Specialized 22 Crux Comp Carbon

📸 View our gallery of studio photographs here in the 'Satin Smoke/Black/Cool Grey' colour scheme. That too, of the Crux in the wild!

The Crux is the lightest gravel bike in the world, with the exceptional capability of massive tyre clearance and performance gravel geometry. It’s the ultimate expression of gravel performance.

The Crux Comp Carbon comes spec'd with a reliable and smooth-shifting SRAM Rival 1 hydraulic disc groupset, tough DT Swiss G540 Disc wheels and tubeless ready, 700x38mm Pathfinder Pro tyres that smooth out the rutted corrugations and dust of Molesworth or Colville alike.

  • The Comp Carbon uses the 825g, 10r FACT carbon fibre frame. Taken are 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, floats over jagged terrain, and weighs less than a full bottle in your cage. Watch here, the engineers tell of how the Crux came to be.
  • Tyre clearance for up to 47mm on 700c wheels and/2.1” on 650B wheels respectively. More clearance means more capability. With Diverge-level tyre clearance, Crux takes you anywhere you can imagine, at full gas.

  • Responsive: Nimble, supple, and reactive. Responsive at the pedals. Supple in the saddle. With performance gravel geometry and race-influenced fit inspired by Crux's iconic history in ‘cross.
