A very special edition build of the Croix’ to commemorate our 10th year anniversary. Limited to one, small drop and featuring SRAM’s beautifully simplified Rival1 one-by drivetrain, never has the ‘less is more’ mantra felt more apt.
New SRAM Rival1 based drivetrain sees their much-acclaimed, tried-and-tested 1X drivetrain paired with dedicated hydraulic disc brakes and applied to dropbar format. And why the hell not? Sure, for certain, more road-based applications, the jumps between gears may be a little big to fine tune cadence to terrain, but for the type of riding the CdF is aimed at?...We think the simplified, lightweight wide-range 1x11 gearing represents the perfect match!
We know it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s good reason why 1x drivetrains are fast becoming the staple enthusiast drivetrain of choice in the mtb world; lighter, cheaper, increased clearances, lower maintenance, but most of all, simpler; not worrying about front shifts, bad gear combos or which chainring is going to be best for the next section of trail - leaving you free to simply enjoy the ride.
