2016 Scott Genius LT 700 Tuned Frameset

Product Description

General Information

170mm of front and rear travel is why this Genius 700 HMX from Scott has the LT designation. Long Travel. And like any good bike with this kind of squish, it rides like an all mountain champ. This in part due to Scott’s mastery of geometry around the 27.5” wheels it chooses because they roll better than 26” and give you greater agility than 29ers. In the constant parsing and micro-divisions that go on within mountain biking, the Genius LT has all the downhill chops you need, but where it creates the most daylight between itself and the pack is in it’s acceleration and climbing prowess.

Much of this is thanks to Scott’s long history with carbon-fiber. They’ve been building with the material for almost twenty years and have been able to push the envelope farther than most manufacturers. Frame, fork, and shock weigh in at 2450g, thanks in no small part to Scott’s liberal use of their super-light HMX carbon fiber soup. Even at this light weight, the frame is stiff and the suspension has little lateral slop thanks to smartly-placed pivot points, like just above the BB92 bottom bracket-more good design. The result is great pedaling efficiency.

The bike is also a joy to pedal because of the combination of steep seat angle, short chainstays, and slack head angle. A rear wheel that feels underneath rather than behind has better traction and feels more responsive to the application of power. Scott allows you to further tune the geometry thanks to a reversible chip that is built into the top of the suspension linkage. There’s a “low” and “high position,” which changes the bottom bracket height, the effective chainstay length, and the seat and head angles. Those who like more of a cross-country ride will probably prefer the low, and those who like more aggro riding will probably like the high, but you can change the setting in about a minute to decide for yourself, even when just stopping for a moment on the trail.

Control over the extreme rough stuff is why you came looking at this bike. And with the long-travel fork and shock, you can get in pretty deep over your head and still be in control. This is thanks to Scott’s partnership with Fox, which supplies front and rear suspension elements for the complete bikes, and the shock for the frames. The rear has Fox’s Nude DPS with EVOL sleeve for greater adjustability. Even with all the tuning in the shock, trail conditions change, and with that in mind, Scott supplies their TwinLoc remote with the Genius LT. It’s a three-position remote controlling both front and rear suspension, letting you toggle between open, traction control, and firm while you ride.

Enduro bike riders have gravitated toward single-ring setups as they’ve become more accessible. The Genius LT can handle both 1x and double-ring setups with ease-and internal cable routing. For the single-ring setups, Scott includes their integrated chain guide, the lightest on the market, which rides on the swingarm.

Another common accessory for the all mountain crowd is a dropper post. Here, too, Scott includes internal routing in the bare frame, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth with complete bikes. Likewise, complete bikes come with 203mm rotors in front and 180mm in the rear.

Keeping true to their roots, and believing that giving the rider choice is important, the bike comes with Scott’s IDS-SL dropouts, allowing you to swap between 142x12, 135x12, and quick-release rear wheels.

The Scott Genius LT 700 HMX frees the enduro bike to play not only with gravity but against it.
