Versatile Destroyer: 2019 Scott Ransom Reviewed

Statement made. After several years of refinement, tweaking, and tuning, we can confidently say Scott has created their best enduro bike yet. This thing hauls.

Rating: Vital Review

With 170mm of travel on tap and the ability to morph itself at the push of a lever, Scott's new Ransom is the best all-mountain/enduro bike the company has created. It's truly a blast to ride and handles so many scenarios well. Listen in as Vital MTB's Product Editor, Brandon Turman, rallies down Purgatory Resort outside of Durango, Colorado, telling you everything he thinks about the orange machine.
