Wherever there is competition, wherever there is a battle for victory, there will always be a Pinarello. Even in the world of cyclocross, their past is full of victories. Today they return with a superb CX bike derived directly from this heritage—it’s called Crossista.
In designing the Crossista Pinarello worked hard to instill the perfect combination of maximum performance and versatility. They aimed to maintain the aerodynamic elements that characterize all their bikes, keeping in mind the mix of surfaces and the increasingly fast race fields of modern cyclocross. The Crossista’s carefully chosen geometry makes the frame very precise when entering a corner as well as reactive at the exit, guaranteeing maximum performance on technical courses. The frame has been developed to have the largest possible room around the tires to prevent mud from building up. Additionally, small but important details have been added to improve its performance even in slower sections of the course. For example, the top tube has an asymmetrical section that adapts to the ergonomics of the shoulder to facilitate carrying the bike, while the thinner section of the rear Flex Stays ensures maximum traction in the roughest terrain. Built with high-end carbon, with internal cable routing and options for 1X or 2X setups, the Crossista successfully maintains the driving feeling and absolute value that is typical of Pinarello.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
