The S-Works CruX frameset is a 'cross-optimized warrior. With its S-Works FACT 11r carbon frame, flat disc brake mounts, and S-Works Fact carbon seatpost, it's ready to be built up exactly how you want it—you have the foundation for a real course crusher. 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 centimeters 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 millimeters of clearance on all sides of a 33mm tire, providing plenty of clearance for muddy conditions. Along with clearance, select S-Works models feature hydrophobic, mud-shedding paint that reduces the ability for mud to cling to the frame. It's awesome to have a light bike, after all, but frame weight becomes irrelevant when it's covered in 10 pounds of mud. - Our top-of-the-line S-Works 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. - The S-Works seatpost is constructed from our highest quality FACT carbon fiber.
Back for a title match wrapped in a new colorway, the Nature Cross Geared is flush with special touches destined to shine both on the course and atop the podium. Designed to provide speed and agility between the tape, it’s built from A.C.E tubing, All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing. While excellent off-the-shelf tube offerings have their time and place, using A.C.E. here allows our engineers to go completely custom with the butting profiles and wall diameters—helping them produce a lighter, stronger, stiffer, and faster course crusher, unlike anything else out there. Boasting contemporary race geometry, English-threaded bottom bracket shell, shortened chainstay, replaceable derailleur hanger, and substantial mud clearance, the Nature Cross now features a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires. - It retains all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect, such as custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. This generation of the Nature Cross is the choice for steel lovers with a thirst for competition, so get out there, break some hearts, and separate the contenders from the pretenders. - A.C.E steel tubing: All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, extruded steel tubing, custom designed to be lighter and stronger for riding and racing - Contemporary race geometry, raised bottom bracket, shortened chainstay, and increased mud clearance - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
The Nature Cross Single Speed comes primed for racing, covering quick up-and-downs, and cutting through the gnarliest of courses. Now crafted from A.C.E tubing — All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, custom-designed, extruded steel tubing — the Nature Cross's expertly engineered butting profiles and wall diameters provide advantages that even the most excellent off-the-shelf tubing just can’t match. Stronger, lighter, quicker, and stiffer than ever, it’s simply unlike any other singlespeed in the world. Featuring modern race geometry and an ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over obstacles, we’ve increased the Nature Cross's mud clearance to eliminate unnecessary pit stops on the course. Built with an Eccentric Bottom Bracket to manage the chain tensioning, a shortened chainstay, and replaceable derailleur hanger, we’ve also outfitted the Nature Cross with a Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake, tapered head and steerer tubes, and clearance for 700c x 42mm tires. With a fresh paint job, all the All-City custom touches you’ve come to expect star here too, including custom seat collar and dropouts, flat-mount brakes, and star reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. For steel lovers starving for competition, these updates to the Nature Cross are destined to get you across the finish line faster than ever before. - A.C.E steel tubing: All-City’s proprietary air-hardened, extruded steel tubing, custom designed to be lighter and stronger for riding and racing - Contemporary race geometry, raised bottom bracket, shortened chainstay, and increased mud clearance - Ovalized top tube for easy shouldering over barriers - E.D. coated for durability and rust prevention - Built-in seat clamp and internal rear brake cable routing - Columbus Futura carbon fork with adjustable rake - Fits 700c x 42mm tires
