The SCOTT E-Spark 710 applies proven electric assist technology to a capable off-road package. Powered by the Shimano STEPS drive system, and in unison with our patented TwinLoc technology, the E-Spark 710 brings another element to the mountains. Trails will never look the same.
Our patented Twin Loc technology now offers simultaneous control of rear shock travel and fork lockout. The open position allows full travel, front and rear. One click switches the rear shock to Traction mode, while the fork remains fully active. Click again and rear shock and fork lock at the same time. No other bike in the world offers this user-friendly system. Found on the Spark & Genius and Genius LT models. Only available for Nude2 shocks on 2013 or previous year models.
The new colour display comes in a compact size and is nicely integrated on the handlebar. It provides all the relevant data required during the ride. While the display features full connectivity with Shimano Di2 components it also allows for individual settings for the available information.The switch has been redesigned specifically for mountain bikes. Thanks to the ergonomic design improvements, the switch is now better integrated and offers a similar feel to a gear shifter.
The E-8000 series drive unit has been redesigned to allow for improved integration into current Mountainbike frames. The compact design of the drive unit allows for shorter chain stays and more tire clearance. These features, together with the light weight of the engine pack (below 3.2kg)and a standard Q-factor (175mm), improve the handling and riding feel substantially. Along with a new drive unit, Shimano has developed a new stiff and lightweight BB axle with Hollowtech-II technology designed to accommodate E-MTB specific crank-sets. The drive unit achieves a maximum power output of 70Nm and 250W.
The E-8000 series was designed with all day mountain bike performance riding in mind. The capacity of the Ion-Lithium battery has been increased to 500WH with improvements in the durability of more than 1000 cycles. The E-8000 series removable battery can now be recharged in only 5 hours. The new design features a lower profile specifically for mountain bikes which improves both impact and vibration resistance.
Scott has adopted the new Metric shock sizing standards with a Trunnion mount. Since the shock body now extends between the two lower mounting bolts, our suspension partners have more design space. This means the shock has more stroke for the same eye to eye length. Stroke on the 165mm eye to eye shock has increased from 38mm to 40/45mm.The Trunnion standard also offers structural gains. The shorter shock enables us to build a very compact frame and shock package, which integrates tightly to the seat tube.
