Scott Ebikes Riding Particularly Racy in 2023 Season Again

Shortly before the end of last year, Scott presented another novelty for the 2023 season. The Scott Solace eRide is an ebike weighing only around twelve kilograms. Whereby an ebike is actually the wrong description. The Solace eRide is in fact a platform on the basis of which two e-road bike variants and three e-gravel bike variants have been created. Because this approach deserves a closer look, we turned our full attention to the bikes and their innovative HPR50 e-drive from TQ. Read more about it here.

Scott Lumen eRide and Contessa Lumen eRide

The chase for the title of lightest e-mountain bike has reached an incredibly high level this year. On the one hand, Fazua with the Ride 60 and TQ with the HPR50 have presented new drives that have redefined limits in terms of weight and integration. On the other hand, in the meantime quite a few manufacturers are using these drives and putting their respective know-how on the line.

Scott is now also getting in on the action – with its brand new Lumen eRide. A completely new name in the manufacturer’s ebike range. However, Scott did not start from scratch with this project. Rather, the Scott Spark was the inspiration for a bike that has achieved enormous popularity worldwide thanks to the countless sporting successes of the Olympic Champion, multiple world Champion and overall World Cup winner Nino Schurter from Switzerland. The Lumen eRide transfers his concept to the world of electrically assisted bicycles. In detail, this means:

  • sporty designed cross-country mountain bike
  • moderate suspension travel of 130 millimetres
  • full suspension instead of classic hardtail frame with only one suspension fork
  • single-pivot shock
  • carbon frame for maximum weight reduction

Light and powerful at the same time

Given this specification, it is clear what the Lumen eRide wants to be. First and foremost, it’s about top speed paired with a fair amount of endurance. And Scott has given the bike everything it needs to achieve this. One of the most important cornerstones is the HPR50 drive from TQ, which was presented at the Eurobike in Frankfurt. Its weight-to-power ratio alone, at 1.8 kilograms with a maximum torque of 50 Newton metres, impresses every time you call up these figures. You may already know the system from the hardly less impressive Trek Fuel Exe.

Due to its character as a drive system for a light e-MTB, the motor is content with an energy consumption that is significantly lower than that of a Bosch Performance CX Line. The corresponding battery is correspondingly smaller and therefore lighter. According to TQ, the 360 watt hours of capacity in eco mode are good enough for 2,000 metres of altitude or about four hours of pure riding time. The top model of the range, the Lumen eRide 900 SL, is equipped with an additional external range extender as standard, which has 160 watt hours.

Damper completely hidden

The carbon frame houses the motor, battery and shock. Integrated shock and Scott, wasn’t that something before? Absolutely right. Scott has already gained experience with a similar system on the Patron eRide. While the shock is docked in the top tube and can be reached from there, the case is somewhat different with the Lumen eRide. The damper with a simple pivot point is part of the seat tube. Near the bottom bracket, a flap can be opened on the down tube to access the valve of the damper. This is not the most comfortable place to reach and of course the area that gets dirty the easiest. However, this solution probably cannot be realised without a compromise.

Scott Solace eRide 10 first ride review

Scott has resurrected the Solace name and reimagined it as an electric road bike and gravel bike range. Although the range consists predominantly of electric gravel bike models, there are also two road offerings.

TQ provides its HPR50 electric bike motor and battery system, which it claims to be the lightest, quietest and most natural system to ride. Although gravel riding is the primary FOCUS of the Solace range, Scott says it wanted the platform to also work as a road bike from the project’s conception – that’s the flavour of Solace eRide I’m testing here.

If gravel is more your bag, check out my first ride review of the Scott Solace Gravel eRide 10. My early impressions, based on a single 63km ride, are that the Scott Solace eRide seems largely to deliver on its promise and the TQ system stands out with its lighter weight and more compact construction.

Scott Solace eRide first impressions

All of the bikes in the Solace range utilise the same frame, but differ in spec choices to adapt them to road or gravel.

The Solace eRide frame is claimed to weigh 1.2kg in a size medium and is constructed from the brand’s HMX carbon fibre.

It runs on 700c wheels and has clearance for up to 50mm tyres or 45mm tyres with mudguards, which there are mounting points for. There is also provision for a kickstand, with mounting points on the underside face of the non-driveside chainstay.

There’s an integrated bar-stem from Scott’s in-house brand, Syncros, which hides the cables and hydraulic hoses.

Scott specs Schwalbe Pro One tyres in a girthy 38mm width for the Solace eRide and also specs Shimano 2x road drivetrains in favour of the SRAM 1x drivetrains found on the Solace Gravel.

The brand uses its more road-oriented Syncros Creston IC SL bar-stem combo, as well as a Syncros Belcarra saddle. The Syncros Duncan SL Aero seatpost features on all of the bikes, irrespective of genre.

Scott Solace eRide 10 geometry

The Solace range’s geometry is inspired heavily by the brand’s Addict Gravel. The notable updates are an additional 1mm increase in stack and a 10mm longer chainstay to balance the weight distribution of the battery and motor.

Scott Solace eRide 10 specification

At £10,999 / 11,999.99 / €11,999, the top-spec Solace eRide 10 I rode is a pricey proposition.

It’s a pretty decked-out build, as you would expect.

Shimano’s latest Dura-Ace Di2 R9270 is on groupset duties. There are no deviations, other than the FSA crankset, due to the use of the TQ HPR50 motor.

scott, ebikes, riding, particularly, racy

The aforementioned Schwalbe Pro One tyres are installed on 40mm-deep Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels. They have a 30mm external and 25mm internal rim width, good for both road and gravel use.

Scott Solace eRide 10 first ride impressions

This first ride review is based on a 63km ride with almost 900m of elevation around Massa Marittima in Italy, offering a taste of what the Solace eRide 10 is all about.

The Tuscan roads were mostly in pristine condition and the ride was largely downhill or flat for the first 34km, followed by a 12km climb and a long, sweeping descent to the finish.

I tend to notice instantly when I’m riding what is natively a gravel bike on the road, the higher bottom bracket often being the instant giveaway.

However, the Solace eRide is a rare exception because the geometry felt pretty road-like on my first ride, although the handling isn’t quite as poised when railing it round a corner.

The compliance felt balanced on both ends, although you can’t underestimate the role the 38mm tyres have to play in determining ride quality.

The frame felt stable on the descents, thanks in part to the longer 435mm chainstay length, and its steering was predictable and easy to handle.

There’s a charge port at the base of the down tube where it meets the bottom bracket junction. Oscar Huckle / Our Media

TQ’s HPR50 system mostly impressed, with its assistance delivered naturally when riding below the 15.5mph assistance limit imposed here.

It’s a generally quiet system to ride, and I could only hear some whirring noises from the motor kicking into action up the long climb.

Other than the 12km climb, we were riding well above the 15.5mph limit.

I experimented with riding with the motor off before the climb. While it’s possible to maintain a high speed, I felt held back more on this bike than the Solace Gravel, due to the more consistent speeds you ride on the road.

The additional weight of the motor and battery is noticeable, as well as presenting more resistance when pedalling than a conventional drivetrain without a motor assistance system.

Reaching for the top tube display button to change modes, while also maintaining concentration on the road, was frustrating, although it offers a cleaner aesthetic and reduces handlebar clutter.

This is compounded by the fact that (at the moment) you need to cycle up and down through modes.

For example, if you change down from the High mode to the Mid setting and want to return to the High mode, you’ll need to press the button five times, going down through the Eco and off modes before passing up through Eco and Mid again.

I support Scott’s decision to do away with a handlebar remote because it makes for a cleaner front end. I’m told TQ is working with Shimano and SRAM to integrate changing the motor mode via the shifter button. However, this is a while away yet.

For reference, I finished the ride on 28 per cent battery life. Bearing in mind my route and how much I leant on the motor for climbing, early indications are I’d likely be able to achieve more than 1,000m of elevation if I were conservative with using the battery on the flats.

Build impressions

This was my first time riding Shimano’s latest Dura-Ace R9270 12-speed electronic groupset.

Although a 60km ride didn’t give me enough time to form a fully fledged opinion, the shifting speed is noticeably faster than the outgoing 11-speed generation, especially the front derailleur. It also seems there is more of a defined click to the shifter. I was able to elicit some disc brake pad rub on my test bike after any braking.

I’m not convinced of the choice of a 2x groupset for the Solace eRide. With the motor assistance, I didn’t need to spend a lot of time in the inner chainring. That said, if you live in a particularly mountainous area, you may benefit from it.

I found the matching of a Dura-Ace groupset slightly at odds with the 38mm-wide tyres. In this road-led spec, such wide tyres could be construed as being too girthy for road use, while the clutchless rear derailleur isn’t as suited to gravel as (for example) a Shimano GRX option.

scott, ebikes, riding, particularly, racy

It’s a curious mix, and I wonder if the (still clutchless) Ultegra Di2 build would be a slightly better compromise, saving you some money in the process.

The Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels impressed, with the 40mm rim depth offering tangible aerodynamic benefits. The 38mm tyres seem to have generous grip and felt reasonably quick-rolling for their size.

The Syncros Creston IC SL bar-stem combination didn’t seem particularly comfortable and it transmitted vibrations. It’s interesting that I found the IC SL X variant on the Solace Gravel more forgiving, despite confirming with Syncros that both bar-stems use an identical carbon layup.

I didn’t get on with the Syncros Belcarra saddle, although saddles are a personal choice.

Scott Solace eRide 910 early verdict

My early impressions suggest Scott is onto a winning formula with the Solace eRide’s frame geometry for road use. The shared geometry translates well to the road and the spec is fitting for the high price tag.

The TQ HPR50 is lighter and more compact than other systems. The more consistent speeds involved in road riding mean I need more testing before reaching a verdict.

However, there’s plenty of promise. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Solace eRide fares on more familiar roads over a longer testing period.

The new 2023 SCOTT Solace (Gravel) eRIDE – A gravel ebike with soul?

With the Solace eRIDE and the Solace Gravel eRIDE, SCOTT present two drop bar ebikes based on the same frame and a TQ motor. The e-system is so discreet that nobody will realise you’re “cheating” until you’ve passed them on the climbs. We’ll tell you who the bikes are for and whether the new Solace can bring the cheer it promises.

The big multisport brand SCOTT have plenty of expertise when it comes to ebikes. It’s predominantly the eMTBs of the Swiss brand that are on the rise, including the super light SCOTT Lumen eRIDE that was introduced by our sister magazine E-MOUNTAINBIKE. That said, SCOTT have already added an electric option to their drop bar portfolio, too, with the SCOTT Addict eRIDE. While the Addict eRIDE relies on a hub motor from MAHLE, the all-new SCOTT Solace models feature a mid-mounted motor supplied by German brand TQ. From our experience, mid-mounted motors have less of an impact on the handling compared to a hub motor, which increases the rear wheel’s rotating mass. Both systems fare well in terms of how well they’re hidden: the MAHLE hub motor is barely visible behind the cassette and the mid-mounted TQ motor is inconspicuously integrated into the bottom bracket.

SCOTT even opt against the use of a handlebar remote on the Solace in favour of cleaner integration. As such, the TQ system can only be operated via a button on the display in the top tube: double click to switch between the support modes, and a single click to turn the system on and off.

We tested whether the SCOTT Solace Gravel eRIDE can only perform on rough paths or whether it’s a viable option as an everyday commuter, highlighting who this new e-gravel bike and the all-road alternative are for.

The SCOTT Solace eRIDE in detail – An all-rounder in disguise?

The new SCOTT Solace eRIDE is available in a gravel and an all-road configuration, relying on a beautifully finished carbon frame and fork made with SCOTTs high-end HMX fibres, which promise to make for a somewhat lighter layup than the HMF fibres. The frame can accommodate two water bottles in the front triangle, and it has two mounting points on the top tube for a frame bag, allowing you to carry all your essentials on the bike, and thanks to the wide and flared drop bar, you also have the option of attaching a large bar bag for multi-day rides. Unfortunately, the thin chainstay protector on the gravel variant couldn’t keep the chain entirely quiet. The cockpit is nice and tidy with all cables routed internally throughout. Further underlining this is the lack of a remote on the handlebar, which also makes for fewer distractions while you ride. It’s only upon closer inspection that you’ll spot the motor hidden in the bottom bracket and discover that this is in fact an ebike. You’ll find two mounting points on the bottom of the handlebar/stem combination to attach a mount for your bike computer, or a dual-sided option for a bike computer and a headlight (powered by the on-board battery), which is great for commuters.

The speed sensor for the motor has been integrated into the frame to such an extent that it’s basically invisible, with its counterpart hidden in the axle. All models come equipped with an equally discreet mount for a kickstand on the bottom of the left chainstay. Combined with the mudguard mounts, the otherwise very sporty bike can be turned into a practical everyday vehicle. You can get a matching kickstand and mudguards from Syncros.

The motor integration on the 2023 SCOTT Solace eRIDE

Based near Munich, Germany, tech company TQ have been mixing up the ebike market since the start of this year. The TQ HPR 50 showed great potential from the moment it hit the market and immediately garnered interest from the bike industry, in particular with regard to light eMTBs. In the drop bar segment, the HPR 50 has, until now, been reserved for the TREK Domane and the BMC Roadmachine 01 AMP X. Thanks to its patented Harmonic Pin Ring technology, the TQ HPR 50 can combine the transmission and motor into one compact unit, doing away with the traditional cogs and planetary gears of classic transmissions. As a result, the unit is quieter and more efficient since it has fewer cogs, thereby reducing both friction and noise. Its 50 Nm nominal output doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to provide the rider with a decent amount of support.

The motor gets powered by a 360 Wh battery, which you can extend by another 160 Wh with the external Range Extender. On the 2023 SCOTT Solace eRIDE, the Range Extender gets attached to the down tube in place of the water bottle, using a clip mechanism that was developed in house. You can easily switch between the water bottle and the Range Extender by simply clipping in whichever option the tour calls for.

The bracket on the Range Extender is compact and bombproof. With the Range Extender plugged in, the display indicates a total battery capacity of 150 %. The discharge sequence is set so that the Range Extender always gets drained first, followed by the internal battery. When the Range Extender nears the end of its charge, the SCOTT Solace doesn’t stop. Instead, the motor keeps assisting without flinching as its power source transitions seamlessly from the auxiliary to the main battery. You can charge the bike with the Range Extender plugged in. In that case, the discharging sequence is reversed, first charging the internal battery and then the auxiliary. The 160 Wh TQ Range Extender weighs 900 g.

In the e-road bike market, the TQ HPR 50 faces its biggest competition from hub motors made by brands such as MAHLE. There’s the MAHLE X20 in the BMC Roadmachine AMP ONE, for example. Hub motors are more widely spread in the road segment than on gravel bikes. In general, however, the selection of electric drop bar bikes on the market is rather limited.

Road and gravel – The different model variants of the SCOTT Solace

The all-road and gravel variants of the bike are based on the same frame and fork combination as well as the same wheels. Theoretically, that means you could fit 50 mm wide gravel tires to the all-road version and head off-road. The only differences are the handlebar and groupset.

There are two different models of the 2023 SCOTT Solace eRIDE all-road variant available: the flagship Solace eRIDE 10 and the more affordable Solace eRIDE 20. Both come equipped with a Shimano groupset and extra wide 38C Pro ONE EVO tires from Schwalbe. With clearances for up to 50 mm tires, skinnier tires would look somewhat lost in the frame.

SCOTT Solace eRIDE 10 20 – The components of the e-all-roaders

The top-end SCOTT Solace eRIDE 10 features Shimano’s DURA-ACE Di2 groupset and high-end Zipp 303 wheels. For € 11,999, the Range Extender comes as standard on this model. As is, the bike tips the scales at 11.75 kg, excluding the Range Extender. The second all-road model, the SCOTT Solace eRIDE 20, also relies on electronic shifting thanks to the Shimano ULTEGRA Di2 groupset and, together with the Syncros Capital wheels, it will set you back by € 7,999. According to the manufacturer, it weighs 12.45 kg.

SCOTT Solace Gravel eRIDE 10, 20, 30 CONTESSA – The spec of the e-gravel machine

There are four models of the SCOTT Solace e-gravel bike available. All of them come with a SRAM groupset and super wide 50 mm Schwalbe G-ONE Overland tires. The SCOTT Solace Gravel eRIDE 10 is the top of the line and, like the premium all-road model, it rolls on Zipp 303 wheels and comes with the Range Extender as standard. SRAM’s Force XPLR AXS groupset takes care of the gears. Despite the 1×12 gearing, it offers a decent gear range. In this guise, the size M bike weighs 12.6 kg. The SCOTT Solace Gravel eRIDE 20 features the SRAM Rival AXS groupset. In this case, the lower-end electric model in the SRAM portfolio also relies on a 1x setup, as is typical for gravel bikes. The Solace Gravel eRIDE 20 is priced at €7,599 and weighs in at 13.35 kg, according to SCOTT. Along with that, there’s the Solace Gravel eRIDE 30 and the women’s specific CONTESSA edition. The only difference between these two is the colour. For the gears, you’ve got to make do with the mechanical SRAM Rival 1×11 drivetrain, offering a smaller range and bigger jumps between gears. Both models are priced at € 5,999 and weigh 13.5 kg according to the manufacturer’s specs.

The geometry of the SCOTT Solace eRIDE – An eAddict or what?

The geometry of the SCOTT Solace eRIDE leans heavily on that of the aggressive SCOTT Addict Gravel. It’s meant to be fast, which is why it relies on the same head and seat tube angles as well as the same reach measurement as the Addict. It’s only the chainstay length that differs on the e-gravel bike, which is 1 cm longer and probably due to the motor. Whether this will allow you to set record times, you’ll find out in the first ride review below. The bike is available in five sizes, ranging from 49 to 58 cm. The CONTESSA variant for women relies on the same geometry, though the biggest size available is 56 cm.

Riding the SCOTT Solace Gravel eRIDE 10 and its all-road pendant

The SCOTT Solace eRIDE isn’t just hard to distinguish from an analogue road bike, the support it offers is very inconspicuous, too. The engagement and disengagement of the motor is hardly perceptible even in the highest support mode, though it offers a decent amount of assistance with a maximum support of 50 Nm. It certainly takes a load off on the climbs, making you feel like you’ve had a nutritious breakfast and your legs have been well rested. If the highest support mode feels like a little too much, you can try one of the two lower support modes, or no support at all. While you can ride without support, you can’t ride with the system switched off, at least not with the electronic SRAM drivetrain since it gets powered by the on-board battery. However, there’s no need to worry about getting stranded when the battery runs out since it always keeps a reserve charge, enough to shift 300 times. With the support deactivated, the motor produces no noticeable drag when pedalling, barring the fact that you’ve got to pedal a 12.5 kg bike. You’ll hardly notice when you cross the 25 km/h threshold either, which is a common occurrence on drop bar ebikes. When riding above the 25 km/h limit, the motor cuts out smoothly, saving the battery and thereby increasing your range. So, you better keep up the pace ;).

Now let’s get to the Gravel counterpart: riding it on bumpy terrain, the 50 mm wide tires have a significant effect. Thanks to their high volume, you can run them at low pressures without having to fear for the rims. Doing so adds comfort and grip. On loose and dusty gravel, however, the wheels can still spin out when you put the hammer down and you underestimate the power of the motor. The bike can do with the added comfort of high-volume tires since the one-piece stem and handlebar combination together with the burly fork are on the stiffer end of the spectrum, again resembling the Addict’s sporty character. It’s only by getting into the drops that you get some level of compliance from the otherwise stiff and precise front end.

Tuning-Tipp: knobby tires on the all-road variant for improved off-road capability on the way home

Overall, the bike’s handling feels very well-adjusted, offering a nicely balanced riding position that strikes a good compromise between long-distance suitability and performance. The added weight of the motor doesn’t affect the handling negatively due to its low centre of gravity. Both the Gravel and the all-road model implement the rider’s steering input willingly and without delay, and the rear wheel follows suit. We were particularly impressed with the 38 mm tires on the all-road model, which were developed exclusively for SCOTT together with Schwalbe. They feel very planted on the road and generate plenty of comfort without giving the impression that riding into a headwind. On the descents, they offer enough cornering grip to make you feel like you’re riding a MotoGP bike – as long as you resist the temptation to stick your knee out and slide it on the ground. The Shimano DURA-ACE groupset functions flawlessly, providing top notch ergonomics on the hoods.

Who is the new SCOTT Solace (Gravel) eRIDE for?

SCOTT market the Solace as a bike for all Addict fans that are new to the scene. Indeed, newcomers who want to keep up with fitter, more seasoned riders could be one potential target group. In case that’s you, you’ve got to be careful not to overestimate your riding skill just cause the motor makes you feel unstoppable. We can also imagine the bike as a good option for everyday commuters. The options to mount a kickstand, an integrated headlight, and mudguards increase the bike’s versatility and practicality enormously, and together with the frame and/or handlebar bag, you’ve also got added luggage carrying capacity. You could ride to work in the mornings without breaking a sweat thanks to the motor, getting in some cardio on the way back home in the evenings – both the Solace Gravel and the all-road version would fare brilliantly doing so.

Our conclusion on the new 2023 SCOTT Solace (Gravel) eRIDE

With the 2023 SCOTT Solace (Gravel) eRIDE, SCOTT present two successful interpretations of a drop bar ebike featuring a high level of integration, as you’d expect from the Swiss brand. It’s an incredibly inconspicuous ebike with a lot of standout features. Both the all-road and Gravel variants are well-specced with components that are fit for purpose. If needed, they can be equipped with a range of practical everyday accessories for commuting, too, making the most of the electric support.

Scott Bike’s History

Story of Innovation

1958: Ed Scott, out of Sun Valley, ID, invented the first tapered aluminum poles to replace bamboo and steel poles, used in the time. This quickly put Scott on the map as huge innovators of the ski industry.

1970: Scott entered the Motocross market with a moto specific goggle. Later, Scott would make boots and grips for dirt bikes.

1989: Charley French created the first ever aerodynamic handlebar that a would go on to win Greg LeMond the Tour de France that year

1991: Scott produces its first front suspension, called the Unishock.

1992: The Endorphin is the first production carbon mountain bike. that was used in the World Championships and the Olympics that year.

1998: The Genius is introduced as the first Scott full-suspension bike. This was the start of having three suspension adjustments for open, traction control, and full lock-out.

2007: The iconic Addict is produced at a super light weight: 790 gram frame. You will still see these around! This bike has a long history as Mark Cavendish The Missile from Man. used it on many occasions to win sprint finishes.

2010: Twin-Loc lever was introduced. as a single handlebar lever to control front and rear suspension, allowing riders to keep their hands on the handlebars while controlling suspension.

Presently: Destroying it!

on Scott Bikes.

Scott Sports is a Swiss company that was founded in 1958 by Ed Scott, an American engineer and inventor. Scott is known for producing high-quality, innovative sports equipment, including bicycles, ski equipment, and running gear. The company has a long history of producing cutting-edge bicycles and has been at the forefront of technological advancements in the cycling industry.

Scott’s first foray into the world of cycling was in the 1970s with the production of motocross bikes. However, it wasn’t until the 1980s that Scott began to FOCUS on producing high-quality mountain bikes. In 1986, Scott introduced the Scott Super Evolution, a full-suspension mountain bike that was one of the first of its kind. This bike was a major success and helped establish Scott as a leading manufacturer of mountain bikes.

In the 1990s, Scott continued to innovate in the mountain bike market with the introduction of the Scott Pro Racing Team. This team was composed of some of the top mountain bike riders in the world and helped to further establish Scott as a leader in the industry. In 1992, Scott also introduced the Scott Genius, a full-suspension mountain bike that was designed for both cross-country and downhill riding. This bike was well received by riders and helped to cement Scott’s reputation as a top mountain bike brand.

In the 2000s, Scott expanded its product line to include road bikes, triathlon bikes, and cyclocross bikes. The company also introduced the Scott CR1, a high-performance road bike that was designed for racing. This bike was well received by riders and helped to solidify Scott’s position as a leading manufacturer of road bikes.

In recent years, Scott has continued to push the boundaries of cycling technology with the introduction of its e-bike line. Scott’s e-bikes are designed to provide riders with a high-performance, electric-assisted cycling experience. The company has also continued to produce high-quality mountain bikes and road bikes, with a FOCUS on using advanced materials and construction techniques to create lightweight, durable, and efficient bikes.

In summary, Scott Sports has a long history of producing innovative and high-quality sports equipment, with a particular FOCUS on cycling. From its beginnings as a motocross bike manufacturer to its current position as a leading producer of mountain, road, and e-bikes, Scott has consistently been at the forefront of technological advancements in the cycling industry.
