SPECIALIZED CRUX ELITE X1 - 2018

Specialized
£3,000.00
It's no secret that 'cross doesn't play favourites out on the course—only the strong survive. And when it comes to bikes, this is especially true. That's why our CruX Elite X1 was built to deliver a no-nonsense approach to the discipline of cyclocross. Beginning with the frame, we implemented our Rider-First Engineered™ technology that was first introduced on our Tarmacs. Using size-specific tubes and layups, this technology allows the CruX to feature the same ride characteristics across every size in the range. Not only this, but it also allowed us to significantly drop the frame weight, so the CruX now comes in at a scant 900 grams for a 56cm—over 400 grams lighter than the previous frameset. A light and stiff frame, alone, isn’t useful in a 'cross race if it isn’t compliant, however, which is why the new CruX also combines stiffness and compliance in all the right places. And to assist with the latter, we lowered the seat collar by two centimetres for more exposed seatpost and, therefore, cushion for big hits. We also know that cyclocross races are often won in the corners and over the barriers, which is why the CruX geometry takes this into account. The top tube has been design for easy shouldering when you're hopping off to clear barriers, as it features a large opening to the front triangle and a flat bottom. For stability in the corners and on off-camber sections, the geometry has a low bottom bracket and a sharp front end. This combination also helps to initiate corners, regardless of the terrain. With maximum mud shedding ability in mind, we included eight millimetres of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. It's awesome to have a light bike, after all, but frame weight becomes irrelevant when it’s covered in 10 pounds of mud. The CruX Elite X1 comes equipped with a spec that lets you stay focused on the race—a SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc groupset, lightweight and durable Roval SLX 24 clincher disc wheels, and 2Bliss Ready tires.
  • Our FACT 11r carbon frame features a race-ready 'cross geometry, and comes equipped with thru-axles, 142mm rear spacing, and takes advantage of our highest quality carbon production methods in order to create a bike that's as responsive as it is lightweight.
  • The internally routed S-Works FACT carbon disc fork features a thru-axle design that increases steering response and rider input for the tight turns and the all-out efforts 'cross demands.
  • SRAM Rival shift levers deliver reliable shifting in nasty conditions, which is furthered by a one-by shift setup that makes dropping chains on the course a thing of the past. Say goodbye to front derailleurs and hello to hassle-free racing.

For the remainder of the discounted models, we can still provide finance, but there will be an interest charged. For further details on our bike finance charges, see below.

For full priced items, finance options are available in 6, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36 or 48 month payment periods.

It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too!

How Much Can I Save Via Cyclescheme

Check out our personalised savings calculator!

Cyclescheme Savings Calculator

The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%

Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa

Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual

If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme (Cyclescheme, Bike2Work etc) all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or contact us to ask us for a quotation. Quotes can be provided for bicycles and bicycle accessories only. Once we have issued you a quotation, simply forward it to your employer for approval. Once you have been approved, you'll soon receive a certificate which can be redeemed for your new bike. The process usually takes between 2 - 3 weeks

Cyclescheme is available for mail order however a delivery charge of £29 will apply. This charge cannot be include in your quotation and must be paid for prior delivery. 

Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000. You can purchase bikes over £1000 and pay the difference, however legal ownership of the bike will remain the employers regardless of how much extra has been paid.

For any questions regarding Cyclescheme please contact us
