Product Information

Specialized Crux Elite Men's Cyclocross Bike

Cyclocross has seen a huge boom in recent years. Riders taking on farmers fields, sand, thick mud, barriers and just about every form of winter weather condition you could this of in a race against the clock and the next best rider. Specialized love it and we love it too with a number of our staff members getting involved, it has even been rumoured that Kris Fowler was once upon a time Sussex's best! The Crux was designed specifically for this form of racing and the Elite was built with some of Specialized's very finest parts including the S-Works carbon fork and seatpost as well as the Phenom competition saddle. Sram's 1x Rival groupset will provide smooth and reliable gearing no matter how clogged up your groupset becomes and DT Swiss's wheels are strong enough to deal with changing weather conditions and challenging surfaces but light enough to bring you the win!
