The Bettor 10 comes shod with the Shimano Zee groupset, which performed so well it left us examining the advantages of the more pricey Saint group. The Scott additionally featured properly large Funn bars, as well as testers discovered the Fox 40 to be an ideal suitable for the bike.
Group Beast Energy-Specialized debuted this concept in 2010, as well as numerous racers have actually since attempted replicating it with their very own less-ingenious customizations.

Our testers had pretty strong opinions when it came to fit and some handling aspects. Cyclists reported that it felt cramped in the front, resulting in a strange placement that left you either standing high with short triangulation or reduced with your backside over the rear and also elbows down. It felt a little high and steep, not necessarily as a result of the angles, yet due to a relatively lengthy back end and short front end.
