Genesis High Latitude LT 2014 Mountain Bike. Equal part Alpitude, Latitude and High Latitude, the new High Latitude LT (Long Travel) represents a new breed of UK steel hardtail. Utilising a Reynolds 631 tubeset, air-sprung 120mm RockShox Reba fork, the new, ‘in-betweener’ 650b wheel standard, a short stem/wide bar combo and some pretty fun trail-orientated geometry numbers, the LT promises fast thrills and ‘can we have another go?!’ smiles. Sitting at a nice halfway house between the wagon-wheeled 29ers and the longstanding 26" wheel, the 27.5" wheel not only rolls better than its smaller 26" counterparts but is also both lighter and more manoeuvrable on technical terrain than a 29" wheel. Win-win in Their book. Specced with the trail rider in mind, the Reynolds 631 air-hardened tubeset offers a perfect middle-ground between weight, performance and price with a newly-developed 34.9mm – 34.1mm tapered seat tube to give full compatibility with a 31.6mm dropper post at the heart of the frame. The Maxxis Ardent/Crossmark combo is a UK trail favourite and they’re conveniently mounted to tubeless-ready rims should you find yourself wanting to upgrade at a later date. Without doubt the most capable, performance-orientated steel hardtail we’ve ever offered.

 

Reynolds 631: A development of Reynolds’ now-legendary 531 tubeset but approximately 10% stronger, 631 is cold-drawn from billet and air-hardens after welding, creating a frame that is both light (as it’s stronger, we can use less of it), incredibly strong and gives a lively, forgiving ride. 44mm Headtube: By far the most versatile of headtube standards available, the XX44 headtube ensures full compatibility with different fork steerer tube standards. It also provides a larger weld surface area at both the downtube and toptube junctions to allow for larger diameter tubing and a tube shaping, not to mention increasing front end stiffness, improving tracking and handling. 27.5" Wheels: Sitting at a nice halfway house between the wagon-wheeled 29ers and the longstanding 26" wheel, the 27.5" wheel not only rolls better than its smaller 26" counterparts but is also both lighter and more manoeuvrable on technical terrain than a 29" wheel. Win-win in our book. Dropper Post Ready: Genesis had to include dropper post compatibility on such a capable bike – the LT sports a newly-developed Reynolds.
