Whether you're looking to race cyclocross or explore the dirt roads near your favorite routes, Specialized's CruX Elite Disc Apex 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 for precision handling. Powerful Avid BB5 disc brakes let you shed the speed you need to dive into corners and make the crucial pass on the inside line. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd with light, smooth DT Swiss wheels wearing grippy Specialized tires, a wide-range SRAM Apex drivetrain powered by a stiff FSA Gossamer BB30 crank and hand-saving gel bar tape for comfort no matter where you venture.
