Wow Scott have really pulled out all the stops on their longer travel trail bike, the Scott Genius 2018!

With an all new frame designed from the ground up, running Horst link style suspension, more modern geometry, lower and longer than the previous model and running a slacker headangle with a nice steep seat angle to help you keep pedalling efficiently up steep technical climbs.

The frame has 150 mm of travel with Scott’s famous twin lock remote that enables you to transform the bike from a 150mm travel trail weapon to a fully rigid bike with the press of a button!!

Things do get better and one of the standout features is the bikes ability to run either 29 or 27 Plus wheels with the flip of a link in the rear rocker link (and a 2nd set of wheels!) … If you would like a real fun bike with the ability to eat tree roots, fly over technical terrain you may have never ridden before then go for the 27 plus option.. or if you like to ride fast and push the bike to its limits, over jumps, berms etc then go for the stability of the 29 wheel and tire! what ever option you pick, you can always pick up a 2nd set of wheels and transform your bike quickly!

Stock will start to arrive in September 2018 but just as we had with the excellent Scott Spark last for 2017, we expect these new bikes to be in high demand!

We can’t talk about the other 2018 Scott bikes until they are released after Euro bike, but we can guarantee there is lots of more exciting stuff to see from Scott Bikes for the 2018 season!
