Scott Genius 50 Bike
Scott Genius 40 Bike
Reviews include Singletracks from July 2015 (covering the 930 model) and
describing the versatility, while at the cross-country trail end of the bike ranges, it can tackle all sorts of terrain and can also be modified easily.
It also comments on the suspension: has excellent design accompanied by TwinLoc remote to control both front and rear shocks at the same time, plus the
upgrades could be made to the tyres and the forks to give more travel and a bit more grip.
There is a review from Bike Radar from August 2015 (covering the 750 model)
which firstly emphasises the ride, which is well balanced overall but quite tricky to adjust to cope with heavier terrain.
Also mentioned in this review is the stability: in that the bike is quite stable at speed on relatively smooth trails and gives good confidence on descents, combined with the
value for money which is only average, as there are a lot of other bikes with somewhat better specifications at the same sort of price.
If you're interested in ratings, this review gives the bike a 3.0/5.
International MTB Magazine from 2015 (covers the 950 model) and
comments on the value, characterised by a very balanced group of components which all did their job well.
Also the review mentions the versatility: as it has been designed for all day use on varying terrain for the entry level mountain-biker and in addition, the
stability holding its momentum and control well, although some suspension adjustments are advisable for best performance.
Scott Genius LT
Freehub Magazine from 2014
comments on the versatility, as this bike can be used successfully as an all-mountain, trail or enduro machine.
Also the review mentions the learning curve: is pretty gentle with easy adjustments that can be made on the trail and in addition, the
components that all match each other in quality and performance, so there is no obvious weakness and plenty of strengths.
Overall this reviewer gives the bike a 5.0/5 rating.
Mountain Bike Rider has a review from June 2015 (covering the 710 model) and
detailing the travel, is designed to cope with very rough terrain and it does that really well.
There are also good comments for the Scott Genius LT, about the geometry: which also gives stability on the steepest unpreditable gradients and the
weight which for the price was somewhat disappointing in using quite a bit of energy to get the bike up to speed.
Scott Genius Tuned
Mountain Bike Rider has a review from 2016 (covering the 700 Plus model) and
detailing the traction, which is exceptional especially in damp slippery trail conditions.
There are also good comments for the Scott Genius Tuned, about the easy rolling: despite having larger than normal tyres and the
fun ride on account of its manoeuvrablity.
Reviews include Bike Radar from Jan 2016 (covering the 700 Plus model) and
describing the climbing traction, that is extremely high.
It also comments on the adaptable suspension: being easy to change between suspension modes, plus the
confident ride as the bike is very surefooted over all sorts of difficult terrain.
This site rates this bike at 4.0/5.
