TYRE CLEARANCE & MUD
SHEDDING FRAME STAYS
Cyclo-Cross personifies our Formed by the UK stance. Insufficient frame clearance on a wet & muddy race in the middle of December has ruined many a race. The Calver offers exceptional clearance across the full circumference of the tyre by reinforcing the rear triangle and bottom bracket shell of the frame allowing us to remove the chain stay bridge altogether and heighten the seat stay bridge.
With increasing demands on the bikes performance, we have built in a replacable derailleur hanger at the rear of the frame to improve serviceability.
To extend cable life and deliver faultless gear changes, all inner cables are fully sleeved and internally routed inside the frame and fork to ensure protection against water, ice, mud and sand during the race and high-pressure jet washers during pit cleaning laps.
The underside of the top tube is flattened for shouldering the bike easily and as comfortably as possible during running sections.
THRU AXLES FOR
A 100x12mm front thru axle and 142x12mm rear thru axle optimize power transfer and responsivity by making the frame/fork and wheel connection stiffer, stronger and more secure.
Disc brakes are here to stay in Cyclo-Cross! Flat Mount Disc brake options support a clean and compact braking system.
Compatible with the largest range of cranks and less prone to creaking by being isolated from the frameset. This is a benefiting factor to consider when the frame is constantly exposed to mud, sand and grit.
