The CX Race driven design is shown in features such as the smooth top tube for shouldering, compatibility with multiple drivetrain and shifting solutions, and newly optimised clearances for cyclocross race tyres. Even tiny race details like turbo trainer compatibility for warm ups and cool downs by selecting non-though axle rear drop outs, no bare holes to trap mud, no bottle cages, and no excuses.
The Kinesis CXRACE is the superior successor to our Crosslight EVO range.
This cyclocross frame pairs perfectly with TRP brakes, Reynolds wheels, Praxis rings, Turn Cranksets, FMB by Kinesis UK tubular tyres and Kinesis UK Wheels.
We have multiple Fork options such as the new Kinesis CXDISC or CXCANTI and a TRP DISC (15mm DT Swiss Thru Axle).
Canticonnect: Discrete optional brake modules to allow you to run traditional cable cantilever brakes in conjunction with swappable drop outs to fit 130mm wide road hubs. This kit is available as an optional package to bring your current rim brake wheels and components onto this state of the art frame
Inboard disc: The CXRACE is also designed for the new Shimano Flat Mount disc brakes. Mounting a disc caliper on the rear triangle now looks cleaner and there are less opportunities for tangles with course marking tape, sticks or general cyclocross racing debris. The frame is supplied with an adaptor to give you the option to mount a Post Mount caliper.
Disc or Canti fork options: With disc or cantilever braking on the frame, we’ve also developed two versions of our new CXRACE fork to allow you to choose if you want to race with discs, cantilever, or a combination of both. You can even order both forks for maximum versatility.
E-drive ports: Electronic groupset compatibility to seamlessly integrate wiring cleanly into the frameset and giving you a choice of mechanical or electronic groupsets.
Mudshed: Bridgeless chain stays and non-drilled seat stay bracing reduces the areas for mud to build up or work its way into your frame whilst ensuring high rear end stiffness.
Grab and go downtube- the smooth top radius coupled with mud shedding lower dimensions allow racers to quickly grab and shoulder the bike. The CXRACE downtube has been chosen to be stiff enough to cope with the power outputs of world cup racers and to efficiently transfer those watts into speed, regardless of the surface conditions of the course.
Kinesis CrossStay: The rear stay is bridgeless at the bottom bracket and is designed with UCI legal 33mm tubular race tyres in mind to create the optimum clearance for driving through deep mud and reducing mud clogging
Single ring Optimised: The CXRACE was designed with the latest technologies from SRAM and Shimano in mind. The frame is ported for E-drive electronic groupsets with a front mech or with the adoption of 1X systems on both 10/11spd with either a clutch mech, wide narrow ring or chain guide.
I love how the frameset is ready for multiple braking and gearing options, including electronic.
