Highlights

6061 double butted and technoformed aluminium.

Normally, wheels are attached with quick release hub axles for easy removal – essential for fast wheel changes in the Tour de France but not so desirable when leaving your bike in the city. All models feature security hub axles which are undone with a wrench.

All CROSSWAY URBAN models come with disc brakes; Disc brakes offer superior braking in all weathers compared to conventional rim brakes as the braking surface is positioned near the centre of the wheel awayfrom puddles and dirt.

The URBAN range comes complete with mudguards and a kickstand, so you are ready for anything the moment you leave the store.

All CROSSWAY 100 up to XT-EDITION models feature tyres with reflective strips on their sidewalls, improving visibility on the road.

The biggest difference between the two CROSSWAY families is the suspension. The URBAN range is equipped with a rigid fork which saves significant weight – on the CROSSWAY URBAN 500 and XT-EDITION, we use an even lighter carbon fork instead of the already lightweight aluminium fork. The URBAN range doesn’t require adjustable stems or suspension seat posts, again reducing weight.

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.

F-MOUNT

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

IMAGE

C-MOUNT

‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.

POST-MOUNT DISC

Mounting the disc brake caliper directly saves weight as we do away with the adapter and 2 additional bolts. With less parts, set-up and maintenance are easier.
