SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus Electric Bike
The SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus is a 27.5″ Plus tyre, full suspension eMTB that offers boundless fun and energy. It is the high spec version of the very popular 730 Plus.
Make no mistake, the E-Genius range of ebikes are revolutionary in their design. This top of the range eMTB features 27.5″ Plus technology (tyre size 2.8″ x 27.5″) for ground breaking performance. The 720 Plus takes a proven approach of using wider rims and less air pressure that puts more tread on the ground (+21%) resulting in greater traction, and more precise steering. Powered by the Bosch Performance CX motor and huge 500Wh battery, the SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus weighs in at around 22.kg. The result is an ebike powerhouse with incredible manoeuvrability, steering and traction.
The exhilarating ride of the SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus is a combination of many unique elements inherent to the bike. The E-Genius Plus has 140mm front suspension travel and 130mm at the rear. Front suspension is provided by the very nice FOX 34 Float Performance Air forks and features 3-position compression damping with remote lockout. On the rear, SCOTT have gone for a FOX NUDE, 3-position with remote lockout. Both work in absolute harmony and cope with even the toughest terrain. Directly below the Bosch-motor control unit on the handlebar is the new TwinLoc remote. By activating the lever, which can be positioned like a left shifter, the entire 3-position suspension system can be regulated in synchronisation: Descend (full travel, open damping), Traction-Control (at the front: full travel but more damping, at the rear 130mm reduced to 90mm travel, more damping and steeper geometry), and Lockout. A Syncros dropper seatpost, routing entirely through the frame is highly responsive and does the job admirably.
The SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus comes equipped with a very slick Sram NX1 11-speed derailleur with Sram trigger shifters. Large 200mm rotors front and rear ensure responsive and immense stopping power. The 11-42T cassette from Sram works in perfect harmony with all elements of the drive train for smooth and decisive gear changes. Maxxis Minion and Rekon 2.8″ Kevlar beaded tyres ensure unrivalled grip and resilience whatever the terrain. Furthermore, DT Swiss Champion spokes with Syncros X40 rims provide a very stable and rock-solid platform.
With further enhancements such as a tapered headtube, internal cable routing and outstanding looks, the SCOTT E-Genius 720 Plus is a great performer with a great pedigree.
