SCOTT Carbon Dropout System
SCDS uses a carbon fiber dropout with a replaceable alloy hanger. A lightweight, precise and durable alloy disc brake mount improves heat distribution while braking. Carbon chain stays with integrated carbon dropout shave additional grams from the complete bike. Found on the Spark, Scale, Genius, full Addict road range.
One carbon piece tubular seatstay, chainstay & dropout combined with Direct Postmount 160 to shed an additional 25 grams. = Homogeneous structure (less material, optimized performance, less weight)
Press Fit Bottom Bracket
By implementing PFBB30 standards, bonded alloy pieces are no longer utilized to install threaded bottom brackets, saving 30 grams of frame weight and increase stiffness.
The new Scale dispels the myth that a light bike cannot be stiff. Due to a targeted layup structure in high stress areas, the use of the PFBB30/PFBB92 standards, and the incorporation of a tapered head tube, SCOTT has achieved results in proportion to weight that have not previoulsy been attained. Comparison of the old Scale vs. the new Scale Steering area Stiffness + 10% Bottom bracket Stiffness + 15% Bottom bracket Stiffness + 10% We always measure and test all our frames in our laboratories. The accrued data base has been used to validate the computer analyses, which were key in optimizing the new Scale by: -reducing maximum material stress -mitigating stress concentrations -evaluating stiffness and deformation.
HMX-NET Carbon Fiber
While we already use the proven HMF composite fiber on all our composite high-end bike models, we have improved upon conventional HMF material. This new fiber, which is produced exclusively for Scott, offers 20% more stiffness and is employed on all the areas that need additional rigidity. This new material also allows us to reduce weight and improve riding characteristics. NET stands for Naked External Tubeset, where the frame sheds its exterior cosmetic layer, which saves even more weight.
IMP™ Carbon Mainframe
Our engineers have developed IMP™, the newest technology applied to carbon production. Our proprietary process allows for lighter construction by removing 11% of the material from the headtube intersection while increasing strength by utilizing high modulus stressed fibers for more precise fiber placement in critical areas. To compliment the IMP™ process, our frames benefit from our Naked External Tubeset™ which eliminates the cosmetic carbon layer to shave precious grams. Both HMX and HMF fibers are used in our carbon frames ensuring the utmost durability, security, and longevity for the frame."
SDS: Shock Damping System
SDS minimizes high frequency vibration from the road, enabling a damping effect without losing performance. SCOTT has engineered a balance of vertical compliance (a measure of how smoothly a bike rides) and lateral stiffness (associated with responsiveness during sprinting, acceleration, and climbing) in both the rear triangle and the fork. By maximizing vertical compliance, SDS cancels road vibrations, increasing rider confidence, stability and comfort. Found on CR1 and Scale.
