PRIMERA TEAM VERDICT:
Every year the Crosstrail improves and it's done the same again this time. Always using the best alloys to make lightweight frame 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.
You take your fitness journey seriously, and the last thing that you need is to feel restrained by the tools that get you there. That's why our Crosstrail Elite comes equipped with a suspension fork with our Fitness Brain technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface. And to build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from respectably light and rugged A1 SL Premium aluminium with a geometry that's made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike. Add in a mix of workhorse components from the likes of Shimano and microSHIFT, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you have a bike that's perfectly equipped to help you hit your fitness goals with a smile that only the trail can provide.
- Working with our Body Geometry team, we designed a frame that strikes the optimal balance between comfort and efficiency. The A1 SL Premium aluminium construction pairs weight savings with rugged durability, 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.
