£899.99 RRP £624.99 Ex. £749.99

Description

Our genre-defying, boundary-blurring bestseller returns for another year - evolved, refined and more capable than ever before. The original gravel bike, with the same 'go-anywhere, do anything' attitude that's been instilled since conception.

Whilst it's nice to know what a particular bike is 'for', we feel applying a specific label to a bike as versatile as the Croix' hamstrings it somewhat, pigeonholing it to one specific use, when, in reality the scope is much, much wider. As such, it's a whole lot easier to list what it 'can be' rather than what 'it is'; Want to mount front and rear racks to the CdF and use it as a lightweight tourer? No problem. Want to swap-in Schwalbe Marathon's, fit 'guards and use it as daily urban commuter? No problem? Want to leave it in stock guise and use it as a mixed terrain do-it-all? No problem; the Croix' will admirably turn its hand to all.

Never has one bike been more worthy of the 'one bike, many hats' crown. Croix de Fer - supremely capable, infinitely adaptable.
