Bike park vibes for everyone and everywhere? With its massive 190/180 mm of travel (front/rear), Bosch Performance Line CX motor and 750 Wh battery, the new SCOR 6080 Z wants to be the ultimate lift replacement and/or shuttling device for remote areas without uplifts. We tested the SCOR 6080 Z to see how it fares on the trail and test whether the concept even makes sense.

Despite being relatively young, Swiss manufacturer SCOR has already featured in a few of our E-MOUNTAINBIKE comparison tests, with bikes which have always stood out from the crowd for their fun riding character. The best example for this is SCOR’s all-rounder, the 4060 Z, which has taken on 26 of the hottest eMTBs of the season in our big 2024 e-mountainbike group test. SCOR’s own home trails offer the ideal conditions to develop their bikes, and, of course, to have fun riding – mountains, Alpine pastures and trails aplenty. But what do you do if you’re not as lucky as them, and don’t have a bike park with a lift on your doorstep? That’s exactly the question the Swiss engineering team asked themselves when developing the SCOR 6080 Z, which packs a whopping 190/180 mm of travel (f/r) and a mullet wheel setup, with a bigger 29″ wheel at the front and smaller 27.5″ wheel at the rear. Not only is it SCOR’s first alloy eMTB, but also their first electric mountain bike to use a Bosch Smart System motor. The 85 Nm Performance Line CX motor draws its power from a removable 750 Wh battery. With its sporty and slightly rowdier character, the SCOR 6080 Z wants to appeal to a younger target group. The GX spec variant we tested retails at € 6,999, tipping the scales at 25,9 kg in size L.

The 2025 SCOR 6080 Z eMTB in detail

Despite the new frame material, the 6080 Z still fits comfortably into the rest of the SCOR range. The alloy frame is strongly reminiscent of its smaller brother, the SCOR 4060 Z, featuring the same distinctive wedge-shaped swingarm, split seat tube and deeply integrated shock. The SCOR 6080 Z doesn’t try to hide its aluminium nature, with the visible, high-quality weld seams perfectly matching the bike’s beefy look. The cables are routed internally and disappear into the frame through cable ports on the head tube, ensuring a clean overall look. With the battery removed, you can easily reach the cables inside the frame, which makes servicing a lot easier – cool!

Even from a distance, the 6080 Z is clearly recognisable as a SCOR with its wedge-shaped swingarm and the deeply integrated shock splitting the seat tube.
The exposed weld seams go well with the bike’s chunky, industrial look.
The cables disappear into the frame through cable ports on the head tube, and only reappear shortly before reaching the components where they’re needed.

Amongst the other practical features are the bottle cage mount on the down tube and the tool mount on the underside of the top tube, which can be used to secure all your trail essentials directly to the frame. A small plastic fender protects the shock from flying debris, while a generously sized chainstay protector prevents paint chips and chain slap. With a little imagination, its waves are visually reminiscent of the jump line at the Chaumont bike park.

The tool mount at the bottom of the top tube allows you to attach all your trail essentials directly to the frame.
Let’s jump! The well-dimensioned chainstay protector keeps the rear end quiet, and its waves are visually reminiscent of the jump line at the Chaumont bike park.

The frame comes standard with Slicy protective tape, which emphasises the bike’s rowdy character. The tape can be customised with several designs from SCOR’s online shop.

The protective tape comes standard with the bike and can be customised in SCOR’s online store.

Not only is the 6080 Z SCOR’s first alloy eMTB, but also their first Bosch-powered e-mountainbike. The Bosch Performance Line CX, which delivers 85 Nm of torque and 600 watts peak power, is seamlessly integrated into the frame of the bike.

The Bosch Performance Line CX motor blends in beautifully with the SCOR 6080 Z’s frame silhouette.

The motor draws its power from a big 750 Wh battery, which can be removed from the down tube for external charging using an Allen key and a spanner. This means that you can charge the battery at home without having to schlepp the whole bike into your living room. Charging the battery internally is done quickly and easily thanks to the easily accessible charging port above the motor.

The battery can be removed from the downtube using an Allen key and a spanner.

To match the bike’s sporty focus, SCOR reduced the motor’s periphery components to the bare minimum. The Bosch System Controller in the top tube provides all the basics, including battery charge status and current support mode, while the minimalist Bosch Mini Remote on the handlebars ensures a clean cockpit and feels good under your thumb. If you want to see more data while riding, you can connect the bike to your smartphone using the Bosch eBike Flow app. After all, if you’re riding the SCOR in the places it was designed for, you probably shouldn’t be looking down at a screen. To see how the Bosch Performance Line CX motor performs on the trail and what other features it offers, head over to our detailed motor test.

The spec of our 2025 SCOR 6080 Z test bike

For this first ride review, we tested the SCOR 6080 Z GX flagship model, which has a no frills gravity-oriented spec. The cable operated 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain ensures precise shifting, making this clear right from the very first crank spin. SCOR didn’t compromise on braking performance, combining powerful SRAM CODE RSC four-piston stoppers and 220/200 mm rotors, which provide powerful, reliable deceleration even on long, steep DH tracks.

The cable-operated, 12-speed SRAM GX-Eagle drivetrain ensures precise, butter-smooth shifting.
The powerful SRAM CODE RSC four-piston brakes are paired with a big 220 mm rotor at the front and 200 mm disc at the rear, ensuring reliable deceleration, even on long descents.

At 160 mm, the BikeYoke DIVINE seatpost has too little travel for an eMTB in size L, unfortunately it can’t be inserted all the way into the frame, which is due to the position of the shock. Both the 190 mm RockShox ZEB Ultimate fork and 180 mm RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate air shock offer countless adjustment options and deliver a tremendous performance on the trail, just like the robust DT Swiss H 1900 hybrid alloy wheelset, which is paired with MAXXIS tires.

While at 185 mm, the BikeYoke DIVINE dropper post offers a decent amount of travel, unfortunately it can’t be inserted all the way into the seat tube.
RockShox’s top-tier Ultimate suspension leaves nothing to be desired, both in terms of adjustments and trail performance.

Speaking of tires, SCOR rely on a rather unusual double-ASSEGAI configuration, which ensures plenty of traction thanks to the aggressive profile and soft MaxxGrip rubber compound. The rear tire comes in the robust Doubledown casing, while the front one features the thinner EXO+ casing. Given the bike’s character and intended use, you could run the robust DoubleDown casing both at the front and rear, especially if you spend most of your time on hardpack, rocky trails.

It’s unusual to see a MAXXIS ASSEGAI at the rear. However, with its chunky profile and soft MaxxGrip rubber compound, it generates plenty of traction, while the robust Doubledown casing provides excellent puncture protection.

Tuning tip: more robust tires with tougher Doubledown casing at the front

Specific Features


All spec variants of the 2025 SCOR 6080 Z eMTB

Alongside the GX model we tested, there’s a slightly cheaper NX variant, which retails at € 5,499 and relies on the same Bosch Performance Line CX motor and 750 Wh battery.
As the name suffix suggests, the NX model comes equipped with an affordable NX drivetrain, which can’t quite keep up with the slightly higher-quality GX version of the 6080 Z GX in terms of shifting performance. Like the GX variant, the SCOR 6080 Z NX relies on RockShox suspension consisting of a ZEB fork and Super Deluxe air shock, though both in the Select+ version, which are cheaper than the Ultimate versions, but still offer compelling trail performance. SRAM CODE R four-piston brakes with 220/200 mm rotors ensure powerful, reliable deceleration.

The geometry of the 2025 SCOR 6080 Z

The SCOR 6080 Z is available in four sizes, S to XL, and combines a very slack 63° head angle with short 435 mm chainstays, which are consistent across all sizes. The mix of a short rear triangle and long front centre is intended to improve the bike’s agility. A flip chip on the lower shock mount allows you to switch between a low and high setting – we rode the SCOR 6080 Z exclusively in the low setting. Switching to the high setting raises the bottom bracket by 5 mm and steepens the head angle by 0.4°.

The 2025 SCOR 6080 Z on the trail

When making your way to the trailhead, the SCOR 6080 Z places you in an upright, comfortable pedalling position. The plush suspension sucks up bumps and potholes on fire roads, ensuring a high level of comfort even after a long day in the saddle. If you turn onto a technical climb, the plush rear suspension generates plenty of traction, though it’s definitely worth reaching for the climb switch on longer drags. However, this operation requires you either to have very long arms or to get off the bike briefly, because the lockout lever sits very deep in the frame, right above the bottom bracket. The Bosch Performance Line CX motor pushes you hard to the trailhead, putting the SCOR’s 25,9 kg system weight into perspective. Only on very steep climbs, you’ll have to weight the front wheel slightly to keep it tracking.

When you drop into the trail, the SCOR 6080 Z integrates you deeply into its frame, with the weight evenly distributed between the front and rear. If you want to warm up a little on flat, flowing trails, the SCOR quickly gets bored. However, the short rear end is pleasantly flickable, and invites you to play with the trail. Pulling a cheeky manual? No problem! Given its high system weight and crazy amount of travel, the 6080 Z is easy to pull onto the rear wheel, allowing you to pile up style points on your way back down into the valley. Nevertheless, you’ll have to keep in mind that the SCOR isn’t a super light-footed trail bike and thus requires slightly more physical effort to pop off tree stumps and carve through tight berms. As the trail gets rougher, you’ll start noticing the massive 190/180 mm of travel, and this is where the SCOR really comes to life. The plush suspension provides tons of reserves and support, encouraging you to plough through nasty rock gardens and root carpets, without rushing through the travel. At the same time, it generates plenty of traction together with the aggressively profiled tires and soft rubber compound – the SCOR 6080 Z was imperturbable on our local trails! Overall, the Swiss eBruiser is particularly suitable for beginners, making it easy to negotiate even harder trails with its intuitive, predictable handling. When things get steep and sketchy, the high front end inspires tons of confidence, ensuring you don’t go flying over the bars.

Who should take a closer look at the 2025 SCOR 6080 Z?

The SCOR 6080 Z is an excellent choice for rowdy shredders who want to experience that safe DH feeling on their home trails without having to drive to a bike park. It’s also a great option if you’re looking for a robust trail companion, but don’t want to do without the support of a powerful motor. The SCOR 6080 Z only really comes to life on rough trails, meaning that you might be better off looking elsewhere if you’re after a bike for flow trails.

Our conclusions about the 2025 SCOR 6080 Z

The SCOR 6080 Z is a real eMTB bruiser that offers a great substitute for a lift or shuttle truck with its powerful motor. The intuitive handling makes it appealing to both beginners and advanced riders. While it offers little in the way of excitement on flat trails, it comes to life on the rough stuff, where it inspires huge amounts of confidence. The spec is near flawless, with well-considered, high quality components – and the price is pretty fair too!


  • Seamless motor integration
  • Harmonious spec at a fair price
  • Strikes an excellent balance between composure and agility


  • Overkill on flatter trails
  • short seatpost
