The trail can be a pretty intimidating place at first. Intimidating, that is, until you find the right bike to start ripping on. Specialized's Women's Rockhopper 29 — the perfect ride for you to find your confidence on the trail. It starts with an A1 Aluminum frame that has optimized tube shapes which save weight while dramatically improving aesthetics. To go along with these clean new lines, the Rockhopper also has internal cable routing to further clean up the frame.

This is sure to keep you ripping and confident while heading both up and down the trail. This Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. This means that it features a full Shimano drivetrain, no-fuss mechanical disc brakes, grippy Ground Control Sport tires that add traction over any trail, and an SR Suntour XCT 29 fork with a custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks.

Specialized Enduro Coil 29/6Fattie
$5,800.00
When pedal efficiency and downhill-crushing damping are at the top of your list of priorities, a coil shock provides the best of both worlds. Combine this with Ohlins suspension technologies, plus the all-new Enduro frame, and you're left with a bike that slays both climbs and descents with equal prowess. We gave it a geometry that features a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever. We even added some bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, and made "old" new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush rear and 160mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting. Handling suspension duties out back is the revolutionary Ohlins twin tube coil shock, making for the perfect combination of pedaling efficiency and downhill-smashing damping that will have you going faster both up, and down. We even made it to be compatible with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire system (wheels/tires not included), so you'll always be ready for the trail ahead. As for the build, the Enduro Coil makes no compromises in the performance department, yet leaves you enough for a post-ride beverage. It features a full SRAM GX 11-speed groupset, a Race Face Aeffect crankset, powerful Code R brakes with S4 calipers, stupid-fast Roval wheels, a Command Post IRcc Wu dropper post, and an Ohlins RXF fork. The days of coil suspension appearing only on the bikes of Enduro World Series pros, like Curtis Keene and Jared Graves, are over. There's nothing that can stand in your way. - The frame's FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance. It's been built off our 29 Geometry, which also lends itself to running 6Fattie wheels and tires (only a 5mm BB drop), in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT Door at the down tube, you get a bike that's clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer. - Featuring a three-chamber air spring and TTX (Twin Tube) damping, the Ohlins RXF 36 fork perfectly mates stiffness with a plush, responsive ride quality, and stays smooth and high in the travel without compromising bump absorption, traction, or stability. It also features high-/low-speed and rebound adjustments, and sports 160mm of plush travel. - SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.

Specialized S-Works Men's Epic Hardtail XX1 Eagle
$8,500.00
Call it a healthy disrespect for the status quo, but Specialized was getting bored with traditional hardtail designs. So instead of playing along, they opted to turn the cross country world on its head with a bike that's not only the lightest mountain frame they've ever made, it's their lightest frame—period. Introducing the S-Works Epic Hardtail World Cup. To provide the optimal blend of stiffness, crazy light weight, and strength, Specialized constructed the frame from their FACT 12m carbon fiber, and when combined with the XC 29 Geometry, the Epic frame is guaranteed to deliver uncompromising, blistering speed and agile handling come race day—no matter the course. The RockShox SID World Cup 29 with Brain fork provides 90/100mm of efficient travel. It features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximize your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps. The one-by drivetrain is controlled by SRAM's venerable XX1 Eagle components to form the ultimate in efficiency and intuitive feel, while also having the added benefit of significant weight savings and minimal required maintenance. SRAM Level Ultimate hydraulic brakes, S-Works carbon components, and a carbon-railed saddle round out this amazing machine that will be primary weapon in your pursuit of speed.
Specialized S-Works Men's Epic XX1 Eagle
$10,000.00
Fast and flat, rowdy and technical, punchy and hard—no matter the course, the S-Works Epic with SRAM XX1 Eagle is the best tool to get you to the top of the podium. Its design is all-new, and boy, oh boy is it fast. Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and simply more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots, we saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short- travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? We slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes the redesigned Brain technology, Brain 2.0. The Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the new Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally new. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. The new Epic also gets a serious upgrade in the stiffness department. The Rider-First Engineered tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size- specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike we've ever developed — no matter the frame size. And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you're thinking, "What about weight?" We're glad you asked. With the goal of the new Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike we've ever made, weight was at the top of our priorities list. We started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension, straight tubes with less curves, and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And, if you're curious, this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic — nearly 350 grams. For this S-Works model, we spared no expense with the build, so it features a custom RockShox SID World Cup fork, a 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle groupset, powerful SRAM Level Ultimate brakes, and hand-built, featherweight Roval Control SL wheels. - S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on. - Our custom RockShox SID WC fork with Brain features a full-carbon upper, top-adjust Brain fade, and a custom offset, making it the perfect match to the new Epic. - SRAM XX1 Eagle bits handle the shifting duties, providing a wide range of useable gears that make climbing and descending equally doable.
Specialized Men's Chisel Comp
$1,600.00
If you're thinking about taking the plunge into XC racing, do it with Specialized's Chisel Comp. It embodies all of the qualities you'd expect from an XC race bike, like light overall weight, incredible stiffness, and a race-oriented geometry. Consider it the vessel that's bringing performance to the masses. D'Aluisio aluminum allows Specialized to make a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics for a hardtail XC rig. You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you question why alloy as gotten such a bad rap. To further improve this feel, the Chisel features XC 29 geometry which took their previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened the head tube, and a slacked out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider fit range. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. The build features a mixture of Shimano Deore and XT two-by components for a wide range of gears. You'll also find powerful MT500 Deore hydraulic disc brakes, a historically revered RockShox Judy fork with up to 100mm of travel (size-specific), and 25-millimeter-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction. - Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with speed-focused XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance. - Rocks and bumps are soaked up via the RockShox Judy fork with 90/100 millimeters of travel (size-specific). It features proprietary technology from RockShox, like its Solo Air spring, that maintains an ideal equilibrium, as well as being one of the lightest air springs on the market. - The Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur is one of the most sought after components in mountain biking. It's remarkably reliable, precise and crisp in its shifting, and is nothing if not durable.
