Details

Specialized Crosstrail Mechanical Disc 2018

This Specialized Crosstrail is a best buy in versatile commuter hybrid bikes with suspension forks and disc brakes to make it capable on light trails.

Specialized Crosstrail Overview
As is the Specialized way, the Crosstrail concept has evolved and been refined, so their 2018 models are better designed than ever with features borrowed from their finest four-figure road and and mountain bikes such as:

  • Its confidence-inspiring perfectly aligned Specialized A1 premium aluminum frame will be among the lightest at its price point
  • Internal gear cable routing makes for a cleaner finish that accentuates the frame's gorgeous paint job
  • The flat-disc brake mounts are much neater and lighter weight than first-generation disc brake frame bosses

For all these improvements, every Crosstrail lives up to Specialized's original ambition - that is to create a trail-capable commuter bike.

  • To this end, every Crosstrail rolls on 700x38 tyres from one of the world's most respected bicycle tyre companies - Specialized
  • These tyres are faster than off-road knobblies and more forgiving than 23-28mm-wide road bike tyres
  • Pannier rack and mudguard compatibility make a Crosstrail perfect for commuting, touring and general riding
  • The suspension fork offers shock absorption that helps make the bike suitable for light trail riding
  • Brain technology means the fork's 60mm travel is only active when required and is automatically locked out for rigid fork-like efficiency on smooth roads

To illustrate the extra care Specialized take, they get the smallest details just right. For instance, the Crosstrail Mechanical Disc's wheel rims are double wall and the rear freehub takes a cassette rather than a freewheel to help ensure greater strength and longevity. Even the chain is specially selected for its anti-corrosion coating to help ensure minimum maintenance and maximum service life for its wide-range Shimano 3x7 drivetrain.

It's little wonder that Crosstrail bikes have been consistent best sellers since their introduction. If you are looking for one bike that works well over the widest spectrum of conditions, a Specialized Crosstrail is well worth considering.

Here's how Specialized describe their Crosstrail Mechanical Disc
The key to hitting your fitness goals is to mix things up a bit, as monotony can be the demise of any workout routine, and that's why the Crosstrail with hassle-free Mechanical Disc Brakes comes equipped with everything you need to start exploring on- and off-road.

It features a light and tough A1 Premium Aluminium frame that's been designed with our Fitness Geometry, so it will fit and feel like a dream right out of the box. Not stopping there, we also included a suspension fork that successfully soaks up road imperfections when the going gets rough.

Add in a selection of strong, no-fuss components and hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and you'll be finding yourself spending more time riding and less time bleeding your brakes.

  • Working with our Body Geometry team, we designed a frame that strikes the optimal balance between comfort and efficiency.
  • The A1 SL Premium aluminium construction pairs weight savings with rugged durability, while the rack, fender, and disc mounts give you an incredibly versatile package.
  • Enjoy greater control over varying terrain with a custom, easy-adjust, Multi-Circuit Damping fork with 60mm of travel that's tuned for the trail.
  • Mechanical disc brakes provide reliable stopping power and hassle-free maintenance, so you'll be able to spend more time riding and less time adjusting those brakes.
