Scott says new Plasma TT bike is 'the fastest it's ever made' and it's no longer just for triathletes

Scott has redesigned its iconic Plasma time trial (TT) bike, creating the new Plasma RC TT. 

To do so the brand says it “went back to the drawing board with a simple goal: build the fastest bike we’ve ever made”. If Scott’s claims are true it’s been a success – it says the Plasma RC is 12% lighter than its predecessor – the Scott Plasma 6, while being 33 seconds faster over a 40km TT course when ridden at the same power output.
