The Crosslight Pro6 is not the first disc compatible, Cyclocross race frame that we have produced, in fact the first ‘Crosslight Pro’ [circa 2001] had disc mounts on the frame and fork because I thought it made sense to keep your braking surfaces out of the muddy grinding paste.
The Pro6 is a race bike first and foremost and uses our proven race geometry. It’s designed to come out in front after an hour of elbow to elbow pedalling, vaulting and running. In addition, it has eyelets to allow the fitment of ‘guards, rack and bottles if you are that way inclined. It’s not supposed to be a ‘Jack of all trades’, but it is designed to be practical and adaptable as well as FAST.
It is disc brake only [no canti-bosses]. Discs make sense for CX, they mean consistent braking throughout the race and mean your expensive deep section carbon rims will last longer! Braking is not of utmost importance during a CX race, but with the advent of more disc equipped CX bikes, I can see out-braking into corners being used to far greater effect.
