Trek Crockett 9 Disc Cyclocross Bike 2016
Comfort, speed and manoeuvrability are all essential facets of a great cyclocross bike and they are all characteristics that the Trek Crockett 9 Disc Cyclocross Bike 2016 has built in. The frame is made from Trek's high-performance 200 Alpha Aluminium and is formed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Combining with this frame is the IsoSpeed Cross carbon fork. A generous ride-tuned sweep has been paired with a shape increase for a smoother ride. The unique dropout placement optimises the wheelbase for greater balance.
Designed and honed with the help of Trek's sponsored professional riders, their CX Race geometry helps to maintain comfort, balance and compliance over tough terrain while also allowing you to transfer your power through the pedals.
Providing this power is the Shimano Ultegra drivetrain. The 11-speed setup is combined with a 46/36 crankset that ensures you can power up the short and sharp hills of a tough course.
Braking is accounted for with Shimano RS685 hydraulic disc brakes. These provide the responsive stopping power necessary for negotiating the tight turns of a cyclocross course.
Further bolstering the comfort factor are Bontrager's ingenious Race Lite IsoZone handlebars. These bars have vibration dampening pads on the top and these help to reduce the effect of numbness from vibrations on adverse terrain.
A good cyclocross bike would be nothing without the grip of a competent set of tyres and this is exactly what the Bontrager CX3 Team Issue tyres offer. At 32 millimetres wide, these tyres have been strategically designed to offer optimised grip, while also shredding loose mud and dirt to maintain traction.
Bontrager also account for the superb wheelset. The super-strong and light Affinity Comp TLR wheelset helps to boost rolling speed and balance from the starting gun to the finish line.
