    Suntour vs rockshox

    Hi. So ive been deciding between scott scale 970 and 980 all the components are the same but the fork.
    Scott scale 970 (1150) has the RockShox 30 Silver TK 100mm and scale 980 (989) has the Suntour XCR RL-R 100mm and i wonder if the rockshox is worth the extra money.
    Thanks

    The 970 version is air. But it's not a high performance fork.
    What's the price difference?

    This bike has a good fork. Marzocchi is owned by Fox.

    The price difference is 150 and bikes like you sent me are not available in my country (estonia) in here its like scott, merida and trek but trek is only available with 27.5 wheels but im a really tall guy and want 29.
    That bike you linked is really nice for its price, in estonia the prices are higher i think. You can get this for 1350

    From the Scott site:
    Scale 980: Suntour XCR RL-R / Coil Spring
    Scale 970: RockShox 30 Silver TK Solo Air

    Go to their site and compare all of the specs to see if there's anything else that matters to you.

    My inclination would be to buy the 970.
