10 Mountain Bikes We Want to See Under the Tree this Christmas

Scott Genius LT Plus


I’ve become a serious plus-size addict over the past year, and I’d want to see 27.5+ wheels and tires on any mountain bike that appears under my tree! One of the very best of this new breed of bikes–and also the one that boasts the most suspension–is the Scott Genius LT Plus, with 160mm of travel front and back. This burly bike is rideable on your average, everyday trails, but it’s also beastly enough to take on any bikepark–as my testing at both Deer Valley Resort and Vail Mountain seem to indicate.

If Santa is dropping this bike off, you might as well go with the top-ended “Tuned” model, which retails for $8,000. However, if “Santa” is on a budget, check out the other models, for $5,300 and $4,200.

MSRP: $5,300-$8,000
