The Specialized Crosstrail is a versatile hybrid bike that rides comfortably on mixed terrain. It is perfect for fitness training, daily commuting, and weekend leisure rides.
The Specialized Crosstrail is a light bike. Its lightweight will help you ride uphill and accelerate faster. If you have to use stairs to get to your apartment or office, carrying the bike won't be too much of a problem because it is not heavy.
The bike has good suspension, which makes cycling on the road or trail, smooth and comfortable.
The Crosstrail has a beautiful design that is pleasing to look at. The internal cabling also gives the bicycle great aesthetics.
The crankset could start creaking after a few months of using the bike. You could have the crankset taken apart and screwed back again, or changed to deal with the noise.
The Specialized Crosstrail is available in only conservative colors. So if you want a flashy bike, you might have to get a new paint job done once you buy the bicycle.
The Specialized Crosstrail is available in four models that sell at different prices. The four models are:
All the bike models offer a comfortable ride on multiple surfaces. So whether you ride the bike on gravel trails or smooth tarmac, you're assured of a smooth ride.
Some of the features the Specialized Crosstrail bicycles come equipped with include an A1 Premium Aluminum Frame, Shimano Altus 24 Speed Drivetrain, an SR Suntour NEX Suspension Fork with a lockout, Trigger Sport Reflect 700 x 38c Tires, and Promax Solve Hydraulic Disc Brakes.
The bikes are available in five sizes, small, medium, large, and extra-large and extra-extra-large.
