2019 Scott Ransom All Mountain Bike Range

Built for Speed

Speed is at the core of the Ransom design. This bike is not only fast, but also performs well at speed? In addition to carbon construction, more features make sure that you can forget about the bike as you fly down the mountain.

  • Protection – DT protector under the bottom bracket and along the downtube. Newly developed, noise-silencing Chainstay/seatstay protector
  • Angle & Position – Long, slack and stable at speed for downhill. No compromise on seat angle or position for climbing
  • Cable Routing – with SCOTT proprietary Downtube protector
  • Tyre Clearance – run 27.5 or 29 on the Ransom, with a simple flip chip to change wheel size
  • Hixon IC 1.0 Rise lightweight integrated bar and stem combo
  • Tofino saddle

Loaded with Tech Features

Fox Nude TR Evol

SCOTT Ransom models feature the all new Fox Nude TR Evol. This allows you to select what sort of progression you would like in descend mode: more linear, or more progressive. By flipping the Ramp Adjust Lever, you can decide how your shock behaves while descending.

A more progressive shock will offer more support towards the end of travel, and is harder to bottom out. These settings are really linked to riding speed. When it is wet, technical, or when impacts are small and riding tends to be slower, you might favour the more linear setting. When the conditions are dry and fast, or when bigger impacts are in play, the progressive mode is ideal.

TwinLoc Suspension System

The TwinLoc Suspension System features across our XC and Trail bikes, but is just as important on a long travel All Mountain/Enduro bike. For big days out in the mountains, you can never be quite sure what you’ll encounter. A 170mm MTB is great for descending, but it needs to be a good climber if you’re going to enjoy the full day!

The Ransom can climb perfectly well in Descend mode, but with the flick of the thumb, it performs with the efficiency of a lightweight XC bike – this is invaluable for saving energy throughout the day. Switching into Traction Control mode also changes the dynamic geometry of the bike, raising the BB and putting you into a more comfortable climbing position. Traction control makes the bike more agile and nimble. This is perfect for quick accelerations or sudden changes in the trail that force you to put the hammer down, whether mid all-day epic, or mid race. Should you encounter and steep gravel climbs, or smooth riding between trailheads, throw it into our Lockout mode to make sure you’re getting the most out of each pedal stroke.
