Scott Sports Timeline:
Scott is Born.
In 1958, the Company opened with the launch of it's first innovation: a tapered ski pole!
In 1986, Scott Bicycles introduced its first mountain bike.
1ST AERO BAR
In 1989, Scott bicycles introduced one of the most significant product innovations in the history of cycling - the aerodynamic handlebar. The handlebar was strategically utilized by American Greg Lemond in his 1989 Tour de France win.
In 1991, the Scott Bicycles entered into the production of mountain bike suspension with Unishock.
FIRST FULL-SUSPENSION MOUNTAIN BIKES
In 1992, Scott bicycles shipped its first full-suspension mountain bikes and later introduced cycling shoes and helmets.
G-ZERO: THE LIGHTEST FULL-SUSPENSION BIKE WORLDWIDE
SCOTT bicycles presented the lightest full-suspension mountain bike worldwide. The name "G-Zero" became a milestone in the development of the bike industry.
NEW RECORDS FOR LIGHTNESS
In 2001, SCOTT bicycles presented the road-bike Team Issue with the lightest frame worldwide (lighter than 1 kg), topped in 2003 by the CR1, the lightest frame on the market (895 gr).
THE ARRIVAL OF THE GENIUS - 'A REVOLUTIONARY MOUNTAIN BIKE'
In the same year, Scott bicycles presented the Genius, a new concept of a full-suspension bike with a shock-adjustable into three different modes (lock-out mode, all-travel mode, and traction mode.) Pretty soon magazines were filled with reports on the new Genius. The success of the Genius bike was highlighted by Thomas Frischknecht's victory in the marathon event at the World Championships.
LIGHTEST TRIATHLON BIKE
Utilizing its proprietary CR1 technology, the Scott bicycles developed a state-of-the-art triathlon frame. the PLASMA, which was 980 grams light. Add the integrated aero seat post at 300 grams and the result was the world’s lightest aero carbon frame with triathlon-specific geometry.
INTRODUCTION OF THE ADDICT FRAME
The new Addict is the lightest road frame available, just 790 grams with integrated seat post (165 grams). When combined with SCOTT bicycle’s new, slimmer carbon IMP™ fork that weighs just 330 grams, the new Addict bike weighs an amazing 5.9 kg.
LIGHTEST FRAME/SHOCK COMBINATION IN THE WORLD
By applying its revolutionary new Integrated Molding Process (IMP™) to its already proven CR1 technology and new Nude TC™ shock, SCOTT bicycles produced the lightest full suspension bike available.
SCOTT 50 YEARS ANNIVERSARY
Scott celebrates the golden anniversary, marking 50 years of commitment to progressive sport. Times have changed and Scott has developed into a worldwide powerhouse in Bike, Wintersport, Motosport and Running. But the vision has always remained the same from the humble beginnings 50 years ago in Ed Scott’s one man ski tuning business: INNOVATION - TECHNOLOGY – DESIGN.
GENIUS BIKE GENERATION 2 IS BORN
Same name – new frame, revised geometry and new Equalizer shock with Oil Transfer System.
NEW TWIN LOC SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY FOR BIKES
The all new Twin Loc lever allows the rider to keep both hands on the handlebars while selecting the desired travel settings or fully locking the suspension. Riders can switch between, full travel, Traction mode, and now complete lock out of both fork and Equalizer 2 TC shock on their Scott bicycles.
