Scott Genius ST 900 Tuned review

Jul 2023 · Ben Haworth

This Scott Genius ST 900 Tuned is the most Scott-ish Scott we’ve seen for quite some time. A race bike for those who like to not-race.

Bike Review | SCOTT Genius ST 910

Mar 2023 · Spencer Astra

The all-new Scott Genius incorporates the same bold, distinctly Swiss design as the Scott Spark 900 Tuned AXS we reviewed last year. The new bike tucks its rear shock, a trunnion-mounted Fox Float X Nude, entirely inside the frame for a package that’s both sleek and practical. Rest assured; this bike will turn heads at your local trailhead for the foreseeable future. In addition to its svelte appearance, I found the Genius to be an exceptionally capable 150-millimeter trail bike. Climbing aboard the Genius felt balanced, a sensation I attributed to its 77.2-degree seat tube angle. This bike puts you in an excellent, modern climbing position by keeping the front end planted to the ground on even the steepest uphill maneuvers. Another distinctive feature among all Scott bikes I’ve tested is the handlebar-mounted control center. The Genius has three left-hand levers: one to control the dropper and two additional levers to reduce the air volume of the shock and add a dash of compression damping to firm things up. It’s rewarding to reach for the lockout lever so easily. I’m typically a rider that reserves the lockout lever for only the most heinous road climbs but, with the Genius, I was reaching for it any chance I had—not out of necessity, but out of downright convenience.

Field Test: 2023 Scott Genius ST - Cape Not Included

Dec 2022 · Mike Kazimer

The new Scott Genius ST was the lightest, longest, and most expensive bike we had on hand for the Whistler Field Test

Highs
  • Very capable descender

  • Light weight helps on the climbs

  • Futuristic looks make it stand out from the crowd

Lows
  • Rattling dropper housing inside the large diameter downtube makes a racket.

  • Proprietary shock, thru-headset cable routing, and integrated cockpit can make maintenance and setup more time-consuming.

Review: Scott Genius is a highly adaptable trail bike for big mountain days

Nov 2022

A do-it-all trail mountain bike with suspension that changes travel for climbing or descending, plus gorgeous looks. What's not to like?

Scott Genius ST 900 Tuned first ride review

Nov 2022 · Tom Marvin

A stable pedalling bike that'll get you up the hills efficiently, before happily barrelling down the other side, in an aggressive, yet playful manner.

Highs
  • Fast and efficient uphill

  • Poppy and engaging back down

  • Clean aesthetics

Lows
  • Stiff frame/wheel/cockpit compromises hand comfort

  • Rear brake lacks oomph

The new 2023 SCOTT Genius ST Tuned 900 in review – A master of disguise

Nov 2022 · Felix Rauch

We put the brand new 2023 SCOTT Genius ST Tuned to the test, offering 160/150 mm travel, and featuring the new FOX FLOAT X Nude shock.

Highs
  • Precise handling

  • Clean looking and highly integrated frame

  • Excellent added features like the TyreWiz and the tools hidden in the axle

Lows
  • TracLoc remote isn’t the most intuitive to use

  • Flimsy tire casings that don’t live up to the bike’s potential

[First Look] The All New Scott Genius

Nov 2022 · Marco Toniolo

Today Scott is releasing their new Genius, an All Mountain rig with 29-inch wheels and 160 / 150mm of travel at the front and rear respectively. The thing that immediately catches the eye is the frame with the hidden shock absorber, along the lines of the Spark. Read on for a deeper dive… Geometry The bike on test is in size M. I am 179cm tall and I find myself straddling the M and L. In this case the 460mm reach was sufficient for a nice central position which, assisted by a saddle angle of 77.1° and a 440mm chain
