The Low Cross, was our first foray out of the track bike world and laid the groundwork for the rest of the MK Road Series. This is the frame that gave birth to our renowned tube manipulation and shaping process - one of the main features that distinguishes Low Bicycles as a world class manufacturer of Aluminum frames.
While sharing many similarities with the MK Road Series, the Cross features a Cyclocross specific tubeset and geometry, designed for racing varied and challenging terrain. We went with a stout rear triangle for race ready stiffness, but with smaller downtube to balance out the feel. Compared to the MKIII Gravel frame, a slightly lower stack height allows for a more aggressive body position better suited for racing. Also, higher bottom bracket allows for more maneuverability and clearance in tightly winding cyclocross courses, while a slightly slacker head tube angle allows for stability and control in short, steep climbs and descents.
