Product Description

From the CX race track to the road less travelled, the Specialized Crux is a rugged and responsive cyclocross bike that is purpose built for racing and ready for anything.

Lightweight and responsive the E5 Premium aluminium frame is purpose built to withstand all the rigours of cyclocross racing. The semi-compact geometry, with a low bottom bracket height and sharp front end, offers predictable handling characteristics and explosive acceleration in even the very worst conditions. The frame tubes are fully manipulated to make the frame stronger while keeping the weight as low as possible. Of course, being a CX bike the frame is also nice and easy to shoulder when it’s just too muddy to ride.

Up front the FACT carbon fork is disc specific and offers increased steering response, as well as a smoother ride. Internal cable routing and wide tyre clearance means that you will collect less mud on the frame even when things get really sloppy.

The Shimano Tiagra 2x10 speed drivetrain is combined with a Praxis Alba chainset which offers reliable shifting over a wide gear range that is ideal for taking on varying terrain. Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes deliver consistent stopping power in all weather conditions.

Durable Axis Sport wheels are shod with Specialized Tracer Sport tyres with a fast rolling cyclocross tread pattern, featuring siped shoulder knobs that adapt to hard loose ground when cornering.

The Specialized Crux E5 is ready for CX adventure.

Cyclocross Bikes Guide

What is cyclocross?

Cyclocross is a multi-discipline cycling race on hills, flats and muddy terrain. There are sections where you'll need to get off your bike and scramble tricky terrain (with your bike on your shoulder).

Skillful bike handling is essential. Cyclocross runs from September to January, making it a great way to keep your fitness up during the off-season. Most cyclocross courses are between 1 – 2 miles mixing everything from tarmac to compact dirt, loose sand, hills and even steps. A versatile bike is key for performance.

How do cyclocross bikes differ from road bikes?

At a glance, cyclocross bikes look just like a road bike. Most cyclocross bikes combine the efficiency of road bikes with drop bars and lightweight frames matched to a carbon fork. Look a little closer and they do differ.

Key differences include:

- Wide 700 30-38c knobbly tyres for grip

- Wide fork and rear stay tyre clearance

- Powerful Disc brakes

- Longer wheel span for stability

- Shorter top tube for improved handling on variable terrain

- Higher bottom bracket for ground clearance

- Wide top tube to shoulder the bike easily

- Internal cable routing (or routing along top tube) to keep debris from damaging cables

These features combine to make a bike which is capable on a range of terrain and conditions.

What else is a cyclocross bike good for?

Commuting

The all-weather performance of these bikes, handling and low weight make them excellent commuter bikes. Disc brakes offer reliable performance whatever the conditions while a light frame helps you speed through the morning rush. Some cyclocross bikes also come with mudguard and rack mounts, further increasing their utility.

Fitness training

Push a cyclocross bike to the limit and you can go very fast. The lightweight road handling characteristics of these bikes are ideal for improving your fitness. Mud clearance, grippy tyres and powerful disc brakes mean you can train year round – even in the depths of winter.

Long distance riding

A slightly more relaxed geometry (riding position) compared to a road bike makes for more comfortable riding over long distances. If you want to go touring, a pliable steel (or ultra-luxury titanium) frame rather than a stiffer aluminium one is less fatiguing on long rides.

Off-road exploring

Leave the tarmac behind. Head into the wide with tyres you can run at much lower pressures (40psi or lower) for added grip. Mud clearance and disc brakes won’t hold you back in the dirt. A slightly more relaxed riding position is stable on variable terrain.
