Scott Genius 2023 Road test review Build quality
The Scott Genius 2023, has a very high cost, but a high build quality, and ultimately has a price even lower than other competitors, compared to which it is made just as well.
The wide availability of assemblies is worth noting.
The overall build quality is therefore good.
We would have expected more sizes.
Not a bargain, but the value for money is better than other competitors.
Scott Genius 2023 Road Test Review Frame
The new frame has been completely revised, only the excellent build quality remains.
There are no notes to make, but we would have expected a greater availability of sizes.
Like other products with high travel it is a frame intended primarily for descent, with a relatively high weight, but in line with the competitors.
Scott Genius 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review
The range of assemblies is very complete, with prices for every "pocket".
The build and assembly quality, in each version, is high, but clearly between top range and entry level there is an abyss in terms of performance, but also of price.
Scott Genius 2023 Road test Comfort review
Very valid, one of the best full mtb in this respect.
Then the rigid frame and integrated handlebar can make the Scott Genius less comfortable than other competitors.
But overall the ride comfort is very good.
Scott Genius 2023 Road Test Review Guide
The Scott Genius 2023 is a mtb clearly devoted to downhill, very stiff and reactive, but not difficult to ride.
It is extremely easy to drive on the pedaled sections, it remains intuitive and safe, never demanding.
Uphill the good work of the rear suspension emerges, it is nothing new, but it always remains a heavy and demanding bike, even if it behaves very well and compared to mtb with the same travel, a few years back, it is far better.
Downhill is one of the best full mtb in the category.
Very fast, easy to handle, but always remains easily controllable.
Even at high speeds it remains safe, easy to drive, without ever becoming really difficult to control.
Its strong point is that it remains a predictable mtb, you always know what its reactions are, fast, but easy to control.
Obviously you need experience and driving skills, at least to reach very high rates.
But downhill it's a competitive bike, on any type of track.
Excellent braking and really fine suspension.
Scott Genius 2023 Road test review Performance
The competitive weight, the excellent frame, the geometries and the excellent suspension, lead to excellent performance, especially downhill, where it can be a very difficult mtb to beat.
The performance on the plains was on average, while they seemed very competitive uphill.
This always for a mtb with high suspension excursions.
At medium pace it is a 360 degree mtb, it goes well everywhere, from pedaled and fast sections, to the most demanding climbs, but it expresses itself at its best in the most difficult and technical descents.
It always remains an easy bike to ride, then by increasing the pace you need driving skills, but it remains one of the best mtb for ease and safety of riding.
A great mtb perfect for those who go fast downhill, but also valid in the plains and uphill.
Scott Genius 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The Scott Genius 2023 is confirmed as an excellent mtb and a perfect evolution of the previous model, compared to which it is superior in everything: something not taken for granted.
The new frame makes it even more competitive, fast, but always safe and easy to drive.
It has improved in everything and is one of the best mtb in its category.
Excellent price / performance ratio.
