Trek Boone 7 Disc
The Trek's Boone 7 Disc is the fastest, smoothest, lightest cyclocross bike ever, thanks to its race geometry and course-smoothing IsoSpeed technology. The CX race geometry was developed with the assistance of the world's fastest racers, and the 600 Series OCLV carbon frame is ultralight and cross-tough. IsoSpeed doubles compliance to conquer the roughest races and includes internal cable routing and hidden fender mounts. The SRAM Force CX1 groupset provides crisp and precise shifting and braking, and the Bontrager Affinity Elite wheels are tubeless-ready with a 15mm front thru-axle. The SRP is $3,999.
Specialized CruX Expert X1
When it comes to cyclocross, the Specialized CruX Expert X1 has everything you need and nothing that you don't. Built around the carbon frame and fork, it comes equipped with a cyclocross-specific SRAM Force 1 one-by drivetrain, SWAT Box compatibility and a third bottle mount on the downtube. The Specialized FACT 10r carbon frame with rear thru-axle combines all the lightweight responsiveness and rigidity of 11r with minimal weight gains and comes with internal routing. The Specialized FACT carbon fork with thru-axle increases steering response. The SRAM Force 1 single-ring crankset provides plenty of gearing options without the hassle of dialing in a front derailleur, and the Specialized Terra Pro wheels are tubeless-ready. The SRP is $5,429.

With all the benefits of Raleigh's top-of-the-line carbon frame, but in a lightweight aluminum chassis, the RX 2.0 is a versatile bike for cyclocross and gravel adventures. Thru-axles increase stiffness and provide perfect rotor alignment, while the mechanical brakes are both powerful and reliable. With sizing options for a wide range of riders, the carbon fork, Clement MXP tires and SRAM 1x drivetrain are all about nudging you to search out mud and adventure. The SRP is $1,850.
