THE ULTIMATE WORKHORSE, OUR CROIX DE FER 725 DELIVERS A REFINED RIDE QUALITY AND FOR A MODEST WEIGHT PENALTY, KEEPS THE PRICING KEEN.
Whether you’re spending the money you’ve saved on a fancier wheelset, or a long weekend away on the bike, the CdF has got you covered. Reynolds mandrel butt and heat-treat this alloy so that thinner walls can be used compared to non-heat-treated steels. Standard QR dropouts mean your 9mm wheelsets can keep turning for another few years – and the practicalities don’t end there. A trio of bottle cage mounts and threaded bottom bracket combine to make this Croix de Fer our benchmark model.
