Product Info

If long days of ripping singletrack are your jam, the Scott Spark 970 Complete Mountain Bike should be on your short list. An aluminum version of Scott's fastest full-squisher, this bike Sparks joy with amazing adjustable geo, a very dependable component group, and an objectively beautiful design. As a XC bike that can handle its own in the downcountry realm too, the Spark is a solid performer.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Spark 3 Alloy SL 6011 Aluminum FrameWith custom butted and hydroformed tubes, a tapered headtube, and Boost spacing, this frame shares its geometry with its carbon Spark cousins.

TwinLoc Suspension SystemWith TwinLoc, a rider can effectively control the complete frame, fork, and shock as a system. Why does this matter? A bike with 150mm of suspension travel, correctly set up, has more sag than a bike with 130mm. It's that extra travel that makes it more fun to ride and more capable on the descents, but the greater sag has an oversized effect on the bike's geometry and climbing performance. That's where TwinLoc matters. Via a handlebar remote, you can choose from three bikes in one!

X-Fusion NUDE 5 RLX Rear ShockWith new seal designs and materials chosen to optimize performance and increase durability, this shock is a great match for XC bikes. Tuned for excellent small-bump sensitivity and overall efficiency, this shock is perfect in Scott's TwinLoc system.
