Connor Swift’s custom 2019 Genesis Zero Disc SL

At Madison’s IceBike event this week, Connor Swift’s stunning new custom painted 2019 Genesis Zero Disc SL team bike was on display on the Shimano stand.

It’s a stunning paint job I think you’ll agree and a terrific reminder of how much a paint can make a bike really stand out.

This one-off bike for 2019 is to highlight Connor’s National Champion status and the paint for this bike was done by ColourBurn.

I like the use of paint speckles/drops in addition to the clever use of red, white and blue on the forks and stays

As you’d expect, the team bike spec includes a full Shimano Dura Ace Di2 Disc brake set up, with matching Dura Ace Tubular wheels

The paint job also features a number of details personalising it to Ben…

It’s a terrific bit of PR for Genesis, Madison and the team too. The Zero Disc has had an update for 2019 with a new carbon lay up, which should see the bike ride a touch differently than before. I’ve reviewed the original version before and enjoyed it
