    The Scott Plasma RC uses the Scott Plasma 5 frame with an top-shelf HMX TT carbon layup to maximize strength and minimize weight. Scott has long been considered pioneers and experts in the field the use of carbon in bicycle frames, and the result of this expertise is a perfect lay-up with optimal carbon orientation and fiber size.

    The Plasma 5 frame uses a Pressfit 86 bottom bracket standard, allowing for a wider bottom bracket shell for added stiffness. A dropped downtube and novel seat tube help integrate the frame shape with the wheels as well as any triathlon bikes on the market.

    The frame features a high-visibility, highly-reflective paint finish to make sure that you are seen when you're on the road.

    The Plasma 5 has two different stem options, a lower profile TT stem and this stem, which allows for a pseudo-integrated water bottle and top-tube food storage. The design of these add-ons is from Profile Design and helps create a deeper airfoil to integrate food and hydration storage into the aerodynamic profile of the bike.

    At Tri Shop we were a bit skeptical when we first saw these pieces, but our skepticism wasn't warranted. They are well made, easy to work with, and easy to remove and clean.

    The Plasma RC comes with electronic shifting courtesy of its Ultegra 8050 di2 derailleurs, Shimano Dura-Ace bar-end one-button shifters, and Ultegra 8060 brake lever shifters. You get a Shimano 11-speed chain, 11-28 Shimano Ultegra cassette, and a Shimano Ultegra 53/39 crankset.

    The Scott Plasma RC is equipped a Profile Design Aeria base bar especially made for the Plasma 5 and Profile T5+ carbon extensions.

    The Plasma RC ships with Syncros Race 22 aero profile wheels and Continental Grand Sport 25c tires.

    The saddle for 2018 is a Syncros RR1.5 Tri. We haven't had much luck with this saddle, so a saddle upgrade may go a long way to improving rider comfort.

    With its superior carbon layup, top-shelf aerodynamics, excellent integration, and Shimano electronic shifting, the Scott Plasma RC is a spectacular bike for the competitive athlete looking for an edge.
