Whether you’re after the perfect commuter bike or something that will give you on and off-road flexibility, the CDA is a bike that has your back even if that country back road turns into a gravel track or worse.
Keeping the same Shimano Sora and Claris groupset options as last year, both CDA models stay under that £1,000 price point and get a nice little upgrade in the form of Clement X’Plor 40c tyres.
An escape route via the road-less-travelled or the near-perfect commuter with disc brakes and full length mudguard capabilities?
The CdA blurs the line between the more traditional CX features and a modern Sportive/endurance road geometry – a bonefide modern day Frankenbike with long, stable wheelbase, generous clearances and BB drop, large volume tyres, and an accessible, relaxed geometry. Combined with the cavernous tyre clearances, it helps to ensure that you’re only ever a simple tyre swap away from knobbly tyred off-road action.
