The Specialized CruX Elite carbon cyclocross bike isn't just another adventure bike with added tyre clearance. Specialized have created a purebred racing steed that is fast, confident, lightweight, and rides like no other 'cross bike out there.
 
Specialized use size-specific tubes and layups for the frame, which allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. This also drops the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in around a scant 900 grams for a 56cm which is 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. The frame is light and stiff but it is still compliant, and the seat collar has been lowered by two centimeters for more exposed seatpost and cushion for big hits.
 
Cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers so the top tube has been designed for easy shouldering with a large opening to the front triangle and a flat bottom. For stability in the corners and on off-camber sections, the geometry has a low bottom bracket and a sharp front-end.There's also eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tyre, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. So there's no doubt the CruX Elite is race ready.

Road Bike Sizing Guide

Road bikes as the name implies are for road use. There are a growing number of “gravel” or “adventure” bikes which are based on road bicycles, but feature wider and more versatile tyres and disc brakes, so you can also do light trail riding such as towpaths. They are also more pothole resistant!

Sizing is normally in cm, and is a measurement from the centre of the chain-wheel axle (The BB or bottom bracket) and the top of the frame seat tube. Some are measured to the centre of the seat tube where it meets the top tube (otherwise known as the crossbar).

That measurement is on road bikes normally in CM – and no-one really knows why! Some road bikes will use “T-Shirt Sizing” so S, M, L, XL etc. but there will be a geometry chart that then shows the measurement in CM.

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.
