Whether you're looking to race cyclocross or explore the dirt roads near your stomping grounds, Specialized's CruX E5 Sora is your willing accomplice. Its lightweight aluminum frame is full of cross-oriented touches like a carry-friendly top tube, internal cable routing to keep the muck out, and plenty of tire clearance. 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 with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels, a wide-range Shimano drivetrain, and stiff FSA cranks, as well as Tektro cantilevers, and hand-saving gel bar tape.
