The SCOTT Gambler 730 is a no-compromises DH weapon. This is the rig that SCOTT-Velosolutions riders Brendan Fairclough and Gaetan Vige rely on daily. With 27.5-inch wheels, a custom race tuned Kashima Coated FOX Suspension and World Cup podium-proven components, this bike was built for speed. Equipped with a low, slack geometry and a tweaked leverage ratio, the Gambler 730 will be able to handle everything in front of you. Following SCOTT's belief that for every track there is a correct tool, this bike was designed to be compatible with 26-inch wheels as well.
The frame uses super strong 6061 hydroformed, custom-butted aluminum and is one of the most adjustable downhill frames on the market. The headset is tuneable in 1- or 2-deg increments, with a range from 61- to 65-deg, so the ideal setup can be found for any racer on any track. The bottom bracket height is adjustable by 10mm to accommodate for rider preference as well as wheel size. There are two chainstay length settings—the longer, 440mm setup is ideal for high-speed tracks or for riders who like a planted rear end, while the shorter, 425mm setup gives the bike a lively feel and works better on tighter tracks. A keyed interface of the rear axle and dropouts prevents the rear ends of the bike coming loose after long days at the bike park and eliminates the need for pinch bolts on the rear axle. Additionally, the stiffer feeling rear end provides better and more consistent cornering traction over traditional axle designs.
The Gambler 730 features an X-Fusion suspension package that offers a whole new level of gravity-induced fun. The RV1 fork provides 200mm of travel with Hi-Lo Compression/Rebound adjustment, while the custom-tuned Vector R coil rear shock is extra plush for big hits. The SRAM 8-speed X4 shifter and X5 rear derailleur offer plenty of pedaling versatility, and the Shimano quad-piston calipers with 203mm rotors help slow your roll in a hurry when necessary. A durable and stiff Race Face Chester crankset utilizes an e.Thirteen LG-1 chainguide to prevent chain drops. 800mm wide Syncros DH1.5 handlebars are clamped to a direct-mount stem with a 35mm clamping section for increased stiffness and control. Syncros MD30 wheels laced to Formula hubs make for strong hoops, ready to rail through rock gardens. And for extra downhill traction, the Schwalbe Downhill Magic Mary tires with Addix Soft compound do the trick.
