Unlike the thinking behind many carbon road offerings at this level, we've consciously decided not to not scrimp on the carbon grade used or cut corners on the manufacturing process to squeeze a pricepoint with the Genesis Zero Z.1.
As such, the Zero Z.1 sports exactly the same lightweight, efficient and comfortable chassis as used on the team frameset. Same premium 30/40ton carbon mix - no lesser-grade carbon or manufacturing processes employed for our most accessible Zero complete offering! With the same frame comes the same limited lifetime warranty - the ideal choice for riders looking for a competitively priced, well balanced, quick, robust and race-worthy road machine straight out of the box.

52/36T mid-compact gearing
Whilst on paper a tradtional 50/34T compact vs. a mid-compact 52/36T reads as only a few teeth difference, out on the open road the differences are much more pronounced. 'Best of both worlds' is how we'd sum it up - a happy middleground between the 53/39T racers double and the traditional 50/34T compact. Improved chainline, fewer compensation shifts on the back when changing front chainrings and a comparative wide gear spread when combined with an 11-28T cassette out back are just some of the associated benefits.
Shimano 105 5800
Arguably the best value road groupset in the Shimano range, the new 5800 105 offering gets the full trickle-down treatment from it' s more premium Dura-Ace and Ultegra siblings - 11 speed, slimmed-down, compact hood profile, 4-bolt offset BCD crankarm, lighter shifting action and more powerful braking are just some features borrowed from the higher tier groupsets.
Continental Grand Sport Race
Thanks in part ot Conti's much acclaimed PureGrip compound, the GSR tyres offer a level of performance that belies their price. Assured grip, long-lasting, durable wear characteristics and a supple 180PTI casing combine with a lightweight NyTech breaker strip to ward off punctures.
