Kinesis UK CX1

The new ultra-adaptable Kinesis CX1 is just as at home while hitting dirt trails for fun, blasting through the local club’s winter training run, hacking along to work or powering through the mud at your local Cyclo Cross race.  The CX1 can handle it all.  It also builds into a capable touring bike, especially for those taking to back lane routes or mixing in some dirt roads.

One thing that doesn’t change with intended use is the responsive nature of the CX1 – it s the true heir of the legendary Crosslight T, which was originally designed as a pure CX race bike, and that heritage shows through.  It is fast handling and fast accelerating, but thanks to the huge tyre clearance and refined fork you will not suffer from the harshness that often comes with a super-stiff alloy bike. Just as importantly,  it also looks great too, and has bags of versatlity thanks to mudguard and rack mounts.

It simply doesn’t matter whether you intend to ride on tarmac, dirt or gravel/hardpack – the Kinesis CX1 can handle it all – whether loaded up with guards or a rack, or stripped back for cross racing, the CX1 is a pleasure to ride. Gone are the days when an all-rounder or mudguarded “winter bike” meant you had to settle for a less than engaging ride!

The Kinesis CX1 has also been designed to offer versatility with regards to the question of braking – should you go disc brakes or cantilever? With the CX1 you can have either.  Or you can build it up with cantilever brakes to start with and then switch to discs later down the line.

Kinesis UK designed the CX1 frame to fit in around your needs, really all you’ve got to choose is the colour. So what’s it to be Red or Blue?

Frame Features

  • Lightweight 6061 double butted tubing
  • Flattened top tube for shoulder carrying
  • Disc and Canti brake compatibility (with optional Canti Kit)
  • Inboard disc Flat Mounts leave room for ‘guard and rack fitting
  • Rack mounts, mudguard eyelets and twin bottle mounts
  • Clearance for a 40mm tyre with full mudguards
  • Super small sizes available for Junior riders

The Kinesis CX1 is compatible with both the Kinesis CXD fork for use with disc brakes and the Kinesis CX Canti fork for cantilever braking.

Both forks are full carbon monocoque fork with stiff UD carbon blades and huge mud clearance to accommodate even the largest CX tubular or high volume commute tyre, and the crown and dropouts are eyeletted for mudguard fitment.  There is a hose clip on the rear of the left hand CXD blade, with caliper attachment being post-mount.

Subtle defined graphics on the forks match the new CX1 frame perfectly.
