Specialized CruX E5
$1,400.00
Whether you're looking to race cyclocross or explore the dirt roads in your area, Specialized's CruX E5 is your willing accomplice. Its lightweight aluminum frame is full of cross-oriented touches like a shoulder-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 for precision handling, and it pairs nicely with the TRP Spyre disc brakes for confident, smooth braking. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels, a smooth-shifting Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and stiff FSA cranks.
Specialized CruX Elite X1
$3,200.00
It's no secret that 'cross doesn't play favorites out on the course—only the strong survive. And when it comes to bikes, this is especially true. That's why our CruX Elite X1 was built to deliver a no-nonsense approach to the discipline of cyclocross. Beginning with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed us to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn't useful in a 'cross race if it isn't compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. And to assist with the latter, we lowered the seat collar by two centimeters for more exposed seatpost and, therefore, cushion for big hits. We also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been design for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features 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. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. It's awesome to have a light bike, after all, but frame weight becomes irrelevant when it's covered in 10 pounds of mud. The CruX Elite X1 comes equipped with a spec that lets you stay focused on the race—a SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight and durable Roval SLX 24 clincher disc wheels, and 2Bliss Ready tires. - The FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands. - SRAM Rival shift levers deliver reliable shifting in nasty conditions, which is furthered by a one-by shift setup that makes dropping chains on the course a thing of the past. Say goodbye to front derailleurs and hello to hassle-free racing.

Trek Crockett 7 Disc
Katie Compton knows about winning World Cup cyclocross races, so Trek tapped that knowledge to design the Crockett 7. This lightweight aluminum rig has a ton of 'cross-racing features like an aggressive geometry, huge tire clearance, internal cable routing, and a flattened top tube for easy carrying. The carbon fork uses a custom sweep that adds comfort and compliance to the ride while still being laterally stiff to dissect the tight turns you see in a cross race. When playing in the mud, your gear better like it messy, so you've got a SRAM Force CX 1 x 11 drivetrain, Bontrager Affinity tubeless-ready wheels, and SRAM hydraulic disc brakes, all of which shrug off the muck with panache.

Specialized CruX Expert X1
$4,200.00
When it comes to cyclocross, the CruX Expert X1 has everything you need and nothing that you don't. It features the same World-Championship-winning geometry and carbon layup as its S-Works cousin, so ultra-responsive handling and punchy accelerations are covered. You'll also find that these traits are accentuated by the lightweight and extremely stiff FACT 11r carbon fiber construction, while course control is furthered through its one-by design, hydraulic disc brakes, and front/rear thru-axles. Altogether, it's a bike that's guaranteed to take your performance to new heights this season. Beginning with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed us to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn't useful in a 'cross race if it isn't compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. And to assist with the latter, we lowered the seat collar by two centimeters for more exposed seatpost and, therefore, cushion for big hits. We also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been design for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features 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. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud-shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. It also comes with a reliable SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight and durable Roval SLX 24 clincher disc wheels, and 2Bliss Ready tires. - The FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands. - The Roval SLX 24 Disc wheelset features a sub-1600-gram weight, a 20-millimeter internal width, and an alloy construction that makes it a solid performer for any 'cross event.
Specialized CruX Sport
$2,800.00
'Cross is notorious for being hard on equipment. Mud, rain, snow, crashes— they all take their toll. That's why with the CruX Sport, Specialized took their FACT 11r carbon frameset and spec'd it with Shimano's reliable, yet affordable, 105 groupset. Beginning with the frame, they implemented their Rider-First Engineered frame technology into the new frame. Using size-specific tubes and layups, the CruX features the same ride characteristics across the size range. Not only this, but Rider First-Engineered technology also allowed us to significantly drop the frameset weight—coming in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light, stiff frame though isn't useful in a cross race if it isn't compliant, which is why the CruX meshes stiffness and compliance in all the right places. They also lowered the seat collar by two centimeters, allowing for more exposed seatpost and therefore cushion from big hits. Cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, and the CruX geometry takes this into account. When hopping off to clear the barriers, the easy-to-shoulder top tube, with a large opening to the front triangle and flat bottom, is smooth and comfortable. The CruX geometry also features a low bottom bracket, to help with stability in hard corners and off camber sections, as well as a sharp front end to help initiate corners regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud shedding ability in mind, the CruX has eight-millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance in even the worst conditions. After all, it's great to have a light weight bike, but if it's covered in 10 pounds of mud, frame weight is irrelevant. The carbon frame and Shimano 105 groupset is completed with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Axis Sport Disc wheels to get you on the 'cross course or explore that dirt road you've been meaning to check out. - Specialized's FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of their highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands. - Shimano shifters, derailleurs, and brakes deliver reliable shifting and superb braking, so you can focus on the race ahead—not on your gear.
Specialized S-Works CruX
$7,500.00
When we set out to design a new 'cross rig, we didn't just want to make another adventure bike with added tire clearance—we wanted to create a purebred racing steed that was fast, confident, lightweight, and rides like no other 'cross bike out there. With multiple Cyclocross World Championships to its name, the CruX has more than proven itself in the lung-searing race discipline of 'cross, but the new S-Works CruX takes this legacy to a whole different level. Beginning with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed us to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset.

With maximum mud shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. Along with clearance, select S-Works models feature hydrophobic, mud-shedding paint that reduces the ability for mud to cling to the frame. It's awesome to have a light bike, after all, but frame weight becomes irrelevant when it's covered in 10 pounds of mud. This bike is also spec'd with the lightest components possible. Along these lines, it features a full Dura-Ace 9170 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight, aerodynamic, and mud-shedding Roval CLX 50 clincher disc wheels, and an S-Works carbon seatpost and handlebars. - Our top-of-the-line S-Works FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight. - The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands. - The Win Tunnel Engineered Roval CLX 50 carbon disc wheelset offers superior aerodynamics, incredible mud-shedding-ability, and and a svelte 1415-gram weight.
