Scott Sports invited us to their USA headquarters in Sun Valley, Idaho for a closer look at the new Gambler (and the completely redesigned Genius, which you'll see soon). You're likely familiar with this bike already, given the fact that Brendan Fairclough and the Scott11 Team have been racing it for much of the season. This gallery is a first look at the production version, though, and includes final geometry specs and more details that were previously unavailable.

The Gambler will come in three versions - the high-end Gambler 10 (shown here in a killer color combo), the Gambler 20, the most affordable Gambler 30, and as a frameset. Click through for more details...

    The linkage setup is essentially the same as what can be found on most MX bikes, simply inverted. It's a little ugly at first glance but I have to say its growing on me and I think it should function fantastically. Honda, Suzuki, yamaha and the rest can't all be wrong...right?

    Any ideas on pricing?

    i dont understand why they run all top end gear, then drop a peg and run the zee groupset instead of full saint... doesnt make sense

    because zee is pretty comparable to saint in terms of quality... the brakes are just as powerful, and the drivetrain works just as well, but is a little heavier (who cares about a few grams on a DH bike) and a little cheaper meaning more savings for the buyer. I think that what they've done makes perfect sense - put the money where it counts (suspension / wheels) and kept the thing at a more reasonable (hopefully) price than if they just slapped full saint on it.

    Or even better: Sram XO build with world cup boxxers.
