The hashtags tell us ‘cross is here, so we went out to our local CX course and tested a few must-haves for your fall racing season.
For warm-up laps, Endura’s MT500 II trousers keep out mud and moisture so you’re dry on the starting line. Velocio’s ES Cyclocross suit capitalizes on an under-utilized earth tone for a surprisingly pleasing aesthetic, but more importantly, it’s toasty warm during chilly races.
On the hard goods front, we spent a lot of time on Blue’s Norcross EX and appreciated its nimble handling and almost-excellent build. But we found some shortcomings off the line and on the scale.
And finally, Easton’s EC90SL crankset offers chainring swapping versatility in a lightweight package.
