The lightest 29ers ever built

By the end of the 2016 season, Gustav Gullholm thought it was time to start looking for two new cross country bikes. Scott had just released their new Scale and Spark models, and coming from an old Scott Scale SL, this was a natural choice. Having a look at the weight he did some rough calculations based on previous experience and the components available at the time, and it seemed possible to build a hardtail below 7kg and a full suspension bike close to 8kg. The project’s countless delays and months of waiting meant spare time – Spare time to think about ways to take these projects even further.
