  • A Cyclocross Frame. New from Predator

    The latest Predator model to join the Power Hungry Carbon Family, the Predator 'Cross. As a cyclocross frame, it represents our first foray into this fast-growing category—and it's already moving toward the front with several bikes already sold through a pre-pre-release. As a fully customizable, hand-built frame, the 'Cross is designed to be stiff enough to handle the explosive power required to dominate the sport of cyclocross while remaining light enough to effortlessly carry it over the barriers and run-ups. Predator fans will recognize many of the features; a press-fit BB30 bottom bracket shell, tapered head tube (1.125″ to 1.5″), optional internal Di2 cabling as well as an optional integrated 34.9 (OD) seat mast. This fully-custom ‘Cross frame is now available for purchase on the website, with a starting price of just $3,995. Painted in a stunning metallic orange, the Predator 'Cross featured in the photos is our initial prototype. Frame weight is just 1.080g (2.38lbs)—or less than the weight of a box of oatmeal. Predator did its homework when designing and building the new 'Cross frame. We worked closely with seasoned cyclocross racers and top mechanics, all while doing our research to learn which design innovations netted the best cyclocross bikes. As a result, the Predator 'Cross is built with the strength and care needed to help each rider out perform his or her competitors. Each and every 'Cross frame is hand built right here in Southern California (like all Predator bikes and accessories) at our Santa Monica facility. Like our other recently released models, the 'Cross features a 3D carbon lay-up in all of the joints. Predator Cycling is one of the first bicycle manufacturers in the world to use it, calling it their “Trifecta” process, Predator uses the highest grades of raw carbon fiber along side the finest epoxies available. Each joint is laid with three different types of bond—one on top of the next—giving the frame unparalleled strength and durability. Unidirectional carbon fiber is applied first, then each joint is wrapped and lastly coated with a final layer. Throughout the layup process, all ‘Cross frames are endowed with both chemical and mechanical bonds in every single joint—maximizing stiffness, strength and durability, without compromising on total frame weight. The Predator 'Cross frame follows the release of Predator Road, all a part of Predator's new Carbon Line, this will be followed up with the release of the new Predator Track, which is coming up in the next few weeks. The new line is expected to be expanded in early 2012 with 3 additional bikes. No spoilers, you'll have to check back here to see what we have upcoming.
