Best Mountain Bike Under £500 Scott ASPECT 950 / 750 2017

Scott Aspect 950 Mountain Bike Review Black / AnthraciteLooking for a great value entry level hardtail mountain bike for under £500? Look no further than the Scott Aspect range. The Aspect 950 / 750 has been our best selling bike in 2015 and has been re-launched in 2016 with some exciting new improvements.


Scotts Hardtail Frame

Aimed at the avid cross country rider who likes to ride all day while being able to remain comfortable in style, the alloy 6061 frame has performance geometry which wont let you down. For Scott bikes 2016 the Aspect range features internal cable routing which is pleasing to the eye plus being more aerodynamic and stops cables getting mucky. Internal cable routing not normally seen on mountain bikes at this price point of under £500 a definite plus feature.


Up front is the suntour 100mm travel suspension fork complete with lockout. Always a great feature to have on any mountain bike for cross country riding. The gear system is shimano Altus with rapid fire shifters for slick gear changes under pressure. The chainset & Bottom bracket are also shimano, nice to see a full shimano groupset so no mix and match components which you often see on other brands.

The Brakes and levers are Tekro's hydraulic system 160mm rotors both end provide great braking not only in the dry but also in wet and muddy conditions giving an advantage over v brakes on lower priced bikes. Laced to 14g stainless spokes in black. Tyres are Kenda's Slant 6

The bike finishing kit is Scott own syncros brand in black and white it really sits well on all Scott bikes.

The Ride

Once in the saddle the Scott Aspect feels comfortable. Its not an out and out race machine but very capable of fast riding on and off road but doesn't break your back doing it.  The slightly shorter top tube and slacker head angle makes it a comfy ride but still able to go fast when wanted.
