Press Release: SCOTT Releases New All Mountain Line.

by 7

Like what it says on the tin – here’s the press release from Scott about its new 2014 Genius LT 700 bike, plus an enduro-specific clothing and accessories range. We’ve got an insider view Premier story on last week’s press launch right here, too…

Along with the new Genius LT 700 Tuned Enduro bike, SCOTT introduces a new AM product line plus a new movie with Nino Schurter and Brendan Fairclough.

The recently released Genius LT 700 Tuned is the new Enduro bike designed by SCOTT. It realizes the perfect balance of wheel size and travel. Utilizing 170mm of travel and an optimized 27.5″ wheel size geometry, this 12.4kg machine is more than just a “two-in-one” bike. Along with its new FOX suspension and SCOTT`s patented TwinLoc technology, it provides three distinct modes and geometry settings all controlled by one handle bar mounted lever. Its frameset weighs only 2450 grams- one of the lightest in its class. Together with the super stiff and ultra-light HMX Carbon Fiber, this responsive bike is designed for non-compromise enduro racing and maximized all mountain performance.

Besides the Genius LT 700 Tuned, SCOTT engineers set up the Genius 700 Tuned. The 150mm travel bike with 27.5″ wheels weighing in at only 10.6kg – and is a ready-to-race enduro weapon too. Along with this new bike line, SCOTT created an entire head-to-toe enduro outfit, including the all new SCOTT Stego Enduro/All Mountain helmet, the Mind/Path clothing line, the new SCOTT Crafter backpack and the MTB Elite Boa Shoe.

An integral piece in the new collection is the SCOTT Stego. Now more than ever, aggressive trail riders need a helmet that is up to the job. The Stego was designed and tested by world class mountain bikers, and born from a passion for style and innovation. Our designers made it a point to have class leading coverage, and to integrate the MIPS brain protection system. This helmet was designed by all mountain riders for all mountain riders.

All new: The SCOTT Stego helmet.

On the bikewear side, the 2014 Mind/Path line follows the same logic. These technical yet stylish shirts and loose fit shorts have been designed for mountain bikers who like riding challenging single trails in stunning locations. Away with zippers and pockets everywhere: here the designs are clean, without leaving out any functionality.

The clothing collection of Mind/Path was tuned for the new bike line.

Women will discover the new Sumita/Sky collection, designed with many noticeable technical details for girls who like to push their limits on the bike. With feminine cuts and strong colors like red and orange, contrasting with dark grey or blue, every woman wearing this collection will look impressive on the trails.

The concept behind the Grafter was to create a backpack that provides all of the required functionality and features needed for a great All Mountain/Enduro riding pack. We wanted to increase performance, fun and safety without compromising volume, features or comfort. What results from this is the SCOTT Grafter Protect 16.

The new SCOTT Grafter provides everything what Enduro riders need.

This bag has everything that an All Mountain/Enduro Enthusiast could ask for. With features like a removable protector plate, fast access tool pockets, a bladder compartment  and carrying systems for protection and helmets, you’ll always be able to take the items you need.

    Is there any price details on the LT 700 yet ? Never been a big fan of Scott but if that bike rides as well as it appears to be have been designed and put together then I want one, I want one, I want one and see no other reason to buy any other bike

    I’ll reserve judgement until I know the price but going off the previous prices of the LT if they’ve even hiked the price by lets say a ‘fair amount’, then you’ve got to ask how can Scott put together a bike like that when other (lets just say big Californian) brands have to charge the price of a small car for their new models and can’t even stretch to internal cable routing !

    150mm & 10.6kg, wow! Wonder how robust that will be??

    That orange and black colour scheme looks the bizniz.

    “an entire head-to-toe enduro outfit”

    I’m Enduro, more Enduro than you, my costume matches and my bike does too.. )

    I would not let the lack of internal cable routing put you off a bike frame. In fact its a winner for me, working on a bike with internal cable routing is a nightmare, the simplest jobs become epic all nighters and working on the Reverb Stealth requires many hands and bike stands. Nice idea on paper but in the workshop its a pain int’arse!

    It would be great if they did a frame only with a normal shock too. dont like all these cables.
