It's right for you if...
You want a single, ridiculously versatile bike that's fast on city streets, stable on rough terrain and fully capable of everything from fast rides to the office to extended tours. You're willing to spend a little bit more for a major upgrade on the parts that make the biggest difference in performance.
The tech you get
A lightweight 200 Series Alpha Aluminium frame with a stable all-road geometry and massive tyre clearance, a carbon fork, 10-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, TRP mechanical disc brakes with bar-mounted Tektro levers, Tubeless Ready rims, extra mounts so you can add accessories like a rack and mudguards, a Blendr stem and a Bontrager Race Lite IsoZone bar that reduces fatiguing road vibrations.
The final word
CrossRip 2 rides like a road bike, but is capable enough to take you from your morning commute to an evening gravel adventure, and it's a fantastic option for towing your little one around in trailer. A lightweight frame, carbon fork and extra mounts for accessories make CrossRip 2 a utilitarian workhouse that rides like a race horse.
