THE ULTIMATE STEEL CROIX
New to the range in 2021, our full-build Reynolds 853 Croix de Fer 50 aims to hit every mark.
Probably the most popular and widely used of all of Reynolds’ performance-orientated steel offerings; 853 hits that sweet spot of performance, weight and cost. Accept no imitations – every tube is 853 creating that unmistakable ride quality!
It’s matched to our full carbon CGR1 fork that saves around 900-grams over the steel variant, keeping weight low, handling keen and featuring bottle/Anything Cage mounting points.
We’ve continued that trend throughout the build, using quality components that are proven and will stand the test of time.
Shimano’s GRX groupset has become a go-to for gravel bikes, providing dependable shifting, myriad gearing options and longevity at a variety of performance levels.
We’ve chosen their RX600 double chainset with 46/30T chainrings, paired to an 11-34T cassette, which keeps the Croix competitive on road and off.
The shifters, hydraulic brake callipers and derailleurs all come from the top-tier RX-810 lineup, saving a little weight and delivering increased shifting and braking performance.
Major updates to the cornerstone of our range include the ability to run 42mm tyres on the provided 700c rims, or 47mm tyres on a 650B wheelset.
Thru-axles front and rear, tubeless ready rims and tyres, flat mount disc brakes, a third bottle mount and rack and guard mounts complete the package.
