At the heart of the 2021 Croix de Fer 40 is the ever reassuring Reynolds 725 steel frame and fork, unrivalled for comfort and control.
Adding to the Croix’s capable character comes Shimano’s new gravel specific GRX drivetrain, shifters and hydraulic disc brakes, designed to offer a wider gear ratio and powerful braking for when the going gets steep and you're fully loaded. Combine this with the tubless ready light rims and fat tyres (the Croix 40 has clearance for up to 45mm tyres), dropbar riders are now free to enjoy the power, consistently high performance and industry-leading reliability that mtbers’ have been relishing for years, enabling you to push harder and explore further.
The Croix de Fer 40 has all the prerequisite mounts, braze-on’s and accoutrements for any planned adventures, the supremely competent "do everything" bike that won’t get bogged down in the winter months, comes into its own on anything unpaved and copes with fully-laden cross-terrain touring in a way that few bikes can match.
