The 2018 Cross Race SL's double butted Superlite Advanced 6061 aluminium frame is totally geared for performance. Our advanced mechanical forming process allowed our engineers to manipulate tube shapes to create the ideal blend of stiffness and comfort, as well as adding an ergonomically shaped top tube for more comfortable carrying. We added 12mm through axles to ensure maximum steering precision in even the toughest of riding conditions, but we also remembered that riders need comfort, too. That's why we incorporated slender seat stays and a vibration-absorbing carbon fork. Mud-proof internal cable routing will keep your shifting clean and precise, race after race - just one of the little details that will help ensure the best possible performance, off-road or on.
