The Good: The Voltage can cater to anyone and anything. With small and large options you can decide weather you want snappy race feel or a playful trick machine. The bike itself also has two phenomenal features in regard to how adjustable it is. The headtube is a 1.5 straight which allows for literally any fork configuration available to be an option given the correct headset. The voltage also comes with a variety of shock mounts allowing for a setup tunable for any build from a light slopestyle bike up to a heavy duty big mountain killer. with every given shock mount, the voltage also has an easily accessible short and long travel adjustment, allowing the rider to dial in the rear end with nothing more than an allen key. The specs on the bike are fantastic and leave very little to be desired. The frame is extremely light, and with the adjustments, can cater to a riders every need.
The Bad: The voltage, in my opinion, is the perfect park bike. The frame is light and responsive so the fact that scott would spec it with components less than the very very best is beyond me. I think that it would be genius to sell a frame option as well because all of the tunability means very little if the rider has to purchase it complete.
Overall, the Voltage FR has been my dream bike for a while, and after extensive abuse, progression and close calls, I can say the voltage is a bike for the rider who wants every last bit of fun they can possibly have on a mountain bike. If you want a slope and a dh bike but dont have the money, look no further. Want a perfect bike park bike? Or something to destroy the local freeride zones or carve snow in the off season? This is the bike. This bike kills it all. Masterpiece
