GENUS l ASH
Proud to reveal a new model of GENUS: the smart fusion between a vertical bike rack and a coat rack, here takes the beautiful aesthetics of natural ash wood, well appreciated for its strength, lightweight nature, and shock resistance.
And with the GENUS you can beautifully store your bicycle and hang all the gear in one convenient place, organizing neatly the different accessories. In other words, it’s the perfect answer for those of us who don’t want to stuff their gorgeous steed in the back of the garage next to the lawnmower.
It’s an organic design piece with a pure aesthetic impact. It recalls the shape of a cactus tree, featuring a rounded solid matte ash trunk that hosts the bike, and seven branches on the sides for the gear: they have been designed to hang all cycling accessories (and more).
GENUS essential design makes it a beautiful piece of furniture that embellishes any entrance and can be placed in the most diverse environments: it’s ideal for modern contexts, including minimalistic or Scandinavian décor, and it perfectly blends into classic surroundings, too.
As a unique feature on the market, GENUS is provided with an adjustable wheel hook, covered in precious leather, that can be set to fit all bicycle sizes. You customize its position by screwing the iron plate, in the back of the wall mount, at the convenient height that suits your bike. The hook is 80 mm deep: it’s designed to let you hang most of the wheels; if yours have rims higher than the average, on request, it’s available the Hook XL, which is 110 mm deep.
When you use GENUS for the first time, you screw the seven hand-milled branches in the threaded holes. Each branch features a different inclination and length, according to the kind of accessory that will be hung on it.
The two longest branches have to be positioned at the top of the wall-mount: the right hook is designed to store the helmet (any type of helmet, MTB’s included), while the one on the left it’s perfect for the cycling clothes: jackets, jerseys, bib shorts, baselayers, T-shirts…
In the middle of the trunk, there are three hooks, conceived to let you hang a wide variety of different accessories: bags, hats and cycling caps, sunglasses… and all the cycling gadgets you use to fully enjoy your rides. And if it helps you have peaceful relations in the family, you can reserve one branch for your partner’s gear!
The two branches at the bottom are meant for the cycling shoes: their different length allows to hang both of them in a nice, easy way.
To help you stow your apparel with the smallest footprint, GENUS is provided with one Organizer Band, made of black elastic with our hand-embroidered logo in white: you use it to wrap your bib pants or jacket and hang them neatly on the hooks.
GENUS is very easy to mount. It’s equipped with two anchor plates (their matching plates are mounted on the back of the trunk) and four anchors, suitable for all kinds of walls (drywalls, too). A cardboard targeting mask is included. Once you’ve screwed the anchors into the wall, you just hang the trunk on the matching plates.
With the provided Allen key you fasten the screw placed into the hole at the bottom, to block the rack to the wall.
GENUS can carry up to 25 kg: also the MTB and the e-bikes (together with the gear) can be hung on it.
And it’s extremely simple to use: once you’ve secured it on the wall, at the most comfortable height, you lift the bike upright on the back wheel and then hang the front wheel. That’s it.
