SCOTT E-MOUNTAIN BIKES FOR SALE ONLINE
The Swiss bicycle manufacturer Scott has been working in the field of sporting goods production since 1958 – at that time still in the USA. The company not only focuses on the bicycle sector, this was added in 1986 with the first mountain bike.
Many of the company’s wheel developments were significant, including a new 1989 aerodynamic handlebar that gave Tour de France winner Greg Lemond a potentially decisive edge over the competition.
The company also plays a key role in Scott E-mountain bikes. The first e-bike was launched in 2011, a model with still relatively young 27.5-inch tires in 2012.
Accordingly, with a Scott e-mountain bike you can enjoy technology that is not only built-in but really is developed.
FOR WHICH AREAS OF USE IS A SCOTT E MTB SUITABLE?
The Scott E MTB models can be divided into two different groups. On the one hand, there are the fully suspended fullys, on the other hand, there are hardtails without rear tire suspension. The former is particularly advantageous for rougher terrain where you drive over hills and dale. The shocks are cushioned by the suspension and there is always traction.
In this way, even demanding routes can be easily mastered. With Scott E mountain bikes as a hardtail, better power transmission is possible due to the lack of rear wheel suspension.
However, it requires more driving skills to stay in control on very rough terrain and endure unsprung shocks.
WHICH TECHNICAL ASPECTS HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED WITH SCOTT E MOUNTAIN BIKES?
If you want to buy an E MTB Scott, you can choose your individually preferred tires in both variants. Depending on the model, both full suspension bikes and hardtails are available with 27.5 and 29-inch tyres. The 29-inch tires have better-rolling resistance, resulting in higher speeds and a more stable ride. Especially with the hardtail, the missing rear wheel suspension can at least be compensated for a little.
The 27.5-inch tires on Scott E mountain bikes, on the other hand, offer better handling than 29-inch tires, but offer better driving performance than the 26-inch tires that were common in the past.
The very low weight of the Scott E MTB is also striking. The hardtails in particular are designed to be relatively light at less than 21 kilograms – despite the aluminum frame. The Fullys range between 22 and 23.5 kilograms.
WHAT OTHER TECHNICAL COMPONENTS ARE INSTALLED ON THE SCOTT MTB E BIKE?
Scott E mountain bikes are primarily, but not exclusively, based on the cooperation with Shimano. Among other things, the brake system is from a Japanese manufacturer, as is the engine used. This is mainly framed directly in the frame and is hardly noticeable optically.
But models with a battery built into the bottom bracket can also be found on the Scott E MTB. On the other hand, if you prefer to rely on the proven Bosch technology, you can also do so with the newer models of the Scott E MTB. Depending on the model, the rear derailleur is either from Shimano or SRAM.
WHAT MODELS ARE AVAILABLE AS SCOTT E MOUNTAIN BIKES?
Scott E Genius
The Scott E-Genius is the premium model from the Scott E MTB range. These are designed as full suspension bikes and are a bit more expensive, but they also offer maximum performance and comfort. In this way, every off-road tour can be mastered easily and above all with driving pleasure.
Scott E Spark
If you want something cheaper, you should take a closer look at the models from the Scott E-Spark series. These are slightly cheaper than the top models from the E-Genius range but offer a very complete driving experience on all imaginable routes. Above all, the perfect balance of the chassis speaks for the Scott MTB E-Bike.
The Scott E-Scale is a hardtail bike. Here you will find a harmonious mixture of high-quality and cheaper, but still powerful components. These enable an all-round successful driving experience with an excellent price-performance ratio at the same time.
