A company with a storied past, Scott has won worldwide renown for the cutting-edge technology in all their bicycles. They always push the limits of bicycle weight, design, materials, efficiency and suspension, and enjoy a well-earned reputation as one of world's most advanced bicycle makers.
Scott was founded when an inventive skier, Ed Scott began making tapered aluminum ski poles. The strong, light poles quickly replaced existing bamboo and steel poles and set technical innovation as the company's cornerstone.
Scott bicycles are light, fast and always cutting-edge!
Scott's forward-thinking vision entered cycling in the 80's with their first mountain bike and a revolutionary aero handlebar, which was the key component of Greg LeMond's 8-second victory in the 1989 Tour de France. When he stormed back from a 50-second deficit in just 25 kilometers, he made aero bars an integral part of the cycling world.
Scott's industry-leading innovations soon included their unique Unishock suspension in 1991 and one of first full-suspension mountain bikes in 1992. They created one of the first carbon mountain bikes in 1995. And, as a new millennium dawned, Scott set a record for lightness with the Team Issue road bike, a production frame that tipped the scales at less than 1,000 grams. But Scott would not rest on their laurels. They quickly topped themselves with the 895-gram CR1, the lightest production frame on the market at the time.
Today, the company from Sun Valley is a clear leader. They've outdone themselves again in the weight department, producing some of the lightest road and mountain-bike frames available. In part due to Scott's Integrated Molding Process which "welds" together carbon tubes stripped of all cosmetic layers of carbon to provide incredible weight savings.
