Opposites Attract: Brendan Fairclough and Nino Schurter ride the EWS final in Finale Ligure, Italy.

DH vs XC, I know who wins in my book, but this Enduro World Series is pulling in the lycra brigade like nothing else, and when you stick them in baggy’s and full face their prowess on a bike becomes clear to see!

SCOTT athletes Nino Schurter and Brendan Fairclough couldn’t be more different with regards to riding styles or background. But when you get the current XCO World Champion and one of the most stylish riders on the downhill circuit on a bike, everything falls into place. Even though Nino’s favorite sections are the ones that Brendan is less than fond of, there is plenty of common ground where the two are secretly trying to one up each other. After only a short amount of time their friendship has grown and the constant discussions of everything under the sun provides for a wealth of world class insider-information. It’s funny how a bicycle can bridge the gap between such different people, and can lead to a mutually beneficial competitive environment.

Two worlds merge into one– and the Genius LT 700 Tuned is truly the tool that creates this connection. It was built for Enduro racing performance and all mountain riding. With 170 mm of travel on the fork and shock, this bike descends with ease. Coupled with our patented TwinLoc lever, you’ll be climbing up the most technical sections like a mountain goat at the flick of a switch. Additionally, the Genius LT is one of the lightest bikes in its class, weighing in at only 12.4 kg (27.34 lbs). We built this bike to be versatile and capable of taking a beating- perfect for the downhiller who wants to hit technical single-track and perfect for a three-time XCO World Champion who just wants to let loose down the hill. Sit back, relax and enjoy this Parkin Brothers edit about a race format and a bike that brings these two opposites together.
