Specialized Crux E5 Sport Cyclocross Bike 2017
With a no-nonsense approach to the performance, the Specialized Crux E5 Sport Cyclocross Bike 2017 is the perfect choice if you’re looking to get your foot into the door of cyclocross or want to explore off-road. At the heart of the Crux E5 Sport is Specialized’s E5 Premium Aluminium frame, providing a stiff, lightweight and versatile base that’ll withstand anything you can throw at it. Whether it’s taking a slightly different route to work off the beaten path, or trying out your first cyclocross race, this bike can take it all.
Everything has been addressed with the Crux E5 Sport to enhance your first cyclocross race, such as ergonomic tubing that makes shouldering the bike when running a breeze and semi-compact geometry that enables predictable, responsive handling when manoeuvring through the toughest of terrain.
The FACT carbon disc fork has been incorporated to increase ride stability, with great compliance and rigidity to absorb any of the bumps and vibrations found on both the road and cyclocross courses.
A versatile mixture of Shimano 105 gearing, Shimano BR-785 hydraulic disc brakes and Praxis components provides a great range of terrain-conquering features. A Shimano 105 drivetrain eliminates any chain slipping when in rough conditions and its wide range of gearing enhances the versatility on the course, road or meandering around your local park.
The Shimano BR-785 hydraulic disc brakes are proven in wet-weather, enabling ample levels of stopping power, no matter what the conditions, whilst a Praxis OSBB bottom bracket is strong and stiff enough to reduce any power transfer deficiencies.
Using Specialized Axis Elite Disc, complemented by Specialized Tracer Sport 700x33mm tyres, allows for absorption of bumps and vibrations throughout your ride. The Tracer Sport tyres offer grip where you once thought there was none, and increases puncture resistance.
The frame was constructed from Specialized’s E5 Premium Aluminium in order to provide a stiff, lightweight, and responsive frame that's purpose-built to withstand the rigorous demands of cyclocross. You'll find that the tubing is also formed to make shouldering the bike a breeze, while the semi-compact geometry creates predictable handling and explosive accelerations in the absolute worst of conditions
The FACT carbon disc fork was designed to increase steering response and rider input for the tight turns and all-out efforts demanded in CX
The Tracer Sport tyres have a fast tread for all-around cyclocross riding and racing. This tread covers all courses, with centre knobs to provide ample traction and siped shoulder knobs that adapt to hard and loose ground. It's also lightweight, making it easy to accelerate
