Scott riders Brendan Fairclough (DH) and Nino Schurter (XC) may have inverted their rules at the beginning of the video – pic above ! The reason why of their meeting is quite simple : the new Genius LT (700) is a versatile bike, able to climb well and to down hill.
About the Scott genius LT (from Scott youtube introduction)
The Genius LT 700 is SCOTT’s new Enduro Bike, designed for rough all mountain terrain and tuned for racing. Equipped with the new 27.5″ wheel standard, these bikes have the benefit of better rollover and better traction compared to the old 26″ version. TwinLoc allows for efficient pedaling, and thanks to its 170mm of travel, the LT offers the perfect mix of both 27.5 wheel size geometry and suspension to handle all kinds of technical descents.
