2016 Scott Genius 720 Bike

Product Description

General Information

The 900/700 HMF carbon-fiber Scott Genius takes all of the innovation found in the HMX Genius and applies a slightly lower-grade HMF carbon-fiber to the task. Same performance, with a big cost savings, a solid improvement in frame durability, and a small increase in weight. The 29er version possesses 130mm of front-and-rear travel, while the 27.5 version has 150mm. The idea is this bike can do anything from racing to trail to enduro. The main thing to decide between is if you want the bike to slightly favor agility and acceleration or momentum and rollover. If the former, pull for the 27.5”, if the latter, the 29er.

The Genius’ smarts has to do with how the design gives you a bike that can ride like a long-travel cross-country bike, but still handle big hits and rough stuff. 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.

And when you want to go further, you’ve got the dropper post. The cable runs internally and hooks up to a lever on the right side of the bars. Your fingers are your minions as they fine-tune the ride as you’re pedaling. No need to stop until you’re back home.

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 HMF Carbon has the trail mastered. You supply the movement and reap the grins.
