What are your terms and conditions?
Good question. Here's a link to our complete terms and conditions.
Where are your international offices?
Specialized USA is a separate entity from Specialized in other countries across the world. As such, there are different policies, procedures, and laws to which Specialized abides to in different countries. To address this concern with the appropriate people, you will need to contact Specialized in your country of residence. Clicking the following link will provide you with the necessary contact information for all of the different Specialized entities across the globe: International Subsidiaries and Distributors
Does Specialized offer a Military Discount?
Unfortunately, we do not offer a Military Discount at this time.
Can Specialized sponsor me, my team, or my event?
As sponsorship and donations can affect our dealers and business in their area, these requests must now be made directly through them. If your local dealer is on board with your cause, and or feels that you would be a good athlete ambassador for our products, they can help you get available sponsorship support through their sales and account representatives.
Being a sponsored athlete is a privilege and responsibility. It is not for everyone, and unfortunately, sponsorship cannot be offered to all that request this support. As a sponsored athlete or event, you are expected to promote the sport, services, and products of both your local dealership and Specialized with class and dignity. You should only contact your local dealer regarding sponsorship opportunities if you are serious about promoting and being an ambassador for your local dealer and Specialized.

- Frames and forks
- Suspension attachment points and related equipment (pivot points, bushings, chain stays, seat stays, shock links, fasteners) on bikes sold after 2008
- Suspension attachment points and related equipment (pivot points, bushings, chain stays, seat stays, shock links, fasteners) on bikes sold before 2009
- Components attached to the bicycle/frameset (saddle, wheels, drive train, brakes, seatpost, crankset, handlebars, stem, baskets, racks, etc.)
Some branded and co-branded equipment may have additional warranty coverage offered by the specific manufacturer.
This limited warranty is conditioned upon the bicycle being operated under normal conditions and use and is properly maintained. Please note that this is only valid for the original owner.
This warranty does not cover regular maintenance such as bike tuning, wheel truing, spoke tensioning, cable replacing, wear and tear, or damage due to an accident, abuse, or neglect.
To obtain benefits under this warranty, the bicycle or frameset must be presented to an authorized Specialized dealer on the same continent on which the bicycle was purchased, together with a proof of purchase. Only authorized Specialized dealers are authorized to perform warranty service. Should the bicycle, frameset, or any part thereof be determined by Specialized to be covered by this warranty, it will be repaired or replaced with the most comparable option at Specialized's sole option.
The original owner shall pay all labor charges connected with the repair or replacement of all parts. Under no circumstances does the limited warranty include the cost of travel or shipment to and/or from an authorized Specialized dealer.
This limited warranty is not transferable and does not apply to:
- Normal wear and tear
- Damage or failure to accident, collision, crash, misuse, abuse, or neglect
- Improper assembly or installation
- Improper alteration or installation of components, parts, or accessories not originally intended for or compatible with the Specialized bicycle as it was sold
- Failure to perform maintenance or service at appropriate intervals supported by records of such maintenance
- Non-genuine Specialized products
- Specialized products not purchased new from an authorized Specialized dealer. (i.e. eBay, PinkBike, or any other second-hand purchase)
If you have any other questions or concerns about the Specialized warranty policy, please contact Specialized at (877) 808-8154 or [email protected]
How do I register my bike?
Any Specialized-brand bicycle can be registered by its proper owner from our website. You can access the registration form directly or you can access the form at any time by clicking "Bicycle Registration" at the bottom of the www.specialized.com homepage.
To register your bike, you will need the serial number from underneath the bottom bracket on your bike. Registration is advantageous in that it provides us with a way to give local police ownership information on recovered stolen bikes. It is also useful in warranty- and service-related situations.
Ordering & Shipping
How does Home Delivery work?
With our new home delivery option, you can purchase a bike on Specialized.com and select ‘Home Delivery’ during check out to have your bike delivered to your door where available. With this option, bikes purchased on Specialized.com will be shipped to a participating local retailer of your choice, where the bike will be professionally built, then delivered to you, ready to ride.
You will receive email notifications when the bike has shipped to the retailer, when the retailer has received the bike, and then when the bike is ready so you can schedule delivery with your retailer. The delivery charge is calculated during check out and all appropriate social distancing and sanitization best practices will be followed.
All bikes purchased using Home Delivery are covered under Specialized’s Global Warranty Policy. We gladly accept returns as described in our return policy.
Can I order online from outside the US?
We only deliver orders to physical mailing addresses within the United States, excluding PO boxes.
The shipping address on your order must be one to which FedEx can deliver to.
If you are outside of the USA, contact the Specialized distributor in your region for specifics on how your region does business.
Other markets where online shopping is offered direct from Specialized.com include Brazil, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, China, and Korea.
Here is the complete list of Specialized International Subsidiaries and Distributors

- FedEx Flat Rate Ground Shipping is $8.99
- FedEx 3-day $10.99

How can I track my order?
You can look up your tracking number by logging in to your Specialized account on our website and then clicking the "order history" link in the drop down menu on the left. We've teamed up with FedEx to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information on your package while it's in transit. Upon shipment, we will also send you an e-mail with your tracking number.
Visit www.fedex.com, enter your tracking number, and you'll see the latest updates of your shipment. If your account information does not update with your tracking number, contact our Customer Service Department at (877) 808-8154.
When will you ship my order?
We ship all orders received by 2:00 PM Mountain Time on that same business day (Monday through Friday). Otherwise, the items will ship the following business day.
Once the order ships, delivery time will depend on FedEx and the method selected for shipping.
When FedEx has picked up your package and it goes into their system, a tracking number will be generated. This is visible from the "Order History" section of My Account, and then clicking "View Order" . There you will find a tracking number.
Here is one additional bit of info: the amount of information that FedEx generates is quite detailed for the air services like 3 day, 2 day, and overnight. However FedEx Ground often produces minimal info from pickup to delivery.
If you have further questions on delivery, get your tracking number from our website, and give FedEx a call at 1-800 GoFedEx (463-3339) or visit www.fedex.com and plug your tracking number into it.

Yes! For more details on this program, please go to www.specializedwaterbottles.com or contact our team at [email protected]
I'm looking for a product that's not online. What do I do?
Specialized produces many proprietary parts for our bikes that require a certain level of expertise and knowledge to install. These parts are not available for purchase directly from us. The way to order service parts is by having your local dealer contact their Retail Care representative to set up a special order for you.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact Specialized Rider Care at (877) 808-8154 or [email protected]
How do I determine the size of my bike?
First, look over your frame to see if there are any stickers indicating its size (for example: 17, 19, M, L, 56, 58, etc.). If a sticker indicating the size does not exist, then follow these simple steps:
- Measure the length of your bicycle's head tube. The head tube is the part of the frame that the front fork inserts into. It is the forward most part or "tube" of the frame and it is arranged in a slight angle off of vertical. You will need to measure this length in millimeters.
- Once you have the length of your bicycle's head tube in millimeters, you can then compare that length to the geometry chart for your corresponding year and model of bicycle. A geometry chart is a chart that lists all of the important measurements of your bicycle's frame in relation to each size the bicycle was made in. The geometry chart for your specific model and year (as well as other valuable information about your specific bicycle model) can be found in the archive section of the Specialized website. The archive section can be found by hovering your mouse cursor over the red Specialized banner in the upper left hand corner of any page on the website, then clicking on "Bikes" then clicking on "Archive."
- Once you've located your specific model and year in the online archive, click on the "Geometry" tab located under the photo of your bicycle. This will show you the geometry chart for your specific model and year in accordance with all of the sizes the bicycle came in.
- Locate the row in the geometry chart labeled "head tube length" and scan across the row until you find the measurement that matches the measurement that you took from your bicycle's head tube.
- One you've found a match, scan to the top of that column and you'll see the corresponding size of your bicycle.
Note: A serial number does not indicate the size, model, or year of a bicycle. We will not be able to tell you this information with only the serial number. If you do not know the model and year of your bicycle, you will need to find it manually via the photos in the online archive.
Can I repair a crashed helmet?
Helmets are not repairable. We recommend that you replace the helmet if you hit your head at all. Even the slightest hit can compromise the integrity of the helmet. You simply need to take your crashed helmet into a local Specialized dealer, and they can help you process that as a loyalty replacement and give you 20% off the retail price of a new helmet. Please note that the loyalty replacement does not pertain to helmets that are older than three years old.
What is your return policy?
Return Policy Specialized offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on all products purchased from our online webstore at www.Specialized.com. The following are the procedures and details on how to do a return or exchange:

Terms & Conditions
Loss or damage that occurs during return shipping is the responsibility of the consumer or their chosen shipping carrier. Credit will be issued on the account with which the item(s) was/were purchased. Credit will be for the purchase price of the item(s) and applicable tax, excluding shipping and handling. Returns and exchanges will be processed within five business days of receipt of the shipment. Your banking organization determines when any credit due will show on your account. In addition to Specialized’s 30-day satisfaction guarantee, all products are covered by their respective warranties. To process a warranty claim, please bring the item(s) and a proof of purchase into your local Specialized dealer or contact Specialized customer service: (877) 808-8154, or [email protected].

We can credit your account, but cannot make additional charges. Therefore, if an item is requested to be exchanged for an item of lesser or greater value than the original item purchased, we will automatically process the original item(s) for a refund instead. If the return/exchange form is incompletely/improperly/illegibly filled out, the item(s) will also be automatically processed for a refund.
Can I exchange an item if it doesn't fit?
We realize that buying items that are size-specific over the internet is difficult. Because of that, we offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on products purchased from our webstore.
Upon receiving your order, if you find the need to exchange an item for the same item in a different size or color, we can help. However, if you want to switch to a different item, then you'll need to return the item for a refund and order the new item separately.
We will send out the replacement item(s) on exchanges within five days of receiving the original item back. We will send it via Fed-Ex 2-Day air, at no charge to you, to the address from the original order.
Can I return an item to Specialized that I purchased from a Specialized retailer?
To return an item purchased from a Specialized dealer, please contact the dealer directly. The Online Store is unable to process returns of Specialized merchandise purchased through your local dealer.
How do I check on my warranty claim?
All warranties are processed through authorized Specialized dealers' accounts. Dealers' accounts are considered confidential, so only the dealer is able to look up and inquire about warranties in process under their account.
Your dealer will need to contact their Specialized Warranty Representative and inquire about the specific item to see what the status of your warranty claim is.
