SCOR Releases Limited Edition 4060 ST

PRESS RELEASE: SCOR

Limits are boring, especially when they get in the way of having fun. We’ve always tried to design our way around limits to create the kind of bikes we want to ride and make sure nothing gets in the way of the pure ride. The 4060 ST is proof of that. A mid-travel trail bike that’s just as happy whipping over doubles as it is whipping down singletrack, it’ll easily smash through limit points on its way to fun.

So, we wondered, what would happen if we made a 4060 ST that was truly without limits or compromise? What if we fitted the best components on the market and created the ideal trail bike?

Well, that’s exactly what we did and what we ended up with was this 4060 ST LTD in name and numbers but unlimited in potential. Our internal codename for this new bike? ‘The Dentist’.

Yeah, we thought we’d get in first with the dentist jokes – after all, there’s no escaping or excusing it, at €8,999 / $8,999 USD the 4060 ST LTD comes in at a premium price. But in return it offers a premium ride.
So, open up, say ahhhh and let’s drill into the specs.

There’s no point having the best components if the frame isn’t up to scratch, but the 4060 ST is all killer, no filler. With a full-carbon frame, 140mm of rear travel, 29inch wheels, an angle adjust headset and Stash Box it’s fully featured as standard.

In this LTD trim it’s finished in a very special 'Haze' colorway. An ever changing blend of greens, blues and sometimes even purple with multi-coloured flickers depending on the light and angle it’s viewed from, it’s a kaleidoscope of colors. Whatever color it happens to be at the time, the translucent finish lets you admire the luscious carbon beneath.

We spec RockShox’ Lyrik fork and Super Deluxe shock across the 4060 ST range and for the LTD we’ve plumped for the range-topping Flight Attendant version of both. Flight Attendant uses sensors on the bike to monitor rider and trail inputs and then adjusts your suspension on the fly, so you’re always in the optimum settings for the trail you’re riding right at that moment. It’s seamless, simple and oh so impressive. Unlike root canal surgery.

SRAM’s X01 Eagle groupset is 12 speeds of trail-taming perfection. The carbon crankset is stiff, light and incorporates a Flight Attendant sensor plus the cassette is a machined piece of art – with 52 teeth (20 more than the average human) on the largest sprocket you’ll be able to ride up just about anything.

When it comes to wheels no one makes finer hoops than our friends at DT Swiss. Their XM 1700 Spline wheelset matches the legendary 350 hubs to high-end aluminium rims that can take a pasting. Not only that, the 30mm internal width helps provide a great profile to the Maxxis Assegai and Dissector tires, giving them plenty of bite whatever the conditions.

Handling stopping duties are SRAM’s Code RSC four pot brakes. With full-fat 200mm rotors they offer gob-fulls of power without ever feeling numb.

photo

Straight from the box marked ‘properly posh bits’ is a glossy black Burgtec Enduro Mk3 stem which clamps down on a set of our own SCOR carbon bars. A Bikeyoke Divine dropper post and WTB Silverado with titanium rails are the kind of dentist chair you won’t mind sitting in.

All go, plenty of show – the 4060 ST LTD is bound to put a smile on your face.
Whether you’re a dentist or not.

 Seems to me like a bike spec'd with overstock parts: electronic suspension that didn't really catch on, newly outdated Code RSCs, and a non-Transmission high end SRAM drivetrain

 Exactly my thoughts. I also would've expected carbon or fancy alloy wheels in a 'no compromise' build, but they specced nice but fairly common XM1700.

 That electronic suspension SRAM developed still intrigues me. For those of us that don't live on or by mountains it seems like it could be nice.

 But it’s a limited edition, without limits, and no compromises…

 @Broso: They didn't compromise on their margins and weren't limited by what matters to consumers.

 honestly X01 isnt bad at all, but yeah electronic suspension.. no thanks.. and old Codes no thanks.

 @R-M-R: Spot on, BMC had to get the R&D money back for the side quest somehow. There isn’t a build spec in the line up that is appealing to the consumer.

 Great build for around 7/k. I don't see no dentist getting embarressed with this bike tough.

 @p1nkbike: "isn't bad at all" is a MUCH better description of this build than the marketing vomit in this press release.

 Had to get rid of the suspension one way or another.

 Is in it whole point of flight attendant was for long travel enduro bikes rather then short travel bikes?

imho bike looks like specced from spare bin parts of manufactures:
- look, none bought flight attendant lets put discounted product
- look, leftover code's, lets use them

 @p1nkbike: Bro, what's wrong with old codes???

The new ones are exactly the same.

 @Roost66: I was just thinking the same thing. I personally think the old even look better

 I am somewhat offended by XM1700 rims laced to 350 hubs on a supposed 'dentist' build.

 Exactly, pretty much can't ride a bike without 690 poe

 I'm thinking the car park and carrier van is a few meters behind the camera position to the right. lol

 These bikes piss me off so much because they look absolutely incredible, but the value is so bad that I can't justify buying one. Especially when there's a brand new YT Jeffsy Core 4 on the market with a comparable spec for a little over half the price.
  • 2 1
 the previous gen... if you show up on the "old one" at the trailhead you will be made fun of Big Grin The new gen is still a good price but getting into "too expensive for DTC company" territory as all the other DTC brands these days
  • 2 0
 @valrock: I don't know man, looks to me like the price for the new gen Jeffsy is actually stable. The new one goes for 4k for the Core3 build with full Sram GX and Fox Performance suspension. Then there is an allow version now, with 3k buying you the same spec for an alloy frame. I think that's pretty decent
  • 1 1
 @hardtailpunter: yeah, agree... decent. Not fantastic as it used to be Big Grin
  • 15 5
 Look @Scor, there is a reason why people don't want Flight Attendant.
And the same people will hopefully see soon, why they don't want SRAM Transmission either.
Simplicity is the beauty of mountainbiking.
To clutter a bike with over stocked parts doesn't cut it.
I really love your bikes ! Just sort out the "play-doh mud press" and the short comings of the shock mount, and you have another happy customer.

 Scor doesn't want it either, which is why they included it on a limited edition build with other parts they can't get rid of fast enough.

 It's one thing to shit on dentists LOL in the comments but a bike manufacturer trying to get in on it by 'codenaming' a build dentist and then telling everyone the codename just seems fucking shit.
  • 1 1
 I agree, but it’s really no different than brands releasing “downcountry” models. Further proof that marketing carries more weight than engineering
  • 6 0
 $9k, and no carbon wheels? Plus no Transmission? Bah... Does this model still have a debris collecting area behind the shock? I think I remember that from earlier reviews as one of the few cons. I like the color. Would have preferred Transmission over Flight Attendant, and carbon wheels of course.
  • 4 0
 No AXS Drivetrain / Transmission or Dropper, and DT Swiss 350's Maybe should come out with an additional model aimed a lawyers... spec with the above mentioned parts and price it in-line with an S-Works at $11,999.99
  • 5 2
 Who in their right mind would buy this?! Every bike is on sale right now… they should be paying people to take the Flight attendant BS off their hands. Just for reference, you can get a Revel Rail with carbon wheels, I9 hubs, super deluxe, codes and a bike yoke divine for around $5500!

 That spacer stack is the only thing to send you to the dentist. No transmission (not even XX1 eagle), no axs dropper, and alloy wheels. Seems like a McDonalds fry cook build to me.

 Your first sentence had me in stitches. I read a lot of PB comments, but that is the first one in a while to really make me laugh. Thank you!

 IMO the Scor 4060 st/lt is a badass, - good times
if the value part came together they would sell plenty
  • 2 1
 You'd better find a stupid dentist to spend that money on that specs. Actually you can find better sorted bike for way less money. Not to mention the used market... Or huge discounts on parts on about any online shop.

 This seems like a good bike with a reasonable price, compared to other boutique bike brands at least.

However, I can already hear the groans from the Pinkbike reviewers about the dropper post not being 200mm or bigger…
  • 3 2
 It’s just a stupid way to spend money
I’d rather have proper suspensions from a reputable tuner than rock shock stock stuff with fancy leds and batteries on top
  • 3 0
 Aluminum wheels on a $9k bike? pshh no dentist would go for that
  • 3 0
 Judging by the spacers, stack height is pretty limited too.
  • 3 1
 Could anyone scor anything better than this?! I'll see myself outch.
  • 3 1
 It's known as "the crown" of their work to date
  • 4 6
 Whole lotta meh. A no-holds-barred build should have Cane Creek cranks, carbon wheels (with Berd spokes), Ohlins suspension, maybe a Kogel cage already installed. It shouldn’t work better than this build, but it should be pointlessly premium down to the custom to bolts and CeramicSpeed chain.

 I feel called out for you listing everything I would put on my dream bike

 @123Rides: That's the point of a dream build. It's not about function-it's about excess. Keep dreaming....of a bike nicer than this one.

 If they wanted to name this "the dentist", it would have to be painted turquoise to be more in line with the competition.
