Genesis Fugio 2018 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.
As the fairly new 'Road Plus' wheel standard creeps its way into the fray, Genesis picked up on the potential and swiftly but carefully materialised their own Road Plus bike - the Fugio 2018.
Accommodating a smaller wheel diameter and larger tyre volume than previous Fugio framesets and other traditional road bikes, it's donning massive 650x50c tyres (27.5x2.0") on 650b thru-axle wheels for incredible traction and excellent cornering control on mixed terrain. The road geometry frame and drop bars make it very good at long distance, and it doesn't mind holding a rear pannier rack for a weekend of camping either. Hydraulic braking keeps everything in check even with additional luggage weight, and the benchmark 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain is highly efficient and consistent in all weather.
You'll also be thankful for the ultra-strong yet springy double butted Chromoly steel frame, and the Carbon bladed fork which manages vibration on particularly bad terrain to reduce arm fatigue, and the gel tape and medium saddle also aid prolonged comfort.
The Fugio stands in a league of its own for 2018. If you're a keen adventurer or you just want an efficient trainer/commuter you can get super radical on in your own time, the Fugio knows not the meaning of apprehension and will serve you well all year round.
