SCOTT Strike eRIDE 710
The Strike eRide 710 from SCOTT is a superb performer that eats up with ease both ascents and descents on the most demanding terrain.
Perfect Balance, Great Performance
Powered by Bosch’s 75Nm high torque engine, the Strike eRide 710 delivers extraordinary performance. Relatively light and highly responsive, the eRide 710 makes its mark on the most demanding trails. Manufacturing ensures an optimised stiffness-to-weight ratio. A huge fully integrated 500Wh battery ensures long rides, and fits seamlessly into the frame.
Virtual 4 Link Frame Design
The eRide utilises a “Virtual Four Link” frame design. The suspension has been honed to work with maximum efficiency and in harmony with SCOTT’s TwinLoc Suspension System. The kinematic suspension curve gives supple small bump sensitivity resulting in exceptional traction characteristics. Consequently, there’s also perfect support in the mid-stroke and a controlled deep stroke for predictable and comfortable bottom outs. Specific pivot placements ensure efficient pedaling to provide huge forward momentum.
Twinloc Suspension System
The TwinLoc Suspension System is a proprietary SCOTT Suspension System. Above all, it allows a rider to control a bikes suspension performance and geometry simultaneously.
TwinLoc helps manage the sag effect in several ways. Most systems only increase low-speed compression in an effort to gain pedaling efficiency. TwinLoc allows changing compression damping, but also to change the spring curve, dynamically altering the geometry of the bike. In Trail mode, the shock is not only firmer, but has dynamically less travel. The bike sits higher, maintains a steep seat angle for those climbs, and becomes more agile. A full lockout mode ensures going up in the most efficient manner possible.
Being able to switch from mode to mode depending on a trails profile at the push of a lever is a feature unique to SCOTT.
High Level Components
The FOX 34 Float Performance Elite Air 150mm forks with 3-modes are ultra responsive. As a result, the eRide is capable of gobbling up almost anything. The ‘Boost’ thru axle widens the hub spacing by 6mm resulting in a flatter spoke angle. Wheels are stiffer and stronger. Chain stay length is shorter for greater agility. Rear suspension is provided via a FOX NUDE EVOL Trunnion, and delivers ultimate compensation whenever required. A tapered headtube ensures superb stiffness and precise steering.
Gearing on the Strike eRide 710 doesn’t get any better. The new SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed and wide range 11-50T cassette work in perfect harmony. Subsequently, gear changing is effortless, reliable and efficient. Wheels are tough, stable and reliable. Maxxis Rekon tyres with Kevlar BeadEXO + SilkShield are tubeless ready and ensure ultra grip and performance. Formula hubs and Syncros rims provide ultra strength and endurance. A perfect match. Braking comes in the form of Shimano BR-M640 ZEE hydraulic disc. In addition, a set of 203mm rotors are more than up to the job. Shimano ZEE brake levers add a nice feel to what is a very responsive and effective system.
The FOX Transfer Dropper Remote dropper seatpost is a nice touch. It facilitates easy handling on all those tricky downhills at the press of a button!
The Strike eRide 710 is a highly desirable full suspension eMTB that delivers superb performance and stunning good looks.
