The Specialized CruX Elite X1 is a purpose-built cyclocross race machine. Its light, stiff FACT 10r carbon 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. SRAM's efficient Rival 1 x 11-speed drivetrain is close at hand for dependable, solid shifts when you need them most. The stiff, SRAM crank offers efficient power transfer and clean shifting. It all pairs nicely with the Rival hydraulic disc brakes for confident, effortless braking. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd with light, smooth-rolling Axis 4.0 wheels and comfortable gel handlebar tape.
