The Contessa Spark is a full suspension HMF carbon fiber bike with a Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes that is the perfect partner for marathons, stage races, and all day fun.
Direct Post Mount
Scott saved even more weight by eliminating bulky brake hardware for mounting the rear caliper and integrated a direct post mount
to the chain stay. This mounting position also decreases the load the brakes apply to the swingarm parts.
The Spark features a tapered head tube for increased stiffness, safety, confidence, and control.
Adjustable BB Height
The Spark employs an adjustable geometry by way of a shock mount chip in the linkage. By changing the shock mount chip, simply removing it and flipping it in either mounting position, you affect the bottom bracket height by 7mm, which also affects the head tube angle by 0.5 degrees. The Spark is the only XC/ Marathon bike on the market that offers this feature.
IDS SL Dropout System
Interchangeable and lightweight, the IDS-SL dropout system works with 142x12mm, 135x12mm and 135x5mm QR rear axle standards. Shred the turns more aggressively and with enhanced control, because the rear end is laterally stiff.
Rock Shox DNA3 System
A brand new feature and the collaboration of SCOTT and RockShox is the DNA3 system. This allows the extension of TwinLoc’s three unique shock modes to the fork. Previously, the TwinLoc controlled the travel settings only of the shock, with the ability to lockout both the shock and fork. Now with the remote TwinLoc lever, you can not only lock shock and fork, both you can also control the traction mode or full mode of both shock and fork with a simple flick of the switch. The Spark is the only bike on the market that offers this adjustment and it comes on all models, 26” and 29”, that are equipped with the Nude2 shock.
Carbon Swingarm and Dropouts
On the carbon swingarms and dropouts they used Scott’s IMP5 carbon technology just like with the mainframe
