It doesn't matter if you're racing cyclocross or racing down a fire road, our CruX E5 will deliver tremendous performance at an undeniable value.
We designed it around a durable E5 Premium Aluminum frame and FACT carbon fork that are equal parts lightweight, rugged, and responsive. For the build, it take a no-nonsense approach to performance, utilizing a mix of components, like Shimano Tiagra shifters, a Praxis crankset, and Tektro mechanical disc brakes, so you'll benefit from a durability-first design when the terrain gets rough. Further along these lines, you'll find hassle-free mechanical disc brakes and Tracer Sport tires that were hand-selected for their all-condition abilities.
So start practicing your barrier hops, because this bike will be ready to go just as soon as you are.
- The frame was constructed from our E5 Premium Aluminum in order to provide a stiff, lightweight, and responsive frame that's purpose-built to withstand the rigorous demands of cyclocross. You'll find that the tubing is also formed to make shouldering the bike a breeze, while the semi-compact geometry creates predictable handling and explosive accelerations in the absolute worst of conditions.
- The FACT carbon disc fork was designed to increase steering response and rider input for the tight turns and all-out efforts demanded of 'cross.
- Tracer Sport tires have a fast tread for all-around cyclocross riding and racing. This tread covers all courses, with center knobs to provide ample traction and siped shoulder knobs that adapt to hard and loose ground. They're also respectably lightweight, making it easy to accelerate.
