This classically beautiful, polished Reynolds 953 chassis is the frame placed at the disposal of Roger Hammond’s Madison Genesis team for crit racing duties. While the chassis deployed by the Milton Keynes squad is paired with an Enve Road 2 carbon fork, this off-the-peg model of the Genesis Volare Team frameset comes with a full carbon unit from American brand ADK.
This is the fourth iteration of a frame heavily influenced by feedback from the professionals. It’s available in two versions: one compatible with a mechanical groupset and the other design to accept an electronic groupset. While the rear triangle of its immediate predecessor was fashioned from Reynolds 931, this fourth incarnation features 953 throughout. The incredible strength of Reynolds’ flagship tubing has allowed the thickness of the oversized tubes to be reduced to just 0.3mm in places, resulting in a frame weight comparable with titanium (approximately 1,600-1,700g for a 54cm frame), but with twice the stiffness.
