The stiff, lightweight Threshold C1 delivers podium-seeking cyclocross speed and will have you wondering how one hour can take so long but hurt so good.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada's Pacific Coast is the ultimate place to develop and perfect a carbon fiber cyclocross bike. It helped us engineer the Threshold C1's mid-modulus carbon frame and fork with ample mud clearance, size-scaled tubing, ovalized seatstays, and bent chainstays to dissipate shock and maximize CX performance.
The Threshold C1 features wireless electronic shifting from a SRAM Force AXS 12-speed drivetrain, and Force hydraulic disc brakes, meaning there are no cables to get gummed up with mud after a lap in the sticky mud and snow. A SRAM 900 thru-axle hubset is laced to WTB KOM Light i21 TCS rims that support fast, sturdy Maxxis All-Terrene 33mm knobby tires.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you’ll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
