Conquer the mud with the Specialized Crux Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike 2017, designed to tear through mud and enhance traction in the corners to become one of the highest performing bikes in the cyclocross world. A FACT 10r carbon frame keeps everything lightweight for an efficient ride, whilst the SRAM Force brakes and drivetrain provide great stopping power and the reliability to stop any nasty mechanicals which could potentially end your race.

Specialized Crux Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike 2017

With world championship winning components and geometry, the Specialized Crux Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike 2017 is a tried, tested and conquering bike that has taken the cyclocross world by storm. Combining Specialized FACT 10r carbon fibre that keeps weight to a minimum but stiffness and rigidity to the max, and Specialized’s ultra responsive handling that enhances control on tough cyclocross courses, this bike is built to take on whatever you throw at it.

No matter what you’re intending to ride, the Crux Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike 2017 has all the terrain conquering components to push your performance to the next level. Specialized have directly built this bike to take the top of the podium when racing cyclocross, with features such as internally routed cabling to reduce any misdemeanours when out on the course and a thru-axle design to enhance strength when riding down steep banks, whilst also increasing steering responsiveness when maneuvering around tight corners when stuck in the pack.

SRAM Force Hydraulic disc brakes offer enhanced braking in the corners, overcoming thick mud and providing unparalleled versatility in wet weather conditions. A SRAM Force drivetrain with X1 setup makes slipped chains a thing of the past due to its great range of gearing and single front chain ring.

The 11-speed drivetrain furthers the Crux Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike 2017’s incredible versatility, reducing any irritating mechanicals by the roadside and as previously noted, stopping the chain slipping off the front derailleur. With reduced changing on the front chainring, the chain and chainrings will last longer, too.

Combatting the Crux with DT R460 Disc Pro wheels allows you to slide through mud easily, staying stiff and rigid no matter what’s in your way, whilst Specialized Terra Pro 2Bliss Ready tyres enhance traction through the corners and deep mud for a faster ride. 2Bliss Ready also allows you to easily transform your bike to a more versatile ride, reducing punctures on the road and off it.


  • The carbon frame was constructed from FACT 10r carbon fibre, so it experiences minimal weight gains in comparison to the S-Works version, while retaining all of the rigidity and responsiveness required for cyclocross racing.

  • The internally routed FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design, and it increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and all-out efforts demanded in CX.

  • SRAM Force shift levers deliver crisp, 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.
