The all-new Genius is the ultimate trail bike. Smart suspension, smarter features, and the smartest design lead to an unbelievable trail bike that just can't get enough, no matter whether you're conquering high alpine trails or shredding single track with your buddies. The Genius. Any trail, any time.
All-new Scott Genius Geometry
This 29' wheel size specific frame features 150mm of rear suspension paired with a 160mm fork. The new Genius platform has been tailored to the demands of the modern trail bike.
Scott have utilized an intelligent application of slacker, longer and lower with an even more capable geometry than its predecessor. Scott wanted a Genius that continued to excel going up the hill, while having all the tools necessary for an even better time down to the valley floor. As is the case with many of Scott's mountain bikes, the head angle is adjustable. The bike comes with headset cups that allow you to choose between a 64 or 65 degree head angle.
Integrated Suspension Technology
The new Genius applies Scott's patented Integrated Suspension Technology. Not only does this make for a fantastic looking bike, but it also allows Scott to improve the bike's suspension performance. Primarily, Scott can engineer frames with a lower centre of 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.
What's the difference between Scott Genius 900 and Genius ST?
This year, Scott are introducing the Genius in two different formats: Genius 900 and Genius ST (or 'Super Trail'). Scott's all-new Genius 900 platform takes the tradition of versatile trail bikes and delivers a package that is ideal for any trail, any time, while the ST offers better performance and higher capability on DH sections. While both of these bikes run the same frame layout, they have very unique characters.
At the heart of both layouts is Scott's NUDE shock platform, which has been a preeminent feature of the Genius family for over a decade. You'll find the NUDE 5T shock on the Genius 900, and a brand-new addition to the NUDE Family on the Genius ST - the Float-X NUDE piggyback shock from FOX. With this shock, Scott focused more on downhill performance, while still making sure that you can get up the hill in a hurry. In terms of geometry, the main difference between both platforms is the head angle.
Genius 900 comes stock with a 65-degree head angle, while the Genius ST comes in with a slacker 64-degree head angle. Now of course, with Scott's angle adjust headset that is available on both models, you can play around with this to see what suits you best. Each version has a different approach with regards to spec, ultimately resulting in two different characters on the trail.
