2016 Scott Genius LT 720 Bike

Product Description

General Information

Aluminum, when put in the right hands, is an absolutely amazing frame material at a super price. Here, with the Genius LT 700 Alloy, Scott hydroforms custom-butted 6061 aluminum tubes to create a ride that mimics carbon, kicks butt on durability, and does so at a fraction of the price. Giving you the same easy-rolling, agile 27.5” wheels, and an all-mountain ride which climbs as well as it descends.

To give you an idea of how advanced these aluminum tubes are, formed into a frame, with a rear shock included, the weight penalty is a mere 110g over Scott’s HMF carbon Genius LT. And it’s more durable, too. So this bike is perfect for when you’re starting on a tight budget and perfect when you’re rough on equipment.

Tubing aside, the ride should be nearly identical to the Genius LT in either HMX or HMF carbon. It’s because the features are the same, down to the BB92 bottom bracket, the travel is the same, and the geometry is the same. You can tune the geometry to a “low” or “high” position, just by flipping a chip at the top of the suspension linkage.

The suspension is provided by Fox, but it’s really more than just slapping on a fork and a shock. Scott has been working with Fox for years to tune the shocks to their bikes, and a result of this long-running collaboration are custom shocks and forks, designed for just this bike and the ride Scott is looking for. The 36mm stanchions in front are tough enough to handle the 170mm of travel, and the rear shock is tuned perfectly for the position it’s in. Further, Scott equips the bike with their own TwinLoc remote, which allows you to switch between three different suspension profiles on the fly: open, traction control, firm.

And the geometry is both designed for stability on screaming technical descents an agility for grinding climbs. The combination of steep seat angle, short chainstays, and slack head angle, set you up to balance your needs perfectly. A rear wheel that feels underneath rather than behind has better traction and feels more responsive to the application of power.

Enduro calls for flexible setups. Here, Scott provides a double-ring up front for gearing choices, 203mm/180mm rotors for braking power in all conditions, and a dropper post to tune your weight relative to your ride.

The Scott Genius LT 700 Alloy shows how far entry-level can take you.
