The SCOTT Aspect 970 is a hardtail mountain bike that is designed to be light, efficient and reasonably priced. Featuring disc brakes and Syncros components, this is the perfect bike for the novice or budget conscious mountain biker.
Compared with the Scale bikes from SCOTT, the Aspect range features different geometry - the reach is a little shorter when comparing sizes for size and the head tube length is slightly longer - placing the handlebars naturally slightly higher than on a Scale. Aspect geometry will have the rider sitting slightly more upright and comfortable, whereas the Scale is more aggressive or 'racy'.
Please call for availability of other sizes.
- Suntour XCT fork with 100mm travel
- 21 speed Shimano drivetrain components
- Tektro disc brakes
- 29 inch wheels for improved momentum, rollover and traction
- Internal cable routing

Ready to ride
Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. More details can be found here.
Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
This process has a lead time of around 2-3 working days
Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.
Making sure you are home
Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.
