High Latitude

High Latitude is an all-new model for 2013 – a front suspended 29er based on the much loved and long-serving Latitude modelwhich has been an important part of our range for several years.

In many ways Genesis were slow to commit to the 29er market, but it seems they were simply taking their time, letting the hype settle down and judging the big wheel phenomenon, first and foremost, on ride quality. Of course geometry is king and wheel size is only one part of the equation – it has to be combined with good geometry for the bike to realise its’ full potential. The Fortitude rigid 29er taught us a lot about geometry and this bike is logical progression for us in the big-wheel category. A relatively slack 69 degree head angle combined with a low bottom bracket height and short 435mm chainstays means that the bike handles best when ridden fast, inspiring confidence and urging you to push harder.

Genesis High Latitude 1x10

Genesis High Latitude 1×10

The 1×10 model is their most affordable steel 29er, with an air sprung, tapered steerer Rockshox fork up front and for the drivetrain we’ve utilised a simple & lightweight 1×10 set up using Sram X5 10sp components, a Truvativ chainset and a neat and tidy Mr.Control chain guide. Shimano hubs mean an easily-serviceable, long serving wheelset and the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer impressive performance and reliability in any weather. A great value bike and a worthy frame for future upgrades.

Genesis High Latitude Alfine

Genesis High Latitude Alfine

The High Latitude Alfine is a great choice for those who require minimum servicing fuss and maintenance. For some people, the technical aspect of mountain bikes is part of the sport and the regular servicing can be a therapeutic ritual, for others it’s nothing of the sort and is just considered unnecessary time spent off the bike. Once the initial 200 mile oil change is carried out the Alfine gearing will help keep you rolling through the seasons with zero fuss.

Core

The Cores are our range of award-winning, hard riding 26inch alloy hardtails. For 2013 we stick with the same proven formula of dialled trail geometry combined with relaible performing componentry that’s won the bikes many a glowing review and best-in-test accolade over the last few seasons. There’s good reason why the Genesis Core is bike of choice for many UK trail centre hire fleets – an established modern classic on UK trails over the last 6 years.

Genesis Core 24

Genesis Core 24″

Introduced last year, the Core 24″ is a bike aimed at young adults who are beginning to enjoy off-road riding and looking to progress with a bike featuring a no-compromise spec that includes hydraulic disc brakes, 24sp drivetrain and a fully functioning coil-sprung suspension fork. The ideal bike for the mtb stars of tomorrow to develop and grow their riding skills with a spec that won’t hold them back.

This is a great little bike that shares the same ride qualities, ethos and winning formula as it’s bigger brothers. Despite its diminutive size, it’s a very capable bike and if your son/daughter is keen to get into mountain biking then the Core 24 will help to develop and hone their riding.

Underestimate the Core 24″ at your peril, it punches well above it’s weight.

Genesis Mantle

The Mantles are our range of alloy 29ers based born from our award winning Core range and everything we’ve learned about 29ers from our Fortitude models. We’ve used the same geometry as the High Latitude to give a bike with fantastic handling and a definite lean towards fast and aggressive trail riding.

A slackish head angle combined with a short stem, wide flat bars and a short rear end means that the bike inspires confidence and urges you to push harder. In true Genesis style we have kept hydroforming to a minimum, wherever possible we have used round tubes and tried to focus on engineering rather than aesthetics. Of course simple round tubes happen to look fantastic and we think the Mantles are particularly handsome.

Genesis Mantle 10

Genesis Mantle 10

The Mantle 10 features a 6061 alloy double butted frameset, combined with an 80mm air sprung Rockshox fork giving plenty of adjustment so that the bike can be set up properly for any rider weight. We have offered a Shimano drivetrain throughout as it performs in season round conditions and has great durability. instead of sacrificing the quality of the forks/brakes etc we have stuck to a 9spd drivetrain and spec’d an adjustable Rockshox air fork, Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano centre lock hubs… it might not seem as impressive when you’re comparing specs on the shop floor but you’ll thank us once you’re on the trails. A well thought out and sensibly specced entry level 29er mountain bike.

Genesis Mantle 20

Genesis Mantle 20

The Mantle 20 and 30 feature a 6069 ALX triple butted alloy frame, the careful selection of tube diameters and wall thicknesses ensures the the frame is light and stiff, yet comfortable enough for long days in the saddle. An XX44 headtube keeps the steering precise and ensures the bike goes where you point it. Both models feature Shimano drivetrains, hubs and brakes throughout, as well as tapered steerer Rockshox air forks. These bikes take over from where the Core 40 and Core 50 left off, however the bigger wheels allow you to roll further and roll faster and provide the confidence to push your limits and progress your riding.

Genesis Grapil

In a brand famous for its steel hardtails, bringing a suspension bike to the table is a bold move. We like riding hardtails but there is definitely a place for full suspension bikes in mountain biking.

When facing a rocky, loose Lakeland climb or a peak district boulder strewn descent then having a full suspension frame certainly helps. However we don’t want to overcomplicate our lives with a bike that has every new technology under the sun or the latest trendy suspension design, but what we do want is sorted geometry, good reliability, durability and suspension that works well and predictably in every situation.

After 2 years of playing with linkage designs and travel set ups we have settled on a 120mm link actuated single pivot with a low leverage ratio that is designed to run with a 140mm suspension fork. You can even use a longer stroked rear shock to increase the rear travel to 135mm without effecting the geometry, but we think the 120mm rear/140mm front works fantastically well. We’ve used as many round tubes as possible to give a lovely clean aesthetic and shouldn’t bikes look like bikes? We think so.

Genesis Fortitude

The Fortitude is a rigid specific mountain bike, you can’t run it with suspension. A relatively slack head angle gives a super stable ride and despite the rigid fork this is a very capable singletrack destroyer.

There is a joy to be had in fully rigid riding, it is a form of mountain biking where you are directly connected to the trail, every shift of your body weight, every dab of the brake lever, every pedal stroke, they all count, it’s a simple but beautiful and rewarding way to ride. In an industry where we are always being sold the latest technology sometimes you just want to escape and it’s amazing just how much fun a rigid bike can be. You will become fast, you will start relying on skills you forget you even had and rather than just charging through obstacles on the latest front or fully suspended bike, you will have to pick your lines, learn how to read the trail again and become a better rider for it.
