The benefits of the “big” wheels are available through our entire XC, Trail, All-Mountain, Recreation, and Women’s lineups. From the Hardrock rider getting their feet wet in mountain biking, to the woman whose Rumor perfectly fits her active lifestyle, to the aggressive rider charging demanding terrain aboard an Enduro, Specialized 29ers deliver the stability and control riders demand.
WHY SPECIALIZED 29ERS?
WIDE RANGE OF FIT > 29ers are not just for tall people. We’ve done the homework to ensure our dialed geometry allow riders of all sizes to experience the benefits of 29-inch wheels. Our 29ers are nimble and fun with our signature geometry.
MOST-RESPONSIVE HANDLING > We keep our chainstays short on all our 29er frames, so the rear triangle remains stiff for a responsive ride. We also use shorter, tapered head tubes to keep the front end low for agile and controlled handling.
LOWEST CENTER OF GRAVITY > By keeping the bottom bracket at the already low height of our 26-inch bikes, we help the rider sit deeper in the bike between the axles. This low center of gravity boosts stability and control over typical 29ers.
LIGHTEST 29ERS > Each of our 29er models is optimized for lightweight performance. From FACT carbon fiber frames to tubeless-ready Roval wheelsets, we shave weight to improve the riding experience.
Integrated innovation with the focus on complete performance makes our 29ers the lightest, fastest and most efficient bikes in the sport.
OPTIMIZED ROVAL WHEELSETS > To counter the inherent weight increase of a larger wheel, Roval XC race, Trail, and All-Mountain wheelsets are specifically engineered to meet the demands of each unique riding experience. The full-range of carbon and alloy Roval 29 wheelsets feature groundbreaking weight-saving technologies, a wider rim for stability and durability on technical terrain, and refined tubeless-ready capability for the ultimate in lightweight, hassle-free performance.
TIRES > Our full line of 29-specific tires includes the fast-rolling Renegade, the versatile Fast Trak and Ground Control, plus the all-new 2.3-inch Butcher.
HANDLEBARS > We equip different 29ers with unique handlebars to keep the front end height in check, depending upon the bike and rider needs. Although our headtubes are super short, they meet our rigorous testing requirements to live up to years of trail-induced abuse.
SUSPENSION > Our custom RockShox SID Brain 29er fork combines Specialized inertia-valve damping technology with the World-Cup-proven performance of RockShox’s SID 29 slider. We get every bit of stiffness from the front end by utilizing 15mm hubs and thru-axles.
