The Genesis Datum is the brand's second carbon-framed model, following hot on the heels of the Zero with the traditional Genesis unconventional twist. It is their most in-demand bike for 2015/16.

The Datum is their large-tyred road disc bike that’ll comfortably sit mile-after-mile on tarmac, but, should the tarmac come to an end, won’t mean turning back or the premature end of the ride. Not necessarily about out-and-out overall speed, but more fun, adventure, exploration and pneumatically-suspended comfort.

Keen not to pigeonhole such a versatile bike, the Datum is really just a bike for riding around and enjoying yourself, across a variety of terrain, both paved and unpaved, albeit fast or somewhat more leisurely. It could be a gravel bike to some, in the same way it could be a fast, comfy road bike to other.

The Datum 10 is the first bike in the range and is equipped with a full 2016 Tiagra groupset (fairly similar to last year's 105!).

Brilliant distance machine!

I decided to purchase this on the back of the road.cc 15/16 review of this bike (which won the sportive bike of the year in its £3,199 guise). I'm very happy with it. It's exceptionally stiff in the bottom bracket area so it feels efficient when I'm going full gas but it's brilliantly comfortable because of the large volume tires. The extra confidence afforded by the semi-hydraulic disk brakes is also a blessing on pretty awful welsh B roads. I’m also really impressed with the new Tiagra 4700 groupset: it works perfectly. I don’t miss the extra 11th cog and the weight penalty against 105 for someone of my cycling ambition is negligible. The red point job looks stunning too!

Great bike great value

Great bike, and at the price was the best deal available. It's not as fast as a true road bike, but it takes you much further and faster over the rougher forest type trails. Comfort feels fine both front and back. Recommend to anyone is looking for this type of adventure bike.
