About Scott Sports

In 1958, Ed Scott, a skier and engineer from Idaho invented the first aluminium ski poles, replacing the sport’s standard bamboo and steel poles. It was then that a new brand, Scott was launched. Over the years, the Scott brand has matured and expanded into new markets.

In 1970, Scott entered the motocross market and created the first motocross-specific goggle. They later introduced boots, gear and accessories.

In 1989, Scott created the aerodynamic handlebar which was used by Greg Lemond in his 1989 Tour de France win.

In 2006, Scott decided to create a full line of running shoes for men and women. They contracted a research and development lab in Portland, Oregon.

Today, the Scott HQ is situated in Givisiez, Switzerland and is the home for all divisions including Moto, Bike, Running and Winter.

Scott makes shoes for both road and trail running. The Kinabalu Ultra RC and the Supertrac RC are their flagship trail racing shoes.
