“Ultimate Fun machine”

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 Review:

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

“The Good, The Great, and the Beautiful”

The Good: Bike is hands down, one of the most fun bikes i've owned. I feel comfortable riding anything that any DH bike can, and to boot, I (kinda) pedals too. Comes, with top of the line components, (FOX 180 VAN FIT RC2, DHX RC2, SRAM X9). So as far as the components go, you can't find better on a complete bike.

The Bad: The stock Schwalbe tires suck major ass. Do your self a favour, and upgrade to a Maxxis Minion/Highroller combo, and save the heartache. In my opinion the bottom bracket is a bit low, but I rarely hit on bigger hits.

Overall Review:

This bike is the bee's knees. It's hard to find a better ride, that can do it all. Components are epic, tires not so much, but still an easy fix.

Hope this helps!
