This is an extremely well thought out bike, one of the few enduro bikes on the market that I would be happy to use off the shelf.
It has huge capability on a variety of terrain. Just a quick change to a tougher tubeless tyre setup for alpine riding and you really could charge down anything.
2014 is really shaping up to be the Year of the Enduro Bike. Manufacturers are finally giving the riders what they have been asking for since the beginning of the decade, seeing a general shift towards longer front-centres, lower BBs, slacker head angles and 650b wheels. (OK maybe we haven’t been asking for the wheels for that long!)
The new Trek Slash, GT Force and Pivot Mach 6.6, to name just three, are all heading in this direction too.
It will be interesting to see “Who is riding what?” next year on the circuit, I’m sure this bike will be up there.
As mentioned, I only had two days on this bike but we at Bike Magic are looking forward to a long term test on this and also the Genius LT’s slightly smaller brother, the 150mm travel Genius, which will also be available in a similar ‘Tuned’ guise for 2014.
Will that be the fastest UK trail bike?
