Our Featured Bicycles…
Featured Mountain Bikes…
There’s no better time to get out and hit the trail than right now, and with a bike like the Pitch Comp 27.5, this is more true than ever. It features a hardtail design that makes it efficient at climbing and rolling on the flats, while being sturdy and dependable on descents. Meanwhile, our Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry has been paired with an aluminum construction to provide plenty of comfort and confidence over nearly any kind of terrain. And to make sure that your investment in dirt is going to last for the long haul, we’ve thoughtfully selected components that place a focus on durability and performance. Get ready to roll, the dirt is calling.
Think of the Camber Comp 27.5 like a multi-tool, but with the added fun and agility of 27.5 wheels. At the top of the trail, it’s lively and fast. And on the way back up, it climbs without any wasteful suspension sag.
In other words, it blends all of the trail bike characteristics that you want with the XC climbing prowess that you need. This is achieved by thoughtfully combining our M5 alloy Trail Chassis with a Camber FSR rear end. The combination results in blending lightweight, rigidity, and durability in one package.
Specialized Turbo Levo
The Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6Fattie/29 has the perfect blend of trail performance, proper handling, technology, and durability, delivering you the power to ride more trails in a package that won’t leave you broke and hungry. Then comes an M5 aluminum frame and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Specialized 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a significant increase in efficiency, while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.
It starts with our new A1 SL alloy frame that has optimized tube shapes which save weight while dramatically improving aesthetics. To go along with these clean new lines, the new Rockhopper also has internal cable routing to further clean up the frame. Lastly, our Sport XC 29 geometry adjusts the reach, angles, and standover height to make for an improved fit across the size range. This is sure to keep you ripping and confident while heading both up and down the trail.
Specialized Enduro Pro
The frame’s FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance. It’s been built off our 27.5 Geometry in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT™ Door at the down tube, you get a bike that’s clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer.
Featuring a three-chamber air spring, the Öhlins RXF 36 fork stays smooth and high in the travel without compromising bump absorption, traction, or stability. It also features low-speed and rebound adjustments, and sports 170mm of plush travel.
SRAM’s 12-speed X01 Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
Featured Road Bikes…
If you have somewhere to go, we hope that it’ll take you a while to get there. That’s because our AWOL is born for the open road, and it’s fully equipped for the rigors that come with it. Starting at the frame, it features heat-treated, custom-butted Cr-Mo tubing that’s sure to stand up to years of hard riding and abuse. The geometry is also what you would called “dialed,” as it’s at once comfortable, efficient, and purpose-built to carrying big loads. We also gave this iteration a full bevy of features to further make it ready for the long haul, like fender & rack mounts, a kickstand plate (believe us, this is handier than you know with a loaded rig), and a Dynamo front hub that generates electricity to power lights without needing to plug-in.
We then further improved our Rider-First Engineered™ technology to ensure that the new Tarmac is stiff and compliant in exactly the right places. With this revamp, we also updated the geometry—basing it on countless Retül data points and professional rider input. This enabled us to develop a performance road geometry that perfects the combination of a responsive front end and short wheelbase, delivering instantaneous response and optimal power transfer
The Women’s Diverge Comp has been designed from the bottom-up to be a fully-fledged exploration machine. But now, it’s also equally adept at crushing dirt climbs as it is to cruising to the coffee shop or hopping into a local group ride. And while it might sound cliché in a landscape of bike claims chocked full with hyperbole, the Diverge Comp truly is one bike that does it all
Whether you’re just getting into cyclocross or exploring the road less traveled, the CruX Sport E5 is the perfect bike to help you get out there and get after it. We designed it around a durable E5 Premium Aluminum frame and FACT carbon fork that are equal parts lightweight, rugged, and responsive.
Getting around town is one thing—anyone can do that. Getting around town with only your pedal power to guide you is something special, and that requires a special bike. Our Specialized Urban Bikes, however, are designed to get you from A to B along your commute as fast and efficiently as possible. Come on by our shop and let us get you set up on your new bike.
Featured Urban Bikes…
Don’t confuse simple with simpleminded—our Roll Comp X1 Low Entry might take offence. That’s because we designed it to be the hassle-free, no-fuss, no-excuses bike to help you hit your fitness goals.
It’s a tall order, sure, but with its one-by gearing and low entry, you’ll never have to worry about weird, cumbersome gearing, struggling to get on or off the bike, or putting a foot down at a stoplight. Pretty cool, right?
Of course, there are more tricks up the Roll’s sleeve, like hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime in any condition, a relaxed, upright geometry that strikes the pinnacle of comfort, and wide tires that give you all the grip and stability you need to get it done.
Spend less time performing maintenance and more time enjoying the fresh air on the Alibi Sport C. It features our puncture-proof Nimbus Airless tires and an anti-rust chain, so upkeep is sure to be all but eliminated. And when you combine that with a relaxed geometry, high-rise handlebars, timeless style, and a suspension seat post, you get a bike that’ll have you riding longer, more comfortably, and worry-free.
It’s constructed from a durable, reliable, and lightweight A1 Premium Aluminum, and it features a reliable set of components that are built to withstand years of daily abuse, like comforting Body Geometry touch points that are sure to take the sting out of long rides. You’ll also find rack and fender mounts, so lugging your stuff around town just got a whole lot easier. Complacency just met its match.
To start, we included wide 45mm tires for confident handling as you’re speeding along the bike path, and then came a hand-selected component package that’s nothing short of reliable. Of course, we devoted ourselves to achieving the perfect geometry for comfort and performance over a diverse set of riding styles, ultimately making the Crossroads a purpose-built machine to help you stay fit and healthy. And with the rugged versatility of its aluminum frame, easy on and off step-through design, plus rack and fender mounts, it ensures that this bike earns its keep in your household
Remember the freedom, fun, and sense of accomplishment that your first bike gave you? Well, these days, kids can share that excitement at an even earlier age with our collection of kids’ bikes and equipment. From toddler-friendly walk bikes to pint-sized helmets, we have everything you need to get your little ones away from the screen and out on their bikes.
Featured Kids Bikes…
If we were to stop and think about it, learning to ride back in the day bordered on a traumatic event. The crashes, oh the crashes. These days, however, kids have it easy with awesome little bikes like our Boy’s Hotwalk.
With no pedals or gears, it’s designed to help Junior finds his balance by making it as easy as possible to put his feet down. In fact, scooting around with his feet is how the bike moves (outside of gravity), so he’ll get used to the feeling of riding without much of the risk.
Specialized Riprock 12
With our Riprock Coaster 12, riding gets boiled down to its simplest element— fun. And to make sure of it, we designed the bike with tons of cool features that are easy for your little ones to use, like a coaster brake for simple stopping, wide 12×2.3″ tires that increase stability and confidence, and tough components that will stand up to years of abuse. It’s the perfect bike for your little ripper to start getting out on the trail with—we just wish that we had one when we were kids.
Specialized Riprock 20
Traction, control, confidence, and fun—the Riprock 20 is the perfect bike for your kid to start hitting the trails.
While there are many notable features that make the Riprock awesome, it’s the 2.8-inch tires that provide the high degree of, well, shred-ability—delivering exceptional traction, control, and confidence for riding rough, off-road sections and city streets alike. And when you combine the big tires with sturdy 20-inch wheels, mechanical disc brakes, and seven-speed shifting, you have the perfect mountain bike to get your little Ripper out on the path to a lifetime of fun rides.
Specialized Hotrock 24
Your little one might love to ride, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be doing Trans-Provence this summer. That’s why we made our Hotrock 24 with plenty of gear range to tackle the neighborhood hills, and enough front end travel to ride beginner’s trails confidently.
Of course, it also features a lightweight, yet durable, A1 Premium Aluminum frame that’s designed to take a hit while they find their legs on the pump track. Chatter and bumps, meanwhile, are handled by the coil-sprung SR Suntour fork’s 50mm of travel.
