Product Details

Genesis Zero Disc 1 Carbon Road Bike

Combining carbon fibre learnings from the Zero and the much loved ‘race geometry‘ from the Volare, there Zero Disc is the perfect choice for roadies that want the latest technology.

  • 30/40T Monocoque Carbon Road Race Frame with Genesis Carbon Road Race fork
  • Shimano Tiagra 2x10 drivetrain
  • Continental Grand Sport Race 700x25c

The original Genesis Zero is the result of development by Genesis’ designers and plenty of team input, with the race geometry coming via the evolution of the stainless steel beauty the Volare and its first stab at carbon, the caliper equipped Zero.
The new Zero disc stays true to the self same racing shaping, with my XL machine having a long 405mm reach and low stack of 595mm. The head angle of 73.3 is steeper than most and there's a slightly more relaxed 72.4-degree seat.
The only difference is a slight increase in wheelbase (to 14mm over a metre) thanks to the slightly extended seatstays (410mm).
The inclusion of front and rear thru-axles and flat mounts gives the Disc a super clean look, and unlike many of its rivals Genesis uses the same frameset throughout the range, so no lower grade carbon downgrades here.
The star of the show is undoubtedly the frameset, as soon as you get on board it feels like something special.
It has a solidity and stiffness that immediately impresses. The Zero has a wonderful balance between firmness and comfort, and some of that comes from the use of Fulcrum’s wide rimmed wheels and supple Conti tyres. More importantly, some of this comes from clever touches on the frame design, such as the fork with its straight legs and offset dropout.
This creates a longer path for road noise to travel thus lessening any vibrations by the time they reach your hands — a smart solution that we first saw on bikes such as Trek’s super smooth Domane and BMC’s impressive Gran Fondo.
At the back end, the skinny seatstays (unhampered by a brake bridge) offer enough give to kill any vibrations reaching you, yet the beefy chainstays and bottom bracket ensure excellent power transfer.
