Genesis Equilibrium

There is good reason why the Equilibrium has been a staple in the Genesis range many years – a blend of classic materials and semi-compact geometry is an effective combination for a bike that rewards high-mileage riders and those who value comfort, stability and efficiency over anything else.

That said, it’s no slouch – the surefooted geometry, spritely steel frame and lightweight carbon fork work wonders to smooth out and tame the worst of the UK broken roads and will have you descending and cornering like you’re on rails.

Lightweight, durable steel frames, classic looks, full-length mudguard capabilities, sublime ride and handling qualities have all come together to make the Equilibrium a true riders’ favourite, in both disc and rim brake versions.  In many ways it is the quintessential four-season UK road bike.

As well as different components, the individual models within the Equilibrium range are constructed from one of two 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.

Also available in both rim and disc brake Reynolds 725 versions as a frame-only option for endless build possibilities.

With a little more relaxed geometry vs. a conventional road race frame (longer wheelbase, slacker headtube angle & more fork offset), the Equilibrium is designed to mix comfort, speed and efficiency in a package suited to the less-than-perfect tarmac of the UK – generous clearances, mudguard eyelets and even rear rack mounts also add to the versatility of the Equilibrium, making it highly suitable for a huge range of road-going disciplines – from commuting and lightweight touring, through to sportives, winter training and year-round endurance rides.

The Equilibrium is a modern day success story that proves that steel is still a material to be reckoned with given the right application.
