Genesis Day One 2021 Bike
Genesis is a UK bike brand specialising in no-nonsense road, touring, urban and mountain bikes for adults and children. Ranging from great value models upto competition-ready racers and with the dire UK weather in mind, they are generally suited to mixed weather conditions and offer comfortable geometries.
Super-commuter, meets touring, meets gravel bike, the Day One is our triple threat!
Take the heart of our CDA, add a dash of hub-geared practicality and finish it with clearance for 42mm tyres and this is what you get.
We reckon it's the best of all-worlds, giving you our most versatile platform with a healthy dose of dependability.
Of course, we don?t need to introduce our best-selling CDA frameset, which features our hybrid double-butted alloy tubing, delivering high levels of stiffness in certain areas and compliance in others.
Adorned with a myriad of mounts for guards, racks, bottles, framebags and Anything cages, this bike can go as far as your legs can carry you and your kit.
The hub-gear delivers reliability and range, which is great news whether you're commuting in all weathers, or on your way to a bothy in the Hebrides.
Finished with 37mm tyres and in a glorious forest green colourway, this is an enduring bike and one worthy of the Day One moniker.
