 Scott's tech video on PB's other Ransom article today is much better, and features steadier, sustained shots of downhill riding. Personally I feel Scott should have just went w/ that video alone.

 Sounds like old command and conquer trailer.

 Now I can wear my Scott helmet with my Scott enduro goggles and my Scott jersey with my Scott shorts, Scott chamois, Scott kneepads, Scott socks and Scott shoes. I'll slowly don my Scott gloves and grasp the Scott grips attached to the Scott handlebar of my Scott bicycle. Before I ride, I'll have fueled well with Scott breakfast cereal eaten from a Scott bowl. Also, this bike needs more cables in the cockpit area.

 well at least it seems you wont need a scott stem!
  • + 24
 Alright Scott calm down.
  • + 12
 You should also rename to Scotty and move to Scottland... Wait a minute...

 silly freerider.. "if their not wearing skinny jeans, a cotton t-shirt and ratty old vans then I ain't watching."

 Do you also own a Specialized because you fit the bill...
  • + 30
 Someone get this guy a fucking gimble
  • + 9
 Or at least tell him to stand still and stop running up the trail...I couldn't even watch the whole thing.
  • + 6
 Yeah! We want more slow mo cable cams, they're so original and refreshing!
  • + 2
 If you just grab your screen and shake it in sync, it isn't too hard to look at.


That is, you're not watching this at work, are you?

 A hardcore enduro race bike filmed on a flat flow trail...hmmmm....
  • + 7
 I never understood why so many of these videos barely ever feature nasty rock gardens and huge drops. Ya know, the kind of stuff these bikes were built for...
  • + 0
 @wpplayer18: Yeah, the EWS is filled with huge drops....
  • + 1
 Yeah... I hate to be that guy... but I'm pretty sure I could've ridden that on my xc hardtail... no 170mm required
  • + 3
 .... again - Scott did the best marketing action by giving privateer Adam his bike...
  • + 21
 well, that video was super confusing
  • + 9
 I have no doubts this bike rips, but was Bend really the best place to showcase a long travel 29-er enduro bike???
  • + 3
 Hands down to these two riders, particularly the one in the front. He is definitely a daredevil. The thru-axle cam lever was put facing to the front horizontally on his bike(noticeable first 20s seconds).

 SEIZURE

 Did those riders find the Blair Witch after they filmed that video?
  • + 1
 Easiest way to get your hands on one off these, just walk into a bank with a gun. Tell everyone to hit the deck, no one leaves until I talk to a negotiator. Then just tell the coppaz that you demand a Ransom. A MF Scott Ransom. easy peezy

 Shouldn't the title be 'Re - introducing the Ransom'? I mean I've had one since sometime in 2010...

What a lame bike it has become as it looks like every other Horst/4 bar bike on the market. At least the original faux bar tried to style itself differently from the rest.

 Next time turn you optical stabilization on... Cant believe what I just saw. Excuse me, im going to puke...
  • + 2
 Agree, glad that is over with....
  • + 3
 Looks like my first time filming a ride...at first I thought it was an advert for wheels..
  • + 12
 Or trees. Or dust.

 I had the previous generation genius LT and it was by far the worst all mountain bike I ever had. Sorry Scott, you lost me there.
  • + 3
 170mm to shred flow trails with no tech? Seems like a little much, no?
  • + 2
 well, if their genius wasn't enough for ENDURO pro racing, this should fit perfectly i think. Look's amazing as well
  • + 1
 youve heard "looks like a session.. but im thinking it looks more like a kona Operator.... or new process? anywho LOOKS LIKE A KONA
  • + 2
 I’ve got a headache after that, unsure if it’s from the music or camera footage from the guy on the cross trainer
  • + 2
 Bad ad choice. Had to turn it off. Bike looks good though
  • + 2
 When did Paul Greengrass start directing edits?
  • + 2
 Looks like it was filmed in Bend.
  • + 2
 Was that Needles and Brendog...that thing looks fast as F*ck!
  • + 2
 Needles and Jameson!
  • + 3
 But don't all bikes look fast(or "fast as F*ck!) when pros are riding them in a video?
  • + 1
 No good for me I can't pedal that fast
  • + 1
 What a bullshit music in this video Frown I need more Yeti cycles vidz
  • + 1
 Looks like Scott axed the voltage.
  • + 2
 scott to be a joke?

 loved my genius, but where are the ISCG05 tabs?
  • + 1
 Marilyn Manson low key rides a Scott

 looks like a genius. Wait, it's a genius and they just found a new name. Impressed ... Eek
  • + 4
 Yup, exactly.

It's really just a longer travel beefed up frame. Whereas the original Ransom was different than the Genius years ago.

My thoughts are they should have called it the Genius LT 2019...but I think for advertisement and PR sake they wanted to bring more excitement and cash in on their old "Ransom" nick name to help sell.

Either way, it's still a BAD ASS bike with a FULL 170mm travel both front and rear and still weighing at a respectable 29lbs (without pedals) is super impressive to say the least.

The Genius platform has already proven to be the best Genius to date so this just ups the ante for those who ride Enduro and park.
