Earlier in the month I joined the Scott crew to trial their new MTB creations. I have a deep love for my own Specialized Stumpjumper Evo and Hardtail Yeti Arc C, so often I'm reluctant to try anything new.
However, without sacrificing my love for them, I have found that love comes in many forms. You are allowed to love more than one bike…shock horror…it is not cheating! First to trial was the Genius 710 Plus Carbon. This remains to be my favourite Scott bike and my most likely buy for the rocky Lake District terrain.
Although it felt cheeky, it meant I could do another lap and enjoy the descents again. I would recommend these bikes for people that are fed up of being at the back, or recovering from injury. It just gives an extra hand meaning you can enjoy the ride, rather than worrying about keeping up with everyone else. You can have a good workout depending on what setting is used, so you can still improve your fitness and abilities at your own pace. I love that these bikes make the sport more accessible to a wider range of people.
Recently I spotted a similar bike, the E-Contessa Genius 720 Plus in a beautiful purple and blue, for any ladies out there that have the same favourite colours as me. But remember don’t judge a bike by its colour…although it is really really pretty and I want one.
Thank you to the Scott Crew for an excellent demo day and setting us up on some sweet bikes.
