Sport. Utility.

On-road efficiency meets off-road ruggedness. The Quick CX’s mountain-bike inspired frame, 700c knobby tires, front suspension, and disk brakes make it the perfect vehicle for dirt road adventuring, off-road shortcuts through the park or all-weather commuting.

Quick CX IS:

  • Mountain-bike durability mixed with road bike nimbleness and heads-up comfort.
  • The perfect blend of sport and utility.
  • Ready for any road, any weather, anywhere.

rider profile:

Someone looking for a bike that matches his adventurous spirit, whether that means exploring the fire roads of Big Sur or braving the cobbles of SoHo.


  • Mountain Bike Inspired Frame
    The lightweight but durable Quick CX frame is designed like a mountain bike for the road. With pronounced SAVE features and a smaller diameter 27.2 seatpost, it delivers a crisp yet comfortable ride.
  • OverSized HeadTube Junction
    Massive 1.5” Si headtube is connected to an oversized top tube and down tube for a level of steering precision and control usually found only on the World Cup Circuit.
  • Custom Forks
    For off-road control and on-road comfort, most Quick CXs are equipped with 50mm-travel, 1.5” steerer suspension forks, including the radically light and stiff HeadShok DL50.
  • Disk Brakes
    Disk brakes add all-weather braking power and control.
  • Rack and Fender ready
    With rack and fender mounts, including low-rider fork mounts, the Quick CX is ready for anything from commuting to fully loaded overnight adventures.
