Cyclocross racing is tough – it’s kind of the whole point of it, after all. That’s why, with the Cross Race Pro, we chose Shimano’s off-road-specific GRX 2×11 transmission. It’s got the range, precision and durability to handle tough racing in the mud. Paired with Shimano 105 disc brakes for all-weather stopping control, it’s an unbeatable combination. Throw in the lightweight, ‘cross-specific aluminium frame, carbon fork and CUBE wheelset with Newmen hubs, and you’re onto a winner.
