Genesis bikes have a new range of bike all ready to be launched in September of this year, in the meantime they are keeping us hooked with a look at three of their 2018 gravel grinders.
We had a shed load of fun when we tested Genesis' chubby rubbered mountain bike, the Tarn 20, so we'll be looking forward to getting our hands on these three adventure agents. Here's the official blurb from Genesis:
CROIX DE FER
The Genesis Croix de Fer is a bike with a reputation almost as formidable as the climb with which it shares a name. Years of refinements have resulted in a bike that’s ready for almost anything, and for 2018 it keeps the formula that has made it a favourite of adventurous cyclists everywhere.
Every model in the steel range gets a fresh look for 2018, while the specs remain the same across the board. While the 20 and 30 are built around a Reynolds 725 steel frameset, the 10 is Genesis’s own Mjölnir steel or, if you fancy something a little more exotic, there is always the beautiful Croix de Fer Ti, built around a raw titanium frame and the sort of bike that will attract admiring glances wherever you go.
- CdF 10 – £999.99
- CdF 20 – £1,299.99
- CdF 30 – £1,799.99
- CdF 725 frameset – £499.99
- CdF Ti – £3,499.99
- CdF Ti frameset – £2,099.99
Whether you call it Monstercross, Frankenbike or the result of a passionate night between a road and mountain bike, one thing is for sure: the Vagabond is a bike like no other. With a range of gearing that will take you pretty much anywhere, and a set of tyres that can take road, gravel or mud in their stride, the only limit when you’re riding the Vagabond is your imagination. Coming as a complete bike or a beautiful new purple frameset, you can either buy a bike that’ll take you anywhere, or purchase the foundation for your future cycling adventures.
- Vagabond - £1,099.99
- Vagabond frameset – £449.99
Whether you’re after the perfect commuter bike or something that will give you on and off-road flexibility, the CDA is a bike that has your back even if that country back road turns into a gravel track or worse.
Keeping the same Shimano Sora and Claris groupset options as last year, both CDA models stay under that £1,000 price point and get a nice little upgrade in the form of Clement X’Plor 40c tyres.
- CDA 10 – £849.99
- CDA 20 – £949.99
