Podcast #068 – Scott Genius’ hidden shock, dual travel design explained

At the 2023 Scott Genius launch, after some big rides in the Italian Alps, I interviewed two of the mountain bike engineers behind the design, Etienne Chaloin and Tim Stevens. From hiding the shock inside the frame to creating a new dual-travel rear shock with Fox, they explain why they went with the new design and how it all works.

Check out the full launch coverage of the new Genius, which comes in carbon and alloy models that are remarkably similar in looks and features. There’s a deep dive on the new Fox Nude dual-travel shock in that story, too.
