The airy Specialized Crux has an astonishing frame weight of 725 grams. That’s nearly equivalent to a full bike bottle. Wow! Specialized applied the ingenious Aethos frame advancements to the Crux to create the lightest gravel bike in the world.

And while some of the geometry matches the Aethos road bike––crank length, bar width, reach, and seat tube angle––most of the geometry has been engineered for optimal gravel performance. Overall, the Crux is longer and taller.

The Crux geometry’s longer reach achieves a balanced distribution of weight, giving riders stability at speed. Thanks to a race-inspired fit and geometry, the Crux’s agile handling inspires confidence on loose descents and while racing to the finish line. Top performance is at the heart of the Crux’s stunning design elements. Rider First Engineered means that every Crux, in every size, upholds the same ride quality. 

Don't hold back with tire choice––the Crux has enough clearance for 47c tires, adding another level of capability to a wide range of gravel routes and trail conditions. 

All four Crux builds feature a lightweight FACT carbon frame plus SRAM drivetrain and brakes for efficiency, control, and ultimate stopping power.
