But it's not only in winter that driving makes fun
It doesn't have to be bad weather to ride a cyclocross bike. Of course, in the summer when the heat is on, the aluminum or carbon machines are just as much fun. The advantage of this is that you simply avoid the heat by staying in the forest more often. And let's be realistic: especially in Central and Northern Europe, there is also enough bad weather in summer. The high quality Shimano gears and brakes that Scott and Cube use, withstand wet and humid weather as well as dust and heat.
No longer reliant on asphalt
Thanks to your cyclocross bike, you no longer have to rely on asphalt as you would with a pure road bike. A beautiful path through the forest or the nearby fields with gravel roads is exactly what these cyclocrossers are built for.
