CruX Elite

CruX Elite


The CruX Elite is a cross beast, with race-optimized geometry, tapered head tube, internal cable routing, and an outstanding stiffness-to-weight ratio to power through the nastiest courses.


  • Cross racing-specific E5 alloy frame with tapered head tube, integrated headset, and OSBB is ultra-tough; shaped top tube provides easy shouldering
  • Beefy but light, cross-specific DT-Axis 1.0 wheelset with sealed bearings plus slightly wider rim for a wider tire stance and better handling in the slop
  • Tracer tires boast fast, all-around CX tread for riding and racing in varied conditions
  • FSA Omega BB30 crank has cross-specific gearing to handle the dirt
  • FACT carbon fork with tapered steerer provides best balance of strength, stiffness, and compliance for rough terrain
  • Never miss a critical shift with Shimano Sora STI shifters

WHY CRUX?

Competitive riders who live for the fun and fury of ‘cross racing or who want a durable tool for their winter training rides will find all the speed, strength, and quick handling they need in the CruX—master of adverse off-road conditions.


WHAT:
High grade aluminium frame that’s aggressively shaped for the ‘cross racing experience.

WHY:
Drastically improves the structure of the frame for greater durability and performance.

HOW:
Each tube is engineered for pure racing, with the best balance of weight and stiffness to maximize performance; the top tube is even specifically shaped for easy shouldering.


WHAT:
Frame geometry engineered for demands of ‘cross racing experience.

WHY:
Creates a quicker handling, more agile bike—exactly what riders need when they’re navigating barricades and slippery or rough terrain.

HOW:
The geometry features shorter chainstays and a shorter head tube, which creates more stiffness and makes the frame more responsive.


WHAT:
Strategically designed head tube/steerer assembly that tapers from 1-1/8” at the top to 1-1/2” at the crown.

WHY:
Increases strength and stiffness for greater steering precision.

HOW:
Integrating the 1-1/2” crown with a raised lower bearing adds surface area and strength, which ultimately creates a stiffer junction.
