The creations of Gustav Gullholm, also known as Dangerholm, always surprise and his new SCOTT Spark RC Hypersonic does it again. Based on a SCOTT Spark 2022, the frame has been customized to make it lighter and a very unconventional assembly has been chosen.

Dangerholm is as unconventional as his assemblies

The new SCOTT Spark RC Hypersonic by Dangerholm

As is usual in Dangerholm's assemblies, the frame of the new Spark 2022 has been sanded to shave off grams and has been customized according to the chrome tone of the rest of the components.

Each component has been carefully chosen and modified. The Garbaruk chainring and cranks are a prototype about to hit the market

The assembly, as always, is anything but conventional, but in addition, this time we find some prototype that will soon see the light in the market, like the Garbaruk crankset of only 384 g.

The devil is in the details: Customized Twinloc, fork with RockShox Charger RaceDay cartridge, Kogel titanium screws and Trickstuff Piccola Carbon brakes

For the fork, another model very little known to the general public has been chosen, an Intend Samurai XC with 120mm of travel. Its weight is only 1435.5g and integrates a standard 3-position RockShox Charger RaceDay cartridge compatible with the SCOTT Twinloc control, which has also been chromed for the occasion.

The rear derailleur has been improved with Hopp Carbon parts and customized Kogel Kolossos pulleys

In the rear we find a Rotor 12v 11-46T cassette driven by a mechanical Sram XX1 Eagle derailleur that has been improved with Hopp carbon parts and an oversized Kogel Kolossos cage that has been customized in aluminum color with Cerakote Champagne Pink pulleys.

The inverted fork gives this SCOTT Spark 2022 a completely unique aesthetic

The result is a dual suspension MTB with 120 mm travel and telescopic seat post of only 9.19 kg. He himself states that it is not the lightest mountain bike in its sector, but that was not his goal

"My goal in this project was: fast and agile on the climbs, fast and fun on the descents. In short, the best of both worlds".
