  • The Spark 730 27.5 is quicker and lighter than 29ers, but offers the same benefits of large-diameter wheels—more speed and better traction
  • Compared to 26 in. wheels, larger-diameter wheels roll over obstacles more easily so you won't stall going uphill over roots and loose soil
  • 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 by 0.5° to meet your geometry preferences
  • TwinLoc system provides remote, bar-top control of suspension travel and lockout, letting you customize performance on the fly
  • 3 TwinLoc settings supply full travel front and rear, Traction mode (full travel on fork with limited rear suspension), and lockout for both front and rear
  • Fox 32 Float Evolution CTD Air suspension fork has 120mm of air-sprung travel; Fox Float CTD rear shock has a progressive damping curve and excellent sensitivity
  • Tapered head tube and 15mm front quick-release axle stiffen up the front end for enhanced strength and handling precision
  • 3x10 Shimano drivetrain features a Shimano XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur along with SLX shifters and front derailleur for quick, efficient and precise performance
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes use a 180mm rotor up front and a 160mm rotor in back to facilitate responsive, progressive braking
  • Syncros XC37 wheels are outfitted with excellent all-arounder Schwalbe Rocket Ron tires to ensure great traction and fast-rolling performance on the trail
  • Specs on the Scott Spark 740 27.5 full-suspension mountain bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
