Genesis Equilibrium 2020 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.
The Genesis Equilibrium lives up to its name with an efficient balance between rapid road performance and all-round comfort. Featuring Reynolds 725 Chromoly steel tubing to offer forgiving levels of flex and vibration damping, along with a nice long wheelbase, slack head angle and long fork offset to improve stability.
Equipped with a highly capable Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain, transmissions will be quick and consistent, and the high modulation Promax caliper brakes provide confident stopping power in mixed weather.
Peers may be fooled by its classic looks - The happy-go-lucky vibe is merely a facade, it's bound to upset some KOM holders if you put the power down.
There's plenty room under the brakes for mudguards, and a rear rack can also be fitted to make the Equilibrium an awesome 4-season trainer or commuter.
