Go bigger, go faster. With its FACT carbon mainframe, trail-dominating components, and dialed EVO geometry, Specialized’s FSR Expert Carbon EVO is the real deal. Everywhere you shred, the active 135mm FSR suspension, powered by a Fox Float CTD shock, keeps your rear wheel glued to the trail on technical climbs and gnarly descents. Up front, a tapered head tube, slack head angle, and outstanding 140mm RockShox Pike give you the confidence to crush the hard line, throw it deep into a corner, and ride away with a smile on your face. Component-wise, a 1×11 SRAM drivetrain snaps through the gears with the pull provide by the carbon cranks, while the Shimano XT discs let you hang it out until the last possible second, then throw the clamps on with loads of power. Plus, the 29-inch Roval wheels are wide and light, the Specialized tubeless-ready tires grip hard, and the internally routed Command Post dropper post seals the deal.
