This pedal assist Scott Genius ebike is an excellent example of a modern ebike. Unashamedly capable. Coherent aesthetics. Good geometry. Capable components.
Black Friday’s official date is November 29 (today!) with mega deals expected to last until Monday December 2. There’s plenty of offers floating around already, and we’re doing the hard part by wading through them, to find the best deals on products our tech team recommends.
‘Buy Now’ links
In our Black Friday deals content, we include links to retailers. If you click on one, then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. This doesn’t affect the amount you pay.
If you’re contemplating getting your first ebike, one piece of advice from us would be ‘don’t do it tentatively’. Jump in with both feet and get a full-on full-sus ebike from a reputable brand, with a worthwhile amount of travel, decent finishing kit and a tried and true motor.
Something like a Scott. With 150mm of travel at both ends. Fox suspension. SRAM Eagle drivetrain. Shimano brakes. Schwalbe tyres. Syncros componentry. All topped (bottomed?) off with a Shimano STEPS E8000 motor and battery system.
