Croix de Fer 10

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 conception.

Whilst it’s nice to know what a particular bike is ‘for’, we feel applying a specific label to a bike as versatile as the Croix’ hamstrings it somewhat, pigeonholing it to one specific use, when, in reality the scope is much, much wider. As such, it’s a whole lot easier to list what it ‘can be’ rather than what ‘it is’… Want to mount front and rear racks to the CdF and use it as a lightweight tourer? No problem. Want to swap-in Schwalbe Marathon’s, fit ‘guards and use it as daily urban commuter? No problem? Want to leave it in stock guise and use it as a mixed terrain do-it-all? No problem; the Croix’ will admirably turn its hand to all.

Never has one bike been more worthy of the ‘one bike, many hats’ crown. Croix de Fer - supremely capable, infinitely adaptable.

Features

RandoX handlebar

Our new handlebar is the bastard love child between a modern compact drop bar and a traditional randonneur handlebar of old. The acclaimed flared drops (8deg) and backswept tops (6deg) of a traditional rando bar but without the old-school backbreaking drop and reach to give a wider, more natural drop bar position for and increased comfort and control (especially off-road). The ‘aero’ flattened tops might save a bit drag but, more importantly, provide a supremely comfy perch for your palms.

Rack & 'guard ready

Generous clearances and eyelets for full-length mudguards and front & rear racks mean the 'Croix morphs quickly and effortlessly into an all-weather load carrier.

Tubeless-ready hoops

New Alex Draw 1.9P rims are considerably lighter (@ 450g) than the more mtb-focused rims used on CdF’s of old (-40g per rims vs. XD Elite MY15 model), featuring a suitably wide 19mm internal width to offer great support and profile to the 35c Clement rubber, tubeless-ready bead hook and offset spoke drilling for equal spoke tensions with disc hub flanges for balanced spoke tensions and a stronger wheel.

34T low gear

Why no matching Sora rear derailluer?! The simple reason is that the Acera unit (handily using the same cable-pull ratio) is rated to handle a bigger 34T max sprocket size. As such the CdF 10 now sports a wall-climbingly low 1:1 (34/34T) low gear, giving you a smaller climbing gear to help with laiden voyages into the unknown.
