SCOTT E-Genius 710 Electric Mountain Bike
The SCOTT E-Genius 710 for 2018 is a truly formidable performer, powered by Shimano’s E8000 eMTB motor.
Built to the highest standards, the E-Genius 710 boasts a plethora of features and high end components. The result is an e-bike powerhouse with incredible power, maneuverability, steering and traction. The exhilarating ride of the 710 is a combination of many unique elements inherent to the bike. Most noticeable is its clean and sleek lines. The fully integrated 500Wh Shimano battery is easily removed and chargeable both on and off the bike. Couple that with the new Shimano E8000 eMTB specific motor, and the result is a hungry beast waiting to be unleashed. The E-Genius 710 powers effortlessly through any terrain, and handles like a dream. It’s solid, reliable and agile.
Beautifully appointed, the E-Genius 710 utilises high performance FOX 34 Float Performance Elite Air forks with a lengthy 150mm travel. They feature 3-position compression damping with remote lockout, and can be tailored to any environment. Similarly on the rear, SCOTT have gone for a top of the range FOX. A Nude Trunnion, 3-position with remote lockout. Sited on the handlebar is the TwinLoc remote. SCOTT’s TwinLoc Remote Technology allows 3 modes of operation, front and rear, in syncronisation. Activation is via a simple lever, which can be positioned like a left shifter. The three modes are: (1) Descend (full travel, open damping), (2) Traction-Control (at the front: full travel but more damping, at the rear 150mm reduced to 100mm travel, more damping and steeper geometry), and (3) Lockout. A very nice FOX Transfer Dropper dropper seat-post, routing entirely through the frame responds quickly and effectively.
Gearing on the E-Genius 710 is via a Shimano XT RD-M8000 SGS DM Shadow Plus 11-speed with a large Shimano XT 11-46T cassette. Hill climbs and descents have never been such fun! Shimano XT Rapidfire Plus shifters ensure solid and effective shifting that is both precise and responsive. Thanks to a great set of Kevlar beaded Maxxis Minion Plus sized tyres front and rear, the E-Genius 710 combines excellent adhesion with great agility.
The NEW lightweight alloy frame on the E-Genius 710 comprises a tapered head-tube, internal cable routing and enviable contours. It’s a truly great performer.
