Video: Inside Look at How Scott Bicycle’s Carbon Fiber Frames are Made
Scott Sports recently posted this inside look at their carbon fiber bicycle production facility. While every brand has their secrets, the process is generally pretty similar. What’s rare is for a company to show so much of it. Every frame is handmade, and the amount of time spent on each varies by model. How long? Scott USA’s Adrian Montgomery said:
“Each frame is different. For instance a Plasma3 takes 80 hours, a Scale takes 22 hours, a FOIL takes 40 hours. Full suspension frames come in parts but generally take about 30 hours for a Spark or Genius.”
