HOME > BIKES > CYCLOCROSS > 2019 CRUX EXPERT

The CruX Expert is exactly what you need to ride or even race cyclocross, with nothing extraneous. Built to the same geometry and lay-up as its World Championship-winning S-Works big bro, it packs the same ability for punchy acceleration and that instantly-responsive handling.

Constructed in lightweight and extremely stiff FACT 11r carbon fibre, the CruX Expert is certainly no slouch around the course. We took special care to build in vital compliance where it was needed too, because a cross frame is going to need to take a fair bit of beating along the way. To that end the seat collar is also 2cm lower, for more exposed seat post and greater resilience. A one-by drivetrain adds reliability while reducing weight, with hydraulic disc brakes boosting the bike's precision control and supreme stopping power.

The frame was put together with our Rider-First Engineered technology, originally created for our elite road model, the Tarmac. What Rider-First means is that we can optimise every frame size to perform exactly the same by using size-specific tubes and layups. So, whether you ride a 62cm frame or a 52cm, you'll get the same race-winning performance. As a nice little bonus, this process of optimisation also shaved a whole bunch of weight off the bike with the CruX Expert's frame tipping the scales at a mere 900 grams for a 56cm.

The geometry of the CruX Expert is tweaked to suit the rigours of cyclocross, with a top tube that boasts a flat underside, plus a big opening to the front triangle two features that make it easier to shoulder the bike as you tackle obstacles. To boost the bike's stability in the turns and on off-camber sections, the bottom bracket is super-low while the front end is razor sharp a combination that helps you to blast through turns with ease.

With 8mm of clearance on a 33mm tyre, we're pretty confident that this machine should shed all but the most claggy of mud because there's no point getting a lightweight carbon bike if it has 2kg of mud caked onto it. SRAM Force 1 handles the groupset duties, including those aforementioned stop-on-a-sixpence hydro discs, while we've fitted our very own Roval SLX 24 clincher wheels for rolling efficiency. 2Bliss Ready boots finish the job and should keep you running flat-free.

  • Our FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and it takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight.
  • Yep, that's right—carbon wheels on an Expert-level bike. The Roval C38 Disc carbon wheels bring performance to the masses. They're lightweight, durable, and ready for just about anything.
  • SRAM's Force 1 delivers smooth, crisp shifts, along with plenty of stopping power via their hydraulic disc brakes.
