Scott Lumen E-Ride

Light and Fun - An E-MTB at 15.5 kg

Take the best Cross-Country/Trail platform to date, the Spark 900, top it off with 130mm of travel, add a completely silent and powerful electric assistance, yet keep its legendary lightweight DNA, and you are ready to ride any trail.

The Batteries:

Scott Lumen Batteries

2 Batteries, 1 Internal, 1 External

The Lumen features a 360Wh internal battery which can be further complemented by a 160Wh external range extender. This should provide you an average range of about 60km on a single charge. Thanks to TQ’s electronic expertise, the HPR50 battery, when combined with the range extender, guarantees maximum performance right through until empty.

The Water Bottles:

Scott Lumen Water Bottle Mounts

2 Water Bottle Mounts

Unlike most full suspension E-Bikes, on the Lumen there is no need to choose between the range extender or a water bottle - between longer rides and staying hydrated. Thanks to the integrated shock there is space for both an external battery and water. An optional sliding mount system also allows an easy switch between the rear water bottle and the range extender, allowing both to be easily transported when out on longer rides.

The Motor:

Compact Powerful Assistance

TQ is a German company founded in 1994 who specialize in electric components across a range of industries. The HPR50 delivers an unprecedented weight/power ratio of 1.8 kg for 50Nm. With a diameter of 8 cm, TQ has innovated by using a harmonic gear system. This results in a lighter bike, better integration, while reducing backlash for a more natural pedalling sensation. This technology also allows for the reduction in system noise for a truly natural experience. After all, you are in the outdoors to, well, enjoy the outdoors.

Scott Lumen Motor


The TQ motor allows us to keep a standard Q-factor with a 55mm chain line – exactly the same as the Scott Spark. This allows us to do a few interesting things. Firstly, we can guarantee great tire clearance while not sacrificing stiffness – which is key when it comes to power transfer. Secondly, it gives you the exact same rider stance and pedal width as on a regular bike.

The Display:

Scott Lumen Handlebar Remote

Handlebar Remote

The system can be controlled via a minimalistic handlebar remote paired to the integrated top tube display. The modes are easy to switch through, and, thanks to the ergonomic placement on the handlebar, can be easily controlled whilst riding, as well as when using Walk Mode.

Bike display

Always Connected

To maintain a clean cockpit, the TQ system puts the focus on a minimalistic display located in the top tube paired to a discrete shifter on the handlebar. The LED display provides all the essential info, such as the battery level %, remaining KM range and even Watts, thanks to an integrated power meter. Want more? Link up your phone and dive deep using the TQ E-Bike app. Utilizing the built in ANT+, the system easily connects with a bike computer such as a Garmin, Hammerhead or Wahoo unit.

Track Your Rides

The TQ app offers real benefit and is easy to use. It’s easy to connect, customize and control your TQ-powered e-bike with the TQ E-Bike app. The bike comes with a suggested SCOTT motor tune, with the app you can further tune your drive unit to either save battery life or maximise the power output. You can also customize the display, altering the order and number of screens available, turn on and off control sounds etc.

The Integrated Shock:

Scott Lumen Suspension

Better Protection, Stiffer Construction

The Lumen uses the same suspension layout as featured in the SCOTT Spark, now a double World Championship winning bike. Our integrated suspension technology also helps us to engineer frames with a lower shock placement which lowers centre of gravity Why integrated you ask? Well for one, we think it looks fantastic. But also keeps the shock fully protected from any foreign elements. Rainy wintry ride? No problem, your shock will continue to perform at its best regardless.

Scott Lumen  Shock

Easy Access

Accessing the shock via the bottom bracket area is facilitated through a hatch. This makes it easy to adjust rebound, compression, shock pressure, and for installing or replacing the cable for our TwinLoc Suspension System.

Scott Lumen Twinloc Suspension System

Twinloc Suspension System

The Lumen features our Twinloc Suspension System. With the remote, the user has the ability to choose from three ride modes; descend, traction control and lockout, effectively changing the bikes geometry, suspension damping and spring curve simultaneously. Our lever also features the dropper post actuation below the bar. This ergonomic solution puts all of the bike’s controls in one place making them easily accessible on the fly.


Scott Lumen Frame Design

Frame Design

Taking inspiration from the Spark, the objective was a riding position that feels just like a regular bike. We wanted the ability to descend like a trail bike without sacrificing anything when you need to put the hammer down, and a trail bike that can fly up the hill to do it all again on the next descent. If you prefer a more aggressive ride, the head angle of the Lumen can be easily adjusted through one of 3 positions. The geometry chart is based around the head angle of 65.5 degrees. Our adjustable headset cups allow for a steeper or slacker angle by .6 degrees in either direction.

Integrated Cables:

The Handlebar

The Lumen 900 SL and 900 models feature the Fraser IC DC combo from Syncros. The designers worked on the shape to allow the cables to flow under the bar and around the sides of the stem before disappearing into the headset with integrated plastic parts to keep it clean and efficient. This avoids bends or kinks in the cables and provides a minimalist front end.

The Ride:

UAE Tour Women Stage 1

Best of Both Worlds

The SCOTT Lumen takes the world’s fastest XC/Trail frame platform and adds completely silent and powerful electric assistance all while maintaining SCOTT’s legendary lightweight DNA.

The ride feel is like a regular bike: no need to think about a longer braking distance, pedal drag or weight, as it’s even possible to ride the bike with the assistance switched off. This is an E-Bike for a mountain biker, with all the benefits of a regular bike, now with added assistance to get you up those hills faster to enjoy riding further and for even longer.
