The SCOR 4060 ST GX seems to tick all the boxes: elegant, customisable frame, tool mount, integrated storage compartment and a solid spec. Moreover, it’s in line with our testing philosophy, as it’s designed uncompromisingly for trail fun and not for racing. But how does it fare against the strong opponents?

SCOR 4060 ST GX | 150/140 mm (f/r) | 14 kg in size L | € 6,299 | Manufacturer’s website

SCOR is a relatively young Swiss brand that belongs to XC and road bike manufacturer BMC. The € 6,299 4060 ST GX relies on a flexible frame platform that can be built both as a trail and enduro bike and was designed primarily for uncompromised riding fun. The short-travel trail version in this test tilts the scales at 14.0 kg and combines 150/140 mm travel at the front and rear, respectively.

The spec of the SCOR 4060 ST GX

Aside from the very elegant frame silhouette, the SCOR 4060 enters the competition with a very unique selling point: a pre-cut and fully customisable frame tape, which protects the top and down tube from scratches and ensures an individual look – the Swiss are killing two birds with one stone! SCOR teamed up with frame protection specialist Slicy, allowing you to choose from countless standard designs for € 35 each or even create your own using using the Slicy configurator – very cool! The pre-cut frame protector fits all frame sizes and can be adapted to bigger frames using additional tape patches.

With the flip chip you can convert the SCOR 4060 from a trail bike to an enduro rig.
Down to the smallest detail
At SCOR, nothing is left to chance: the rubber chainstay protector is meant to replicate the brand’s local jump line.
Small but mighty
The storage compartment might not be massive, but always has room for a spare mech hanger. Furthermore, the Velcro fasteners allow you to hold your items securely in place.

Specific Features


Tuning Tip: long-travel dropper post like OneUp V2 180 mm | tires with more robust casing and softer rubber compound on the front wheel

Short (of) protection
The fender is supposed to protect the shock from muck and water. In our opinion, this could be a tad longer!
Customisation ain’t rocket science
You can change the look of the bike just by changing the frame protector on the top and down tube.

The frame of the SCOR features a tool mount on the top tube and a small storage compartment in the down tube. This can be accessed through a flap on the bottom of the down tube and offers enough room for a multitool and a few more small items, which can be secured with Velcro straps. Moreover, the storage box comes with a spare UDH mech hanger as standard. While this isn’t exactly the cream of the crop in terms of haptics, the closing mechanism is reliable and intuitive to use. Another cool detail is the head badge, which is neither glued nor bolted to the head tube but integrated into the carbon frame. The ribbed seat and chainstay protector is meant to replicate the brand’s local jump line and effectively prevents chainslap. A chain guide is neatly integrated into the frame, while a small fender protects the shock from muck and water – in our opinion, this could be a tad longer!

When it comes to the spec, SCOR chose functionality over bling, combining a high-end RockShox Pike Ultimate fork and Super Deluxe Ultimate shock, which as usual deliver excellent performance on the trail. The cockpit consists of SCOR’s own-brand 800 mm carbon handlebars and Burgtec Enduro MK3 stem. Shifting is taken care of by a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain while SRAM CODE RSC brakes do stopping duties. The RSC model features tool-free reach and bite point adjustments as well as SRAM’s SwingLink technology, which was designed to minimise dead band and improve braking performance. Unfortunately, the 160 mm BikeYoke DIVINE dropper post is too short for a trail bike in size L. For the wheels, SCOR rely on a DT Swiss XM 1700 alloy wheelset and MAXXIS tires, combining an ASSEGAI with EXO casing at the front and DISSECTOR with EXO+ casing at the rear, both in the hard MaxxTerra rubber compound. We recommend upgrading to tires with a more robust casing paired with a softer rubber compound at the front (e.g. MaxxGrip).

The geometry of the SCOR 4060 ST GX

The SCOR 4060 ST GX comes in a total of four sizes, S to XL, providing a suitable option for all riders between 155 cm and 200 cm tall. A flip chip in the shock mount allows you to change the bottom bracket height. By using a shock with longer stroke, you can increase the rear travel and convert the SCOR 4060 ST from a 140 mm trail bike into a potent 160 mm enduro rig. Moreover, by turning the angle-adjust headset upside down, you can slacken the head angle from 65.5° to 64.6°. Reach is 485 mm while the seat tube measures 440 mm. The latter would be short enough to provide plenty of freedom, but the short-travel dropper post prevents you from using its full potential.

The SCOR 4060 ST GX on the trail

The pedalling position of the SCOR 4060 ST GX is compact yet comfortable, albeit a little front-heavy, thus putting a little pressure on your hands when riding on level ground. Going uphill, the 4060 is comfortable and the front wheel always remains planted on the ground, even on steep climbs. The rear suspension bobs slightly when pedalling, but then again, this is so minimal that the climb switch isn’t required.
