2017 Scott Genius LT 700 Plus Tuned Bike

I found the lockout mode to be a true lockout—more on that below. La lavorazione del carbonio è, a mio avviso, una delle migliori in circolazione, quindi non mi farei pensieri sulla resistenza. The Schwalbe Nobby Nic 27. If we made an error or the product you received was not as described, we will cover the full amount of shipping. Enduro racers take note, this thing can jump forward like mad and cover ground with rapid pace. I really like the redesigned twin-loc lever on these new bikes.

For the sake of making things 'feel' the same was the goal, and because this is a personal bike, I decided to swap the parts out that I wanted to change. The bike is available with 27. It is a 3-position adjustable rear shock that they refer to as open, traction control, and closed. Redesigned Nude shock with larger air canister. Its suspension features a unique TwinLoc handlebar remote that operates in three modes: open—allowing front and rear to operate at full travel; traction—in which the front stays open but rear travel reduces to 90 millimeters, and compression damping stiffens; and closed—front and rear suspension both lock out.

I am currently ride technical trails with roots and rocks here in New England. A reach of 472mm in large puts it 12mm longer than a and a and 17mm longer than a.

Non è che il problema sia da cercare nelle Nobby Nic? The suspension feels familiar, with 160 millimeters of travel, courtesy of a Fox 36 Float Factory fork and a Nude rear shock — both glimmering with gold Kashima stanchion coating. The messy cockpit is a result of the two additional cables required for the Twinloc system. Every year, Scott carves out a week in the summer to gather media, reps and dealers to show off their latest offerings. Detto ciò io, per i giri alpini che faccio di solito, 12,5 Kg. The tires are also a bit fragile for pinging hard into rocks.

Scott Genius LT 700 Tuned Frameset

Not too much weight on your hands, but definitely enough weight that you feel you can push the front end into corners to really maximize traction. With our Evo-Lap technology we model the frame to optimize the surface area, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observe the results of using different configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. After all these numbers, I was left wondering just how big the weight gain on the big tires would be. I really appreciate the increase to 34mm stanchions up front, and the new Nude shock sports a larger air canister, which promises more plushness. All in one well-designed, trail-bike light package. It offers a sturdy platform that is definitely pedal-efficent.

The TwinLoc lever has undergone many improvements over the years, and this latest one is perfectly ergonomic and the whole bike deals with the two additional cables very neatly. The reliability has been great, and in fact now coming into mid October, creaked today when climbing for the first time. I mean, who wants to buy a 170mm travel bike, and then lock it out and turn it into a hardtail? So that seemingly random width of 2. We also offer ground, 2-day, and overnight options for all orders. New for 2016, Scott has redesigned the lever to sit below the bar, to make use of the space often vacated by the front shifter when a 1x drivetrain is installed. In my experience, the Genius with the 2.

Cosa esattamente non ti ha convinto, per capire dove posso migliorarla? I have done an awful lot of diverse riding on this bike commuting, standard trail riding, downhill laps, and enduro laps in a bike park and it is truly fun to ride in all avenues of riding. Loose, steep climbs are suddenly rideable. A 65° head angle makes it slacker than all of the above too. Scott recently absorbed the well known component manufacturer Syncros, so expect to see more of this good stuff. Certo che con già un perno da 20 mi domando se non si poteva mettere un quick release serio e basta… Certo che fare una bici da 170 e poi scoprire che ha il suo limite nelle discese più impegnative è come dire compro una Ferrari e poi scopro che in pista non va in.

The top-tier 700 Ultimate drops even lower, into the 25lb range, with a claimed weight of 25. Both bikes have carbon front triangles and alloy rear ends. Before we rode them, Scott prepped us with a few presentations. If I wanted to ride a lot of loose soil or steep terrain, The Scott would be a better option. The plus-sized tires provided gobs of traction, rolled along quickly , ripped through the corners, and provided serious confidence—even when descending at warp speed on new-to-me trails. With all of my questions answered before I could even pose them, what more could I ask for?! Those 21%, 8%, and 1% gains were acquired with 24.

For 2016 Scott has revised the TwinLoc lever assembly to sit below the bar in place of a front shifter. Analisi statica La prima caratteristica estetica che risalta guardando la Genius è la pulizia della linea. Specifically, my short stature and muscular build has given me very wide calf muscles, which tend to bang into the chainstays on many plus-size and fat bikes. Sono tutti componenti curati esteticamente e funzionali. The integrated mud guard is a nice touch The suspension curve has been completely overhauled from the regressive Genius of days gone by and you now have an identical curve to the Spark that graced the Dirt 100 this year. There is a great balance of geometry traits for uphill comfort, tricky and steep ascending capabilities and a playful descending character. Perché, mi chiedo allora, portarsi in giro tanta escursione? Problemi riscontrati Il comando del Twinlock è delicato.

But enough numbers for now. Gears, two brakes, a dropper and Twin Loc makes for a lot of wires Components Most striking is the Syncros one-piece bar and stem that is specced on the Tuned and Ultimate models. Similarly, the integrated Syncros fender mates to the Fox 36 fork seamlessly—both of these parts mesh seamlessly into the larger whole of the bike. Feeling One thing Scott is keeping quiet about is how radical the geometry on this bike is. The frame, shock and hardware all come in at 2,249 grams about the same as a four pint milk bottle.
