Scott Genius 60 Mountain Bike

Scott Genius 60 Mountain Bike

The Scott Genius 60 mountain bike looks as sharp as a tack and performs with real panache whether you take it on a brief jaunt in the woods or a full-scale race over multiple stages. Like most of the Genius range, it possesses some great components from renowned firms and is part of a brand that has produced world champions in this field. This should inspire you with confidence when you commit to a purchase.

Scott has fitted the Genius 60 with its own Equaliser shock system on the rear which comes complete with handlebar-mounted levers to provide the rider with a way of switching between its three different adjustable settings in real time without the need for fiddly alterations. Combine this with the RockShox Sektor tech integrated into the fork and you have a mountain bike that rides well and can be adapted for a variety of conditions and riding styles.

The alloy frame is sturdy, strong and above all, light, although if you are going to spend this much you may also want to look at the Scott offerings that have carbon frames and components for the ultimate in featherweight mountain bike tech.
