For trail inclined speed freaks, the Evo is evolved with meatier trail capability.
  • Both 2Bliss Ready, the S-Works Purgatory 2.2" front tire works in concert with The Captain Control 2.0" rear tire to deliver exceptional traction for pinpoint cornering and braking in varied conditions
  • M5 alloy frame rules the Competitive XC category with 100mm of supple FSR suspension, delivering small bump performance and smooth terrain efficiency
  • Newly revamped for increased stiffness, the Roval Control AL wheelset with durable alloy hubs, oversized 28mm end caps, and stainless DT Swiss spokes powers over the bumpy stuff with greater control
  • Specialized and Fox blend their brains to develop the FlowControl Mini Brain shock with Brain Fade inertia valve, air spring and adjustable rebound for World Cup - and local trail - domination
  • Specialized Command Post is a 3-position adjustable-height seatpost with remote lever for on-the-fly changes to riding position, 100mm travel
  • Battle-tested RockShox SID RLT 120mm air-sprung fork with rebound, compression, lockout adjust and floodgate control dials in the perfect pedaling platform while remaining light weight
