The new Scott Genius dropped with a new, redesigned frame, inspired by Scott’s Spark. Now the Genius series is loaded up with buckets of fun for enthusiastic Trail riders, as well as Enduro crusaders!

  • New Wheels!

The new Scott Genius range comes fully kitted for 29 inch and 27.5+ inch. Allowing you to switch between the wheel sizes using one frame. This is made possible by Scott’s flip chip, that keeps the BB height roughly the same between the two wheel sizes. The tyre clearance is just as versatile, making provision for 2.5” – 2.8” fat tyres on a 650b wheelset, and 2.4” – 2.6” fat tyres on a 29er.

 

  • TwinLoc – Scott

Scott highlight their TwinLoc technology on the Genius, as one of the technologies that gives the Genius its ready, adventurous character. Your mountain biking is made simple, as TwinLoc gives you the freedom to adjust both your shocks (front & rear) simultaneously. Namely, choosing between Descend, Traction and Lockout. Descend gives you 150mm of plush, open, travel, while Traction limits your travel to 110mm, just so that your wheels have maximum grip on climbs or flat terrain.

 

  • New Suspension

Scott’s four link suspension design, gives way to new suspension characteristics. Such as extreme sensitivity to small bumps, while letting no pedal stroke go to waste with maximum efficiency. It also encourages good traction control on those 650b+ or 29 inch wheels.

 

  • Syncros Hixon

Its 200 grams of solid carbon and it looks awesome with its one-piece design. This new design for a handle bar and stem jammed into one, will get a new engineering trend going!

 

  • Syncros Trail Fender

Any adventurous bike should have one of these, so it’s great that Scott integrated this 2-bolt, direct, fender to shock mount. Plus, its boasting with Scott’s patented Bottom-out Clearance design. Brilliant!
