Benefiting from Specialized's vast experience with professional XC riders, the Crave Expert 29 delivers serious go-fast speed and smoothness. Abundant features in the M4 butted-aluminum frame like a tapered head tube and short chainstays result in great handling and climbing capability. There's also an 100mm travel RockShox fork and big, 29-inch wheels with grippy Specialized tires. As a result, the Expert carves singletrack with ease. Plus, the wide-range 2x10 Shimano/SRAM drivetrain and the braking power of Deore discs round out this speedy hardtail.
