Each of us sometimes wants to leave the city and relax in the forest away from civilization. Or leave it all and go to the Bieszczady Mountains. It is not worth letting the bike limit us in such situations. KROSS Hexagon 1.0 was created for all those who value universality at an affordable price. This is a budget city bike with the option of mounting a wider, off-road tire. The comfortable geometry allows you to adopt a relaxed driving position that facilitates the observation of the surroundings.
KROSS Hexagon 1.0 in 2023 is a continuation of the thought guiding us when designing the previous generations of this bike. It’s not just a new varnish on the frame – we’ve improved many small details that translate into pleasure and comfort of driving.
For a pleasant journey through the world
KROSS Hexagon 1.0 is a proven Shimano accessory that provides you with 21 gears. It is extremely easy to service and cheap to operate. V-brakes are responsible for safe braking, they guarantee a sufficiently high braking force that will stop you safely in all conditions. Our offer of a recreational mountain bike also has a suspension fork that makes it easier to ride over all kinds of unevenness and overcome small terrain obstacles that may stand in your way. KROSS Hexagon 1.0 is also proof that 26-inch wheels are still doing well and find themselves in the modern world dominated by 29-inch wheels. They are equipped with Wanda tires 2.1 inches wide. This width of the tire will allow you to drive through the forest and will not slow you down on urban asphalt.
Technologies for a smooth ride
The KROSS Hexagon 1.0 frame is made of aluminum performanceStop Aluminum Performance 6061 means high rigidity and resistance to breakage, and at the same time lightness typical of aluminum. . This special performance 6061 aluminum alloy provides the bike with stiffness and resistance to overloading and breaking. At the same time, it is a relatively light material that can surprise many cyclists with its properties. The frame is powder coated, which translates into durability of painting and its resistance to mechanical damage.
- Aluminum Performance 6061 alloy is high stiffness and fracture resistance, and at the same time lightness typical of aluminum.
- A method of painting consisting in applying electrified particles of powder paint on aluminum, which require thermal treatment. After sintering, the varnish surface creates a perfectly smooth coating, exceptionally resistant to mechanical damage.
- For maximum protection of our frames, we have created a system of replaceable hooks that can be easily and quickly replaced in the event of damage. To limit the possibility of damage to the frame to a minimum, we place the threads on the hook or on a special nut.

WOMEN’S OR MEN’S SIZE ?
Selected KROSS models are available in women’s and men’s versions. How to distinguish these versions? Women’s sizes/frames are marked in the frame selection table (“How to choose a frame size”) with the letter “D” preceding the letter with the size, e.g. DM (17′) 28″ means a bike for ladies in size M with frame size 17 and wheels 28 inches. Sizes without the preceding letter “D” usually mean men’s or (depending on the model) universal size (e.g. MTB/MTB XC models and others)
HOW TO READ FRAME GEOMETRY TABLES ?
M (19′) 29″ – this notation means: M – frame size expressed by the symbol, 19′ – frame size in inches, and the value 29″ means the diameter of the wheel (rim, tire, inner tube) also expressed in inches (usually 26, 27.5 and 29 inches for MTB and 28 inches for trekking, city or road bikes)
