Occupying a mid-range position somewhere between the giddy heights of the ultra-light, tricked-out Spark Limited and the entry-level Spark 60, the Spark 35 is what Scott would probably like to think of as an everyman’s racer.
Affordable enough for most keen riders but with most of the performance credentials of the range-toppers, it’s the kind of bike that you’ll ﬁnd lining up at the start line of cross-country races every weekend.
And it's a great pocket rocket – extremely light, pleasingly nimble and very fast, with enough travel to tame most trails. Its willingness to be ridden ‘pedal to the metal’ in situations where a race bike has no place being pushed so hard transforms this race bike into a genuinely light and versatile all-rounder.
Ride & handling: Light, stiff, fast and agile; way more versatile than its race tag suggests
Anyone expecting an old-school cross-country race experience, sacriﬁcing comfort for the sake of speed, is in for a rude shock – or perhaps that should read ‘pleasant surprise’ – with the Spark 35. The Scott’s ride position combines the efﬁciently stretched ethos of race-bred geometry with comfortably relaxed angles.
The stem is short enough to make last-second disaster-averting front end ﬂicks a mere dropped shoulder away, and the bar is wide enough to wrestle through protracted sections of vision-blurring rocks or roots. The result is spot-on weight distribution and enough comfort to make day-long epics a pleasure rather than a chore.
By squeezing an extra 10mm of rear wheel travel out of their cross-country race full-susser – and speccing a 120mm-travel fork up front – you might think that Scott’s product designers have brazenly parked their tanks on the lawn of the all-mountain competition.
But it isn’t that simple. The light build, skinny stays, small pivots and standard quick-release fork up front all contribute just enough twist and shimmy through rough trail sections to remind the rider that this is a precision instrument, not a wrecking ball.
On the other hand, the powerful riding position, wide bars and acres of clearance beneath the pedals allow you to keep the power down through the kind of rock gardens that’ll have most shorter travel riders backing off. That’s an addictive advantage that puts the Scott a notch above many race-bred rigs, and demonstrates that the extra travel isn’t just a gimmick.
