Get your kids up to speed and shredding hard with the new Ransom 400 & 600, with pro-level, kid-specific geometry, suspension and components!
Every data point of the SCOTT Ransom 900 Tuned hints at a love for speed and big hits: 29” wheels, 170 mm travel, 64.5° head angle. On the trail, however, the bike turned out to be one of the most versatile of the test field. Read on to find out why.
If the Scott Ransom is a bike that you’re unfamiliar with, you’re not alone. That’s in part due to the fact that before this year, the bike was last produced in 2006. The 2019 model comes with more suspension, bigger wheels, and a list of adjustments that help it stand out from the noise. The Ransom strikes me as a very technical bike. There are many adjustments to be made to the suspension, shock linkage, wheel size and rear spring curve. I imagine while listing the attributes Scott wanted for the new Ransom, the engineers made a long list and said, “Yes, all of it.” This is not a bike that was slapped together, but a project designed to push the envelope in a sensible way. This Ransom 910 features a complex twin lock system that actuates the front fork and rear shock simultaneously with two adjustments. With the flip of your left thumb you can send the bike into one of two setups. The first is a firmer “traction mode” which effectively lifts the bottom bracket height and firms the suspension. The second is a full lockout mode—front and rear. The rear shock features an additional adjustment that I haven’t experienced before. The Fox Nude rear shock has a ramp adjustment that changes the size of the shock’s air chamber to give a more linear feel or progressive ramp. Riders are also able to pick their wheel size. The bike that was tested came with 29 inch hoops, but you can also opt to run 27.5 wheels if that’s your thing.
The shuttle bike that isn’t afraid to pedal
One of the most versatile, fun to ride and beautiful bikes we've ridden! The new Scott Ransom does everything well and excels in certain areas, making it our bike of the year.
The Scott Ransom replaces the old Genius LT and builds on the success of the shorter travel Genius and Spark (our previous Trail Bike of the Year winners).
