2013 Genesis Bikes Add Ti, Alloy Road Racers, Full Suspension MTB & More!

2013 Genesis Equilibrium titanium road bike

Genesis Bikes’ lineup has expanded with new materials and models for road, mountain and cyclocross.

Above, the Equilibrium is a seamless double butted titanium road bike with shaped, oversized tubes and 44mm headtube. It comes built with mostly Shimano 105, including hubs, and tapered fork with alloy steerer and carbon legs. The frame and fork get fender mounts, making it a good year round bike for training, racing and just getting to and fro.

It joins a couple of high end alloy racing bikes for road and cyclocross, their first full suspension mountain bike and some hardtail 29ers…

2013 Genesis Volant alloy road bike

The Volant looks more like the type of alloy race bikes we see at NAHBS, which is a good thing. Oversized alloy tubes, slightly shaped stays and a 44mm headtube add up to a good looking rig that should make crit racers quite happy.

2013 Genesis Vapor disc brake alloy cyclocross bike

Genesis has had their Croix de Fer and Day One steel disc cyclocross bikes for a couple years now, but the new Vapor becomes their race-level ‘cross bike. It shares a similar alloy frame as the Volant but with some off road tweaks like proper cyclocross geometry and a large gusset at the downtube/headtube junction. It also gets disc brakes and maintains the rack and fender mounts of its siblings to extend use beyond race season.

2013 Genesis High Latitude 29er hardtail mountain bike

The High Latitude is a new steel 29er hardtail mountain bike. It’ll set up as singlespeed or geared, and at the moment is still officially in the prototype stage as it’s not quite shown on their website.

A nice machined section of the chainstay provides ample clearance for a double or triple crankset.

Tubing is Reynolds 520 steel and geometry is built around a 100mm suspension fork. If you want to run rigid, they offer the Fortitude 29er that’s designed for use without a suspension fork.

2013 Genesis High Grapil full suspension mountain bike

The 26″ Grapil is also still officially in prototype stage. It’s a 120mm travel frame designed around a 140mm fork for trail/all-mountain use.

The bikes: whatever. The booth and those displays: hilariously awesome.
