2019 Genesis Croix de Fer

The Genesis Croix de Fer is nothing short of legendary in the world of multi-terrain bikes.  Never has one bike been more worthy of the ‘one bike, many hats’ crown.

The classy looking Croix de Fer is supremely capable, infinitely adaptable and totally reliable.  And in its latest versions it has been evolved and refined to be more capable than ever before – it’s still very much the original gravel bike though, with the same ‘go-anywhere, do anything’ attitude that’s been instilled since it’s conception.

If you are looking for that ‘one bike’ that will take you almost anywhere without missing a beat regardless of the punishment you throw at it, come rain or shine; that you’ll be hard pushed to reach its limits; and, most importantly, induce big grins with each and every outing? Then look no further than the Genesis Croix de Fer.

Fast and responsive, yet stable, surefooted and perfectly balanced, the CdF personifies fun on two wheels, paved or unpaved. Commuting duties during the week, evening spins along the lanes in the evening, then epic, multi-terrain adventures at the weekend, the Croix is a capable and adaptable beast of a bike that rarely gets fazed whichever way you point it.

All models are disc braked, as you would expect, and are fitted with a full range of mounts for full length guards, racks, and three water bottles – and all will take either panniers or bike-packing bags with ease of course.

As well as different components, the individual models within the Croix de Fer range are constructed from one of three different frame materials:

REYNOLDS 725:

The classic premium steel tubing that made the name of Croix de Fer synonymous with reliability and performance –  a seamless Chromoly but heat-treated to boost tensile strength, think of it as Chromoly on steroids.  It’s heated to around 1600F whereby a structural change in the steels’ crystal lattice occurs (a stronger, more uniform orientation), it’s then quenched (cooled rapidly) to lock-in the structural change. As it’s stronger Genesis can get away with using less of it, so thinner butts are the order of the day helping to achieve a lighter overall frame weight and livelier ride without compromising strength.

MJÖLNIR:

AKA ‘Thor’s Hammer’ and pronounced ‘Myol-n(ee)r‘.  Genesis’s double-butted, cold-drawn, seamless, Taiwanese Chromoly tubeset also goes by the aliases of 4130, Cr-Mo and Chromo.  Ultra-reliable tubing that performs well in a variety of applications, and which can be built into framesets at a lower cost than with the lighter and stiffer Reynolds 725.  The starting point for many a tough, affordable steel frame – ideal for applications where low weight or maximum responsiveness are not quite as important.

NEW – DOUBLE BUTTED TITANIUM (3AL – 2.5V Ti):

In a new frame design for 2019, Genesis 3AL-2.5V double butted titanium is a thing of beauty.  Comprising of 3% aluminium and 2.5% vanadium (hence the name), Genesis Ti tubes are butted to save weight where possible without compromising on the quality of the build.  The expertise of the Genesis frame manufacturer is reflected in the attention to detail of each and every frame.  Incredibly strong, wonderfully light, this tubeset offers a silky smooth but thoroughly engaging  ride feel that’ll last you a lifetime.

Both the Ti and Reynolds 725 framesets are available for full custom build using components of your choice.

“The Genesis Croix de Fer is a genuinely capable all-rounder which can tackle off-road mud, rides confidently on road and can be loaded up for touring…It’s a model that has cemented its place within the fabric of the UK designed bike scene after years of reliable existence – and earns itself a place in the Editor’s Choice Awards of 2017 for being a true all-terrain mile muncher ideals for those seeking a bomb proof touring machine”  Cycling Weekly Editor’s Choice 

The ride on road feels very stable, and this is transferred to off-road handling. The Genesis Croix de Fer is a bike which gives a lot of confidence through the mud and puddles that are a feature of UK bridleways pretty much the whole year.  If versatility is your ultimate goal, there are other options within the adventure and cyclocross arena that might meet your needs just as well. However, if you’re looking for a steel bike that will manage heavy-duty touring as well as off-road duties, the Genesis Croix de Fer looks to be bang on the money.”  Cycling Weekly Editor’s Choice
