The SCOR 4060 ST GX is a heavy-duty, full-suspension trail bike, but with less weight than its counterpart, plus excellent components that have a strong ability to handle complex surfaces.
I took the SCOR 4060 ST GX with me and booked it on Skyscanner to go to Deer Valley Resort MTB Park, which has all routes for DH, AM, Trail and XC. The trails are mainly interconnected and are two-way, all undulating.
I didn’t feel much strain on the way up sitting on full-suspension trail bike, thanks to the full carbon frame that makes it lighter than its mountain bike counterpart.
On the steeper climbs, the SRAM GX Eagle Carbon Lunar chainring crankset combined with the SRAM GX Eagle (XG-1275) flywheel had a rich combination of speeds, and I adjusted the rear derailleur to a larger gear.
With the help of the light weight, I was able to climb up easily and effortlessly.
The SCOR 4060 ST GX had a front Maxxis Assegai 29 x 2.5″ and a rear Maxxis Dissector 29 x 2.4″ outer tire with great grip that stuck to the ground and made my climbing pedaling more efficient.
Finally, I think the climbing performance of the SCOR 4060 ST GX is top-notch and it climbs more easily than the same type of full-suspension trail bike.
I could feel the power of the SCOR 4060 ST GX as I descended.
First of all, the RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork and the RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock provided a front 150mm and a rear 140mm of travel, allowing me to still have a stable landing position when landing from a big drop.
But on fast descending rocky trails, it’s the pair of shock absorbers that I liked the most, with the active initial sensitivity combined with the large 29″ wheel diameter working quickly.
I just felt as stable as riding on flat roads, and for small potholes and raised rocks, they all crushed right through, and I didn’t feel much intense shaking.
As I navigated the winding trails with the SCOR 4060 ST GX, its powerful SRAM Code RSC brakes coupled with SRAM Centerline rotors 200mm discs, so to speak, held instantly and allowed me to slow the bike down in the shortest amount of time.
All in all, the SCOR 4060 ST GX is an all-round powerful full-suspension trail bike. It’s also a mountain bike that I can’t get enough of.
The SCOR 4060 ST GX is available in (S-XL) 4 sizes of internal cabling lightweight carbon frame.
The standard 29-inch large diameter wheelset provides a stable and fast riding experience.
For the handlebar set, the SCOR Carbon Bar handlebar with Burgtec Enduro MK3 stem takes into account the lightweight and flexible handling, in addition to the longer handlebar length, so there is sufficient length left for riders to cut short.
In addition, the chain protector and chain stabilizer on the rear fork are designed to reduce the noise of the chain slapping during riding on the one hand, and to reduce the chain falling off during intense riding on the other.
The downtube storage box includes a spare universal chainstay holder (SRAM UDH) and enough space for a multi-tool to keep trail essentials on hand.
Finally, the SCOR 4060 ST GX comes with a dropper design that allows you to switch your riding weight between climbing and descending at any time, ensuring that the rider is always in the right position.
The SCOR 4060 ST GX is an excellent full carbon frame with carefully selected components for a fierce descending ability and a light ride. But the price is a bit steep for riders on a budget.
To that end we offer a full-suspension trail bike with the exact same geometry and lightweight carbon frame, but with a little lower grade of components to make it more affordable for riders with less of a budget.
SCOR 4060 ST NX
The SCOR 4060 ST NX and SCOR 4060 ST GX have the same internal cabling full carbon frame plus a 29-inch wheelset with exceptional ability to handle complex roads.
The 4060 ST NX uses a RockShox Lyrik Select fork with 150mm of damping travel.
Although it is a basic Lyrik model, it is still powerful in performance and trustworthy on bumpy roads.
On the drivetrain components, it is equipped with the same reliable SRAM NX Eagle 1×12 speed components.
Although the tension of the rear derailleur will be a bit weaker, the sensitivity of the shifting is still good.
Speaking of the braking components, SRAM Code R brakes with SRAM Centerline rotors 200mm brake discs deliver the strong and reliable braking ability.
So, for riders with not so much of a budget, the SCOR 4060 ST NX is worth choosing for its cheaper price combined with components that also have a decent capability.

SCOR 4060 ST GX VS Orbea OIZ M-PRO AXS
Comparing the SCOR 4060 ST GX with the Orbea OIZ M-PRO AXS, the former uses a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork and a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock that provide 150mm of damping travel front and 140mm rear.
This is more than the latter’s Fox 34 Float SC Factory fork and Fox i-line DPS Factory rear shock provide 120mm of damping travel front and rear. So the former can handle more complex surfaces when riding downhill.
In terms of drivetrain, the latter’s Shimano XT M8100 mixed with Shimano XTR M9100 components are silkier than the former’s SRAM GX Eagle shifting, however, the SRAM GX Eagle’s shifting feels drier.
In the braking components, both brakes enjoy strong braking ability, along with the flexible and free braking effect.
Finally, between these two full-suspension trail bikes, I would recommend the SCOR 4060 ST GX more because of its longer damping travel to handle more complicated terrains.
SCOR 4060 ST GX VS Trek Top Fuel 9.8 GX AXS
The SCOR 4060 ST GX and Trek Top Fuel 9.8 GX AXS are both representative full-suspension trail bikes under their respective brands.
Although they both carry RockShox front and rear shock absorbers, the former has a longer shock travel to absorb more vibration on more complex surfaces.
In terms of drivetrain components, both bikes use SRAM GX 1×12-speed components, except that the Top Fuel 9.8 GX AXS applies an electronic version, which is simpler and easier to maintain than the former when it comes to adjusting shift parameters.
The former’s SRAM Code RSC has a larger piston on the clamp than the latter’s SRAM G2 RS 4-piston, so it has a more violent braking performance.
So, between these two bikes, I would still choose the SCOR 4060 ST GX with longer shock travel, which can support me on more complex descents.
SCOR 4060 ST GX VS YT Industries Izzo UNCAGED 7 29
The SCOR 4060 ST GX and the YT Industries Izzo UNCAGED 7 29 are two bikes different in style and suitable for riding routes.
As you can see from the shock travel and the shock used, the latter will have better climbing performance and be more suitable for long trail traversing rides.
The former, on the other hand, will be more stable and smooth in descending rides.
As to the drivetrain components, the Izzo UNCAGED 7 29 uses top-of-the-line SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS components that are lighter and more efficient than the SRAM GX components of the 4060 ST GX.
But when it comes to the braking components, the former’s SRAM Code RSC has more responsive braking power than the latter’s SRAM G2 Ultimate.
Finally, between these two mountain bikes, the YT Industries Izzo UNCAGED 7 29 is more suitable if you need long climbs and long forest rides, and the SCOR 4060 ST GX is more recommended if you want a more intense descent ride.
SCOR 4060 ST GX vs Ibis Ripmo V2S GX
Both the SCOR 4060 ST GX and the Ibis Ripmo V2S GX are full-suspension mountain bikes with large front and rear travel.
However, the latter uses a Fox Factory Series, Float 38 fork and Fox Float Factory Series, X2 with EVOL rear shock, and the former has a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork and RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock.
The latter delivers better support, but the RockShox shock will have better initial sensitivity.
In terms of drivetrain, the SCOR 4060 ST GX has a higher level of drivetrain components than the Ibis Ripmo V2S GX, which will also be more reliable and durable.
Speaking of braking components, the former SRAM Code RSC is still more powerful than the latter’s SRAM G2 R, 4 piston braking.
Overall, except for the Ibis Ripmo V2S GX which has a longer shock travel for more intense riding, I still recommend the SCOR 4060 ST GX more because it has a better all-round performance.
Above is my ride review of the SCOR 4060 ST GX. In our opinion, this is a lightweight full-suspension trail bike with full-carbon frame and premium suspension that provides an exceptional riding experience. That’s why we gave it a 4.9 rating.
