Scott Genius eRide 900 2019 Electric Mountain Bike Orange Information

Season : 2019

Brand : Scott

Code : 269966

The Scott Genius eRide 900 ads a bit of kick. With the Shimano Steps system, modern geometry, Fox suspension and a Twinloc Suspension System - explore the mountains like you never have before.

Scott's integrated chain guide was developed in collaboration with the Scott SRAM MTB Racing Team. The idea behind was to create a reliable component that helps to avoid dropping chains but that was light, versatile and integrated in the design of the frame. The new Spark chain guide weighs just 23 grams and is easy to assemble thanks to the smart assembly system and can accommodate chain rings from 30 to 36 teeth.

The Genius has always been a bike designed to go up as well as it went down, and vice a versa. For 2019, we wanted to re-emphasize this point. We designed the Genius specifically in search of balance. Compared to the previous iteration, this one is slacker, has longer reach, shorter chainstays and a steeper seat angle. Scott really wanted geometry figures that would balance out the long front end for more stable descending. The result is a bike that climbs like a bat out of hell and gets you down the mountain faster than you can say "dropping!"

The suspension kinematic brings perfect balance and control to the platform. Using Scott's Virtual Four Link design, they honed their suspension feel, pedaling and braking response to work with maximum efficiency and in harmony with the TwinLoc Suspension System. The kinematic suspension curve gives supple small bump sensitivity and therefore exceptional traction characteristics, perfect support in the mid-stroke and a controlled deep stroke for predictable and comfortable bottom outs. Specific pivot placements ensures efficient pedaling that drives the bike forwards like a startled greyhound and neutral braking that strikes a perfect balance between rider comfort and control, chassis stability and rear wheel traction. From the XC racer, to the downhill enthusiast, the kinematic brings improvements and advantages in all areas and gives a solid fundamental basis for a bike for all riders and all conditions. 

Scott have adopted the new Metric shock sizing standards with a Trunnion mount. Since the shock body now extends between the two lower mounting bolts, Scott's suspension partners have more design space. This means the shock has more stroke for the same eye to eye length. Stroke on the 165mm eye to eye shock has increased from 38mm to 40/45mm.The Trunnion standard also offers structural gains. The shorter shock allows for a very compact frame and shock package, which integrates tightly to the seat tube.  Thanks to the Trunnion mount construction, stand over height on the new Spark is very low. We are still able to realize a super compact full suspension frame and provide the ability to mount both a small and big water bottle.

The Spark family maintains the 165mm eye-to-eye shock length of the previous Spark 900 (Scott's shortest shock), but releases up to 7mm more shock stroke. All Spark RC and most Spark and Spark Plus bikes utilise the Fox Nude shock, specially made for Scott:

  • 165mm Metric Trunnion shock
  • 40mm (100mm travel RC Spark line-up) vs. 38mm (old Spark)
  • 45mm (120mm travel Spark line-up)

By turning the Trunnion shock upside-down, we can fully integrate it into the frame which results in several benefits.Since the Trunnion mount is the same width as the down tube and mainpivot, we can have a very clean frame design in this critical area. The lack of tight transitions and small details allows for an efficient, continuous carbon structure. Carbon material added to reinforce the shock mount also stiffens the connection between the down tube, main pivot and bottom bracket, a key stiffness path.

The flipped shock also lowers the frame’s center of gravity helping to give a more planted feel when riding. Unsprung mass is reduced since it is the lighter part of the shock, connected to the linkage, not the heavier body which must move during an impact – the suspension system can react faster.Our TwinLoc remote cable can be routed cleanly into the down tube.

With TwinLoc, a rider can effectively control the complete frame, fork, and shock as a system. Why does this matter? A bike with 150mm of suspension travel, correctly set up, has more sag than a bike with 130mm. It's that extra travel that makes it more fun to ride and more capable on the descents, but the greater sag has an oversized effect on the bike's geometry and climbing performance. That's where TwinLoc matters.

TwinLoc helps manage the sag effect in several ways. Whereas most systems only increase low-speed compression in an effort to gain pedaling efficiency, TwinLoc allows us to not only change compression damping, but also to change the spring curve, dynamically altering the geometry of the bike. In Trail mode, the shock is not only firmer, but it has dynamically less travel. The bike sits higher, maintains a steep seat angle for those climbs, and becomes more agile. We also offer a third, full lockout mode for going up in the most efficient manner possible.

These unique settings optimize climbing geometry, even on longer travel bikes. We can eliminate the "long travel effect" that can rob your pedaling efficiency, but we're not robbing you of the full-fun, 150mm travel when you point it downhill. From a race setting, to a lunch ride, to an after work trail shred, being able to switch from mode to mode depending on a trails profile at the push of a lever is paramount to riding faster and having a damned good time. 

To meet MTB specific needs, the E-8000 series was designed with all day performance in mind. The capacity of the Ion-Lithium battery has been increased to 500WH and can now be recharged in only 5 hours. The new design features a lower profile specifically for mountain bikes which improves both impact and vibration resistance.

The battery pack offers:

  • 6V of nominal voltage
  • Durability of more than 1000 cycles
  • Removable battery 

The Shimano color display comes in a compact size and is nicely integrated on the handlebar. While the display features full connectivity with Shimano Di2 components it also allows for individual settings for the information shown. The switch has been redesigned specifically for mountain bikes. Thanks to the ergonomic design improvements, the switch is now better integrated and offers a similar feel to a gear shifter.
