Can't decide between 27.5" or 29", Don't sweat, SCOTT have engineered the Genius to be able to run either wheel size. Unlike other brands, the fork does not need to be changed when switching wheel size. It's a simple five minute job to flip the geometry chip to ensure the optimum bottom bracket height and head angle for either 27.5" or 29". The Genius can be ordered in the 700 series, with 27.5" wheels or in the 900 series with 29" wheels - the choice is yours!
Regarding tyre size, with 27.5" wheels you can run 2.5", 2.6" or 2.8" tyres. With 29" wheels, you can run anything from 2.4" to 2.6" with no issues.
Unsurprisingly, the new Genius also features SCOTT's patented Twinloc technology. This system allows the rider to control the level of compression damping and travel for both the fork and shock simultaneously - all with one lever on the handlebar.Three modes are available:
- Descend: All 150mm travel available with a plush and active feel.
- Traction Control: This mode closes off one of the air chambers to reduce the travel to 110mm and stiffen the air spring. The bike rides higher in its travel and becomes more responsive, perfect for technical climbs and less technical, flowing trails.
- Lockout: This mode locks the suspension and virtually transforms the bike into a fully rigid setup, perfect for fire roads are road transitions.
