Fairclough having fun in Finale Ligure.


It's often said that opposites attract. That seems to be the case in the Enduro world, where riders from outwardly different disciplines come together to compete and enjoy riding their bikes.

Watch howNino Schurter and Brendan Fairclough rip the new Genius LT 700 in Finale Ligure.


SCOTT athletes Nino Schurter and Brendan Fairclough couldn't be more different with regards to riding styles and background, but when you get the current XCO World Champion and one of the most stylish riders on the downhill circuit on bikes, then everything falls into place. Even though Nino's favorite trail sections may not match Brendan's, there is plenty of common ground where the two can try to out do each other. It's funny how a bicycle can bridge the gap between such different people, and can lead to a mutually beneficial competitive environment.

Two worlds merge into one, and the Genius LT 700 Tuned is truly the tool that creates this connection. It was built for Enduro racing performance and all mountain riding. With 170 mm of front and rear suspension travel , this bike descends with ease. Coupled with our patented TwinLoc lever, you'll be climbing up the most technical sections like a mountain goat at the flick of a switch. Additionally, the Genius LT is one of the lightest bikes in its class, weighing in at only 12.4 kg (27.34 lbs). We built this bike to be versatile and capable of taking a beating, perfect for the downhiller who wants to hit technical singletrack and equally adept for a three-time XCO World Champion who just wants to let loose down the hill. Sit back, relax and enjoy this Parkin Brothers edit about a race format and a bike that brings these two opposites together.
