after the multi part, multi wobble carbon frameset of the Intoxica “freeride”, but Scott look to have done their homework on this one.The front triangle layout is almost identical to the aluminium G-Zero bikes and the single, mid-pivot swingarm is specced on both bikes.
Built as a monocoque, rather than bonded tubes, the carbon is layed into a mould, and a high-pressure air bag is inflated, then withdrawn after the epoxy resin sets. All the frame fibres are positioned to put them in a
position of maximum “pull” loading, with the top tube fibres looping round
the headtube and all the way back to the seat mast. As we haven’t ridden it, yet, we can’t comment on stiffness but Scott maintain that’s been a priority. Quoted frame weights of 1.88kg (4.14 lbs)
including the rear shock, build up into a 8.4 kg (18.5 lb) complete
bike with the Strike 10, making it the lightest pivoted, full travel
suspension bike available. Bonkers.With proven race results and test performance from the impressive handling
G-Zero bikes of the last two years we’ve got our names down for a test very
shortly and let you know what this featherweight feels like on the trails and
whether it really measures up to its claims on the BIKEmagic “Scales of
