This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The Scott Contessa Spark full-suspension mountain bike features bar-top control of the 120mm of suspension for ultimate convenience while ripping singletrack.

  • Hydroformed and butted 6061 aluminum frame is lightweight and sturdy; geometry has been fine-tuned to maximize suspension performance
  • Oversize bearings help keep suspension stiff and responsive; rear shock linkage chip lets you adjust head tube angle to meet your preferences
  • TwinLoc system provides remote, bar-top control of suspension travel and lockout, letting you customize performance on the fly; choose between full travel or full lockout
  • RockShox Recon Gold RL Solo Air suspension fork boasts 120mm of air-sprung travel with both rebound adjustment and lockout; alloy steerer provides weight savings
  • DT Swiss M210 rear shock with rebound adjustment and lockout offers platform damping for improved efficiency and bump control
  • All-Shimano drivetrain features SLX derailleurs and Deore shifters, which provide fast, responsive shifts across the 27 gear combinations
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes ensure simple, effective finessing of your speed as well as outright stopping power thanks to a 180mm rotor up front and a 160mm rotor in back
  • Specs on the Scott Contessa Spark full-suspension mountain bike are subject to change

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
