Q & A

Genesis have focused on getting the basics right with their Core range of aluminium hardtails; frames that offer confidence-inspiring handling, comfort and durability along with carefully thought out components that are capable of handling the type of riding that these bikes excell at - anything from classic cross country to black graded trail centre runs. Using the same frame geometry as the universally accliaimed Core 26.5, and having received many glowing reviews and best-in-test accolades themselves; the Core 26.1, .2 and .3 are hardtails that have become established as modern classics on UK trails over the last 5 years - and for very good reason.

Frame Design
Genesis reject curvy, hydroformed fashions in order to have greater control over wall thicknesses and tube integrity, allowing the use a greater range of tube dimensions across different frame sizes than possible if using hydroforming. For a structure that has to cope with forces as varied and dynamic as in a bike frame, the traditional tube is still hard to beat in terms of stiffness to weight balance. Simply tapering or ovalising the main frame tubes in the right places can tune the levels of stiffness in various parts of the frame to deliver a specific ride characteristic - Genesis also use larger diameters and / or thicker walls on larger frames so that everyone gets the right level of stiffness and strength.

About Genesis
Genesis bikes are designed and developed by a small group of riders to fulfil the demands of those who make the UK riding scene one of the most diverse and exciting in the world. With an advantage derived from focusing purely on the UK market allowing Genesis to offer a wide range of complete bikes and framesets that have tangible benefits on home ground.
A bike that's been honed on the steep roads, precipitous mountains or hectic streets of the UK has earned the confidence to take on anything it may come across, anywhere in the world.
Offering bikes that defy categorisation and offer something different, each model is devised to suit a particular riding style or feel. First through prototyping, then frame development and finally production, with lots of riding opportunities throughout the process! This extensive testing makes all their bikes more than the sum of it's parts, one that encourages you to ride that bit more.
