The Scout has the character of a slopestyle bike blended with the comfort to pedal big mileage in any terrain. Taking mid travel to all new places, the Scout is equally at home slashing turns deep on backcountry trails or cranking out laps on the local trails. The playful nature of the Scout begs the rider to play around with new lines on the trail. 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.

"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."

"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."
