HOW A breakthrough in the weld location allows for a more durable, stiffer headtube juction which means more material in low stress areas can be removed. Size-specific tubes allow engineers to tune the ride for ultimate compliance.
LIGHT AND RESPONSIVE FRAME
WHAT Double-butted A1 Premium Aluminum and E5 Premium Aluminum frames.
WHY Light weight frame offers unsurpassed quality and features our proven geometry for precise handling.
HOW Through methodical tube shaping and enhanced weld techniques, our engineers manipulate every aspect of the frame for experience-specific performance.
BODY GEOMETRY TOUCHPOINTS
WHAT Specialized Riva saddle and short-reach bars.
WHY To relieve common rider pressure/pain points while riding.
HOW The Specialized ergonomically designed, Riva Body Geometry saddle is lab tested to ensure blood flow to sensitive arteries, which alleviates rider discomfort. Short-reach drop bars improve a rider’s position to create a more comfortable, confident position for long rides.
AXIS WHEELSET AND ESPOIR TIRES
WHAT High-performance AXIS wheelset and Espoir tires.
WHY For durable performance, plus reliable and confident handling with low rolling resistance.
HOW Specialized Espoir 25c tires deliver increased comfort and efficiency when cornering, and feature BlackBelt protection for fewer flats. Strong, efficient and highly engineered AXIS wheelset provides a stable, confident ride.
