Combine road bike efficiency and speed with off-road stability and handling and you get the Ellsworth Roots. This frame is made for the cross course with a more upright geometry and a flat top tube for easy carries. It's built with aluminum in front and carbon out back for that ideal balance of snap, low weight and durability. The sweet frame is lead by an Easton EC90X fork, well-known in the cross world for its precise steering, feathery weight and durability. And perhaps the best thing about the Roots is that it's an amazingly fun commuter, daily rider and winter training tool, able to tackle the streets, paths and shortcuts through the park alike.
