Ready for some serious fun – Now at a great Price!
We have taken £1000 off our remaining bike – a medium – to make way for 2019 bikes that will be coming soon.
The most exciting and best equipped bike we have ever had!
The Scott e-genius 700 tuned is the top of the range all terrain mountain bike from the Scott stable. It has everything that you could want – and more – including the powerful Shimano STEPS 8000 motor, a 500 watt hour integrated battery, kashima coated fox forks and rear shock with 150 mm of travel and the integrated Di2 Shimano electronic 11 speed gears.
The assist part
The motor in this bike is the new Shimano steps 8000. This came to the market in 2017 and has been very well received. Scott have committed to Shimano in a big way this year with most of their premium end bikes featuring this system. The motor has a very natural feel to it and responds to your needs with no sudden thrusting of power, while maintaining support at a consistent level all the way up your climb. There are 3 levels of assistance to choose from : Eco, Normal and Boost with Boost giving up to 70 Newton Metres of torque which translates to over 300% assistance – that’s 300% added to your efforts.
The battery has a capacity of 500 watt hours – this will give you a range, depending on the level of assistance and the terrain of between 30 and 70 miles. Using the bike in varying modes and on a mixed terrain you should be able to get 50 miles of assisted riding.
The battery is neatly integrated into the frame and the Scott engineering department have worked hard to ensure that the aesthetics and aero dynamics of the non electric version are maintained. They have developed their own engine covers to provide a great finish and protection for both the battery and the motor so as to cope with all conditions.
The Bike bits
Scott has a great sporting heritage and the genius range of bikes are for hard use on the trails. Because of that they will deal with anything you care to throw at them. The forks are top of the range FOX 36 float with 150 mm of travel and are kashima coated. The rear shock is also kashima finished with up to 150 mm of travel and is the Fox Nude Evolution shock.
The brakes Shimano Zee brakes with 4 ceramic pistons that are optimised for heat distribution and maximum stopping power. These are combined with very large 203 mm again ensuring maximum heat displacement.
The groupset is Shimano XT Di2 – electronic gear shifting for a smooth change every time. This means that the motor and gears are seamlessly integrated resulting in optimum power and ratios. The cassette features a massive 46 teeth 1st gear that will take you up the steepest of inclines.
Adjust your seats. The dropper seatpost is the Fox transfer with remote control from the handlebars. It has 100mm of travel and is Kashima coated. Kashima coating is used on some motorbikes but on bike forks and seatposts is unique to Fox. The process of kashima coating anodizes the metal and ensures that there are no imperfections in the service. This gives an almost frictionless finish.
The wheel size is 27.5 inch, which we think is the ideal size for the trails and the tyres are plus size. At 2.8 inches wide (normal mtb tyres are about 2.3 inches) they have the advantage of additional traction and control but with only a very small amount (1%) of additional rolling resistance. The rims are tubeless ready – so if you prefer the bike to be without tubes please ask and we will do this for you.
This bike has it all and is the ultimate trail bike. Do come to the shop and see it for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
