CARVE EXPERT
£1,400

Equipped with a 100mm-travel RockShox Reba RL 29 fork, the aluminium Carve Expert 29 is ready for race day or a quick loop after work. Featuring Avid hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 2×10 drivetrain, and versatile Specialized Ground Control 2.1-inch tyres, the Carve Expert provides race-day performance that rips on your favourite local trail.

  • Fully butted, smooth-welded M4SL alloy frame is superlight, stiff, and efficient, with 29er XC geometry, integrated headset, tapered head tube for front-end stiffness, plus bridge-less seatstays for compliance over bumps
  • Light and stiff, double-walled alloy rims for added stiffness; front hub has cartridge bearings and oversized dropout interface for front-end rigidity
  • Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes use 180mm front rotor for increased leverage on 29″ wheels, while 160mm rear rotor keeps weight low
  • Shimano Deore XT Shadow 10-speed rear derailleur for lightweight, pro-level shifting, and improved clearance
  • 100mm-travel RockShox Reba RL 29 fork features a new Solo Air spring, remote Push-Loc, tapered steerer tube and externally adjustable rebound for plush and lightweight trail performance
  • Custom SRAM 10-speed XC double-ring crankset with 29er gearing and GXP bottom bracket offers lightweight and durable performance
