This speedy youth bike can be ridden in a variety of ways. It’s designed to help young riders feel confident while riding with drop bars, and is versatile enough for road, dirt, or even a first cyclocross race. Built around a lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame with youth-specific compact geometry, the TCX Espoir 26 has a low stand-over height that gives smaller riders the confidence and control to go fast and have fun. Its 26-inch wheels, short-reach handlebars and powerful disc brakes give it a confident ride. Perfect for family day at the cyclocross races or backroad adventures, it can tackle road, dirt and everything in between. Lightweight High-quality ALUXX aluminum frame delivers a responsive ride quality that makes it easier for young riders to climb, accelerate and corner. Youth-specific design Low standover height, short-reach handlebars, and comfortable saddle for young riders. Geared for hills Special drivetrain with a wide range of gears makes it easier for young riders to tackle challenging terrain.
The working man's steed, the Jake the Snake is the go-to bike for Cyclocross racers and hardcore commuters alike. The legendary Jake the Snake features race-driven geometry in a tough yet light aluminum frame, steers with a full carbon flat mount disc fork, and is accompanied by tubeless-ready wheels wrapped with Maxxis All Terrane tires, a SRAM Apex 1x11 drivetrain, and TRP hydraulic disc brakes. Kona 6061 Aluminum Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. Tough, durable, and light alloys, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing's wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so we can fine-tune a particular frame's strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. Tapered Head Tube More girth at the bottom of the head tube better distributes shock force, prolonging the bearing life of the headset itself and eliminating brake shudder, while providing confident steering performance. The inherent strength of its triangular design also means a stronger steering position and improved balance, giving the rider more control in rough terrain. A zero-stack, tapered head tube also puts strength where the load is going—into the lower headset cup—maximizing bearing durability where it's needed. Tubeless Compatible Rims Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x142mm Axle 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer dimension of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
When the Stigmata was resurrected in 2015, we fused a number of MTB standards and design features to create our spin on the modern CX bike. Nowadays, the internally routed disc brakes, generous tire clearance, and thru-axles approach that made the Stigmata famous have become more of a norm for the gravel-curious and free-roading crowd, so we took a fresh look at which standards the riders of tomorrow wanted access to today. Threaded bottom brackets remain a perennial favorite across our entire line. The Stigmata also has your ass covered with neat, hidden fender mounts, and three water bottle mounts that highlight the Stigmata's ever-widening scope of purpose. Deeper adventures, bigger tires perhaps? The frame now clears up to a 45mm 700c or a 2.1" 650B tire. Marry the latter to our Force/X01 AXS mashup kit, and you've got yourself the kind of drop-bar singletrack rallycat we can all get on board with. And, when it comes to good old-fashioned off-road etiquette, the Stigmata's had some coaching at the Highball school of stiffness, handling, and offroad feel. The carbon layup and frame design produce a ride so law-abiding you'd think HR had sent it on a compliance training course. Geometry plays a big part here too, so we've made tweaks to improve handling for smaller riders and reduce toe overlap. The reworking of the 52/54cm frames means the Stigmata now comfortably suits riders from 5'3" and up. Meanwhile, different fork offsets—50mm for the 52-54cm sizes, and 45mm for the 56-61cm sizes—help ensure your little piggies don't go to market on the front wheel. Topped off with tidy details like 12mm front axle and flat-mount brakes, the Stigmata is designed to let you decide whatever the heck you want this category to be. - Frame: Carbon CC Cyclocross - 700c x 45mm tire clearance - Rear Derailleur: Rival 1 Long Cage, 11spd - Brakes: SRAM Rival
Elbow-to-elbow battles for position. Screaming spectators. Sprints for victory. This pro-level cyclocross bike has seen it all and has been on pro podiums at the highest level. With a lightweight composite frameset and integrated components, it’s a champ in all conditions. When you’re launching an attack, chasing the break or railing turns in sketchy cyclocross conditions, every advantage counts. Pros settle for nothing less than perfection, and this is the machine that meets their demands. The TCX Advanced Pro features a superlight Advanced-grade composite frame that’s handcrafted with race-proven geometry and asymmetrical chainstays for optimal power transfer. The innovative D-Fuse composite seatpost, first pioneered for this very bike, adds compliance without adding weight, so you can pedal smoothly no matter how rough the course. Other innovations include a lightweight composite WheelSystem and tubeless tires right out of the box, flat-mount disc brakes, and a 12mm front and rear thru-axle for total control cornering, sprinting or climbing in all conditions. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Light and agile - Advanced-grade composite frame offers a perfect balance of light weight for climbing and accelerating, plus stiffness for precise handling on rough cyclocross terrain. Total control - Integrated disc brake technology with flat mounts and thru-axle hubs, combined with tubeless ready Giant WheelSystem, delivers added control in variable conditions and all types of weather. Smooth ride quality - D-shaped composite seatpost reduces shocks and vibrations, minimizing fatigue so you can stay strong to the finish.
