When it comes to leading a fit and active lifestyle, there’s no need to sacrifice comfort to get it with the Crossroads. Comfort is assured, thanks to exclusive Body Geometry components, such as grips, high volume tires and its super-comfortable saddle. With its lightweight alloy frame and rigid fork, the Crossroads handles like a dream on your ‘get the blood pumping’ bike path adventures or weekend rides with the whole family.
WHAT Proprietary aluminum tubing, utilizing ORE (Optimized Radius Engineering) on the downtube plus forged dropouts.
WHY Creates the best balance of light weight, strength, 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 Crossroads bikes for the given ride experience. ORE, specifically, increases weld surface areas at tube junctions for greater strength, while reducing weight.
BODY GEOMETRY COMFORT SADDLE
WHAT Body Geometry Comfort saddle with Comfort Core foam plus gel on Elite model, and Comfort Core foam on Sport and base models.
WHY Means better ergonomics and less fatigue for the rider.
HOW Comfort Core foam in the saddle supports an ergonomically correct position: more dense foam at the base for correct body positioning, and a softer foam on top for comfort under the body’s sit bones and soft tissue.
WHAT Quick release seat collar and adjustable stem.
WHY To better fit the rider to the bike. When the bike fits better, people want to ride more!
HOW The stem can be adjusted with just a few bolts to fit a wide range of people, and seatpost can be raised/lowered very quickly with the flick of a QR lever.
RIGID ALLOY OR STEEL FORK
WHAT Custom aluminum fork on Elite model, and custom profile steel fork on Sport and base models.
WHY For a better-handling, more efficient bike that still offers a comfortable ride.
HOW Custom forks with dialed profiles and geometry assure the right connection with the road for great handling with a smooth ride. Alloy and steel forks offer excellent efficiency, while the upright positioning adds to a comfortable ride.
