Croix De Fer 10
The original genre-defying, boundary-blurring bestseller, now available in a more affordable Flat Bar version. It 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. The Cdf 10 for 2021 has Shimano 9 speed gearing with a wide ratio 46/30 double chainring combination, efficient mechanical disc brakes, light tubeless compatible rims, and fat 700x40c tubeless ready tyres for maximum comfort. It also has enough mounting points to just about pack the kitchen sink.
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 tourer? No problem. Want to fit ‘guards and use it as daily urban commuter? Easy. Want to leave it in stock guise and use it as a mixed terrain do-it-all? Of course. 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.
