A real 50/50 mix of on and off road
A hybrid bike with added oomph. Wider 38c tyres and a 50mm suspension fork create a bike that is capable on tracks and trails, whereas the lightweight 700c wheels keep the speed and efficiency high on the road. Without a doubt, one of our most popular bike ranges, the crosstrail is a true hybrid – a real 50/50 mix of on and off road.
The entry level crosstrail features a lightweight aluminum frame, with traditional v-brakes. The Crosstrail Disc introduces mechanical disc brakes, whereas the Crosstrail Sport Disc, our best selling version features upgraded hydraulic disc brakes which are more powerful, more reliable and higher quality brakes. The fact that you do not wear down the rim means that you have a more durable setup along with this improved braking performance. A Shimano 9 speed drivechain, with a triple chainring result in a capable and efficient bike even on steep climbs.
The suspension fork features some new technology. Multi Circuit Damping alters the internal compression of the fork, resulting in a plusher, smoother fork. A hydraulic lockout on the other hand allows for high speeds and improved efficiency on the road.
Higher grade M4 aluminum is used on the Crosstrail Comp Disc and above, which is lighter, more comfortable and around 30% stiffer than the A1 aluminum used on the other models. The Comp Disc also includes a remote handlebar mounted lockout, along with Shimano SLX 10 speed drivechain components. The top of the range Expert Disc model upgrades to Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes along with a full Shimano XT drivechain.
