar-ends on their mountain bikes, Scott did one better with a one-piece extended bar made from extremely light aluminum that weighed less than most other handlebars alone. As the market changed and more brands offered copycat bikes, the Scott brand receded from North America, though they maintained a great reputation and strong sales in Europe and the rest of the world. The second wave of US-destined Scott bikes featured super-light and durable carbon frames that got both road and mountain riders wanting “more carbon fiber in their diets.” Today, Scott Bikes continues to push sports-specific technology from both their Swiss based European offices and North American HQ, now located in our hometown, Salt Lake City, Utah. With access to near-endless mountain biking trails and high-altitude road riding, Scott road and mountain bikes are endlessly tested and proven on the world’s most demanding terrain.
