SCOTT bikes have a reputation for pushing the envelope when it comes to versatility. Each mountain bike they’ve released in the past few years not only is able to deal with varying terrains with great efficiency, but they’ve done it with lighter weight and smarter engineering. SCOTT pushes the envelope once again on what a trail bike is capable of with the 2020 SCOTT Genius 950 trail bike, which promises lower weight, greater versatility, and higher overall performance than their outgoing bike.
When it comes to performance enhancements, SCOTT looked to make the bike more versatile. They’ve refined their TwinLoc suspension such that each suspension setting (150mm travel, 100mm travel, lockout) has unique compression dampening and spring curves for the front suspension and rear shock, easily controllable from a small handlebar remote. SCOTT has also included a new flip-chip in the rear swingarm that changes the frame’s geometry depending on use with 27.5” or 29” wheels without swapping out the fork. A new downtube bash guard not only protects the frame from rock strikes but it neatly tucks away a Shimano Di2 battery and allows for easy access to cable routing. Finally, they’ve included an integrated chain guard to prevent chainsuck, and an integrated Syncros Trail Fender to protect the frame and fork seals from mud splatter. These new features enable the Genius to perfectly suit a rider’s needs for what may lie ahead.
The 2020 SCOTT Genius 950 comes spec’d with a full alloy frame and swingarm, in both 29 (2.6” wide tires) and 27.5 (2.8” wide tires). It features a SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, Shimano MT420 brakes, a Syncros 2.0 dropper seatpost, and a Syncros X-30S wheelset. A Fox 34 Float Performance Air fork & a Fox NUDE EVOL rear shock bring 150mm of travel each. SCOTT offers four sizes for everyone, from small to extra large.
