Scott USA announced that its Swisspower team will ride DT Swiss suspension front and rear this season. Scott and DT, both Swiss companies, will extend their developmental partnership to include team sponsorship.
DT Swiss entered into a two-year agreement with the team, and will use input from the riders to further develop the Nude rear shock for Scott, as well as its new front suspension offerings. Swisspower team riders Thomas Frischknecht, Nino Schurter, and Florian Vogel will compete on the brand new Scott Spark, which is already the lightest XC race bike available.
"We're really excited about the partnership," said Adrian Montgomery of Scott USA. "The Nude project allowed us to share the traction control function with a suspension company. Having three travel modes available at your fingertips is a distinguishing characteristic of Scott bikes."
