Scott E-Genius 730 2018

Description

 

A stunning full suspension Scott e-bike with the Bosch system

Price now reduced to £3299 – to make way for 2019 bikes coming soon

The e-genius is Scott’s all purpose range of MTBs. It has great full suspension, plus size tryes and Sram groupset, – and so will handle all terrains.

If you are looking for a full suspension mountain bike then unless you are a crazy downhill MTBer and you want 160 mm of travel in your forks, then you really don’t need to look any further. This is an excellently specced bike with the Bosh motor at a sensible price.

Bosch Drive System

This bike comes with the acclaimed and established Bosch motor – in this case the Performance Line CX. We are great fans of the Bosch system and in a honesty are a bit disappointed that Scott have decided to go with the Shimano motor on a number of their bikes this year – although we can understand that they do not want all their eggs in one basket. Bosch have been developing their motor for close to 10 years now and they are several generations into this exciting technolgy. They have a very responsive and importantly, reliable motor. They have put a lot of money into this sector and their support is second to none.

The motor is combined with the largest battery that Bosch do – the 500 watt hour. This will give you a range of up to 100 miles but of course is dependent on the level of assistance selected.

Plus Sized Tyres

All of Scott’s electric mountain bikes now come fitted with the increasingly popular plus size tyres. The standard size for mounting bikes is a width of about 2.3 inches. Plus size tyres are 2.8 inches wide. This gives you more traction, comfort and control. The additional rolling resistance is minimal ( about 1%) compared to 30% more traction.

Suspension

The suspension on the bikes is Rock Shox front forks with 140 mm of travel combined with X-Fusion NUDE rear shock. To put this into perspective on the top of the range model, the e-genius 700 tuned (£6799) the travel is 150 mm of travel – and extra 10 mm. Unless you are a real expert your are going to be hard pushed to notice the marginal difference.

Gears

The gears are SRAM and are 11 speed – more than enough and with a large 42 toothed first gear.

Brakes

Finally, the brakes are Shimano deore hydraulic disc with rotors of 203 mm (incidentally the same size as the rotors on the 700 tuned.
