Looking to get dirty? The LOOK X-85 is a carbon cyclocross frame utilizing ?Tube-to- Tube? technology assuring durability and lightness (at 1150 grams in M size). LOOK has taken all that they have learned over the years to create a cross bike that is both stiff and responsive, while maintaining compliance for a balanced ride. The X-85 is designed for disc brakes (compatible with 160mm rotors), cable or hydraulic brakes can be mounted. To assure compatibility with a large number of wheels the axle spacing of the rear wheel is 135mm. All 29? MTB wheels with disc hubs are thus compatible. - Available in XS, SM, M, L, XL, - Colors: White/Red For assembly details please contact us by phone. Contact information shown below. We are currently working on the compatiblity rules for this frame. Thank you for your patience.

Another benefit is the ride can be optimized using carbon fiber without having to accomodate stiff cantilever brake posts. Continue reading →
