Whether you're looking to race cyclocross or explore the dirt roads near your stomping grounds, 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 with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels, a wide-range Shimano drivetrain and stiff FSA Gossamer BB30 crank, sure-stopping Tektro cantilevers, grippy Specialized tires and hand-saving gel bar tape.
