Received: Genesis Croix de Fer 20
Croix de Fer 20
Our Croix de Fer 20 is in Nuovo Grey, and we think it is really rather gorgeous. It’s also available in a similarly understated Olive Green.
Simple graphics, keeping it stylish.
Made from Reynolds 725 Heat-Treated Chromoly – at 26lb it’s not the lightest, but we expect it to soak up the bumps on the road. Time and testing will tell whether this proves to be the case.
Flared handlebars for off road control and comfort.
Shimano Tiagra groupset, with 50/34T on the front…
…and 11-34T on the back.
Clearance front and back for 35C tyres plus mud.
Plus room and lugs for proper mud guards, and racks too.
Stopping is brought to you by 160mm rotors…
…and TRP’s Hy/Rd-C brakes, which combine traditional cable actuation with hydraulic power.
Tubeless ready rims. And Clement USH tyres – apparently named for the airport code of Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, on the island of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.
And there we have it. One very attractive bike that promises to take on pretty much anything you can throw at it. Check back with us to find out if it’s a pleasant to ride as it is to look at.
