TUNED is the top-level line of mountain bikes and apparel from Scott. Head lining the line-up is the 2021 Scott Gambler TUNED that Marine Cabirou just rode to her first Overall World Cup title win in Lousa, Portugal. All bikes across the Scott mountain category get a TUNED model, and there’s a bunch of slick looking functional kit to go with them. Before we dive in, here’s a quick reminder that Marine Cabirou is faster than you are.
2021 Scott Gambler 900 TUNED
The World Cup Title winning 2021 Scott Gambler 900 TUNED is a 200mm travel downhill mountain bike with a 203mm fork.
$8,499.99 will get you this model, fitted up with a FOX 40 Factory Float fork and FOX DH X2 Factory shock.
It also gets a SRAM XO1 DH 7 Speed drivetrain, Shimano XTR 4-Piston brakes and Syncros Revelstoke DH 1.5 TR Wheelset mounted with Maxxis Assegai 2.5″ DH Tires.
The 2021 Scott Ransom enduro bike also gets the top-level TUNED treatment, and it seems to go pretty well…
2021 Scott TUNED Men’s MTB Apparel Collection
To accompany the 2021 TUNED bikes is a collection of mountain bike clothing, eyewear, helmets and footwear for a full factory look.
First up is the Scott TUNED Fury MTB Goggle. Sadly, you can’t get it in the colorway worn by Marine Cabirou and the rest of the Scott Factory DH Team – it’s only available in this “black/smurple blue/purple chrome” colorway. It isn’t tear-off compatible but it does get a silicone strap, 3-layer face foam and an extra lens for £79.99.
Next up are the 2021 Scott TUNED Men’s Jerseys, available in both long and short sleeve versions. These MTB tops are both made from Polartec Delta fabric with DRYOxcell quick dry-knit fabric 4-way stretch fabric. Scott say it wicks well and is highly breathable. Plus, they feature an integrated lens wipe.
On the bottom half, Scott are offering MTB Trail TUNED Pants and Shorts for £119.99 and £139.99, respectively. The Pants are composed of durable Cordura fabric and feature two zipped side pockets, a tight bottom leg and some breathable panels. It’s a full stretch fabric so riders should have no problem wearing these over a set of proper knee pads.
The Trail TUNED Shorts are also made from Cordura and feature two zippered pockets. They come with removable padded liner shorts.
For your paws, pick up the Scott TUNED Traction MTB Gloves as worn by your 2020 World Cup Overall Winner, Marine Cabirou, for £34.99. Available in sizes XS-XXL, the Traction Gloves are assembled such that the seams around the finger area sit at the back of your hand, so won’t interfere with the gripping surface.

Where’s the Women’s MTB Kit?
Scott don’t offer the TUNED Apparel collection for women. They have an entirely different line up for women – the Scott Contessa signature collection. Check it out here.
