Ex-Demo: Specialized CruX Expert X1 Cyclocross Bike - Blue/Orange 58cm Information

Season : 2018

Brand : Specialized

Code : 91418-3058 DEMO

The CruX Expert X1 is the perfect package to achieve the highest results in Cyclocross with its lightweight and durable frame.

When it comes to cyclocross, the CruX Expert X1 has everything you need and nothing that you don't. It features the same World-Championship-winning geometry and carbon layup as its S-Works cousin, so ultra-responsive handling and punchy accelerations are covered. You'll also find that these traits are accentuated by the lightweight and extremely stiff FACT 11r carbon fibre construction, while course control is furthered through its one-by design, hydraulic disc brakes, and front/rear thru-axles. Altogether, it's a bike that's guaranteed to take your performance to new heights this season.

Beginning with the frame, a Rider-First Engineered™ technology was implemented that was first introduced on Specialized Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also significantly dropped the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm - over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn’t useful in a 'cross race if it isn’t compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. To assist with the latter, the seat collar was lowered by two centimetres for more exposed seatpost and, therefore, cushioned for big hits.

Specialized also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been designed for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features a large opening to the front triangle and a flat bottom. For stability in the corners and on off-camber sections, the geometry has a low bottom bracket and a sharp front end. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud-shedding ability in mind, eight millimetres of clearance was included on all sides of a 33mm tyre, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. It also comes with a reliable SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight and durable Roval SLX 24 clincher disc wheels, and 2Bliss Ready tyres.

  • A FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of the highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight.
  • The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands.
  • The Roval SLX 24 Disc wheelset features a sub-1600-gram weight, a 20-millimeter internal width, and an alloy construction that makes it a solid performer for any 'cross event.
