Technical Specifications
DO THE DIRT without cleaning out your wallet. The FSRxc™ takes to the trail like an old pro, but its updated design with improved standover, greater seatpost adjustment and new rocker link gives you a license to a wider range of trails.
  • Our M4 manipulated alloy frame is updated for `09 with a new rocker design and 120mm travel. Sealed cartridge bearing pivots provide reliable performance.
  • Specialized-exclusive X-Fusion shock offers adjustable rebound and lockout control for fine-tuned performance.
  • The RockShox Recon fork delivers a full 120mm of travel with lockout control and a Turn Key damper for adjustable rebound.
  • Specialized alloy adjustable rise stem is lightweight and 3D-forged with a stiff four-bolt face plate for tuned fit and perfect steering precision.
  • Avid Juicy hydraulic brakes provide exceptional stopping power and reliability, with tool-less reach adjust, alloy-backed pads and size-specific CleanSweep rotors.
  • The long-cage Shimano Deore Shadow rear derailleur shifts smoothly and reliably, with a new low-profile design that improves durability.
