The Genius has always been Scott’s favourite bike. Smart suspension, smarter features, and the smartest design lead to an unbelievable trail bike that just can’t get enough. The All-New Genius, any trail, any time.
The new Genius applies our patented Integrated Suspension Technology. Not only does this make for a fantastic looking bike, but it also allows us to
improve the bikes suspension performance. Primarily, we can engineer frames with a lower center gravity, resulting in better handling, and a more
stable, confidence inspiring ride for the end user. Additionally, the frame’s construction is stiffer around the BB, which reduces unnecessary movements
laterally to the direction of the shock’s travel. It goes without saying that the shock is also protected from debris and the elements, two of the
main enemies when it comes to shock performance.
Setting sag and checking travel use is easier than ever before with the new Genius. An external indicator on the link allows the end user to easily set
sag and to identify how much travel they’re using.
The Genius features a Hixon Cockpit from Syncros, which has undergone a redesign. Integrating the cables presents a number of unique problems and the Hixon was designed in part to address this. Syncros’s designers worked on the shape to allow the cables to flow under the bar and around the sides of the stem before disappearing into the headset with integrated plastic parts to keep it clean and efficient. This avoids bends or kinks in the cables and provides a minimalist front end. All our bars and stems feature multiple options for computer, light and camera mounts both on top or under the bar.
With the all new Genius, accessing our patented integrated shock is easier than ever. Just push the botton, pop off the cover, and access is yours. From here, adjusting rebound, air pressure, etc. is a mere button push away.
When you're done, just pop the cover back on until you hear a "click" and off you go.
Shocks with NUDE Technology have been intgral to SCOTT Full suspension bikes for nearly two decades. Working closely with our suspension partners, we continue to improve upon this technology so that whether you're racing World Cup's at the highest level or out for a big day in the mountains, you'll always have the best support on offer.
