The story, besides the Foil and new CX bike, from Scott Week in Deer Valley is 27.5+ and it’s for when the dirt isn’t hero and you want traction, and control. More stories about the Genius LT Tuned and the rest of the 2016 bikes from Scott Sports will appear in the next issue of our magazine. We wrote about 27.5+ previously on the blog and Medium. After Park City and Vegas in a week, resting up this weekend, and then heading to Colorado for more mountain biking….
The adventure you’ll have with this bike is directly proportionate to the size of the tire. It’s the Addict CX monster sized for gravel roads and indicates how purposeful the Swiss engineers are. While I didn’t ride this bike (demo only), it’s the same spec as the CX with a different fork for wider tires, like the Schwalbe G-One. I’ll share the rest of the stories about Scott’s new CX bike and the gravel version in the next issue of our magazine.. The lede is… took it up the lift, rode it down the mountain, and it handled perfectly.
