With nimble handling and very low weight, the Crockett 5 Disc will impress on the 'cross course or on the road!
The Crockett 5 Disc was built with cyclocross racing in mind. That being said, all of the Crockett models serve any rider well if they're looking for a spring training bike, lightweight commuter, or "low-intensity gravel" bike. The Crockett 5 Disc is the most affordable machine of the series, built around a hydroformed 300 Series Alpha aluminum frame and all-carbon fork. The frame's tubes have been hydroformed, keeping weight low and torsional strength high. The top tube is flattened, making for easier shouldering on muddy run-ups. Control Freak internal cable routing keeps the Crockett 5 Disc looking clean as well as protecting the rear derailleur cable from dirt and water. A tapered head tube anchors the large down tube effectively, adding an extra level of handling precision during high-speed corners and descents. The BB86.5 press-fit bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke; a critical attribute when charging uphill towards the finish line. Out back, the Crockett 5 Disc is equipped with an adjustable Stranglhold 12mm thru-axle rear dropout. 15mm of fore-aft adjustability lets the rider tweak the Crockett 5's wheelbase for improved mud clearance or a more nimble feel. Want to switch to single-speed? The Stranglehold dropout is perfect for adjusting chain tension. The 12mm thru-axle also enhances the strength of the bike's rear triangle, reducing lateral flex in the frame. The Crockett 5's IsoSpeed Cross fork is not only light (due to being a fully carbon fiber build from steerer to dropouts), but also soaks up fatiguing vibration. Flat-mount disc brake caliper installation on the frame and fork helps reduce overall frameset weight, but also enhances brake lever feedback and improves pad wear. A 12mm thru-axle at the fork dropouts adds an extra layer of handling precision.
The Crockett 5 Disc needed a drivetrain that could put up with muddy conditions while still getting the job done. Enter SRAM's Rival 1 components.
SRAM's single-ring Rival 1 dual-control levers and rear derailleur make for a lightweight, low maintenance drivetrain. 11-speed shifting across an 11-32T SRAM cassette is done with a single "DoubleTap" button on the right Rival 1 lever. A single 40T chainring is mounted on an alloy Praxis Alba crankset, offering low rotating weight and excellent torsional strength when putting the power down. A set of tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Affinity Disc wheels are wrapped with race-ready 700x32c Bontrager CX3 Team Issue tires, bringing boatloads of traction on loose surfaces, gravel and mud.
TRP's cable-operated Spyre disc brakes help with speed control in all conditions, wet or dry. Bontrager also supplies the Montrose Comp saddle, durable alloy 2-bolt seatpost, accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem and alloy VR-C road handlebar.
With all this going for it, the Crockett 5 Disc is more than ready for the mud and dirt. Are you?
