Cyclocross: the traditionalist's event composed of mud, sections of running... and working up a sweat in the depths of winter. It's also great fun, which is why we developed the Cross Race. Designed to offer race-bred handling with comfort and agility as standard, the low-maintenance disc brakes offer reliable, all-weather power wherever your riding takes you. Shimano's evergreen 105 gears, grippy Schwalbe tyres and a comfortable carbon fork add up to a great value bike that's a sound choice for everything from competition use to winter training. Or even, come to think of it, just sprinting off the lights when they turn green on your daily commute.
CUBE's design team loves sweating the details, which is why you'll find thoughtful touches on the Cross Race - like the specially shaped, ergonomic top tube to make for easier carrying. As you'd expect from one of our high performance aluminium frames, we used double butted Superlite Advanced 6061 tubes, optimised via elaborate mechanical forming to create a frame that's both light and stiff. Combined with 12mm through axles front and rear, it means you can be sure that the Cross Race will respond instantly to your every input. We haven't forgotten comfort, either - slender seat stays and a precise-steering, vibration-absorning carbon fork developed specifically for cyclocross work together to reduce rider fatigue. Race-ready geometry provides a balanced ride position, ensuring handling that's the perfect blend of agile and stable - ideal for everything from racing to cross-country rides, training or commuting.
