You know how it is - you're out for a ride and you just can't help taking the long route home, or trying out the turning you've never been down before. If that sounds like you, may we introduce you to the Cross EXC? A high-quality, lightweight aluminium chassis, superb RockShox Paragon Gold air suspension fork and Shimano XT transmission with hydraulic disc brakes mean you've everything you need at your fingertips for longer, more adventurous rides. Our engineering team's approach to the frame was uncompromising - their goal was to make the most efficient, stable and comfortable touring frame possible. To that end, they borrowed technologies and design cues from our mountain bike range. So, for example, the double-butted aluminium tubeset reduces weight without sacrificing strength, while the tapered head tube increases rigidity and steering accuracy - and Smooth Welding technology keeps the whole thing incredibly neat.

Whether you're inspired by the idea of more adventurous routes or just want a bike that's as reliable as it is fun to ride, choose the Cross EXC... and ride like you mean it.
