Scott releases new Ranson enduro bike

By Stephen Frothingham

GIVISIEZ, Switzerland (BRAIN) — Scott’s new Ransom model is carbon enduro bike that can be used with 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, with a suspension linkage chip that can be flipped for optimum performance with either wheel size.

The Ransom has 170 mm of travel front and rear, modern, progressive geometry and weighs 2,650 grams (5.84 pounds) for frame, shock and hardware

“Having ridden the Ransom extensively for some time now, I have to admit that I am surprised day after day by how capable it is. I raced downhill for nearly 15 years, and never thought that I would be able to reach similar speeds on a 170 mm Enduro bike. This thing is just pure speed, pure fun,” said Scott ambassador Andrew Neethling.

There are five models of Ransom available: a full carbon model in 27.5-inch and 29-inch options, a Hybrid version with a carbon front triangle and alloy rear end, and two full alloy models, the 920/720 and the 930.
