Specialized CruX Expert X1
When it comes to cyclocross, the Specialized CruX Expert X1 has everything you need, including SWAT Box compatibility and a third bottle mount on the downtube for water or a Tool Keg on hard training days or gravel grinders. The Specialized FACT 10r carbon frame with rear thru-axle combines all the lightweight responsiveness and rigidity of 11r with minimal weight gains, while the SRAM Force 1 drivetrain and single-ring crankset provide plenty of gearing options without the hassle of dialing-in a front derailleur. The internally routed Specialized FACT carbon fork with thru-axle increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and all-out efforts demanded in cyclocross. The SRP is $5,429.
