Our seminal adventure bike, the Croix de Fer is available in a range of Shimano specified models for 2018. Lovingly crafted out of our own Mjolnir Chromoly, Reynolds iconic 725 tubeset and the beautiful 3AL-2.5V double-butted titanium, Croix de Fer is an iconic range of bikes that’ll remind you why you love cycling with every ride. Here's an overview of the models for 2018.
A full, no-holds-barred 3AL-2.5V double-butted Titanium version of the CdF with all the bells and whistles for people wanting a faster, lighter CdF that retains the cross-terrain capacity for which the CdF is famous. Heck, it's even fully internal Di2-ready for those wanting to go the whole hog!
Carefully selected tube profiles are designed to give the new double-butted Titanium platform a stiff and efficient pedalling platform whilst retaining the same connected feel and 'in-saddle' comfort for which the steel CdF is famed. Fully oval Ø28.6/35mm toptube and cleverly swaged seatube (for Ø27.2mm seatpost) are all engineered to deliver high levels of comfort whilst the large diameter Ø44mm oval-rounded trapezoid downtube, beefy S-Bend mtb-derived chainstays, tapered Ø56-46mm headtube and Ø34.9mm lower seattube OD help ensure direct and efficient power transfer and pinpoint sharp handling. You'll also find we've kept the mudguard eyelets, rear rack mounts and generous tyre clearances that help enable it to take on many different incarnations. The one bike to rule them all?!
Weight: 9.96kg (Medium w/o Pedals)
Like the idea of the infinitely capable and supremely versatile Croix de Fer in a lighter, faster package but have your own ideas regarding the 'perfect build'? Maybe utilising the fully internal Di2 routing or speccing up a minimal 1x drivetrain?... The CdF Ti frameset is the route to endless build possibilities.
Faster, lighter and stronger is the theme here with carefully selected tube profiles designed to give the double-butted Titanium frame a stiff and efficient pedalling platform whilst retaining the same connected feel and 'in-saddle' comfort.
Weight: 2.20 incl Seat Collar/Headset
Combining the latest-and-greatest technology from Japan with a classically-styled steel frame and fork combo, the Croix 30 looks every part the proficient modern classic.
Adding to the Croix's capable character comes Shimano's harmoniously integrated 11sp shifter/hydraulic brake package. Dropbar riders are now free to enjoy the power, consistently high performance and industry-leading reliability that mtbers' have been relishing for years, enabling you to push harder and explore further.
Weight: 11.58kg (Medium w/o Pedals)
Fast and responsive, yet stable, surefooted and perfectly balanced, the CdF 20 personifies fun on two wheels, paved or unpaved. Without doubt the closest bike in our range fitting the fabled 'one bike' mantra. Commuting duties during the week then epic, multi-terrain adventures at the weekend, the Croix is a capable and adaptable beast of a bike that rarely gets fazed whichever way you point it.
Weight: 12.04kg (Medium w/o Pedals)
Never has one bike been more worthy of the 'one bike, many hats' crown. Croix de Fer - supremely capable, infinitely adaptable.
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 it's conception.
Weight: 12.22kg (Medium w/o Pedals)
Have something a little different in mind vs. our stock offered CdF builds? 1X or triple drivetrain? Then the frameset option is the way to go!
The steel fork gets swapped back-in for more utilitarian function in-keeping with the capable frame and intended use (an aftermarket carbon option will be available) and we've added a 3rd bottle boss on the underside of the downtube for longer adventures into the unknown.
Weight: 3.72kg (incl Collar/Headset)
