Pinkbike: We review the capabilities of Scott's incredibly versatile Scott Genius LT 27.5. (...)Their popular big travel trail bike, the Genius LT, is the longest travel 27.5" option from Scott and its redesigned platform is claimed to make it a quiver-killing bike that can do it all. (...)The clean looking Genius LT, with its full carbon HMX frame and red and orange colour matched components, is definitely an eye catcher out on the trail. The frame itself is constructed using 200 individual pieces, a molding process that differs from traditional carbon monocoque frames. This technique allows Scott to build a more consistent frame even while utilizing the mass production process (...)Probably one of the LT's best attributes is its readiness to ascend, and whether it's short punchy climbs or hour-long dirt road slogs, the Genius makes it happen, climbing remarkably well with some help from the bike's remote actuated FOX CTD system. (...)
Freeride GER: The fun factor on the new LT is extremely high. The suspension works in all race and trail situations harmoniously, especially in the open mode. It`s very stable and offers great handling thanks to the ultra-light weight. A perfect score: 10 out of 10!"
