Genesis Croix De Fer 2013 Cyclocross Frameset. Last years' boundary-blurring, runaway success story returns for another year in a fresh new practical paintjob. Loved equally by commuters and weekend adventurers, the Croix De Fer is the ideal 'fun' bike to have in the shed. A bike for ''someone who rides whatever is in front of him rather than aligning to a particular tribe''. Now synomous with the Genesis brand, we were unsure as to how the Croix de Fer would be received when we first introduced it back in 2010. We needn't have worried though; the Croix de Fer has become one of our greatest success stories. Equally well suited to year-round commuting on asphalt, hammering down sun baked bridleways or even exploring the world. It's a versatile and beautiful bicycle that crosses many boundaries. The spec hasn't really changed much since its' inception - testament to the fact that we got it right first time. Utterly timeless and subtly beautiful, we think the new Croix de Fer looks better than ever.
For some time it was the holder of a Guinness World Record when in 2010, in pursuit of an often-contested record, Vin Cox rode his Croix De Fer around the world faster than anyone had managed before. To prove this bikes versatility further, in August 2011 the Montane Icemen used a pair of Croix de Fers to circumnavigate the 1600 mile coast line of Iceland in just 14 days.
