29-Inch Wheel (29ers)

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
$3,199.99 - $3,599.99 $3,599.99 Up to 11% 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 Scale RC 900 Pro
$3,999.99 - $4,749.90 $4,749.90 Up to 16% Off
The Scott Scale RC 900 Pro puts domination on the agenda for the season to come. It’s built on one of the lightest carbon mountain frames available, pushes through the rough stuff with a renowned 100mm RockShox SID RL3 fork, and cleans steep climbs and hair-whitening descents with Shimano’s ultralight, extended-range XTR 1x12-speed drivetrain. The Pro’s DT Swiss X1700 wheels are wrapped with Maxxis rubber, both seen often on the bikes beneath the winningest racers out there. The XT brakes deliver the braking you need with subtle input so you can brake later and carry more speed more of the time, while a carbon bar-stem combo and seatpost and titanium-railed saddle round out the top-tier spec on the Scale RC 900 Pro. Add it all up, and you have an XC machine that will turn heads as you lap the competition.
Scott Scale RC 900 Pro
$3,199.99 - $4,199.99 $4,199.99 Up to 24% Off
What makes a Pro? Is it the rider? Is it the bike? Or could it be the resulting synergy that creates an elite-level winner? Scott's Scale RC 900 Pro gives you the opportunity to achieve professional status with its high-performance carbon frame and dialed component spec. 29-inch wheels provide the foundation for speed while power is translated efficiently through SRAM's X1 carbon crankset and X01/GX Eagle drivetrain, and it's all precisely controlled by SRAM's powerful Level TL hydraulic disc brakes. Up front, a Fox 32 SC Float Performance fork with Boost spacing provides the small bump sensitivity and torsional resistance needed for fast pursuits over rocky singletrack, and Scott's RideLoc remote lockout provides instantaneous shock control through a 3-mode bar-mounted lever. Syncros cockpit components complement the build with understated style and function, and the rest — well, it's all up to you.
Scott Spark 940
$3,399.99
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

Coupled with a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package takes the “hard” out of hardtail riding. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far. Santa Cruz went all-in with the Highball Carbon CC XX1. You get SRAM's wide-range XX1 drivetrain, Level Ultimate brakes, and a Fox 32 Factory Step Cast fork for performance that complements your drive to be the best. Santa Cruz Reserve 25 Carbon rims paired to legendary DT Swiss 240 hubs provide the best in lightweight durability and are shod with Maxxis Aspen tires for predictable traction and low rolling resistance. An SBC XC Carbon Flat bar, Syntace LiteForce stem, and Syntace P6 Carbon HiFlex seatpost topped with a WTB Silverado Carbon saddle finish this race-ready cross-country rig, giving you everything you need to blaze the way to a podium finish.
Santa Cruz Hightower 29 R Carbon C
$3,999.00
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards.

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.
