Long live Cyclocross - the traditionalist's world made up of mud, sections of running, and working up a sweat in the depths of winter. They developed the brand new 2017 Cross Race specifically for this role, adding low-maintenance disc brakes. With reliable, all-weather stoppers the Cross Race is a sound choice for everything from competition use to training rides... or even just for sprinting off the lights when they turn green on the daily commute.
For 2017 they re-thought the Cross Race from the ground up, equipping it with thoughtful touches like a specially shaped ergonomic top tube for easier bike carrying. As you'd expect from one of their HPA frames, they used double butted Superlite Advanced 6061 aluminium with tubes optimised via elaborate mechanical forming and X12 axles front and rear. It all adds up to a frame that's torsionally very stiff, but also surprising comfortable, thanks to slender seat stays and a precise-steering, vibration-absorbing carbon/alloy fork developed specifically for cyclocross. The race-ready geometry provides a perfectly balanced ride position, ensuring handling that's the perfect blend of agile and stable - ideal for everything from racing to cross-country rides and training - and it's available in a new, smaller 50cm frame size.
A crosser must have reliable components. That's why they chose Shimano's legendarily precise 2x11 105 groupset in combination with TRP Road Spire mechanical disc brake system.
Fitting 160mm brake rotors front and rear ensures safe stopping even in filthy conditions, while built-by-CUBE wheels shod with Schwalbe Rocket Ron cyclocross tyres mean you'll always be able to find some grip.
Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Their Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
