Q & A

The Genesis Fortitude is a fully rigid 29'er mountain bike, a niche model but one that provides a a breath of fresh air and shows just how much fun simplicity can be! The range consists of 3 models, each designed with a distinct purpose in mind:
The Race version is designed to do just that, the combination of a supple Reynolds steel frame, high volume tyres and rolling ability of 29" wheels combines to make it an ideal bike for 24hr endurance events such as Mountain Mayhem - the 1x10 drivetrain provides sufficient gear range to spin up the climbs and keep the pressure on when the trail points downwards, with an e13 guide keeping the chain in check and the latest Shimano Deore disc brakes enabling you slow things down effortlessly.

Frame Design
The Fortitude is a rigid specific mountain bike, based around a 445mm steel fork to ensuring the front end stays nice and low, it offers a relatively slack head angle (69.5 degrees) to give a super stable ride, and despite the lack of suspension travel is a very capable singletrack destroyer.

There is a joy to be had in fully rigid riding, it is a form of mountain biking where you are directly connected to the trail, every shift of your body weight, every dab of the brake lever, every pedal stroke, they all count, it’s a simple but beautiful and rewarding way to ride. In an industry where we are always being sold the latest technology sometimes you just want to escape and it’s amazing just how much fun a rigid bike can be. You will become fast, you will start relying on skills you forget you even had and rather than just charging through obstacles on the latest front or fully suspended bike, you will have to pick your lines, learn how to read the trail again and become a better rider for it.

To enhance the pedigree and timelessness nature of this bike Genesis have used classy Reynolds 725 tubing, and are particularly proud of the shaped seat tube which gives a nice tight wheelbase but also allows for the desired seat angle, while giving a nice clean look and ensuring straight tubes throughout.

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.

Note: Frameset also available, please call for details
