A cyclocross bike is a bicycle specifically designed for the rigors of a cyclocross race. These are specially designed to travel both off and on road. Cyclocross has gained popularity among non-racers owing to its ability of riding in multiple terrain. It also helped athletes to improve physical fitness. These bikes are generally heavier than a road bike; however, they are lighter than a touring bike. Introduction of cyclocross bikes with innovative design and their use for riding as touring bikes are expected to boost popularity of cyclocross bikes among users. Additionally, riders found cyclocross bikes to be effective owing to their light weight, and offer the experience of traditional European cyclocross.
Rise in purchasing power of end-users, rapid increase in adoption of cyclocross bikes for recreational activity by users, rise in concern about physical fitness among users that is leading to preference for cyclocross bikes across the globe, and sports celebrities endorsing cyclocross bikes as touring bikes are major factors that are expected to drive the sales of cyclocross bikes. Moreover, increase in the number of participants for cyclocross bike racing has fueled the usage of cyclocross bikes, which in turn is expected to boost the cyclocross bikes market during the forecast period. However, high price and maintenance cost of cyclocross bikes is likely to restrain the market in the near future. Nevertheless, development of new and innovative products, targeting new sports centers and wider reach of products through e-commerce are expected to offer significant opportunities to the cyclocross bikes market during the forecast period.
