Specialized 29er Mountain Bike
Size Doesn’t Matter
With the Specialized 29ers, you’ll enjoy intuitive and responsive handling because, well, Specialized mountain bikes are designed to be a leader in the industry. When they designed their 29ers, they made sure that the chainstays were kept short on all of their frames. Keeping the chainstay short on the 29er models insures that the rear triangle remains stable and stiff, which provides a very responsive ride. The use of shorter tapered head tubes also help insure that the front end is kept low for maximum control and handling.
Low to the Ground
The 29er Stumpjumper as well as the Rockhopper and Hardrock are built with a low center of gravity. When designing these 29ers, Specialized decided to keep the lower bracket at the same height of their 26 inch bikes. Keeping the same low bottom bracket allows the rider to sit lower, between the axles — causing the awesome feeling of riding ‘in’ the bike, rather than ‘on’ the bike. This low center of gravity riding position allows you to control the bike like never before. It also give the bike high stability, while not compromising comfort and maneuverability through any condition you may find yourself riding through.
It’s no wonder that Specialized is boasting the lightweight of their 29er models. Specialized mountain bikes has been producing ultra-lightweight bicycles for as long as I can remember. Every 29er model in their line up is designed for lightweight performance. They’ve included FACT carbon fiber frames, tubless ready Roval wheelsets, and even cut down weight throughout the other components of these bikes.
