Cyclocross Bikes is a bike racing discipline that involves riding a drop-handlebar bike on a short, off-road course, usually in a park or similar. Courses include features like mud, sandpits, barriers and steps or slopes too steep to ride, forcing riders to have to pick up their bike and run.

A cyclocross bike is therefore designed specifically for this form of racing, and its design serves the purpose of going fast, whilst being able to be carried when the terrain demands. However, the practicality of cyclocross bikes, with bigger tyres and better clearances can also make them great for exploring away from the tarmac, and they share a number of similarities to gravel bikes, which typically have more relaxed geometry. So, if you’re thinking of spending long days in the saddle on a mixture of surfaces you might want to check out our range of gravel bikes instead.
