“Be prepared for your confidence to get out of control.”

The 165mm-travel, M5 aluminum Enduro FSR Comp features FSR suspension, a custom Fox Float CTD Evolution shock with AUTOSAG and RockShox Pike RC fork. Climb higher, descend faster.
The fully manipulated M5 alloy FSR frame with ORE tubing is the centerpiece of this incredibly versatile 165mm-travel design; featuring an improved shock link, sealed cartridge bearing pivots, 142+ dropouts, ISCG '05 mount, internal Command Post routing, and replaceable derailleur hanger
Custom tuned FOX Float CTD Evolution shock with AUTOSAG features three compression settings: Climb, Trail and Descend
All-new 750mm wide alloy handlebars control the new 160mm-travel RockShox Pike RC fork, featuring a great blend of stiffness, light weight, tuning options, and a 15mm thru-axle for precise handling
Roval 26 All-Mountain rims mated to Specialized Hi Lo hubs, 15mm thru-axle, and a 142+ rear hub spacing for durable, lightweight, and affordable package
2Bliss Ready Specialized Butcher Control 2.3" dual compound front tire for premium control on challenging trail conditions
Custom SRAM S-1250 AM double crankset with PF30 spindle and shift guard, plus SRAM's 11-36 cassette for high-performance shifting and chain retention
WHAT “X-Wing”-designed frame with in-line suspension, tapered head tube, carbon PF30 BB and 142+ dropouts.
WHY Creates the ultimate All-Mountain machine, capable of handling serious downhill abuse, without forfeiting efficient climbing or precise steering.
HOW By combining our relaxed, plush geometries with added torsional stiffness in select areas, we get a bike that can absorb huge hits and still climb swiftly. The “X-Wing” design with tapered head tube connects the top tube and down tube for an ultra-stiff design and durability at a lighter weight. The lighter frame design features a new mount for the custom-tuned shock, which coupled with our FSR technology provides 165/155mm of active, plush travel that’s efficient under pedaling forces.
AUTOSAG SUSPENSION TUNING
WHAT Revolutionary SBC technology, manufactured by FOX, automatically sets the proper sag and air pressure in your shock.
(Not on S-Works w/Cane Creek shock.)
WHY Quick and simple adjustment that guarantees the perfect setting for optimal suspension performance.
HOW In the saddle, the rider pushes the specially designed transfer port on the shock to release air pressure until a set level, based on the rider’s weight. This equalizes the positive and negative chambers and achieves perfect sag.
NEW COMMAND POST IR DROPPER SEATPOST
WHAT Remote-adjust, three-position mechanical dropper seatpost with internal cable routing—available in 100mm and 125mm drop options.
WHY Allows rider to lower and raise the saddle on the fly for more efficiency and control over varying terrain. Internal cable routing keeps frame clutter-free and safe from the elements.
HOW Rider pushes the all-new handlebar-mounted lever to easily compress the seatpost to one of three ride heights: Climbing position (full height) for maximum power output on climbs and flats; Cruiser position (35mm drop) for undulating terrain; and Descender position (125mm drop) for maximum clearance and maneuverability on technical descents.
ROVAL TRAVERSE SL
CARBON WHEELS 26/29
WHAT Traverse SL wheelset with carbon rims. New 29 model features Zero Bead Hook technology.
WHY Reduces weight, increases stiffness and durability, and absorbs impact better than alloy wheels. The lightweight wheels improve climbing performance and acceleration out of corners.
The 29er model features Zero Bead Hook technology to create a lightweight and impact resistant wheel.
HOW We designed this lightweight carbon wheelset with wider rims to accept large-volume tires up to 2.5” wide. The tubeless-ready carbon rim is stronger and stiffer than alloy, so the wheels remain in-true longer, and absorb impact better.
Zero Bead Hook simplifies the rim manufacturing process, resulting in a lighter-weight rim that with edges more resistant to sharp rocks and rough terrain.
