SCOTT E-Genius 730 Electric Mountain Bike
The new 2018 SCOTT E-Genius 730 is a 27.5″ Plus tyre, full suspension eMTB that offers boundless fun and energy.
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. It has great traction, and more precise steering. Powered by the Bosch Performance CX motor and huge 500Wh battery, the SCOTT E-Genius 730 weighs in at only 22.8kg. The result is an e-bike powerhouse with incredible maneuverability, steering and power.
The exhilarating ride of the SCOTT E-Genius 730 is a combination of many unique elements inherent to the bike. The E-Genius has 140mm front suspension travel and 130mm at the rear. Front suspension is provided by the highly acclaimed Rock Shox Recon RL Solo Air and features 3-position compression damping with remote lockout. It’s tapered steerer and 15mm Boost axle ensure a firm, tough and reliable response. On the rear, SCOTT have gone for an X-Fusion 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.
Gearing on the SCOTT E-Genius 730 is via the brilliant Sram NX1 11-Speed. Combined with a huge 11-42T cassette means this little beast will go anywhere. Sram NX1 trigger shifters ensure solid and effective shifting that is both precise and responsive. Equally, the Shimano M6000 hydraulic disc brakes on 203mm rotors are highly effective and allow the E-Genius to weave and turn tightly when required. With 2.80 x Maxxis Minion DHF tyres on the front and Minion DHR II’s on the rear, grip is extraordinary and accomplished.
Further enhancements such as a Syncros dropper seatpost and cable routing entirely through the frame are the icing on the cake. With stunning good looks, the SCOTT E-Genius 730 is a serious contender in the world of eMTB.
