Specialized Ruze 6Fattie
$950.00
More traction gives you more confidence, and with the Specialized Ruze 6Fattie, you get just that. It's specifically designed from the ground up to give women of all skill levels an advantage on the trail, earning its nickname as "the ultimate trail hardtail". Its 650b x 3.0-inch tires put out more traction, more flotation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a proper trail machine, this iteration of the Ruze places a focus on blending durability with performance. To do so, they spec'd it with strong Stout XC rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and a SR Suntour fork with 80mm of travel. Of course, you also get a host of women's-specific components, plus Specialized's Women's Trail Geometry with an ultra-low standover height. It has everything you need to ride harder and go faster, and nothing that you don't.
All-City Electric Queen Frameset
$999.00
The All-City Electric Queen was expressly made for maximum fun. Sitting squarely in the “trail” category it goes up almost as well as it comes back down. Short wheelbase, modern trail geometry, and plus size tire clearance makes this a non-stop dirt party no matter what terrain you’re tackling that day. Its whippy 612 chromoly frame with internal dropper post routing, boost spacing, and those short chainstays make berm-carving and wheelies second nature. Build your Queen with 27.5+ wheels and tires with your favorite fork, drivetrain, and brakes for a dreamy rig that rules with radical energy.
Specialized Chisel Frame
$1,000.00
Carbon isn't the only material that gets to have all the fun—the alloy Chisel frameset is the perfect combination of light overall weight, stiffness, durability, and alloy. Consider it the perfect start to your XC build. Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy's gotten such a bad rap. And to further improve this feel, the Chisel also features our XC geometry, which took our previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front-end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider range of fit. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. - Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance.

Specialized Fuse Expert 27.5+
$2,000.00
We said it once, and we'll say it again—more volume means more speed. It might sound flipped on its head, but one ride on the Fuse Expert will have you shouting 27.5+ praises from the mountaintop. These bigger tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And then there's everything else that makes it ride like a proper trail machine, like striking the perfect blend of performance and durability. This meant spec'ing it with strong alloy rims, a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, dropper post, and a plush RockShox Reba RL fork with 120mm of smooth travel. This Fuse is equally ready to take a beating and to hand one out to the trail. - M4 Aluminum with Smooth Welds proved to be the right material for the job, allowing a lightweight, durable frame with a low and slack geometry that's equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay that accommodates the 27.5+ wheels & tires without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays. - A RockShox Reba RL 29/6Fattie fork features up to 120mm of plush, trail-taming travel. It's also air-sprung for smooth travel and low stiction, and it has an adjustable rebound and compression lockout for more efficiency on the climbs. - SRAM's 12-speed NX 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, and it provides significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
Specialized Men's Chisel Expert
$2,020.00
Often times, carbon gets all of the attention, but as our Senior Advanced R&D Engineer, Chuck Teixeira, says, "If you haven't ridden an aluminum bike lately, you haven't ridden an aluminum bike." And with its D'Aluisio Smartweld frame, the Chisel Expert with two-by gearing is no exception. Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy's gotten such a bad rap. And to further improve this feel, the Chisel also features our XC geometry, which took our previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front-end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider range of fit. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. The build on this Chisel features a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, powerful SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, and 25-millimeter-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction. - Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance. - A custom RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 90/100mm of smooth travel (size-specific), while an easily accessible compression and rebound adjusts permit you to customize the feel according to the terrain at hand. - SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset, with its 11-50t cassette, provides a wide gear range that lets you spin up the climbs, yet have plenty of top end for the descents. One-by setups also decrease weight and make it next to impossible to drop a chain.
