About Scott Genius bikes

With 150mm of front and rear suspension travel, Genius is Scott's full suspension Mountain Bike designed to tackle more demanding trails and is ideal for challenging trail centre routes. Genius 50 and 40 are cheaper, aluminium framed versions made using 6061 custom butted aluminium alloy. Genius 30 and 20 use HMF carbon fibre whereas the top end Genius 10 also employs Scott's even stiffer HMX carbon fibre. All models in the Genius range boast Scott's unique handlebar mounted Twin Loc suspension lockout system which uses one lever to operate the lockout function on both the front and rear suspension. One click locks out the suspension forks and switches the Equalizer 2 rear shock to traction mode (95mm travel) and two clicks locks out both the front and rear suspension simultaneously. All Genius models also feature full enclosed cable housing to protect cables from grime and dirt and an Isolated Axial Pivot which allows for unlimited seat post adjustment. For a range of full suspension Mountain Bikes with more suspension travel consider Scott's Genius LT range which offers 180mm front and 185mm rear suspension travel.
