Genesis High Latitude 2016


Genesis updated trail geometry sees the front-centre measurements increase exponentially improved stability on technical terrain, especially at speeds, and, when combined with the overall shorter stem length, quicker steering inputs. No sizing-up to get your preferred longer reach frame here!

As it’s all together a much more capable bike we’ve added a KS dropper post, beefy 34mm stanchion 120mm Suntour Aion RC forks and Shimano’s brilliantly simple 142x12mm E-thru axle out back to keep things in check. The Maxxis Ardent/High Roller II in EXO/TR casing make for a formidable UK trail combo and are mounted to wide 25mm tubeless-ready Alex Volar 2.5 rims – only a valve, tape and sealant swap from a dedicated tubeless setup!
