When we first saw the SCOR 4060 Z LT eBike at Sea Otter Classic last October and were instantly impressed. In fact, it was the first time we’d seen any SCOR mountain bike. The entire SCOR MTB lineup was beautiful, and they looked like very fun bikes to ride. We poked around the booth and were lucky enough to get connected with their marketing department who agreed to send us a bike for our 2022 eMTB Shootout. We selected their longer travel, enduro eBike, which sports 160mm of rear wheel travel with 170mm of travel up front and a well-balanced geometry and spec recipe and some pretty respectable pricing compared to other offerings in the current eMTB market.
For those also unfamiliar, the SCOR Mountain Bike brand was a bit of a passion-fueled side project of BMC Bicycles, that has given birth to one of the most fun bikes in this year’s eBike Shootout. BMC Bicycles is an elite-level bike brand known for their incredibly light, and beautiful cross-country and road bikes. As it worked out, some of BMC’s more shreddy R&D department employees grew restless knowing that the brand they worked for didn’t have bikes that catered to their style of riding. They set out to create a line of bikes under a new flag, designed to play in the steep, tight and technical trails of the local Jura Mountains in Switzerland. When a new bike brand launches with one good looking bike it’s pretty exciting for us bike nerds, however when a new company launches with trail, enduro, and two eBike options, then we get really excited. So, let’s see how that excitement played out while doing this scor 4060 z lt xt review during our 2022 eMTB Shootout.
