Cyclocross: The Specialized Carbon Crux Pro

Cyclocross Bike Review: The Specialized Carbon Crux Pro

Cross season is almost upon us. It's time to look at your bikes, wheels, tires, and other equipment to make sure you're ready.

Specialized released its carbon Crux last year to great reviews. With a slight redesign and new paint jobs, the new bikes for the 2013-14 season are stunning and will be available soon.

Specialized has spent a great deal of time and energy designing its Crux frame. I'm riding the alloy version now and it has amazing geometry that keeps me centered on the bike, able to make precise off-camber turns. The bike goes where I want it to go!

For a specific review, here is an article from Cyclingnews. My carbon Pro Disc Crux has already been ordered!

Stop in at Ben's Cycles pro shop to learn more about this bike and other cyclocross bikes! We also stock tubular and clincher tires and wheels, shoes, pedals. We'll review and recommend other cross products in future blog posts.

Here too is a profile of Rebecca Rusch's carbon disc crux that she used to win the Dirty Kanza 200 gravel bike race.
