2022 Scott Spark RC Review | 6 upgrades to turn a Spark into a Spark RC race bike

May 2022

Which bike to pick out of the Scott Spark RC and the regular Spark? We go through the differences and similarities, and how we adapted our Spark 910 to turn it into one of the best race bikes we've ever tested. Get the lowdown in our Scott Spark RC review.

Pros
  • Ridiculously plush for an XC race bike

  • Outstanding descending control

  • Traction Control mode offers instantaneous climbing boost

  • Stealthy frame design hides shock from the elements

  • Adjustable geometry widens versatility

Cons
  • If you don't like suspension remotes, the Spark isn't for you

  • Headset cable routing adds maintenance frustration

  • Not the quietest bike

  • Not the lightest XC frame

Scott Spark 900 Tuned AXS review

Tom MarvinNov 2021

Fast and furious, but can feel a bit like a coiled spring at times when you’re really hauling

Pros
  • Supremely smooth suspension over large and smooth hits

  • Picks up speed like nothing else

  • Up-to-date geometry with some adjustability

Cons
  • A bit of trail induced twang

  • If it pumped through terrain better, I’d be happier

SCOTT Spark 900 Tuned AXS 2022 first ride review – The new benchmark for integration?

Peter WalkerJun 2021

SCOTT introduce the all-new Spark 900 Tuned AXS 2022. For the upcoming season, the Swiss have redesigned the bike from the ground up and hidden the shock inside the frame. We've already had the chance to test SCOTT’s beefed-up XC racer for you.

Pros
  • Very low system weight and fast acceleration

  • Great integration and elegant look

  • Cool features such as the SRAM TireWiz and minitool integrated in the thru-axle

Cons
  • Long seat tube restricts the freedom of movement

  • Spec not suitable for harder trail riding

  • Puncture-prone XC tire on a trail bike doesn’t provide enough puncture protection
