He introduced a tapered ski pole which eventually changed the course of ski racing. The company’s primary goal is to launch technological innovations and breakthroughs. In the year 1986, Scott finally introduced the company’s initial offering to cycling: the mountain bike. Three years after, Scott gave birth to the first aero bar.

The aero bar is considered as one of the most important inventions in bicycling history. American Greg Lemond used the aero bar or the aerodynamic handlebar during the 1989 Tour de France. The year 1991 signaled the company’s full entry into mountain bike production. Scott also introduced mountain bike suspension in the same year. Unishock suspensions helped Ruthie Matthes win America’s bid for the MTB World Championship. Afterwards, the company was able to furnish its mountain bike suspension. In 1992, Scott released its first edition of mountain bikes with full suspension. After the completion and successful manufacture of Scott full suspension mountain bikes, the company also ventured into the production of cycling shoes and helmets.
