Live for the weekends when you climb aboard Specialized's CruX Expert. It checks all the boxes for a true race rocket. 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. Front and rear thru-axles ensure clean tracking through even the choppiest terrain, while the FACT-carbon fork boasts a tapered steerer for precision handling. A SRAM Force 1 drivetrain delivers crisp, reliable shifting in nasty conditions, which is furthered by a 1 x 11-speed setup that makes dropping chains on the course a thing of the past. Say goodbye to front derailleurs and hello to hassle-free racing. The Force hydraulic disc brakes delivers excellent speed modulation, and for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels, comfortable gel handlebar tape, and bump-smoothing carbon seatpost.
