Genesis Croix De Fer 30 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.
From its roots as the very definition of a cross bike to the most forward-thinking build Genesis have created to date, the Reynolds 725 frame benefits from 12mm thru-axles front and rear for added stiffness. Shimano's predictable 105 hydraulic discs bring the best braking in class to drop-bar bikes, while a 32-spoke wheelset hints at the CdF's load lugging abilities. The all-new GRX rear mech also opens up the opportunities for a wider-range cassette or a change to a single ring drivetrain if you choose.
Equally happy commuting in the city one year, before turning into a supertourer the next, the Croix de Fer has always been in it for the long haul and is ready for whatever, whenever you are.
