With an all-new frame, the Crave is designed for fast cross-country racers. It delivers great performance with the help of a RockShox Reba RL 29 fork, a Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur, and Shimano Deore Hydraulic disc brakes provide confidence to attack each corner.
  • New, fully butted, smooth-welded M4 Premium Aluminum frame is super-lightweight, stiff, and features XC 29er Geometry, integrated headset, tapered headtube for front-end stiffness, plus bridge-less seatstays for compliance over bumps
  • 100mm-travel RockShox Reba RL 29 fork features a Solo Air spring, TurnKey damping remote Push-Loc, tapered steerer tube and externally adjustable rebound for plush and lightweight performance
  • Specialized Stout SL Disc 29" wheels feature double-wall rims with sealed bearings for lightweight, durable wheels
  • Custom SRAM 10-speed XC double-ring crankset with 29er gearing and GXP bottom bracket offers lightweight and durable performance paired with Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus 10-speed rear derailleur for exceptional shifting performance
  • Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes use 180mm front rotor for increased braking power, while 160mm rear rotor keeps weight low. Shimano levers feature lever reach adjustment
