PRIMERA TEAM VERDICT:
Every year the Crosstrail improves and it's done the same again this time. Always using the best alloys and carbons to make lightweight frames and the best Shimano gearing to suit each model, the Crosstrail is a hybrid capable of tackling some off road sections with its front suspension and then whack the lockout on or let the Specialized Brain fork take over and stiffen up the front end allowing for the fastest ride possible.
The capabilities off this bike is amazing. We have fitted pannier rack systems, full length mudguards and lights to create the ultimate commuting bike whilst still functioning smoothly as ever.
The most important part of fitness is that you're following a path, not what kind of terrain lies beneath your tyres. So to make sure that you can mix things up between the road and dirt, our Crosstrail Elite Carbon comes equipped with a suspension fork that pairs a remote lockout feature with our Fitness Brain technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface. To build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from ultra-lightweight FACT 9r carbon fibre with a geometry that's made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike. Add in a mix of performance driven components from the likes of Shimano, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you'll be riding with confidence in no time—no matter where you choose to ride.
- Working with our Body Geometry team, we designed a frame that strikes the optimal balance between comfort and efficiency. The FACT 9r carbon fibre keeps the bike ultra-light and efficient, while the rack, fender, and disc mounts give you an incredibly versatile package.
- An SR Suntour NCX fork w/ Fitness Brain technology features 60mm of coil-sprung travel that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, while an integrated remote lockout is coupled with our Fitness Brain technology to promote more climbing and pedaling efficiency.
- Braking duties are handled by Tektro Flow Set Control hydraulic disc brakes to ensure effective, consistent, and reliable power through any kind of terrain or condition.
