Grab the hole shot and hold your position throughout the cyclocross course with KHS’s CX500. Its ultra-light T700 carbon frame accelerates effortlessly, while the T700 MSD Carbon CX fork keeps your front end cutting through the crud when the ruts start to freeze. The tough, Weinmann XC-180 rims stand up to crooked bunny hops and choppy corners, which pose little problem thanks to the tenacious Maxxis Mud Wrestler tires. And forget about the pits, because Shimano’s 105 2 x 11-speed drivetrain doesn’t quit when the mud turns to peanut butter. Throw in a set of hydraulic Shimano disc brakes, and you have a rig that not only stands up to punishment, but dishes it right back to the course as you blaze laps to keep the crowd warm.
