Mountain Biking’s Most Versatile Bike- The ALL NEW Genius

Courtesy of SCOTT Sports

The Genius has been a longstanding staple in our range of mountain bikes for many years now. Having always been the result of a focus on innovation, technology and design, the Genius has evolved over the years in order to be able to tame anything that comes its way. With the latest iteration of our all mountain trail bike, one concept formed the backbone of the development process.

What comes down, must first go up. This has always been the premise of the Genius, it truly is the perfect MTB for every trail it encounters. Steep rooty climbs? No problem. Fast, flowy single track? Yes please. 2000m long descents in the alps? Music to our ears. With the Genius, no matter the trail, no matter the conditions, no matter the rider, it is always the right tool for the job.

With the new Genius, we wanted to make sure that versatility was still achieved. Unlike much of the competition, the new Genius can switch from 27.5″ to 29″ wheels with nothing more than the flip of a chip. No need to change the fork, all you need to do is flip a shock mount chip, change your wheels and off you go. The flip chip allows us to maintain a similar BB height when switching from one wheel size to the other which is key to keeping handling similar for both wheel sizes.

With 27.5″ wheels, you can run either 2.5″, 2.6″ or 2.8″ tires. For the 29er, anywhere from 2.4″-2.6″ is good to go. The Genius has always been a bike for everyone. Now, more so than ever this rings true. One frame, a multitude of options.
