Jaws dropped at the sight of the 2011 Scott Scale 29 RC at Interbike. The 29er is claimed to be the lightest in the world.
The 2011 Scott Scale 29 RC weighs in at a astonishing 949 grams. When the frame was manufactured, a IMP3 carbon process was applied plus HMX-net fiber runs through the tubing. SDS engineering went into the frame to dampen shock.
The forks on the 2011 Scale 29 RC are Fox 32 F29 Fit and 100mm of travel. Other components running on the Scale 29 RC are SRAM XX, 20 speed, Avid XX carbon disc brakes, 42/28 double chainring, and PF BB92 bottom bracket.
Tubeless ready, the 2011 Scale 29 RC comes equipped with DT Swiss XR 29 wheelset and Schwalbe Rocket Ron EVO Kevlar tires.
