When only the best is good enough and you want your bike to last a lifetime, it’s got to be titanium.
Our unashamed dream do-it-all machine, the Croix de Fer Ti comes with a full carbon fork to drop over a kilogram against its steel counterparts.
It’s not just weight though – the sublimely smooth ride quality and unmistakable zing you get from any quality titanium build is present and correct. Not to mention the fact that the raw finish is a thing of unmatched beauty.
Tube profiles are carefully selected and designed to give the new double-butted titanium platform a stiff and efficient pedalling platform, retaining the same connected feel and 'in-saddle' comfort for which the steel CdF is famed.
The fully oval Ø28.6/35mm toptube and cleverly swaged seat tube are all engineered to deliver high levels of comfort.
The large diameter Ø44mm oval-rounded trapezoid downtube, beefy S-Bend mountain bike-derived chainstays, tapered Ø56-46mm headtube and Ø34.9mm lower seat tube OD help ensure direct and efficient power transfer and pinpoint sharp handling.
Major updates to the cornerstone of our range carry over to the titanium model and 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, rack and guard mounts and fixings for Anything Cages on the forks complete the package.
Finish it with carbon wheels, electronic shifting and ti finishing kit for a lightweight, high speed go-anywhere explorer that gives away nothing to comfort.
Or go for something more understated – or eclectic – the choice is yours!
