The result is a fast, lightweight and comfortable full-carbon cyclocross race bike, without water bottle mounts, that blows wannabe cross rigs right out of the water. A stiff front end delivers precise handling and an oversized down tube and BB30 bottom bracket shell lend incredible stiffness for efficient power transfer.
Providing almost the same performance and durability as their vaunted Red components, the SRAM Force drivetrain will power the Full Tilt Boogie through the nastiest sections without hesitation or a hiccup, lap after lap.
SRAM Force components delivers extremely reliable and dependable shifting with the mechanical BB7 disc brakes stopping you with great power. Challenge Grifo tyres round out the Full Tilt Boogie's mud-worthy spec and the end result is that when you get on board a Van Dessel you're not just getting on a bike, you're getting on board passion, inspiration, and dedication to being the best.
If serious about cross, Van Dessel is the machine you want. Each bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition.
Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.
