There’s a time to haul and a time to haul ass—the Source has got the chops for both. With a high tech FACT 8r carbon or a lightweight alloy frame with Fitness Geometry to keep you riding in comfort, it powers you through the work week in hard-working style, but is always ready for those weekend adventures. Fully equipped with integrated racks, fenders, and a lighting system, and available in derailleur shifting or internal 7, 8 and 11-speed versions, it’s the perfect 'right out of the box’ bike.
WHAT Custom-developed Specialized aluminum fender, plus Racktime aluminum rack with “hidden” mounting hardware.
WHY Provides lightweight, reliable accessories without the hassle of installation, combined with state-of-the-art technical mounting solutions for a clean and functional execution.
HOW The custom rear fender and rack are supported by a new “hidden” bracket solution that is invisibly integrated into the fender. This provides outstanding rack stiffness and also holds the rear light wire. The bike is additionally equipped with all regular mounting eyelets for personalized rack solutions.
E5 ALLOY FRAME
WHAT E5 alloy frames featuring smooth welds, internal cable routing, preinstalled racks and fenders (most models), and internal wiring for the lighting system.
WHY To improve speed and handling, while also boosting utility and style to better serve riders’ diverse needs.
HOW Ultra-light E5 alloy frame includes features borrowed from our high-end Specialized models: Precision internal cable routing is quicker to install, eliminates cable rattle, and offers superior shifting and braking performance by keeping grit and grime away from the cables in any weather. Smooth welds give the E5 frame a sleek, pro look, while features like factory racks and fenders mean out-of-box utility for multi-purpose riding.
ALL-NEW FACT 8R CARBON FRAME
WHAT Specialized FACT 8r frame with internal routing and fender/rack capabilities.
WHY Decreases weight for a faster and more capable ride. Internal cable routing decreases maintenance, increases durability and improves brake/shifter functions in harsh conditions. Proprietary rack and fender mounts provide increased utility.
HOW The light weight of the carbon frame enables riders go fast, yet get all the quality handling and capable performance they need on their rides. The versatile frame accommodates rack and fenders for commuting needs, while internal cable routing creates cleaner lines, plus protects the cables from exposure to corrosive elements.
SWITCHABLE DYNAMO LIGHTING
WHAT First-ever hub dynamo light system that can be “switched off” if light is not needed, eliminating the drag. Plus a super bright Supernova LED head lamp and LED tail light.
WHY To provide a high-quality, high-powered lighting system that’s always there when you need it, but eliminates unnecessary drag on the front hub when you don’t.
HOW With a simple rotation of the switch on the outside of the front hub the lighting system is switched off, and the associated drag is eliminated. Lights can also be switched off at the source. This system also provides more light than any other dynamo system: at 370 lumens, only battery-powered systems can equal it.
SUPERNOVA AIRSTREAM CUSTOM INTEGRATED BATTERY LIGHT SYSTEM
WHAT First ever integrated battery light system with a removable, incredibly bright 305 lumens front light and a fully built-in LED rear light. The rear light is powered from the front light and has a fast charging time of 4hrs plus a USB charging option. German STVZO compliant.
WHY To provide a high-quality, high-powered lighting system that provides amazing light output; is quick-release removable for charging and to increase theft resistance; and is always there when you need it. There is no any additional drag from a dynamo, and the runtime is up to 7hrs.
HOW Highest-performance LED and advanced LED cooling technology, paired with innovative lens concepts, full CNC aluminum cooling housing and highest grade Li Ion batteries for the latest in battery-powered lighting systems.
