To the uninitiated, cyclocross can seem an odd way to spend a weekend. But we reckon the fast-paced racing, technical challenges and mixture of riding and running are a great, fun way to maintain fitness through the off season. That's why we developed the Cross Race - a bike that blends race-bred handling with comfort and agility. Low-maintenance Tektro Spyre disc brakes offer reliable, all-weather power through the worst that the winter can throw at you, while Shimano's new 105 gears, grippy Schwalbe tyres and a vibration-absorbing carbon fork complete the package. Add it all up and it makes for a great value cyclocross bike, covering all the bases from entry-level racing to winter training. Or, come to think of it, just sprinting off the lights when they turn green on your daily commute. A bike, indeed, for all reasons.
