Scott’s New Ski-Touring E-Bike
Challenged by exhausting mountain approaches in winter, integrating SCOTT’s own state-of-the-art E-Bike technology in wintersports is an obvious choice. When passes are still closed and spring snow is high in the mountains, it’s a sign of great ski touring conditions. However, approaches by foot can be long-winded and tiring. With a full suspension E-Bike these actually become fun adding an additional dimension to the journey. These were the objectives we had in mind when developing an advanced solution for mountain approaches with the SK-eRIDE concept.
The SCOTT AXIS EVO eRIDE is the perfect companion for this unique project. The bike supports ski-touring enthusiasts in gaining elevation and touching the snow without emptying their own tank. Once they get to the snow line, they’re still fresh to go even higher and to ultimately enjoy the way down creating own lines in untouched terrain. With versatility being key, the SCOTT Speedguide 95 Ski completes the setup, ensuring safe and confident skiing in the most technical of terrain. The SK-eRIDE makes the approach an enjoyable part of the ski journey.
Satisfaction lies in starting your skitour at your doorstep. Doing the approach of a skitour by bicycle rather than public transport or your own car extends the adventure, while lowering your carbon footprint. When I did my first one I was looking for a way to combine my two passions : Cycling and Skitouring. For this project we wanted to use a Scott E-bike as a base in order to make the bicycle part more fun, but also to enable you to go deeper into the mountains. Especially in springtime approaches by foot can be long-winded, with an e-Bike fullsuspension bike they actually become fun. The engine also easily equalizes the additional weight you carry with your ski equipment.

What will we do with this bike?
The idea is to open up the mountains for exploring more skiing lines. This project fits the needs of our athletes in approaching mountains in the future. It can happen every day by starting from their backyards or reaching closed passes in spring time- they get to the snow and go to places where cars cannot! Stay tuned and follow us so as to not miss the upcoming eRIDE skimo adventures! www.scott-sports.com
