Cyclocross may be an acquired taste, but its enduring appeal has created a generation of bikes that are both fast and versatile. The 2017 Cross Race SLT represents the pinnacle of this breed - uncrompromising in both design and execution, it's the perfect choice for everything from podium-chasing cyclocross racing to off-season training. With a brand new frame and top end components, the only thing missing is you.
Frame: Cyclocross courses continue to evolve, challenging both bikes and riders. That's why we put so much thought into the details of the Cross Race SLT's chassis - so, for example, the mechanically formed, complex profile top tube is ergonomically designed to make shouldering the bike both quicker and more comfortable. Internal cable routing keeps gear shifts clean and precise, no matter how muddy it gets. We specced X12 through axles both front and rear which, in combination with the tapered head tube and exceptionally stiff chassis design, give the Cross Race SLT exceptional steering precision. Comfort seatstays and the 'cross-specific carbon/alloy fork help increase rider comfort, and flat disc mounts are neat, light and strong.
Features: Simple, light, reliable, strong: these are the qualities you need in a top end cyclocross bike. So we chose SRAM's 1x11 Force components for their precise shifting and powerful, predictable hydraulic discs. Paired with the light, stiff and fast-accelerating Aksium Disc wheelset from Mavic and the grippy, UCI-compliant Schwalbe X-One 700x33 tyres, it's all you need to take your riding adventures into the mud and gravel... and beyond.
