The whole point of a bike, as far as we're concerned, is to inspire adventure. The Cross Pro's rugged design and versatile equipment means that you won't have to turn around in a dead-end street if the way ahead is a dirt road - and isn't that exactly the kind of thing that adventure is all about? Borrowing features inspired by our mountain bike frames, the Cross Pro's light chassis boasts double-butted tubes for lighter weight, a tapered head tube for precise steering and internally routed gear cables for long-lasting, smooth gear shifts. It's also RILink carrier compatible, with mounting points hidden out of the way inside the rear dropouts - a superb system that allows for full mudguards and a luggage carrier to be fitted neatly and unobtrusively. The easily adjustable, air-sprung RockShox fork smooths out the lumps and bumps of adventurous travel, while powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes ensure you're always in control. And, of course, we selected Shimano's super-reliable, easy-to-use Deore 10-speed components for a wide range of gears to tackle any situation. It's the Swiss Army Knife of bikes - ready to take on anything, wherever you find yourself.
