Scott Genius 740 Bike 2016

An aluminum 27.5 rip ship with brains, beauty and muscle

Nice to look at, and fun to drive, the SCOTT Genius 740 employs a super light 6061 custom butted alloy frame that comes decked out with a custom FOX Nude shock and a FOX 32 Float Performance fork with three modes. Now that’s news any suspension dweeb would giddy over, but when you hear that SCOTT’s patented TwinLoc technology allows you to simultaneous control the rear shock travel and fork lockout, it becomes a struggle to bottle up the excitement, since this means that the entirety of the bike’s suspension can be perfectly tuned to the terrain, with but a simple click of the lever.

A shapeshifter of sorts, the Genius 740 employs an adjustable geometry by way of a shock mount chip in the linkage. By simply removing the shock mount chip and flipping it in either mounting position, the bottom bracket height is adjusted by 7mm, which also affects the head tube angle by 0.5 degrees. The costume party doesn’t stop there. SCOTT’S IDS SL dropout system works with an assortment of rear axles, including 142x12mm, 135x12mm and 135x5mm QR rear axle standards. Slather on Shimano’s lightweight XT and reliable Deore groupsets, and there’ll be no stopping this aluminum trail-slayer.

Features:

  • FOX Nude Shock gains maximum performance in every riding situation while remaining lightweight (6.5x1.5" is 260g). Additionally, it features positive air volume micro-adjust with replaceable custom tuned volume reducers.
  • Shock mount chip allows BB height to be adjusted 7mm which also affects the head tube angle by 0.5 degrees.
  • Direct Post Mount eliminates bulky brake hardware for mounting the rear caliper and integrates a direct post mount to the chain stay. This mounting position decreases the load the brakes apply to the swingarm parts and also decreases weight.
  • Tapered head tube increases stiffness, safety, confidence, and control.
  • IDS-SL dropout system works with 142x12mm, 135x12mm and 135x5mm QR rear axle standards.
  • Twin Loc technology now offers simultaneous control of rear shock travel and fork lockout. The open position allows full travel, front and rear. One click switches the rear shock to Traction mode, while the fork remains fully active. Click again and rear shock and fork lock at the same time.
  • Super light 6061 custom butted alloy frame is lightweight, resilient, and compliant.
