Whether you're looking to race or explore the dirt roads near your favorite routes, Specialized's CruX Elite is ready to go. Its lightweight E5 aluminum frame is full of cyclocross-oriented touches like a shoulder-friendly top tube, internal cable routing to keep the muck out and gobs of tire clearance for when it gets really nasty. Up front, the FACT-carbon fork boasts a tapered steerer and a fork-mounted cable stop for precision handling and smooth braking. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd out with DT Swiss wheels, a wide-range Shimano drivetrain, sure-stopping Tektro cantilevers, grippy Specialized tires and hand-saving gel bar tape.
