The new season of 2022 Scott Tuned bikes & gear grows bigger than ever, expanding to include two new disciplines this coming year. The annual Tuned collection had focused more on mid-longer travel mountain bikes in years past, but with new Spark XC & Addict Gravel bikes debuted this year the off-road collection expands to include 6 bikes and all the gear you’ll need for riding anything from gravel to downhill…

Scott Tuned highlights the top-tier of the Swiss brand’s off-road bikes, built up with uncompromising component spec, and then accessorized with matching riding gear from head-to-toe.

For 2022, Tuned simplifies your color coordination by simply eliminating almost any color (like last year’s blues). The entire 2022 line-up is matte black & semi-gloss white, with just a few hints of iridescent logos.

2022 Tuned bikes… gravel to DH

Six bikes make up 2022 Scott Tuned – the gravel Addict Gravel, XC Spark, all-mountain any-trail Genius, enduro Ransom Tuned, DH Gambler Tuned, and Patron eRide e-bike.

The 9000€ Addict Gravel Tuned is the latest bike addition, with the new gravel bike debuting back in midsummer. Spec’d with a SRAM Red AXS 2×12 drivetrain and 45mm Schwalbe G-One Race tires on aero carbon DT Swiss GRC 1100 wheels, it’s also the biggest deviation from the previously MTB-only tuned family.

The other all-new bike this past summer is the 9500€ Spark 900 Tuned, which earned an honorable mention in our Editor’s Choice this year with its Bold-inspired hidden rear shock. Built up with slightly longer 130mm Fox 34 forks (vs. the 120mm travel SID on its World Cup XC-racing brethren) the Spark 900 Tuned is surprisingly both trail-capable AND cross-country race-ready, with a nice mix of SRAM X01 AXS Eagle 12sp drivetrain, Shimano XTR brakes, and carbon Syncros Silverton wheels & Fraser iC SL DC 1-piece cockpit. There’s no cleaner-looking stealth mountain bike than this one.

Step up to 150mm of travel and the 8500€ Genius 900 Tuned is ready for any trail. The Genius Tuned has probably been around the longest of this collection, but it stays fresh with Fox Factory suspension & dropper, SRAM X01 AXS Eagle, XTR 4-piston brakes, carbon Syncros Revelstoke wheels & a 1-piece carbon Hixon iC SL cockpit.

At 9500€, the Ransom 900 Tuned has enduro covered with 170mm of 29er travel. It gets built with almost the same spec as the Genius, just scaled up to a stiffer, longer Fox 38 fork & beefier tires for more technical riding. Itis more expensive, but at less than 1kg heavier than the big trail bike, it’s probably quite versatile for such a big bike.

Last up in the pedal-ly mountain bikes is the 9600€ full-on downhill race-ready Gambler 900 Tuned. Debuted a couple of years back now, the World Cup DH bike is one of the lightest at 15kg, most adjustable race bikes out there – making suspension progression, geometry & wheelsizes all easy to adapt on race day. Spec’d with Fox Factory suspension, SRAM X01 DH 7sp, XT 4-piston brakes, a Hixon iC DH bolt-on cockpit, and alloy RaceFace Atlas wheels wrapped in 2.5″ Assegai tires… this bike is DH race-ready out of the box.

2022 Scott Patron eRide 900 Tuned

You can’t quite leave the 9000€ Patron eRide 900 Tuned eMTB out of the mix, as it’s oddly “not that expensive” compared to the extremes of some e-bikes. (The Patron eRide 900 Ultimate spec sells for 12,000€!) The long-travel trail Patron eRide is actually the newest platform here, debuting back in September with 160mm front & rear but sliding in between the e-Genius & e-Ransom with extended battery range. With 750Wh of juice hidden inside, the Bosch CX powered eMTB combines Fox Factory suspension with a hidden shock, plus GX Eagle mechanical drivetrain & XT 4-piston to carry you further.

Matching Tuned kit

If you spend 8500-9600€ on a fancy new Tuned bike, you might as well get the matching Tuned kit & gear too, right? For next season there are four black & white Scott Tuned helmets from gravel to all-mountain half shells to DH, 80€ goggles or 90€ sunglasses, gravel or trail gloves, light 100€ or medium-protection 130€ knee pads, 180€ clipless gravel or 100€ flat all-mountain shoes, and a 200€ protector hydration backpack or 50€ hip pack.

Kit-wise there are three options. Short black 100€ outer shorts and fitted dark gray 70€ short-sleeve jersey for gravel. Or more loose-fitting all-black 150€ shorts, 130€ pants, and both 80€ short & 90€ long-sleeve jerseys for any type of mountain biking. Or pick up a 40€ mesh-back Tuned Cap for styling off-the-bike.

Exactly, my local Scott retailer says best case is late 2022 for getting one of these. Apparently Europe is getting first dibs on all Scott MTB.

@Brian Since Europe is their biggest market it is quite normal. Like Europe ain’t the priority of the likes of Trek or Spesh. Though you’re not missing anything with Scott. They are by far the worst brand I deal with when it comes to warranty.
Only Scott will say no for almost no reason. They are turning down warranty claims for cheap stuff such as shock axles and bolts. Even though they have everything in stock, even though the parts are cheap AF they say no. Their excuse is that such parts wear down after a year or two. What a joke since last time they say no was to their top of the line e-Genius, the bike was barely used for a year and a half because of lockdowns. Give them the finger and buy something else !
