Hyper-X – CX

The Hyper-X lets you build a race-ready disc ‘cross bike. It’s got all the great handling of the CrossHairs – now with our chainstay disc mounts:

  • Chainstay disc mounts provide for protection for the disc calipers.
  • Lighter tubeset.
  • Excellent braking – wet or dry.
  • Fewer mud-related problems.
  • The top tube is free of all cable routing for easier portage.
  • Race-ready cyclocross fit.
  • Limited top tube slope for nice balance while carrying your bike.
  • Shorter chainstays.
  • Stainless steel dropouts for reduced corrosion.
  • Available with a matching Gunnar Steel fork or composite forks from Wound-up and Whiskey.

It all spells speed – not only when you’re on the bike but when you’re carrying it.

We didn’t forget the functionality: you still get eyelets and rear rack mounts plus two sets of water bottle bosses. The chainstay disc mounts let you mount a standard rear race for commuting or light touring – without interfering with the brake caliper.

Have special needs and interests? Gunnar offers a wide range of paint and frame options. When the need for custom fit is called for, you can take advantage of our “Made to Measure” version. With our Made to Measure service, you can also order horizontal dropouts for single speed riding, with either 120mm (fixed gear) or 135mm (single speed) rear dropout spacing. You can also order Paragon’s Slider or Rocker dropouts, which make it easy to convert your frame to disc brakes, single speed, hub-transmission and a host of other possibilities. We also offer a convertable package, where we add braze-ons for derailleur drive trains to go with the slider/rocker dropouts. Finally, you can order a version designed for the Rohloff 14-speed rear hub.

Add either a matching Gunnar steel fork or Ritchey WCS composite cross fork.

The Gunnar Hyper-X comes in several stock colors, with base options changing from month to month. For other ideas, check out our Archived Colors. Recent colors of the month are available for a nominal charge. You can customize colors with a wide range of options, including one-step, two step and special effects colors.

It’s still a road bike disguised as a cross bike – this time with disc brakes.
