Genesis High Latitude 2014 Mountain Bike


Genesis High Latitude 2014 Mountain Bike. An evolution of last years’ 1×10 model, the High Latitude is Genesis fast rolling, slack-angled, steel hardtail 29er with a low bottom bracket height (low centre of gravity), short, 435mm chainstays and a wide bar/short stem combo that loves to be ridden fast, inspiring confidence through its ubiquitous stability and urging you to push further and harder than ever before. Using the tried-and-tested Reynolds 520 frame (with custom-drawn downtube), and some choice componentry tweaks, the High Latitude returns, more capable and trail-focused than ever. The 32T chainring combined with wide-ratio 11-36T cassette, provides a more useable gear range that’s plenty wide enough for the vast majority of UK trail riding. Not only is it more affordable and easier to maintain than either 2x or 3x setups, it also gives an optimum chainline, increased ground/obstacle clearance and is significantly lighter too. Should you find yourself further down the line wanting an upgrade then there’s provision to bolt a front derailleur straight on too. Roll over just about anything, find traction to claw yourself up those steep and technical climbs, be amazed at just how fast the 29er wheels roll, and keep on rolling.


44mm Headtube: By far the most versatile of headtube standards available, the XX44 headtube ensures full compatibility with different fork steerer tube standards. It also provides a larger weld surface area at both the downtube and toptube junctions to allow for larger diameter tubing and a tube shaping, not to mention increasing front end stiffness, improving tracking and handling. It also allows us to spec a semi-integrated top headset cup – important on 29er’s to help keep the front end as low as possible. Reynolds 520: With similar properties to the famed 531 alloy-steel, Reynolds 520 butted cromoly tubing is made under license for Reynolds in Taiwan, allowing more people affordable access to bikes and frames made from tubing manufactured to their same exacting standards and high quality. 435mm Chainstays & Curved Seat Tube: Whilst our 435mm chainstays (centre to centre) are shorter than most other steel 29er frames on the market, we haven’t compromised on tyre, front derailleur or mud clearance. By bending the seat tube by 5 degrees the front mech sits well forward of the tyre and mud can pass by easily. Genesis have used the chainstay plate from the Latitude 853 to provide plenty of mud clearance, even using 2.4 inch tyres. Ready for the very worst of the UK weather! 27.2mm Seat Post: One thing we absolutely wanted to keep is a 27.2mm seat post. There seems to be craze now for dropper posts, and, whilst undoubtedly great, but there is a risk that the classic steel feel and ride will be lost as manufacturers seem to morph their steel hardtails into something else completely. Steel has superb natural ride characteristics and with the specced 27.2mm seatpost they’re able to fully exploit these to give you a better ride.
