SPECIALIZED CRUX

More Than the World’s Lightest Gravel Bike


The Crux is the lightest gravel bike in the world, with the exceptional capability of massive tire clearance and performance gravel geometry. But Specialized didn’t just want to make the ultimate expression of gravel performance, They wanted to make you one with everything.

725G FRAME/7.25KG COMPLETE

Lightest Weight

 
Specialized took the revolutionary breakthroughs that made Aethos the lightest bike ever and applied them to the Crux. The result? A gravel bike that climbs like a dream and floats over nightmarish terrain with a frame that weighs less than a full bottle in your cage.

47C/650B X 2.1” TIRE CLEARANCE

More Capable

 
More clearance means more capability. With Diverge-level tire clearance, Crux takes you anywhere you can imagine, at full gas.

What do we think? 

 
"If you're looking for all the characteristics of a lightweight, racy road bike with the ability to dive into bridleways and forest tracks we think you can't beat the new Specialized Crux for an all-in-one package. I have one of these on order, it won't be long until you can ask me my thoughts in store. "
- Sean

If bike packing and added comfort is more suited to your riding then we would recommend the Specialized Diverge, see more about it here.
