Genesis and Saracen 2019 gallery: updated Datum, lighter Zero, brighter Traverse

Plus more highlights for next year

Genesis and Saracen have unveiled their 2019 bike ranges, and while many of the changes are incremental updates rather than all-new models, there's lots to like.

We've already covered the slightly wacky Saracen Levarg gravel bike in some detail, but here are the rest of the highlights for the coming season.

Genesis has tweaked its ranges with lots of new paintjobs and small-but-important details, including thru-axles on the Datum all-rounder and direct-mount brakes on the Zero SL racer. 

The brand continues to offer a bewildering array of steel adventure, urban and touring bikes too, including lots of appealing frameset options for those who prefer to build their own bikes. 

Sister brand Saracen has gone gravel-mad with that Levarg, while the Traverse 29er trail machine we first saw in February gets a fresh lick of paint.

Click through our gallery above for all the best bits from the 2019 ranges, and let us know what you're looking forward to in the comments below.
