Genesis Equilibrium Disc 30 2016

Online exclusive
{{ vm.state.webThumbOverlay.code }}


Somewhat of a specialist in steel, Genesis offers this lesser used metal in a lightweight versatile bike. A solid, planted and predictable ride, the Equilibrium D 30 gives you the confidence and clean lines that steel boasts and combines it with TRP's dual-piston actuation Spyre disc brakes to give increased braking power making this bike truly 'all-weather'.

Transferring all the practicalities of the standard Equilibrium, generous clearances, mudguard eyelets and even rear rack mounts help the Equilibrium Disc 30 easily morph into a lightweight tourer, daily commuter or winter trainer. Equipped with a Fulcrum Racing Sport CX, less maintenance is needed thanks to their 'double gasket' hub and the wider 17mm rim profile allows for wider, grippier tyres. Set-up with a carbon fork, full Shimano 105 groupset and finished in a bright pacific blue colour way, the Genesis Equilibrium D 20 is the perfect winter machine.

Reynolds 725
Classic seamless Chromoly (as above) but heat-treated to boost tensile strength. Think of it as Chromoly on steroids. It's heated to around 1600F whereby a structural change in the steels' crystal lattice occurs (a stronger, more uniform orientation). As it's stronger we can away with using less of it so thinner butts are the order of the day here, helping to achieve a lighter overall frame weight, without compromising strength.
Challenge Paris-Roubaix
The 'Paris Roubaix' part should be a dead giveaway as to the type of riding these high-volume, lightweight (~240g) 27c tyres are aimed at - fast and comfortable over rough surfaces. AKA ideal for the majority of the UK's roads!
Shimano RS505 Hydraulics
Shimano continue to pave the way in regards to hydraulic braking in dropbar format. Their new ST-RS505 shifter units pick up where the ST-RS685 left off, combining conventional mechanical 11sp shifting and dedicated hydraulic braking in a more affordable, accessible package. They offer consistent, powerful braking and exceptional lever modulation all backed-up by Shimano's legendary reliability. A real game changer.
