Cross country mountain bikes are designed to tackle some really varied terrain, while being as light as possible so as not to hold the racers back on climbs. We’re taking an in depth look into the technology used and the sacrifices made to shave off those grams.
Wheel sizes, dropper posts, hardtail or full suspension, cross country racers use a lot of different components to make the difference out on the race track. What do you think would make the most difference to your riding? Let us know in the comments.
