Can’t imagine lining up alloy or steel next to the carbon in your collection? Go direct and check out Fezzari’s Foré Cyx 1.0.
A carbon frame and fork, the Foré Cyx (pronounced “siKs”) features through axles, an impact-resistant layup, shoulder-friendly tube shapes and geometry designed for the race course, but capable of just about any off-road adventure.
A Shimano 105 drivetrain, FSA cranks and cockpit combine with Tektro mechanical discs for a budget-conscious build, while Stan’s No Tubes Grail Team wheels and Hutchinson tubeless-ready Piranha tires give the bike real racecourse credibility.
