Built for blistering performance
A race ready cross country machine, built for blistering performance on the most demanding singletrack. All models come equipped with some of the lightest carbon fibre and aluminum frames available featuring internal cable routing as well as a PF30 bottom bracket, tapered headtube and 142mm rear dropouts providing you with unrivaled stiffness and unequaled speed.
The Comp Carbon model features a Rockshox Reba fork ensuring a smooth and efficient ride over the roughest ground. A 2x10 drivetrain, featuring a mixture of both Sram and Shimano components, bring things up to speed whereas the Magura MTS hydraulic brakes guarantee reliable braking in the worst of conditions. The Comp Carbon is one of the best value carbon hardtails in our lineup.
An upgraded Rockshox Sid fork is found on the Expert Carbon, which also features a lighter, stiffer carbon frame. The Sid, otherwise known as ‘Superlight Integrated Design’ is a real racers fork, being one of the lightest cross country forks on the market. The fork also features Brainfade, a revolutionary technology developed by Specialized, giving you unparalleled efficiency regardless of the terrain. Carbon Roval Control wheels roll over obstacles with ease, whilst maintaining quick and responsive handling.
The Elite M5 World Cup model is a little different than the carbon alternatives. A M5 aluminum frame specced with the Sid fork and a 1x11 Sram setup, is perfect for the most demanding of routes. This model is excellent value for money, with the M5 aluminum frame offering an excellent ride quality.
Back to carbon fibre, the top of the range S-works model is simply the quickest bike on the race circuit. A full Shimano XTR groupset, forged from a mixture of carbon fibre, titanium, aluminum and magnesium components compliment this race rocket. The new Rockshox RS-1 fork, the ground breaking new inverted fork, provides you with a stiffer, more efficient interface between fork and wheel, ensuring you can corner, brake and accelerate as hard as you can.
