Overview

Developed amid the rugged landscape and abundant precipitation of Canada’s Pacific Coast, the new Threshold Carbon revels in the muddy mayhem of cyclocross. With race-proven geometry and ARC technology in a lightweight frame, the Threshold Carbon delivers podium-seeking speed along with all the versatility you expect from a ’cross machine.

The toughest riders don’t shy away from harsh weather: they embrace it. Rain, wind, sand and mud? Bring it on. No one said bike racing was supposed to be easy.
