The Latitude Ti is the most technically advanced frame in the Genesis range. At a quick glance it may just look like any other Titanium hardtail frame, but we can assure you that every tube, weld and frame feature has been designed and engineered from scratch to offer the ultimate trail ride. We'd reccomend building it up with a set of 120mm tapered forks and 2x10 drivetrain.

Frame Design
Titanium has been the 'ultimate' frame material for many years, dispite having dropped out of favour during the influx of carbon, it's experienced a re-surgence of late as people (the Genesis team amongst them) discover it's benefits. Their aim with the titanium version of the Latitude was to make a bike that offered a lighter, equally smooth ride when compared to the steel Altitude, without the excessive flex that a light steel or slim-tubed titanium frame could have. The geometry is the same as the steel frames but the feel is lighter, faster in a way. Hard to describe, but one ride and you'll know!

The Latitude Titanium has all the features of the 853 Latitude; a new double butted tubeset with a triple butted down tube that has a thicker wall for the section nearest the headtube to act as an internal gusset, making a stronger join without the need for additional reinforcement. An XX-44 headset standard compatible headtube is compatible with stiffer, tapered steerer tube forks. The top tube has been tapered and flattened to maximise the width at the front (something only possible with this new, larger headtube diameter) and minimise the depth and diameter at the rear - stiffness where you need it for handling, compliance where you need it for comfort. To work with this new level of handling and comfort are slimmer wall seat stays. The frame uses a chainstay plate to ensure chainring clearance for 2x10 drivetrains without any loss of tyre room. And finally, they tweaked the angles to allow better control over rougher ground, now that you have stiffer forks and a more stiffness-optimised frame design.

The new Latitude Titanium is a light but tough, fast but capable contradiction in hard tail design, a typical UK style trail ripper for a capable rider that wants to be involved with the ride as well as unhindered over rougher ground. Using cold-drawn, custom-butted seamless grade 9 3Al/2.5V titanium  (the industry standard) these frames are made in Taiwan to a very high standard - so high that the factory is the only one currently able to transfer their skills with titanium to the TIG-welding of Reynolds 953.
