The Crosstrail combines elements of a fast, efficient road bike with capabilities of a mountain bike. From the weekday commute to the weekend singletrack, the Crosstrail is a true hybrid that gives you the freedom to choose the road you’re on…paved or not.
WHAT Proprietary aluminum tubing,
utilizing ORE (Optimized Radius
Engineering) on the down tube.
WHY Creates the best balance of light weight,
strength, compliance, and value.
HOW By controlling everything from the raw
material to the extrusion, butting, swaging,
and heat treatment of the tubes, we can
optimize our Crosstrail bikes for the
given ride experience. ORE, specifically,
increases weld surface areas at tube
junctions for greater strength, while
shaving material in non-critical areas.
WHAT New and improved 75mm-travel adjustable
forks with lockout (select models).
WHY Better control and off-road handling for a
more predictable and comfortable ride.
HOW The fork is stiffer with improved top-out,
which reduces harsh rebounds and
creates a buttery smooth ride. With a
lockout, riders gain more efficiency on
WHAT Multi-purpose 700c Borough XC tires and
Body Geometry contact points.
WHY Our multi-use tires allow fast rolling on the
road, with plenty of grip for the trail. And
our BG saddle and grips increase comfort
in critical areas without sacrificing road or
HOW The larger diameter tires’ smooth center
section and grippy side knobs combine for
balanced performance between road and
mountain. The saddle’s BG channel cuts
away a precise center section of foam to
reduce pressure and improve blood flow,
while the grips are shaped ergonomically
to prevent hand numbness.
