FeaturesTwinloc Lever System

Our patented Twin Loc technology now offers simultaneous control of rear shock travel and fork lockout. The open position allows full travel, front and rear. One click switches the rear shock to Traction mode, while the fork remains fully active. Click again and rear shock and fork lock at the same time. No other bike in the world offers this user friendly system. Found on the Spark & Genius and Genius LT models.

IDS-SL Dropouts with Post Mount 180  

The Genius LT uses the new 142mm x 12mm standard rear axle and hub system to reduce swingarm flex. It can also be adapted to 135mmx12mm or 135mm x 5mm using our Interchangeable Dropout System named IDS-SL. The bike further features our Post Mount 180 system that eliminates bulky brake adapters and offers protection against caliper breakage/damage.

Linkage and BB adjustment  

The optimized one piece aluminum linkage is combined with oversized bearings to provide a stiff connection between the front and rear triangles. An elliptical “travel chip” inserted at the upper shock mount allows the Genius LT’s bottom bracket height to be adjusted by eight millimeters, which in turn alters the bike’s head angle between 67° and 66.3°.

Oil Transfer System  

The OTS Equalizer3 shock is comprised of three separate chambers activated by the TwinLoc lever, and it delivers three distinct suspension travel options. When the TwinLoc is positioned to allow full travel, oil from the main chamber can be forced into both positive chambers, allowing maximum travel. When the TwinLoc lever is moved to the Traction Mode position, the port to one of the positive chambers is closed. This reduces the volume of oil that can be displaced from the main chamber, and thus reduces the amount of travel. The lockout lever position closes the ports to both positive chambers. Because no oil is allowed to leave the main chamber, the suspension is effectively locked.

Equalizer 3  

The Equalizer3, 185 mm of travel, is a unique Oil Transfer System (OTS) shock co-developed by SCOTT and DT Swiss engineers. By working closely together, they were able to isolate projected forces and customize the performance of the shock to match the intended ride characteristics of the bike. The body of the Equalizer3 shock is mounted just above the bottom bracket with the shaft affixed to the linkage. This configuration works to lower the bike’s center of gravity and also minimizes unsprung weight to provide the best possible small bump sensitivity.
