The Scout is a bike that lets you view your favorite trails in a whole new way. Our Scout link creates a more capable bike and allows you to push your limits even farther when the days get longer or the trail gets rougher. Progression is increased to 30% from 24% to help keep you from bottoming out on the big hits without needing to use an excessive amount of volume reducers in the rear shock. This also means the bike is more friendly towards coil shocks and large volume air shocks. Increased mid stroke support lets you lean harder into berms and hit G-outs with more speed and control; while an increase in small bump compliance provides more traction through the roots and rocks. An additional 15mm of travel gives you a bit more margin for error when you let off the brakes and the trail gets rowdy.
