For a trail bike to rule them all, Scott brings you their new Genius models: the 900 and 700. Designed to handle, as they put it, “Any Trail, Anytime,” this pair of beasts are full-suspension chassis bikes with slight differences between the two depending on what you’re after.
The 900 has 130mm of travel and all the benefits of a 29″ wheel whilst avoiding any negative effects that occur when forcing too much travel onto the wheel size. The 700, on the other hand, takes advantage of a completely different and new wheel standard that is slightly smaller at 27.5” and allows for a larger travel range of 150mm.
Despite the difference in wheel sizes, both versions of the Genius are almost identical geometrically, resulting in equally improved handling and stability.
The Genius had evolved significantly over the last decade and the latest offering is genuinely quite possibly one of the best trail bikes available. True to their name, it’s a stroke of genius.
