We've utilised our wealth of experience in carbon frame construction to give you the XLS. The XLS's flat top tube provides both in-ride comfort but also comes in handy when chucking the bike over your shoulder when clambering up and over those testing obstacles. The tapered headtube increases strength and stiffness up front, thus improving handling too.

Equipped with Shimano's brilliant Ultegra groupset this XLS comes with a race focussed 11-32t cassette and a compact FSA Omega 50/34t chainset. perfect for the busy streets it'll also tackle any CX route.

In cyclocross braking is obviously an important aspect. Stopping performance needs to be instantaneous, preventing skidding and chattering in wet conditions. That's why the use of disc brakes has become increasingly prevalent in cyclocross, and although many of the pro's are reluctant to join the cross disc revolution, everyone else, released from the constraints of sponsorship, can enjoy the superior stopping power. The XLS uses Avid BB5 mechanical discs, famed for their braking prowess, they won't let you down in any conditions. So, whilst all those canti' lovers are trying in vain to control themselves round those slippery corners, you can almost take braking for granted. There's a reason why those on the dark side (mountain bikers) use discs; they're just simply better.

Wheelset: Gipiemme Roccia Disk. Gippeme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gippemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it's equally at home on our cyclocross bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect do it all 700c wheelset.

There you have it, quality, race-ready carbon frameset, reliable Shimano shifting and disc stopping prowess. We've built you the perfect commuter bike, that'll also double as a seriosuly capable CX bike at the weekends. it's the perfect n+1.
