Spe­cial­ized CruX Ex­pert X1

Pedal Magazine - - Buyers Guide 2018 -

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.
