WHEN DESIGNING THE ALL NEW GENIUS, SCOTT WANTED TO FINISH WITH A BIKE THAT WAS PERFECT FOR THEIR BACKYARD. THEY WANTED A BIKE THAT COULD CLEAR ANY CLIMB AND TACKLE ANY DESCENT. A BIKE FOR ANY TRAIL, ANY TIME. WHAT THEY GOT IS EXACTLY THAT, AND MUCH MORE. CAPABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, FUN, THE ALL NEW GENIUS IS JUST CALLING FOR THE MOUNTAINS.
About Scott Genius 750 2018
Everything you love about the all NEW Genius, but with a lower price point. The Genius 750 features TwinLoc Suspension Technology to always optimize your ride, a Shimano drivetrain and Syncros components. Grab your bike, and get on the trail.
One Frame, Two Wheel Sizes: The all new Genius frame is capable of fitting both 27.5” and 29” wheels. All you have to do is flip a chip on the shock mount when going from one size to the next and you’re good to go. No need to change the fork unike with many other brands.
Trail Kinematic: Scott’s kinematic suspension curve gives supple small bump sensitivity and therefore exceptional traction characteristics, perfect support in the mid-stroke and a controlled deep stroke for predictable and comfortable bottom outs. Specific pivot placements ensure efficient pedaling that drives the bike forwards like a startled greyhound and neutral braking that strikes a perfect balance between rider comfort and control, chassis stability and rear wheel traction.
Modern Geometry: The Genius has always been a bike designed to go up as well as it went down, and vice a versa. For 2018, they wanted to re-emphasize this point. They designed the Genius specifically in search of balance. Compared to the previous iteration, this one is slacker, has longer reach, shorter chainstays and a steeper seat angle. They really wanted geometry figures that would balance out the long front end for more stable descending. What they’ve ended up with is a bike that climbs like a bat out of hell and gets you down the mountain faster than you can say “dropping!” After years of testing different options, these numbers are a result of taking everything they want out of a bike for the trails they ride, and building it.
Twinloc Suspension System: SCOTT TwinLoc Suspension was developed as a system with the goal of taming any trail, any time. Connecting fork, their patented NUDE shock platform and frame via TwinLoc allows htem to work with suspension characteristics that allow you to adapt to multiple trail settings, all at the flick of a switch. Whereas most systems only increase low-speed compression in an effort to gain pedaling efficiency, TwinLoc allows them to not only change compression damping, but
also to change the spring curve dynamically altering the geometry of the bike. With TwinLoc, have one bike that is a climbing bike, a descending bike, and a perfect bike for everything in between, all at once.
