KTM Score Prestige Mountain Bike - Carbon Fibre

When you want to arrive in style on a bicycle, the KTM Score Prestige is a high-end mountain bike that lets you do just that. Manufactured by Austria's KTM Bike Industries and weighing only 9.5 kg (20.9 lbs), the Score Prestige is a race class carbon fibre mountain bike, designed for racers or for anyone who wants to experience the ultimate side of cycling. The Score Prestige is available in three frame sizes 43, 48 and 53 cm and sells for a list price of EUR 6499.00.

Components on the Score Prestige are all top of the line, with the first element of high technology being the carbon fibre monocoque frame, and the heart of the cycle. Next, the integrated rear shock is an air spring DT Swiss SSD Carbon with a 100 mm of travel and hydraulic damping. The shock can be locked-out if the rider desires, and it has a carbon fibre air chamber. The front forks are also made by DT Swiss (XRC-100 RL) and have 100mm of travel and can also be locked out. The rear derailleur, front derailleur, chain, crankset and pedals are all Shimano XTR, with the front and rear brakes and brake levers being the very capable Shimano XTR Disc hydraulic type.

For the front and rear hubs on the KTM Score Prestige, KTM chose Mavic Crossmax SLR Disc and Mavic Crossmax SLR also supplies the spokes and rims for the bike. The head set, stem and seatpost are Ritchey WCS carbon and the handlebars are 100% carbon fibre (Ritchey WCS CF Flat type). The tires are Schwalbe Furious Fred 2.0 with a dimension of 26" x 2.0. Finally for the seat, KTM chose the Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbon Flow. All of this combines to create a very capable mountain bike that allows the rider to experience the highest technology of performance cycling.
