Frame, Forks & shock – The Scott Genius 720 is a mountain bike ready for any trail, any time. The frame features trail optimised geometry and is constructed from Scott’s HMF carbon fibre with an alloy swing arm and specific trail optimised geometry. Rocks and roots from any trail will be easily soaked up by the Fox 34 Float performance front fork and Fox Nude Scott rear shock.
The front and rear shocks are linked to the twin loc lever system enabling shock adjustments on the fly with the push of your thumb.
Drivetrain – The Spark 720 gives a range of gears perfect for off road terrain where simplicity and lightweight efficiency is required thanks to being equipped with a Sram Custom GX1 32 tooth single ring set up. The 11 speed 10-42 tooth cassette delivers an incredible range of gears at the rear of the bike so no climb is too steep.
Brakes – Shimano M615 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm front and rear disc rotors deliver exceptional control and modulation in the most adverse of conditions. As a result of analysis from performance testing, all Scott mountain bikes are fitted with the rear disc brake mounted on the chainstay to reduce brake shudder and increase performance.
Wheels and Tyres – The Syncros TR2.5 wheels on the Genius 720 are high performance wheelset which give you go for it confidence when out on the trail. Front and rear thru axles increase stiffness and security over a standard quick release set up.
The Genius 720 comes fitted with 2.35” wide Schwalbe Nobby Nic tubeless easy tyres which are a true all-rounder, a more than capable tyre in all conditions and serial winner of tyre tests for many years.
Finishing Kit – Syncros components fitted to the Scott Genius complement the rest of the bike perfectly, matching the dynamic look of the bike through their shape and colour schemes.
Syncros like Scott are a hugely iconic brand with decades of experience in the world of mountain bike component manufacturing.
The Fox transfer dropper seatpost allows the rider to own the trail by being able to lower and raise the saddle with the push of a simple to use lever located on the handlebar. Steep downhills are best tackled with a low seatpost, but climbing optimally requires the seatpost to be higher. The Syncros dropper post allows the rider to be in total control, whatever the terrain.FRAME & FORKS

Choosing an appropriate size of bike frame can vary bike to bike/model to model due the design and technical geometry and the cycling activity a bike is designed for. Generally, the ideal guide to selecting a suitable size frame for you is your height.

The Scott story began in the Sun Valley, Idaho by top class ski racer and innovative thinker Ed Scott. He designed and developed the first tapered aluminium ski pole, rendering bamboo and steel poles defunct at the highest level of competition. The company then moved into different markets with motocross and cycling emerging as new targets for the business. Greg Lemond stunned the cycling world when he used the first ever production aero bar, which was made by Scott in his 1989 Tour de France win. Innovation and technology remain at the forefront of Scott’s design ethos in all their products. Moving forward to the present day Scott produce; bikes, components, shoes, helmets, clothing and much more, all with the same meticulous detail to performance as when Ed Scott developed his ski poles in 1958. As a result it is no surprise Scott bikes and riders have been at the forefront of international cycle sport.
Nino Schurter and Jenny Rissveds stormed to victory in the XC MTB discipline at the Rio Olympics. The pair who ride for the Scott Odlo MTB Racing Team were riding the latest evolution of the Scott Spark. In road racing the Scott Foil and Addict have become the bikes to watch whether climbing up mountains in the Alps or blasting along the cobbles in the Arenburg forest. Adam Yates and his Orica–BikeExchange team mates have been producing consistently top results using Scott products. The latest big signings for Scott are the Browlee brothers Jonny and Alister who need no introduction in the world of triathlon. The brothers who have and continue to dominate the discipline will be opening a new chapter with the brand utilising Scott’s attention to detail and no shortcuts approach to creating the best equipment on the planet.
The anatomy of a Full Suspension Mountain Bike.
Wheels and tyres
Wheels need to be very strong and have the ability to stand up to anything the woods or mountain can throw at them. Mountain bike wheels come in three sizes 26”, “27.5” and “29”. Larger wheels roll over trail objects better than smaller wheels and are more stable but are slightly heavier and don’t accelerate as well as a smaller wheel. 29” wheels tend to be favoured by taller riders.
Many wheels and tyres have the ability to be run tubeless which is where the tube is removed and sealant is installed instead. The great benefit of this is that they can then be run at much lower pressures enabling higher levels of grip, more comfort and control without the fear of pinch puncturing. Tyres in mountain biking contain a large volume of air to give good grip in muddy conditions and also to soak up bumps from the trail.
Mountain bikes don’t tend to have gearing for high speeds like road bikes because they are designed for off road but they are blessed with a greater range of low gears for climbing steep off road gradients.
Single chain ring options are now becoming available on mountain bikes which saves weight and creates a simplified system by removing the front derailleur. Bikes with a single front ring are fitted with an extremely wide range cassette so that gearing is not compromised with the loss of the chain ring.
Brake options for modern mountain bikes are either V-brakes or disc brakes, with disc brakes being the most commonplace. V – Brakes offer good stopping power but lose some of their bite in wet and gritty conditions. Disc brakes come in cable and hydraulic forms with hydraulic models leading the way in terms of all round performance.
What are they and what makes them so good at what they do?
Full suspension mountain bikes are great for rough terrain where rear suspension helps to smooth out the trail. Different lengths of “travel” (the maximum vertical movement of the wheel from the top to the bottom of its shock stroke) are found on full suspension bikes, shorter travel bikes are designed primarily for cross country riding which can be especially beneficial when riding on roots and rocks. Bikes with longer travel are designed for more for aggressive terrain where you may encounter drops and jumps. Features include;
Frame and forks
Frames need to be made strong enough to withstand extreme forces and have frame geometry to allow the rider to easily move their position around the bike to negotiate obstacles and climb steep gradients.
Full suspension mountain bike frames give the rider greater control over rough terrain by effectively smoothing out the trail with the damping of the rear shock. On a hardtail mountain bike some trail sections may be too rough to pedal over such as a particularly rooty area or a rock garden, this is where a full suspension bike comes into its own by allowing the rider to keep pedalling, maintaining speed and rhythm. Large boulders and obstacles on the trail can also be negotiated easier with a full suspension bike over a hardtail mountain bike.
Full suspension bikes due to their very nature of conforming to whatever they are riding over can be particularly good for riders who like a smooth ride or who experience back pain from the sometimes harsh feedback of a hardtail.
The front suspension fork soaks up the lumps and bumps of the trail enabling the rider to be in greater control of the bike and resist fatigue.
