There’s an endless combination of tarmac, dirt, gravel, and pavement out there. Wherever you want to go, we’ve got the bike for you. Purpose-built for taking that unexplored fork in the road, a mixed surface bike is your fast pass to fun and freedom.
Originally hailing from the wet, bleak, and windswept plains of Belgium and France, cyclocross has gone international and is now a cherished staple of the racing calendar in autumn and winter. Short and intense, cyclocross is all about strength, grit, and bike handling chops. Our cyclocross line includes the bike that won the world championship two years in a row, as well as models for all skill levels. You’ll never have so much fun getting dirty.
The F5x breaks the mold when it comes to performance and perception. The most value-laden carbon model in the Fx Series, the F5x features a UHC Advanced + TeXtreme carbon frame and fork, making for a stiff and efficient pedaling platform that also reduces the rough hits and chatter found on the roughest cyclocross race courses. Built with a Shimano 105 drivetrain for smooth shifting and dependability, the F5x also comes with tubeless-ready wheels and Schwalbe X-One tires to help reduce flats and allow you to dial in your preferred tire pressure for the muddiest and wettest conditions.
