Tips & Advice

Tyre choice is the key to success. To cut down on pinch flats go for a tyre with thick side walls.

Use a back-pack style hydration pack such as a Camelbak instead of bottles as they can get bounced out on the more ‘interesting’ sections, leading to a thirsty ride.

Enjoy it! Adventure Cross gives you the best of both worlds. You can still zip along the Tarmac without feeling sluggish and even the not particularly technical off-road feels a lot more interesting and devilish.
