FIRST LOOK: Trek's X02 'crosser


Trek are now taking the ‘Cross market a bit more seriously

Trek X02

The new XO-2 CX bike is essentially a race spec version of the original XO-1 platform, so the frame itself remains the same, using the Trek Alpha SL tubing (essentially butted 6061 aluminum).

The bike is then upgraded to a cross specific carbon fork, 10 spd Ultegra component group, Bontrager cross specific chainset, Bontrager Race Lite bar and stem (cross specific bar geometry), Carbon seatpost and also upgraded to a Bontrager Race X Lite wheelset (The TdF winning wheelset).
