Fuji’s Cross 1.1 will level the playing field, particularly if that field is full of barriers, sand pits and steep run-ups. The stiff, lightweight aluminum frame rocks an oversize BB86 bottom bracket for efficient power transfer, and a shaped top tube for quick, comfortable shouldering. The carbon fork features a tapered steer tube for better handling in those tricky, off-camber sections, plus it’s disc-specific design gives you unprecedented mud clearance. With the Avid BB7 mechanical brakes, you can push it farther and brake later into the turns, knowing you will stop when you want to stop. With its stiff Oval wheels, the Cross 1.1 will cut through mud, snow and sand, and the SRAM Force/FSA drivetrain will give you confidence to attack, knowing you have the crisp shifting you need to get across the line.
