2016 Scott Scale 720 Plus
Truth be told, I was a little leery of the fork on the new 720 Plus, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it performs exceptionally well! Mater fact, I love the fork! The Scale 720 is an excellent Plus Size hard-tail that will not break the bank. It's lightweight, with proper componentry - built to last - and looks that kill.
-27.5" Plus Technology:
Mountain Biking never stands still. Standards are not written in stone as long as we are constantly improving what we love most: Mountain Biking. Wheel and tire sizes have always been and always will be a hot topic- we have seen this more than ever in the past three years. With "Plus size", there is a new dimension emerging... one that's here to stay.
Stand out features:
-Internal Cable Routing :
Internal cable routing for the shock, front and rear derailleur, seat-post and rear brake gives the bike a cleaner look while protecting the cables from contamination.
-SDS Shock Damping System:
SDS minimizes high frequency vibration from the road, enabling a damping effect without losing performance. SCOTT has engineered a balance of vertical compliance (a measure of how smoothly a bike rides) and lateral stiffness (associated with responsiveness during sprinting, acceleration, and climbing) in both the rear triangle and the fork. By maximizing vertical compliance, SDS cancels most vibrations, increasing rider confidence, stability and comfort. Found on CR1 and Scale.
