The Crossbike - A lighter mountain bike
The cross bikes are generally lighter than their mountainbike colleagues because they are not designed for extreme terrain and downhill trails. So if you are not looking for the extreme, but still want to drive through forests, gravel roads or meadows, you will want to choose a lighter cross bike. Cross bikes are offered by the manufacturers Scott, Ghost and Cube mostly as ladies' version, with a trapezoidal frame, and as men's version, with the straight top tube, and are equipped with high-quality Shimano components and aluminium frames.
The more beautiful touring bike - reduction to the essentials
We are here among ourselves, so we can talk about it: A touring bike doesn't have the highest coolness factor; -) That's why the cross bike is the perfect alternative for a well-groomed family outing. It has similar characteristics to a touring bike, but all the superfluous things like mudguards, luggage racks and lights have been omitted. A reduction to the essentials.
