GENUS I OAK
GENUS is our newest creation: a universal bike rack that doubles as a gear hanger. As all of you know, here in Vadolibero we take quite seriously the mission to offer the most stylish and yet functional storage solutions that let you showcase your machine at home. Even in the living room.
GENUS is the smart fusion between a vertical bike rack and a coat hanger. The result is that you can beautifully store your bicycle and hang 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.
Sleek and simple, it’s an organic design piece with a great aesthetic impact. It recalls the shape of a tree, featuring a rounded solid matte black oakwood trunk that hosts the bike, and seven solid oakwood branches on the sides for the gear: each one has been scrupulously designed to fit and 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 the universal bike rack provided with an adjustable wheel hook, covered in precious leather, that can be set to fit all bicycle’s sizes. You customize its position by screwing the steel plate, in the back of the wall mount, at the convenient height that suits your bike. The hook is 8 cm deep: which is designed to let you hang most wheel types. If your bike has deeper rims than the average, available as an accessory is the 11cm deep XL Hook.
GENUS is smart and simple. Before using it for the first time, you have to screw the seven hand-milled branches in the provided 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 placed 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 to hang the cycling clothes: jackets, jerseys, bib shorts, baselayers, T-shirts…
Positioned in the middle of the trunk, on both sides, there are the three most versatile hooks. They have been conceived to let you hang a wide variety of different accessories: all kinds of bags (no matter what the size or the shape is), hats and cycling caps, sunglasses, devices… and all the cycling gadgets you use to fully enjoy your rides. And if it helps you having peaceful relations in the family, you can always reserve one branch for your partner’s gear!
Last but not least, the two branches on the bottom left 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 masonry wall anchors. A cardboard targeting mask is included in the box. Once you’ve drilled and screwed the anchors into the wall, you just hang the trunk on the matching plates.
The Allen key allows fastening the screw placed into the hole at the bottom, to secure the rack to the wall.
As a universal bike rack, GENUS can carry up to 35 kg (depending on the wall): also MTB and e-bikes can be hung on it.
And it’s extremely easy 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. Enjoy it!
