2018 Passoni Top Genesis



Go back to where it all started with the Passoni Top Genesis. This handmade, fully customizable titanium racing frame will ensure that you will always be comfortable on the road without sacrificing any of the peppy get up and go that must be the soul of any racing bike.

When you choose a Top Genesis, you are likely interested in more than just getting a fast bike. You are interested in design, technical skill and beauty. Passoni is a brand unabashed to promote the importance of the individual craftsman and frame builder. Nothing is to be hurried, nothing left to chance, no detailed ignored. Sure you pay a premium for that, but you also end up with a bike that will ride as well and look as elegant twenty years from now as it does today. This is a bike that you can hand down to the next generation with full confidence that your heirs will have as much enjoyment riding it as you have had. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The reason why this bike can have that sort of longevity is because Passoni have made it using the highest quality alloys, expertise workmanship and advanced methods of welding. They have turned to grade 5 titanium for nearly all the tubes, which means that the tubes will offer the frame builder a perfect combination of strength, weldability and corrosion resistance.

The elegantly sized tubes will offer plenty of rigidity for those days you are looking to topple some PRs, but most importantly they will ensure that velvety smooth ride that is the hallmark of titanium frames. The rear triangle also uses slim tubes both with the seat stays and the ovaled chainstays tapered to provide the necessary rigidity without losing the desired compliance. This is what titanium does really well. And if this is going to be your first titanium bike after a decade on carbon, then you will be amazed at just hoe comfortable a bike can be without losing any of that snappy efficiency we all love in our racing bikes. Contributing to the solid, stable handling, the head tube has been made from grade 9 titanium with a traditional 1"1/8 headset, so that it offers the perfect mix between an easily weldable material and a super strong alloy. Combine that with the customized Passoni Columbus Minimal carbon fork, and you can rely on the predictable handling up front while still enjoying the vibration absorption promised by the curve of the carbon fork.

As wonderful as the ride will be on this bike, what you really might enjoy most is just looking at it parked in your hallway. Be prepared to get a lot of comments at the coffee shop as well. The hand glazed tubes positively glisten in the sun, and the graphics have been sandblasted onto the titanium, so will look as sweet today as ten years from now. The Top Genesis is a bike that you can order completely customized, though you may be lucky enough to fit one of the five stock sizes that are also available. You can also order it with internal rear brake cable routing if you prefer. The Passoni Top Genesis will not only live up to but exceed your greatest expectations about how amazingly a beautiful ti bike can ride.
