The e-bike world is still at the center of discussions for series of prejudices.
We were initially bit hesitant about using this type of MTB, but after testing some new products, we changed idea.
We have been to Lecco for Bike UP, where we have been able to try the Scott E-Genius 710 Plus. The all-mountain bike of the famous Swiss brand.
This model with aluminum frame is equipped with Bosch Performance CX 250w, 500W battery and Purion display where you can see all the data regarding battery charge, different engine delivery modes, speed and km runs.
The Fox 34 Float Performance Elite Air 140mm fork and 130 mm Fox Nude with remote control lock allow you to focus on the track without pull off your hands from the handlebars.
E-Genius has the Fox Telescopic saddle remote control with 100mm excursion for size S and 150 mm for all other sizes.
Completing the assembly of this e-bike are the 27.5" wheels and Plus tires that guarantee a very fun ride both uphill and downhill.
We were very impressed because it allowed us to climb on trails that normally go downhill.
The driving impression was really good and immediately we carried away with this e-MTB. We have noticed how the handle and agility changes with the plus shell despite the weight of the engine and the battery.
We really invite you to try it before judging because we are sure you will enjoy it.
The use of this bike is geared to a smaller audience than muscle bikes, but for this reason, this is not to be underestimated!
The SCOTT E-Genius 710 Plus applies proven electric assist technology to a capable offroad package. ePowered by the Bosch Performance CX drive system, and in unison with our patented TwinLoc technology, allowing for three travel settings, the E-Genius 710 Plus brings another element to the mountains. Trails will never look the same. Available in the 27.5" plus wheel size.
