This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

Scott Genius 740 bike delivers a highly tuneable platform with 27.5 in. (650b) wheels, which offer Goldilocks-like "just right" performance that hits a sweet spot between 29er and 26 in. wheels.

  • Hydroformed and butted 6061 aluminum frame is lightweight and sturdy; geometry has been fine-tuned to maximize suspension performance
  • TwinLoc system provides remote, bar-top control of suspension travel and lockout, letting you customize performance on the fly
  • 3 TwinLoc settings supply full travel front and rear, Ride mode (platform damping that helps eliminate bob), and lockout for both front and rear
  • Fox 34 Float 650b Evolution CTD Air suspension fork has 150mm of air-sprung travel that can be simply adjusted with the 3-mode setting adjustment (Climb, Trail, Descend)
  • Scott DT M3 rear shock has a progressive damping curve, excellent sensitivity and 3 travel modes (full, platform damping and lockout) as well as rebound adjustment
  • Rear shock linkage chip lets you adjust head tube angle by 0.4° to meet your geometry preferences; oversize bearings help keep suspension stiff and responsive
  • Tapered head tube and 15mm front quick-release axle stiffen up the front end for enhanced strength and handling precision
  • Interchangeable dropout system (IDS-SL) lets you switch between rear axle standards (142x12mm, 135x12mm and 135x10mm QR) to further tune and enhance performance
  • 3x10 Shimano drivetrain features XT rear derailleur along with Deore SL shifters and SLX front derailleur for quick, efficient and precise performance
  • Shimano BR-M596 hydraulic disc brakes use a 180mm rotor up front and a 160mm rotor in back to facilitate responsive, progressive braking
  • 27.5 in. (650b) wheels offer similar rolling characteristics and increased traction of 29ers, but with faster acceleration and minimal travel limitations
  • Schwalbe Nobby Nic Performance folding tires feature lightweight Kevlar® beads and dual compound composition for solid traction and handling
  • Also included is a chainblocker plate helps protect the frame from dropped chains; can be modified to run ISCG with adaptor (adaptor not included) for 1x or 2x cranks
  • Please note: the Scott Genius 740 full-suspension mountain bike comes with Shimano PD-M505 clipless pedals (cleats included)
  • Specs are subject to change

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
