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)
