Scott Genius LT 10 Mountain Bike

The Scott Genius LT 10 mountain bike is significantly lighter than many of the less costly alternatives. This is due to the prolific use of carbon through its construction with its brakes and frame making the most of this lightweight material to shave off the grams. Despite this minimal calorific content this is still a very capable bike which really needs to be taken on long tours across mountainous regions to get into its stride.

Borrowing the black and green colour motif which seems to be reserved for Scott’s high end cycles this year, the Genius LT 10 brings plenty of enticing tech to the table. With RockShox, Syncros and Avid all contributing components and Scott providing the manufacturing expertise to bring the whole thing together, you get a pleasing package. Customisation allows for bespoke performance, so be prepared to tinker.
