    We started this review by saying that Scott Genius 10 gains some serious trailside attention and this really is expected considering many of the bike’s unique characteristics. The carbon fiber frame is extremely trick in person and that Scott Branded shock definitely sports a look all its own. To put it simply, the Genius looks expensive and (when you stop to consider that there is a $13,000 version of this bike available)- it is! Continue reading →

    Strengths:    Very light AM bike. Adaptive to all kinds of terrain due to its variable shock and fork travel. Uphill and downhill very good. Twinlock system works very good. The Equalizer shock really follows every surface at any speed.

    Weaknesses:    Cheap and heavy wheels. XT parts should not be on a bike in this price category. Shock difficult to fine tune. I hate white parts on a bike. No pedals.

    Bottom Line:   
    Most bikes in the bike review section are rated very positive, because of the proud owners, and that includes me. It was my dreambike, and still is. This is the best bike I have ever driven, specifically after the upgrades.

    The reason I did not give a 5 rating is because of the XT cheaper parts that were initially on the bike.

    Help on sizing Scott Genius 10

    Hello, I've recently got a good deal on my dream bike (frame actually), which is Scott Genius 10 (regular, not LT) from 2012. I've checked some measurements, and opted for L size. Since I currently don't have other components, I'm just looking at the frame, hoping that I've chosen the correct one. ... Read More »

    2012 Genius 10 initial thoughts.....

    Some great deals to be had on this bike ! After riding one today, and after riding the Spark RC (both 26ers) 29ers are not my gig. It seems strange to me how the new Genius could possibly do anything better than the 2012 design with the Equalizer 2 Shock and the older frame design if its anything si ... Read More »
