Make no mistake, this is an off-road performance weapon with class leading power transfer and tyre clearance. But we haven’t sacrificed comfort and style. We have kept the same upper frame structure as our Road platform retaining the incredibly smooth and refined ride quality which is only further enhanced by the bigger tyres.
With double lap lugs joints used in the lower half of the bike, this is a bike built to take what the terrain may throw at it. We have tested it to Mountain Bike standards to ensure it can handle gravel, rutted fire roads, even single track.
By dropping the chainstay we have managed to keep a huge bottom bracket, easily the most power efficient in the market while allowing for an enormous 700c-43 tyre with enough clearance for mud build up. While other brands have tried to do the same, manufacturing restraints have meant a reduction in section as they thread the chainstay through the gap between chainring and tyre. With our mastery of 3D printing we have achieved a truly class leading design with no reduction in stiffness compared to our Road platform.
Like all our models the Crossroad offers custom geometry and paint. Build it with Cross Race geometry. Build it as a pure Gravel Grinder. The choice is up to you. Whatever you choose we will precision craft it to match.
Built to leverage the explosion of 1x groupsets and 12 and 13 speed cassettes. The Crossroad is designed for 1x groupsets only. This allows us to push the boundaries of performance for off-road use and provides a noticeable point of difference in spec and performance to our other models.
