O2Bikers magazine / BEL reviewed the Genius 710. Here is what the editors wrote: "We immediately feel good on the bike: the geometry is perfect as often with SCOTT. The ride is natural and smooth, the bike follows easily the track without any compromise. (…)
Compared to the old Genius, this new version is much more efficient. We can definitely feel the advantages with the 27.5" wheels when rolling over obstacles. The suspension in the Traction mode is harder and allows the bike to be really efficient when climbing without any energy loss. (...)
For bikers who are riding on hard trails or very long rides, the Genius 700 is unbelievable. (...) To conclude, the 2013 Genius is a real success."
