Combining the dust and mud of mountain biking with the lightweight frames and smaller tires of road cycling, there are many who would say Cyclocross is the most challenging of all cycling disciplines. Cyclocross bikes have to meet a very narrow criterion to be effective at their sport — they have to be “Specialized” you might say. Well, Specialized cyclocross bikes are just that.
A commitment to advanced technologies gives Specialized great tools to use in creating these hybrid racers. Each model borrows the high-strength fabrication techniques used in race bikes of other disciplines and combines it with the knobby tires and light weight that make a Cyclocross racer just that. Specialized Crux bikes have been designed and built specifically with the sport of Cyclocross in mind. If they seem a little wacky, well, just spend a day at a Cyclocross race, and you’ll understand why.
Being a world leader in bike manufacturing has its advantages. For Specialized, it means having the resources to take a model such as the Crux and outfit it perfectly for its intended use. Specialized Crux bikes come in a number of trim levels, so those preparing for their first overland section will find a bike that fits the bill just as quickly as battle-hardened Cyclocross veterans.
