2018 CruX E5

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.
