Nice to see you've finally ditched the 'road bike' geometry... but the seat tube is still way too high.
And as ever there is far too much crap on the bars, that no body needs.
I would be genuinely interested, because the Genius is a stunning looking bike however there are too many simple flaws.

: I thought the same thing about the cables until I tried one for 2 weeks this summer. It felt awkward at first since it also had a dropper and it was 2x10 but once I got the hang of it I used it all the time. On my personal bike I didn't have any lockouts or cared about it since by bike was set up so well, but after using it, I'm hooked.

: I used to have an old Ransom a few years ago (raced the Mega' on it). The bike was transformed after i got rid of the clutter.
Have a look at Faircloughs personal setup (not the ones in promo vids) and you'll notice his preference is without it... intact read any of the independent reviews of the previous Gambler (check Dirt, Vital etc) and they also suggest the removal of bar clutter too

Pffft Brendan Fairclough would rip pila on a Kmart bike
(Jul 6, 2017 at 4:12)
Brandog rips, the bike didn't break. Haven't taken much more away from that video really. I'll second JohnR46.

Yes does look close too perfect bike, but will they make a cheaper one that does not have all cables on handlebars the perfect bike for non racers

I'm really interested in where they set the price for the lower end models. Since I'm not uber rich, the 740 model looks nice and I'd like to see how it stacks up against, say a Canyon Spectral CF 8.0 EX, Intense Recluse foundation build, or the lower end SC Hightower model. This bike is definitely one I'll consider.

Great ad, although I feel slightly traumatised by the music.
(Jul 6, 2017 at 9:46)
You had me until the music started. I would have preferred it without the shitty EDM.

Often I wonder if he's got that "Matrix vision" where everything to us seems normal speed but he's seeing it all in slomo
(Jul 6, 2017 at 4:28)
Pila - Aosta = Awesome, this makes me miss it bad.

"Does the new Genius rip"
You could put Brendog on my great-grandmother's scooter and he'd rip
(Jul 6, 2017 at 5:00)
that place looks awesome !
(Jul 6, 2017 at 9:15)
It's honestly so much better than this video makes out. So much better
(Jul 9, 2017 at 13:35)
: Is that not always the case?
(Jul 6, 2017 at 4:33)
Crumbs that guy's quick!
(Jul 6, 2017 at 7:07)
that dude could rip on a scooty puff puff junior
(Jul 6, 2017 at 5:22)
I bet he would be as fast on a hardtail on this track.
I would like to see (or test) how the new Genius performs on a real trail - e.g. Tschili in Latsch or 422b on Lake Garda.
With a different color scheme and a lower price tag, I could like this bike - at least more than a HT LT.
(Jul 6, 2017 at 8:55)
Wtf? Have you ridden Pila - Aosta?
It's like 8 miles of dh, it may look smooth but it's not maintained and all blown out / rough.
Ask most anyone that's ridden it, the tracks a beast.
I rode it on a full dh bike and never wanted less.
(Jul 6, 2017 at 13:20)
I ride that track every week, it's like 10 minutes from my house. It's never too rough but in summer there's sooo much dust and the braking bumps make it quite hard on the hands and arms. Btw I ride a trail bike and it's fine
(Jul 6, 2017 at 14:30)
@madbob9: I'm pretty jealous of you right now - I think what got me about the track was its length, I rode it at the end of a full summer season and the braking bumps and dust over that length of track wore me out!
The ISX line up on the 'DH' track is nasty too!
(Jul 6, 2017 at 12:36)
maybe im just being stupid but when i go onto the scott site (global) i still see the old genius and genius LT
(Jul 6, 2017 at 11:07)
Straight. Killing. It.
(Jul 6, 2017 at 8:27)
Does it drift? YES!
(Jul 6, 2017 at 12:55)
Does this bike come with a 90:10 rear brake bias as standard?
(Jul 6, 2017 at 6:16)
Not good enough for a top 10 finish! Just kidding, that was SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Jul 6, 2017 at 9:07)
Dear Scott. Please repost video without terrible club music. Thx 3
(Jul 6, 2017 at 12:05)
not with that shit music it doesn't
(Jul 7, 2017 at 4:27)
(Jul 6, 2017 at 5:20)
If i had the money, i would love to own one. But, sorry Scott i do not possess a CH Bank Account.
