Product Description

Combining the latest-and-greatest technology from Japan with a classically-styled steel frame and fork combo, the Croix’ 30 looks every part the proficient modern classic.

Adding to the Croix’s capable character comes Shimano’s harmoniously integrated 11sp shifter/hydraulic brake package. Dropbar riders are now free to enjoy the power, consistently high performance and industry-leading reliability that mtbers’ have been relishing for years, enabling you to push harder and explore further.

With a beautifully crafted Reynolds 725 frame at its core and all the prerequisite mounts, braze-on’s and accoutrements for any planned adventures, the Croix’ 30 is the versatile road bike that won’t get bogged down in the winter months, comes into its’ own on anything unpaved and copes with fully-laden cross-terrain touring in a way that few bikes can match. The Swiss Army knife of the bicycle world!


Reynolds 725

Classic seamless Chromoly (as above) but heat-treated to boost tensile strength. Think of it as Chromoly on steroids. It’s heated to around 1600F whereby a structural change in the steels’ crystal lattice occurs (a stronger, more uniform orientation). As it’s stronger we can away with using less of it so thinner butts are the order of the day here, helping to achieve a lighter overall frame weight, without compromising strength.

Tubeless-ready hoops

Class-leading weight for the width (410g @24/19mm)and much lighter than the more mtb-focused rims used on CdF’s of old, the Alex Draw 1.9S rims feature a 19mm internal width to offer great support and profile to the 35c Clement rubber, are tubeless ready and utilise offset spoke drilling for equal spoke tensions with disc hub flanges for balanced spoke tensions and a stronger wheel.

Shimano RS505 Hydraulics

Shimano continue to pave the way in regards to hydraulic braking in dropbar format. Their new ST-RS505 shifter units pick up where the ST-RS685 left off, combining conventional mechanical 11sp shifting and dedicated hydraulic braking in a more affordable, accessible package. They offer consistent, powerful braking and exceptional lever modulation all backed-up by Shimano's legendary reliability. A real game changer.

RandoX handlebar

Our new handlebar is the bastard love child between a modern compact drop bar and a traditional randonneur handlebar of old. The acclaimed flared drops (8deg) and backswept tops (6deg) of a traditional rando bar but without the old-school backbreaking drop and reach to give a wider, more natural drop bar position for and increased comfort and control (especially off-road).
