The new Scott E-Spark 720 Plus eBike is built entirely for trail riding, with a 130mm travel chassis, trail components and lightweight build. Focused on your everyday trail biker who want's to take on a full day's ride - Longer, Harder & Faster for 2017!
When good design pays off: stylishly integrated, SCOTT’s design is both slim and manages to include a bottle cage mount... - E-Mountain Bike Magazine
Scott have developed a whole new breed of electric mountain bike, for 2017 fully integrating the new eMTB specific Shimano Steps system into one truly capable eBike.
When combined with Scott's exclusive TwinLoc system this means for one very well equipped trail bike!
The new Scott Spark's offer a tighter trail geometry and lower centre of gravity due to the new Shimano battery integration.
Scott have fitted a Custom X-Fusion Nude rear shock to the E-Spark 720 which offers 3 modes of lockout including Scott's special 'traction control' setting perfect for any eBike.
The X-Fusion shock also has full air adjust-ability and rebound damping controls. Inverted in the frame for optimum traction and minimal 'Pedal Bobbing'.
Interestingly, Scott eBikes also allow the user 2 stages for the shock to operate. The quick chip on the rear linkage can be flipped to the riders liking, offering a low & high BB setting depending on the terrain - offering full control on the 2017 Scott E-Spark electric bike.
Now with the new Shimano SLX 10 speed drive train, the 2017 SLX mech is crisper, easier to shift & lighter than ever before.
The Shimano Deore disc brakes offer similar characteristics to the SLX style brakes with servo action levers and larger calipers to offer good levels of braking and disperse heat efficiently.
PLUS. What's this all about? The new revelation hitting the cycling industry by storm is the 27.5+ tyres. These bridge the gap between regular MTB's and Fat eBikes to offer a wider 2.8" tyre for ultimate traction and grip, without compromising on rolling resistance, the E-Spark is equipped and ready to go!
For 2017 the wheels are built using Shimano front & rear hubs. These are laced onto strong yet lightweight Syncros X35 35mm wide 27.5+ alloy disc specific trail rims.
The E-Spark 720 Plus 2017 eBike is offered up with a combination of Maxxis Minion tyre up front & Rekon tyre at the rear. The wider 2.8" offering decent grip levels for cornering on the front wheel, while maintaining a fast rolling rear to keep you tight through the trails.
Don't forget these are extra wide and suck up a lot more of the bumps. Also due to the wider tyre and dual compound construction, these eBike tyres offer superior levels of grip over standard width tyres without compromising rolling resistance.
Up front we see the RockShox Sektor RL forks with 130mm of travel for all round trail use, these are of course fully air adjustable with rebound and damping controls also.
This adjustment is normally adjusted down on the forks / shock itself, but Scott have an exclusive remote TwinLoc lever design for the E-Spark 2017, mounted up on the handlebars.
Having control on the bars the rider can fully open or close both front and rear shocks without removing hands from the eBike bars. A special system indeed for maximum control.
The new Scott E-Spark 720 is the entry level model within the Shimano Steps range of eBikes. It's fairly well spec'd considering the price and offers a great way into electric mountain biking, particularly for Shimano fans. Want more? Check out the E-Spark 710 2017.
