For 2012, Scott Bikes has reintroduced the hardtail mountain bike called Scale 30 with a completely new design. The new bike weighs in at just 10kg and has a first-rate Scale HMF-NET carbon frame that features a SDS shock damping system, IMP3 tech, and a tapered headtube for better front end stiffness.
With the Scale 30, getting to the races with a guaranteed performance of a topnotch machine does not have to be expensive. This mountain bike owes its low cost to its Rock Shox Reba along with its reliable combination of Avid brakes and Shimano drivetrain.
An affordable HMF carbon-fiber machine, the 2012 Scott Scale 30 Hardtail Mountain Bike is ideal for cross-country racers who are on a budget. Aside from its excellent mix of value and performance, this is also one of the few light bikes that is unfailingly stiff.
