Genesis Equilibrium 10 2014 Road Bike. There's good reason why the Equilibrium has been a staple in the Genesis range for many a year now. The steel-framed, genre-defining model represents the perfect 'one' bike for any tarmac occasion, with a little less emphasis on 'race' and more on 'ride'. Shimano's no-nonsense Tiagra 10 speed groupset is matched to a premium, heat-treated Reynolds 725 frameset. The increased tensile strength, a direct product of the aging process (heat treatment) enable them to draw the tubes a little thinner walled without sacrificing the frames' structural integrity - helping to drop overall weight and liven the ride. The 32-hole/3-cross wheelset and stout, yet lightweight (435g) classic looking box-section rims should shrug off the worst of the UK's broken roads whilst the comfy new Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres provide ample room for full-length mudguards without being sluggish or puncture-prone. Viewed by many as an ideal winter trainer, we guarantee that after a few rides you'll be won over by the impeccable handling and comfortable yet efficient ride qualities - worthy of use all-year round.
Reynolds 725: Thanks to the heat-treatment process and the resultant increased tensile strength, Reynolds are able to draw the tubes a little thinner walled without sacrificing the frames' structural integrity. Mudguard Ready: Mudguard eyelets front and rear combined with 57mm long-drop brake callipers and bags of clearance make fitting full-length mudguards a doddle. Carbon Fork: The sleek, colour-matched, carbon legged/alloy steerer fork is the perfect complement to the Reynolds 725 frame, offering significant weight saving, confidence-inspiring handling and helping to reduce 'road-buzz' transmitted up through the handlebar. 50cm Size Added: Genesis have expanded the size offerings and added a new, smaller 50cm frame size for 2014, meaning more of you can now hopefully enjoy our bikes and achieve a perfect fit.
