Genesis Croix De Fer Ti 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.
A full, no-holds-barred 3AL-2.5v double-butted titanium frame and full carbon fork create a faster, lighter CdF that retains the cross-terrain capacity for which the legend is famous.
Shimano's all-new GRX groupset gives you more gearing and terrain options to go further, faster than ever before. Tube profiles are carefully selected and designed to give the new double-butted titanium platform a stiff and efficient pedalling platform, retaining the same connected feel and 'in-saddle' comfort for which the steel CdF is famed.
The fully oval Ø28.6/35mm toptube and cleverly swaged seat tube are all engineered to deliver high levels of comfort. The large diameter Ø44mm oval-rounded trapezoid downtube, beefy S-Bend mountain bike-derived chainstays, tapered Ø56-46mm headtube and Ø34.9mm lower seat tube OD help ensure direct and efficient power transfer and pinpoint sharp handling.
You'll also find the mudguard eyelets, rear rack mounts and generous tyre clearances remain, enabling the bike to take on many different incarnations.
