Genesis have seen their road bike range evolve significantly in recent years, with the Zero Disc the latest carbon fibre machine to roll off the production brand from the British-based brand.
In the not so distant past, Genesis worked exclusively with metal, equipping the Madison-Genesis road team with the steel Volare – a frame which featured in the first RCUK 100 in 2015. But then Genesis launched their first carbon fibre machine, the Zero, in 2014.
Three years on and the Zero – developed originally for Madison-Genesis to race on during longer stage races, saving the Volare for criteriums – has had a disc brake makeover. It’s fair to say Genesis have moved with the times.
While disc brakes are still banned at race-level locally, and the debate continues to rage on as to their merits in the pro peloton, there’s more to the Zero Disc than a disc-equipped race machine.
