Highlights

Triple butted and hydroformed 6066 aluminium frame with smooth welding, ‘Smart Entry’ internal cable routing and mudguard mounts. Precise steering courtesy of a tapered head tube. The flat mount rear caliper is mounted on the chainstay which is better for dissipating braking forces but also keeps it protected inside the rear triangle.

All MISSION CX models feature a full carbon tapered fork with a 12 mm bolt through axle. The bolt through improves stiffness for the axle, whilst the tapered carbon steerer increases vertical stiffness, providing very precise steering and enhanced confidence in corners.

All MISSION CX and CYCLO CROSS models are equipped with disc brakes, providing high-performance braking isolated from the weather and muddy conditions due to their location at the wheel's hub/centre. The new MISSION CX models now feature flat mount brake standard for a neat and flush positioning of the brake caliper.

All our MISSION CX models have the ability to add mudguards, making them more versatile, particularly when used as a training or commuting bike. The removable seat stay bridge (not available on aluminium models) stays in place to securely hold the rear mudguard or gets removed for a cleaner look and improved mud clearance.

Our new MISSION CX features a new frame design with an updated geometry giving it plenty of tyre and toe clearance. Both hugely important on twisty and muddy cyclo cross courses. 

Both carbon and aluminium frames (not including the CYCLO CROSS models) feature 12 mm bolt through axle front and rear to provide extra frame stiffness. It’s also very handy for realigning discs when reinstalling a wheel.

Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

Technologies

IMAGE

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

IMAGE

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

F-MOUNT

‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.
