Whether you're looking to race or just explore the dirt roads near your favorite routes, Specialized's CruX Elite 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 and a fork-mounted cable stop for precision handling and chatter-free braking. And for even more on/off-road versatility, the CruX is spec'd out with a wide-range Shimano drivetrain, sure-stopping Tektro cantilevers, grippy Specialized tires, padded bar tape and a svelte carbon seatpost.
Specialized's Zertz viscoelastic inserts damp harsh vibrations to give you a velvety smooth ride that leaves you feeling comfortable and refreshed mile after mile.
This frame’s head tube is 1 1/2 inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8 inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
