SCOTT E-Scale 720 Electric Bike
The SCOTT E-Scale 720 is new from SCOTT for 2017, and is the middle spec of three hard tail eMTBs within the 700 series. It features high levels of equipment and components.
This top of the range 27.5″ hard tail electric mountain bike is bursting with high quality components and an abundance of features. Powered by the Bosch Performance CX motor and huge 500Wh battery, the SCOTT E-Scale 720 is a nimble and agile performer, weighing in at only 20.1kg. The high torque CX motor from Bosch finds itself semi-integrated into the frame for an even more balanced and sporty look. The 720 series of ebikes are designed for the rigours of off road, and are renowned for their strong build and high quality.
The exhilarating ride of the SCOTT E-Scale 720 is equally matched by its flexibility. Suspension is provided by the high performing RockShox Recon Silver air forks with 100mm of travel. They feature a simple Poploc lockout and tapered steerer for strength. This rugged performer copes admirably on even the most demanding terrain, and sticks to trails like glue.
Syncros X-25/32H rims seated with Maxxis Forekaster Kevlar Tubeless Ready tyres provide a tough and resilient wheel on which the 720 performs admirably. DT Swiss Champion spokes provide even greater strength. Gear changing is solid, slick and reliable. The Shimano RD-M7000-SGS DM Shadow Plus10-speed derailleur provides a wide range of gearing via an 11-36T cassette, and makes all terrain accessible. Gear changes take place effortlessly via Shimano Deore SL-M610 Rapidfire Plus shifters. The frame on the E-Scale is precision made, and utilises 6061 Alloy custom butted tubing with internal cable routing for smart lines and stunning good looks. Scott continues to use additional quality components with the Syncros brand on the headset, handlebar, handlebar stem and seatpost.
The SCOTT E-Scale 720 is a huge performing electric mountain bike, equipped with an excellent level of components.
