Cyclocross

Once simply a means for pro riders to keep their edge through the long, dark off-season, Cyclocross has grown into full-fledged movement. From dedicated 'cross racers who spend their entire year preparing for muddy battle, enthusiasts drawn to the camaraderie and energy of the sport, or simply people who recognize the versatility and fun these bikes offer.

Specialized Crux (6/8)
$3,199.99
This CruX comes spec'd with a reliable SRAM Apex 1 hydraulic disc groupset, durable Axis Elite Disc wheels, and 700x33mm Tracer Sport tires that hookup over nasty terrain. Starting with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered™ technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed Specialized to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in around a scant 900 grams for a 56cm (*dependent on frame size and color)—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn't useful in a 'cross race if it isn't compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. And to assist with the latter, we lowered the seat collar by two centimeters for more exposed seatpost and cushion for big hits. They also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been designed for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features a large opening to the front triangle and a flat bottom. For stability in the corners and on off-camber sections, the geometry has a low bottom bracket and a sharp front-end. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud-shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. After all, frame weight becomes irrelevant when it's covered in 10 pounds of mud.
Giant TCX Advanced (9/16)
$2,549.99
Blast through the sandpit, carve through corners, and lay down the power on the final finishing stretch. This sharp-handling cyclocross machine is made for podium pursuits during ’cross season and mixed road and dirt rides all year long. Engineered for the beautiful chaos of cyclocross racing, this composite flyer helps you keep your cool when conditions get wild. Its Advanced-grade composite frame makes it easier to power up steep climbs, shoulder the bike for barriers and run-ups, and rail descents in sand, mud or ice. It has the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance, and the D-Fuse composite seatpost helps absorb shocks and vibrations—so you can float through ruts and washboard bumps, and stay fresh for the final lap. Integrated disc brakes with flat mounts and thru-axles help boost control, and its Tubeless Ready Giant WheelSystem makes it easy to enjoy the advantages of tubeless tires including a smoother ride quality, less rolling resistance and a reduced risk of flats. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Light and agile - Advanced-grade composite frame offers a perfect balance of light weight for climbing and accelerating, plus stiffness for precise handling on rough cyclocross terrain. Total control - Integrated disc brake technology with flat mounts and thru-axle hubs, combined with tubeless ready Giant WheelSystem, delivers added control in variable conditions and all types of weather. Smooth ride quality - D-shaped composite seatpost reduces shocks and vibrations, minimizing fatigue so you can stay strong to the finish.
