The highly decorated Scout has bike reviewers and riders alike sratching their heads about how capable a mid travel trail bike can be. The Scout has the character of a slopestyle bike that is also extremely cabable to pedal big mileage in any terrain. Redefining what a true trail bike should feel like, the Scout is equally at home slashing turns deep in the backcountry or turning your local trails into a playground. The long front center and 67 degree head angle keep you comfortable and safe; while the short 425mm chainstay and super low bottom bracket let you get wild.

“This bike is a blast to ride, combining the attributes of a much longer travel all-mountain machine with the spry manners of a light trail bike. The overall sense of stability is aided by the commendable stiffness of the frame between the wheels, and the Giddy Up link rear suspension is highly capable across a broad range, inviting the inevitable “feels like it has more travel than it really does” cli-che. It is remarkably composed in wheel-eating terrain and would make a great go-to bike for backcountry rides in big mountains made entirely of head-sized rocks. The Scout, regardless of the landscape it is thrown into, is confidence inspiring and telepathi-cally easy to ride.” – Mike Ferrentino, Bike Magazine

“The concept of a shorter travel bike with long, low and slack geometry still raise questions, especially from riders who haven’t experienced how much fun a bike like this is capable of delivering. There are bikes with more travel that weigh a similar amount, so given the choice, why would anyone want less travel? What it comes down to is how the bike feels on the trail – the Scout possess a mix of playfulness and brawn that’s often lacking in longer travel bikes. This isn’t a spineless noodle of a trail bike designed for puttering around on flow trails, it’s a hot rod meant for going foot out, flat out whenever possible. But that doesn’t mean it takes a breakfast of Pixy Stix and Red Bull to take advantage of the Scout’s capabilities – even a less aggressive rider will be able to appreciate the ease at which the bike can cruise through technical terrain. Pumping through rollers, manualing out of corners, bunny-hopping over everything and anything that gets in the way – the Scout is one of those bikes that turns mountains into playgrounds, making the riding experience that much better.” – Mike Kazimer, Pinkbike.com Click here for the full review

“The naturally playful feel of the Scout becomes apparent within seconds of rolling into the first piece of singletrack. It’s easy to throw the Transition about, skipping between obstacles or launching entire sections with confidence – it really does feel like a much lighter bike.”- MBUK Magazine Click here for the full review
