Bike Check : Connor Swift's National Champs Winning Zero SL

If you haven't seen it already then click here and check out one of the most impressive rides we've seen in a good long while. Made all the sweeter by the fact that it was our very own Madison Genesis rider Connor Swift at the National Championships! His solo victory in Northumberland is the biggest win of his (young) career and you can be sure he'll wear the national jersey with pride.

Enough about the rider though, what about the bike? Before being washed, cleaned and prepp'd for the next race we snuck it out of the team truck and whipped it into our photo studio for a few pictures.

Connor Swift Zero SL

Connor rides a large Genesis Zero SL (available for mere-mortals soon), and yes this is the same design as the prototype he rode to victory on his first outing with.

The Zero SL uses the same geometry as the steel Volare, but is made from 30/40T carbon fibre which means it comfortably breaks the 1kg-barrier.

All the Madison Genesis riders use the Shimano Dura Ace powermeter chainset (54-42), with data sent to Garmin computers (mounted onboard the drool-worthy CNC machined K-Edge mount)

The bike is full Shimano with Dura Ace Di2 and C60 wheels for max aero gains.
