Scott Scale 940: elite performance at a contained price

A very recurrent question we often have to face is: which mountain bike would you recommend me to buy? Obviously it is not easy to answer and it depends on many personal and particular variables. But we can confirm that the Scott Scale 940 is usually in the majority of our answers. For performance and price this mountain bike is perfect for all those who enjoy the XC and XCM and don't want to give up anything.

Scott Scale 940, a hit on the target

The presentation card of the Scale model is overwhelming and is that it is surely the hardtailed mountain bike with the most World Cup victories since its current version was introduced. Nino Schurter has had a lot to do with this. A very light and stiff bike but praised for the comfort it offers thanks to its construction and advanced geometry.

World Champion and World Cup winner Kate Courtney herself has said that the comfort of the rear triangle allows her to save energy on both uphills and downhills.

Among the key points of the Scott Scale 940's frame we can highlight above all its lightness. Made of HMF carbon, the 940 frame stops the scale at 1139g, partly thanks to Scott's own Evo-Lap technology. With it the surface is optimized during the construction to reduce the material used without compromising the stiffness of the whole.

The comfort of the Scale 940, which the brand claims is 47% more comfortable than its previous version, lies in its SDS2 technology, which provides a specific design in the new Scale frame to have controlled flexion in the parts of the frame that improve the cyclist's comfort and guarantee optimum absorption of vibrations, not only in the saddle but also in the climbing position on the pedals.

A very balanced assembly, the key of the Scale 940


In our opinion, the real secret of the success of the Scott Scale 940 is to combine a top-of-the-range frame with a very accurate assembly that will allow us both to face any rally or stage race and to improve our performance without the bike setting a limit.

The RockShox Judy fork performs well on the entire Scale 940 as it is a lightweight, multi-purpose suspension with a boost standard that does not compromise on either stiffness or contained weight.
Full 1x12 drivetrain by SRAM
Shimano MT200 brakes with 180 and 160 discs. You won't miss out any braking power in every situation 
The SCOTT RideLoc remote control is perfectly integrated into the handlebar
Among the Syncros components that give shape to the whole, the Belcarra saddle stands out for its comfort. Perfect for long days on the bike
The Syncros X-25 wheels with Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29x2.25" tyres give the Scale 940 a very elegant and modern look, while allowing you to drive over any terrain without fear of getting a flat tyre at first.
For less than 1,800 euros the Scott Scale 940 seems to us to be a perfect option for those who are looking for a mountain bike with which to enter the competition or who simply want a bike that will not fall short in the coming years
