Specialized S-Works Crux review

Leon PoultneyNov 2021

Tipping the scales at just 7.25kg, Specialized says its latest Crux is the lightest gravel bike in the world, but can it justify its £10,750/$12,000

Pros
  • The lightest gravel bike out there

  • Phenomenal drivetrain

  • Nimble handling

  • A capable climber

Cons
  • That price

  • Too nice to smash around trails?

  • Lack of mounting points
