2016 Scott Genius 940 Bike

Product Description

General Information

Aluminum, specifically custom-butted and shaped 6061, takes you to great heights as the frame tubing of choice in Scott’s 900/700 Alloy Genius. There’s so much to love about aluminum, from its light weight, to its strength and tuned ride, to its price. And setting up the tubes to resemble the carbon-fiber Genius’, is nothing short of, well, brilliant.

The Genius is a trail bike that has the verve of a cross-country ride. And you can choose how the bike hews to one side of the other by picking the hoops. With the 27.5” wheels, you get 150mm of travel and greater agility and acceleration. With the 29er wheels, you get 130mm of travel, better rollover and momentum.

Regardless of the wheel size, the design is overflowing with smarts. First the geometry mates an aggressive seat angle to short-ish chainstays and a slack head angle. The geometry can be tuned via the adjustable chip at the top of the suspension linkage. Raise or lower the bottom bracket by 7mm and move the head angle forward or back by .5 degrees. The wide BB92 bottom bracket allows for a massive carbon juncture, which contributes to lateral stiffness in two ways. First, the downtube can be super-wide, limiting flex there. Second, the chainstay pivot is also as wide as possible, limiting flex and wear there. Up front, the tapered 1 1/8” to 1 1/2” head tube provides lateral stiffness to limit the fork tracking itself.

In terms of control and manners, Scott mounts a TwinLoc lever to the bike, and pairs it with both the fork and the shock. The shock itself is a collaboration between Scott and Fox. The Nude DPS shock was designed to work with Scott suspension. Besides the custom valving, the TwinLoc activates a three position damper which is: descend, traction-control, and lockout (or open, controlled, climbing). The fork is a Fox 34 Float, which, along with the FIT4 damper, also offers three on-the-fly adjusting modes. With the smart tuning and on-the-fly adjustments, the bike is ready to tackle anything you can point the bike over.

The frame and bike come setup for thru-axles and 180mm rotors, though in both cases, thanks to design flexibility, like Scott’s IDS-SL interchangeable dropouts, you can switch from the standard 142x12mm to 135 thru-axles, or even quick-releases.

The Scott Genius 900/700 Alloy is a highly-refined trail ride with a price tag that even a beginner will recognize as a steal.
