XLA-SL

overview

XLA-SL Aluminium Cyclocross Bike

XLA Aluminium Cyclocross Bike

The XLA-SL  delivers the easy handling and rideability of our award-winning XLS carbon Cyclocross bike but at a fraction of the price. The XLA-SL provides poised performance with nimble handling, impressive traction for powering up the inclines and will give you the confidence you need to push, further, harder and faster to take on the competition. Sure, a full carbon frameset weighs a little less but if you're looking for the sweet spot in price performance this is it.

Designed around a carbon bladed fork with generous mud clearance, built to take powerful hydraulic disk brakes and able to work with 1X or multi-chainring drivetrains the XLA-SL is the perfect Cyclocross bike for any rider looking to get the very best value for money. You'll probably like it so much that you'll start riding it into work every day- we did!
