Scott Genius 950
$2,999.99
Everything you love about the Genius, but with a lower price point. The Genius 950 features TwinLoc Suspension Technology to always optimize your ride, a SRAM Eagle drivetrain and Syncros components. Grab your bike, and get on the trail. One Frame Two Wheel Sizes - With our mountain bikes, we try to achieve ultimate versatility. These specific models can switch from 27.5" to 29" wheels with nothing more than the flip of a chip. No need to change the fork, all you need to do is flip a shock mount chip, change your wheels and off you go. The flip chip allows us to maintain a similar BB height when switching from one wheel size to the other which is key to keeping handling similar for both wheel sizes. With 27.5" wheels, you can run either 2.5", 2.6" or 2.8" tires. For the 29er, anywhere from 2.4"-2.6" is good to go. -Genius Trail Geometry - The Genius has always been a bike designed to go up as well as it went down, and vice versa. For 2018, 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. We really wanted geometry figures that would balance out the long front end for more stable descending. What we've ended up with is a bike that climbs like a bat out of hell and gets you down the mountain faster than you can say "dropping!" After years of testing different options, these numbers are a result of taking everything we want out of a bike for the trails we ride, and building it. Virtual 4Link Design - Our suspension kinematic brings perfect balance and control to the platform. Using our Virtual Four Link design, we have honed our suspension feel, pedaling and braking response to work with maximum efficiency and in harmony with our TwinLoc Suspension System. Our 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. 29" Wheels - Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 27.5” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger. - Best Roll-Over Performance - Carries Momentum - Maximum Traction surface - Best stability on easy trails - Lowest suspension stress - Great for larger frame sizes - Increase stability on long curve Key Features - Genius Alloy SL Frame - FOX 34 Float Performance 150mm Fork - FOX Float, TwinLoc, 150mm - SRAM NX Eagle 12-Speed - Shimano 4 Piston Disc Brakes - Syncros X-30S TR Rims - Maxxis Kevlar Tires - Syncros Dropper Post and Parts
Scott Scale 910
$2,999.99 - $3,599.99 $3,599.99 Up to 17% Off
The SCOTT Scale 910 is a speed-focused hardtail with a featherweight carbon frame and geometry inspired by racing at the highest level. The carbon layup is designed with specific, controlled flex in areas that increase rider comfort and guarantee optimal absorption of vibrations, without sacrificing pedaling stiffness. The result is a frame that is comfortable both in the saddle and while standing on the pedals, which is essential for saving energy on technical downhill sections. Additional features such as a tapered headtube, internal cable routing, and a unique rear brake mount that anchors directly with the chainstay and thru axle, further add to the performance of this capable XC machine. The Scale 910 features a suite of performance components that make it not only race-ready but also loads of fun to ride. A Fox 32 SC Float Performance fork makes for a bike that excels in modern technical cross-country courses. With 3 modes and a remote on the handlebars to switch between them, it ensures you've got the control needed to maximize efficiency on any trail. The SRAM Eagle X01 rear derailleur and GX shifter provide highly accurate and reliable shifting, while the DUB bottom bracket adds smooth, longer-lasting, lighter bearings. Plus, the XD driver allows a massive gear range so you can clear even the steepest hills without issue. And when it comes to descending, the Shimano SLX brakes deliver a superb level of braking control and modulation. Syncros Silverton 2.5 wheels pair a tubeless ready rim design with boost hubs for added stiffness and strength. They come wrapped in durable and fast-rolling Maxxis Rekon Race tires with sidewall-strengthening EXO. When all-out speed is the name of the game, this bike truly shines.

Scott Spark 940
$2,999.99 - $3,399.99 $3,399.99 Up to 12% Off
The SCOTT Spark 940 has a super light Alloy frame. It features a custom FOX Nude Shock, Shimano 12-speed drivetrain and our TwinLoc Suspension System to always optimize your ride. It's lightweight, durable, affordable and retains all the great geometry and ride of its Carbon cousins. Asymmetetric Design - The Spark down tube shock and linkage are clearly asymmetric, when looking from the top of the bike. Carbon fibers achieve their full potential when used in smooth straight lines. Off setting the shock slightly to the left hand side of the bike gives a clean and continuous structure from the down tube through the shock mount to the main pivot. TwinLoc Suspension System - 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, 150m 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. 29" Wheels - Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 27.5” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger. KEY FEATURES - Spark Alloy SL Frame - FOX 34 Float Rhythm 120mm Fork - FOX Nude EVOL, 120mm, TwinLoc - Shimano XT-SLX 12 Speed - Shimano SLX Disc Brakes - Syncros Silverton 2.5 TR Wheels - Maxxis Rekon Kevlar Tires - Syncros Dropper Post and Parts
Scott Spark RC 900 Team
$3,499.99 - $3,999.99 $3,999.99 Up to 13% Off
The Scott Spark RC 900 Team is a cross-country full-suspension bike on a mission to win.

Santa Cruz Hightower C R
$4,399.99
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. While the Hightower R is on the more affordable side of the available Carbon C frame build kits, it's no slouch when it comes to satisfying your trail riding needs. You get a stiff RockShox Yari RC fork paired with a Fox Float Performance DPS shock for excellent shock absorption, and SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain shifts through the massive 12-speed gear range with ease. SRAM Guide R brakes and WTB ST i29 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires put confidence in your fingertips on sketchy descents, while the Race Face Ride stem and Aeffect R bar with 35mm clamp give you the stiffness and leverage you want for precise maneuvers at speed.

A Race Face Ride stem, Aeffect R bar, and RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post finish the build.
Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon C R
$4,499.99
The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails. Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration — designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks — provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe, it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution — either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And, you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector, and ribbed chainstay protector. - Carbon C frame - RockShox Yari RC 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select rear shock - WTB ST i29 TCS 2.0 Rims with SRAM MTH hubs - Maxxis Assegai tires - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - E13 TRS Race SL ISCG05 chainguide

Santa Cruz Tallboy Aluminum D
$2,699.99
If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it. The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre-bending folk hero. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design, this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But, because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. And, the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on... Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Knowing your answer, we mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short-offset fork, something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. And, the radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side. Build Highlights - Aluminum frame - RockShox Recon RL 130 fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 29-inch rims - Maxxis Minion tires - 12-speed SRAM SX drivetrain

Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side.

It combines for a bike that masters singletrack like a mountain lion in chase of late-autumn prey. Its 29-inch WTB carbon rims spin high-end WTB Nineline and Trail Boss tires on Shimano XTR hubs, establishing a new wheel-tire benchmark for lightweight strength and relentless traction. The full XTR 1 x 11 drivetrain and equally exquisite XTR brakes are highly functional jewelry that need no introduction, they're often seen propelling champions to victory worldwide.

Juliana Joplin Carbon C R
$4,199.99
A little bit (cross) country. A little bit rock and roll. The Joplin is a bit of an XC wild child, a light bike that’s heavy on capability with a “let’s go” attitude to any trail. Let’s go fast. Let’s go far. Let’s go until your legs are ready to give up, and then go some more. Let’s make every second count. Let’s carve rides out of busy days and put those lines on the map on your done list. The Joplin’s lean frame and 29-inch wheels float over washboard bumps with the same ease it devours jagged ledges. A geometry bred for long days in the saddle is blended with 130mm of travel in the front and 120mm in the rear, creating a capable climber that doesn’t flinch when roots get ragged and rocks start to roll. The lower link VPP suspension offers a responsive pedaling platform that’s ready to get up and go the moment you are. Whether you’re flossing rock gardens or making the rider in front of you your next hare, the Joplin is one rapid trail fox that will take you farther than you thought you could and give you the confidence to go bigger than you thought you would. With a size range that starts at XS, this bike brings big-wheel benefits to those of us in the fun-size category, too. And yes, every size in the line fits a water bottle inside the main triangle because XS doesn’t mean “do things by half”. Tying up the package is a range of component builds that weave the line between fun and fast, creating a bike that’s ready to race the distance or just race the clouds home. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go! Build Highlights - Carbon C frame - Fox Rhythm 34 130mm fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 29-inch rims - Maxxis Minion tires - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - Race Face Aeffect dropper seatpost
Juliana Maverick C R
$4,299.99
You can’t define the Maverick in just one line. You’re not here to be whatever somebody else thinks you should be... and neither is the Maverick. You’re here to get down. You’re here to go fast. Not fast for a girl. Just damn fast. So is the Maverick. Did someone say smile more? No problem. Tell ‘em to look closer as you set your quads on fire churning up the last brutal climb that makes the downhill taste that much sweeter. When you live for that magical space between pleasure and pain, the Maverick is the bike that won’t say no when you say yes. With 140mm of supportive rear travel complimented by 150mm of front suspension and obstacle-eating 29" wheels, this bike isn’t measured by what it can do. It’s measured by what’s left to do. The lower link VPP suspension soaks up big bumps with a pedal-efficient design that’s easy to tune exactly how you want it. Whether you’re hauling down root waterfalls, biting into big ledges, or soaking up the chatter, the Maverick isn’t here to tell you how to ride — she enables you to ride wherever you decide. Want to change the geometry? The integrated flip chip means all you have to do is grab an Allen key and, in under a minute, you can slacken the headtube and drop the bottom bracket for an extra-planted feel no matter how steep the descent gets. Every size frame fits a water bottle inside the front triangle. After all, some days are made for riding lean. Other days are made for dusk-to-dawn solo sojourns that require an extra bottle in addition to a rucksack. It’s time to escape the shoulda’s and the coulda’s. Write your own rules and explore trails until you run out of water or daylight (whichever comes last). The Maverick is just the pen. Maverick C R build highlights: - Carbon C frame - RockShox Yari RC 150mm fork - Fox Float Performance DPS shock - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - SRAM Guide R brakes - Race Face Aeffect dropper seatpost
