Scott Plasma Premium Triathlon Bike 2018
The very ultimate in against-the-clock performance, the Scott Plasma Premium Triathlon Bike 2018 is the choice of none other than the Brownlee brothers - a fact that's testament to the immense technical advantages that this machine presents. Supremely aerodynamic, lightweight, and hugely strong, for a direct transfer of power, the Plasma Premium is simple without parallel in the world of triathlon.
Emphasis largely on the frame, this bike boasts a Scott's HMX carbon fibre construction for an unbeatable level of stiffness, rated at a full 20% better than Scott's HMF version. This stiffness translating into an immense level of integral strength and huge rigidity throughout, this bike doesn't absorb any energy in the form of flex, and instead allows you to input it directly into your pedals with a view to powering onwards.
This HMX fibre wound in accordance with Scott's revolutionary NET or Naked External Tube philosophy, the Plasma Premium makes every weight saving possible, shaving the pretty external layer of carbon fibre used for applying paint, and instead painting raw onto the frame. Measures like this seeing the entire machine come to just 8.65 kilos, this bike is sure to offer a responsive and intuitive feel across a diverse range of courses.
Aerodynamics critical in any machine designed to race against the clock, this bike offers the rider a number of targeted gains. Principally, the F01-X230 parametric airfoil design offers a vastly improved efficiency for the rider on the bike, taking into concern the relative nature of airflows hitting each and every structure of the bike. With clean air neatly parted and turbulent air reunited through innovative shaping, this bike provides an advanced approach to aerodynamics, working not just to help you force through the air, but to leave it behind you as smoothly as possible. Integrated front and rear brakes going even further to help this bike in progressing at pace, a fully shielded approach assures you that you can make real gains, and that every step possible is taken to assure you of better than ever performance on the course.
Equipped with the world's most trusted and experienced brand's highest line of componentry, this bike is fully equipped with Shimano's Dura-Ace 9150 Di2 electronic groupset. Providing absolutely seamless gear changes, actuated and programmed for the perfect level of movement every single time, slipping gears and failing to shift on the dot are set to become distant memories. Precise and meticulously engineered, this bike is kitted out for an unbelievable level of performance on the road.
Rolling on Zipp's 404 Firecrest for a front wheel and an 808 Firecrest Carbon clincher rear, you can be further assured of the very best equipment and the most fiercely aerodynamic performance possible. A Plasma HMX seatpost offering a rigid and unflexing mast on this bike, you can be sure to deliver all your power, with each and every pedal stroke you deliver. Fully integrated storage for energy and nutrition, this bike takes the needs of the hard core triathlete at the highest level seriously, and makes sure that they have everything they need to deliver on the day.
