The UCI-approved Handsling CEXevo frame is lightweight and durable for the rigours of cyclocross racing and fast gravel riding.

Frame Production

The first of Handsling’s in-house designed frames, the CEXevo is an evolution of the championship winning CEX frame. Improvements were made to the type of carbon used, headtube and bottom bracket, resulting in a laterally stiffer frame with more mud clearance and enhanced comfort levels.

Handsling owns the moulds used to make the CEXevo, allowing full control over all aspects of production. Internal EPS moulds are used for increased carbon compaction making the frame lighter, stiffer and more robust.


The CEXevo is made from tough, high performance Toray T800 series carbon. The frame is an excellent climber, and easy to carry over obstacles and run with when the going gets tough.

Frame weight is 870g for a 52cm frame, while front fork weight is 370g.


The CEXevo has lost none of the stiffness of the race-winning CEX it replaces. We have added extra carbon where the frame needs it most, ensuring that the CEXevo is rock solid under hard efforts.


The CEXevo has no rear seatstay bridge, meaning even better mud clearance. With 33mm cyclocross tyres fitted there is plenty of clearance to cope with even the muddiest of days, and the frame will take up to 45mm tyres, making it a great gravel bike and beach racer.


One benefit of removing the rear brake bridge is vastly improved comfort levels, leaving the rider fresher for that final sprint to the finish line. That same give also aids rear wheel traction on loose ground.


The CEXevo offers stable handling to carry the rider faster and with more confidence on descents, and yet still climbs with speed and efficiency. The relaxed geometry makes it extremely stable and easy to ride fast.

New fork for 2022

The 2022 frame has a new deeper bladed fork, with a slightly increased rake, that has been designed for the increasingly standard 12mm thru axle.

Included with CEXevo frameset:

  • Handsling headset 1 1/8th to 1.5"
  • Handsling seatpost clamp
  • Handsling Superlight 12mm thru axles

Read about more about Handsling






"I am blown away by the performance of the bike in all situations flats, descents, acceleration and even more astonished by the improvement in my climbing... friends are now questioning what has happened to their performance! In total transparency I tell them “it’s not me, it’s the bike”."

"I have finally today finished building my Handsling. I’m just back from its first ride. And WOW. What a great bike. So smooth yet fast and stiff. Can’t wait to get out and ride it some more over the weekend. You really have designed a great bike here. As I say blown away with how it rides. It rides as well maybe even slightly better than my S works tarmac haha."

"I was looking for a high-performance road bike for amateur races and triathlons, but also club rides and blasting around the local lanes. I just don’t get how they made A1R0evo so stiff and responsive, but also so comfortable. I went for 28c tyres and the bike ploughs through road debris and potholes. The ride is assured and comes alive when you’re going full gas.”

"Just wanted to follow up now that it's been almost six months since I received the A1R0evo, weather is starting to turn for the better and I have been able to get out and ride more consistently with the earlier sunrises. The new bike rides great! I've been having a blast and riding much faster on my solo training rides which the new rig. I am very pleased indeed."
