Trek Releases Katie Compton’s Cyclocross Bike: The Crockett
WATERLOO, WISCONSIN — Trek Bicycle launched the Crockett, an all-new cyclocross racing machine that already has a World Cup overall championship to its name. The weapon of choice for Katie Compton of the Trek Cyclocross Collective, the Crockett was developed with direct input from the ’cross National Champion and is 100% designed to get the rider to the finish line first.
The new frame features a lower BB, slacker head tube, steeper seat tube and both internal and external cable routing options. Borrowing technologies from the Paris-Roubaix winning Domane, Crockett’s IsoSpeed fork and 3S chainkeeper keeps riders confident when the course gets hairy, and it’s available in disc and cantilever options. The Crockett comes in five complete build options, as well as disc and canti framesets.
“I’m really particular about my equipment, and it has to be perfect. The Crockett was super fun in the single track, tracked beautifully and rode great,” said Compton. “It’s just what I needed to go for the World Cup overall. Smooth over the roots and carved the turns just how I wanted. Pretty sure this is the perfect bike!”
“Working directly with Katie on the new Crockett CX project pushed Trek into a new level of CX race performance,” Explained Michael Mayer, Trek Road Brand Manager. “We were able to use her riding and racing feedback and deliver a World Cup winning bike.”
The new aluminum model is joined by its OCLV carbon cousin Cronus CX, which returns to the start line in two build options for racing season. The Crockett Cronus are available now at Trek retailers worldwide.
