    2018 CrossTrail Elite Carbon

    The most important part of fitness is that you're following a path, not what kind of terrain lies beneath your tires. So to make sure that you can mix things up between the road and dirt, our CrossTrail Elite Carbon comes equipped with a suspension fork that pairs a remote lockout feature with our Fitness Brain technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface.

    To build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from ultra-lightweight FACT 9r carbon fibre with a geometry that's made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike.

    Add in a mix of performance driven components from the likes of Shimano, powerful TRP hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you'll be riding with confidence in no time—no matter where you choose to ride.

    Awesome ride

    After years of riding a heavy steal bike, I felt the bike was too light. After a few rides I realized the benefits. I ride like I never before, almost effortlessly. On road, off road, it's a pleasure.

    Great value for the money

    I ride in Florida. Along beach hwy and dirt roads. Im not a two bike person so i will give up speed for a bike that handles any terraine. Love this bike and it always stays centered and responsive to my needs. Happy with purchase and would recomend. I bought carbon frame...this bike is a keeper.

    Wow! Love On The First Ride.

    What a beautiful beast to ride, love the way the raw carbon fibre shows up underneath the metallic paint job under different lighting conditions!! Bought one because I've never had a carbon Hybrid before... definitely worth all that dreaming! Pros: Very smooth handling & easygoing over harsh roads, massive gear range for tough climbs. ""Brain"" forks don't affect out of saddle efforts. Cons: None!
