Our Cross is the right bike for escaping the daily routine, out into the open air - whether it’s for the entire evening after work, or a whole weekend. It’s also just as suited to everyday urban use, while retaining its sporty feel. Naturally, we’ve chosen technology that inspires: 30 gears, hydraulic disc brakes... functionality and reliability. Whether it’s tarmac or a forest trail, up in the hills or on the flat, the Cross is ready to go.
Functional can still be beautiful. The dynamic design of the aluminium frame combined with tapered head tube, 3D forged dropouts and double butted tubeset adds an elegant touch while also giving a high level of stiffness without adding weight. Internal cable routing, a replaceable derailleur hanger and multi-functional dropouts - ready to attach mudguards, luggage rack and the Easy Mount kickstand - are all features that you won’t often find in this price bracket.
The Cross’s sporty nature is complemented by a high quality, 30 speed drivetrain made up of Shimano Deore and Deore XT components - including Rapidfire Plus gear shifters and FC-T551 Hollowtech II chainset, whose 48x36x26 chainrings tame any terrain. Suntour’s NCX D-RL suspension fork features a handlebar-operated lockout lever and tapered aluminium steerer for extra steering precision. It’s also pretty handy at smoothing out the bumpiest of surfaces. Seating is gived by Selle Royal’s Viper saddle and Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres roll fast and grip tight wherever you ride.
