Scott Bicycles recently introduced its new Plasma 5 bike, and the industry has been abuzz about it. Today on the Big Island, Scott held a special event including several of its marquis Ironman triathletes, as well as the designer of the bike, Mr. Simon Smart. We interviewed several of these for your viewing pleasure. First up, let's get right down to it - an interview with designer Simon Smart (above). Down below, you'll see an interview with two of Scott's biggest names: Ironman champions Marino Vanhoenacker and Jodie Swallow.

For another detailed look at the bike, check out our gallery from Interbike. Enjoy!
