Genesis Equilibrium Disc Ltd review

A top bike from the British brand, but is the Genesis Equilibrium Disc Ltd a little bit pricy?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

At a time when weight, for most, is still pretty much everything when it comes to buying a new bike, many will overlook the Equilibrium Disc Ltd in favour of a carbon number — and as a result, they may miss out on an excellent bike. It feels like all your pedalling power is going into propelling you forward, and when that speed needs tapering back for a sharp bend, the disc brakes deliver just the right amount of stopping power. If you’re looking for a strong workhorse to ride all year, you can’t go far wrong with this.
