Retul bikefits only £99 with all cyclecross and gravel bikes
The Croix de Fer Titanium is... a full, no-holds-barred 3AL-2.5V double-butted titanium version of the CdF with all the bells and whistles for people wanting a faster, lighter CdF that retains the cross-terrain capacity for which the CdF is famous.
Shimano’s all-new GRX groupset gives you more gearing and terrain options to go further, faster than ever before. Tube profiles are carefully selected and designed to give the new double-butted titanium platform a stiff and efficient pedalling platform, retaining the same connected feel and 'in-saddle' comfort for which the steel CdF is famed. The fully oval Ø28.6/35mm toptube and cleverly swaged seat tube are all engineered to deliver high levels of comfort. The large diameter Ø44mm oval-rounded trapezoid downtube, beefy S-Bend mountain bike-derived chainstays, tapered Ø56-46mm headtube and Ø34.9mm lower seat tube OD help ensure direct and efficient power transfer and pinpoint sharp handling. You'll also find we've kept the mudguard eyelets, rear rack mounts and generous tyre clearances that help enable it to take on many different incarnations. The one bike to rule them all?!
