We've had a one-track mind for over 40 years. Faster. Faster. From the movies. To the short-lived. The flamboyant. And the prestigious. It's our heritage. Winning is in our DNA. We've learned how to go faster with every bike. And every bike has led to this. The new Tarmac. What a long, fast trip it's been.
For over a decade, Brain has been the only shock that can differentiate between rider and trail inputs, so it rides firm on smooth terrain and opens when encountering trail/bump force impact. And our newest Brain, found on the all-new Epic, moves closer to the axle for even more responsiveness. Oil porting and flow paths are reengineered to reduce oil turbulence and better damping, while new hose ...
Rider-First Engineered™ is a technology that we first introduced with our Tarmac. It brings unique layups and tube shapes to every frame size, so whether you’re a Small or an X-Large, you'll have the same ride experience. It also enabled our engineers to create a shared geometry for men and women, while also cutting up to 525 grams out of the frame (dependent on model) without compromising on stif...
The most decorated full suspension XC bike just got even better. The new Epic is completely redesigned, featuring a geometry that's geared towards handling today's aggressive XC courses, an all-new Brain shock at the axle with better damping and responsiveness, a Rider-First Engineered™ design that provides uniform performance across every frame size, and an ultra-lightweight construction that sha...
Peter wanted to go faster. We wanted Peter to go faster. And with the all-new Tarmac, we'll all go faster. It's the lightest bike we've ever made, and it outperforms any bike in its class when it comes to handling, fit, responsiveness, and aerodynamic performance. Nothing is lighter, faster, and better handling.
The hardscrabble is tough, but it’s burnt into his bones. Sam Gaze can’t help falling for the rush of it, the adrenaline, of getting on the dirt and fighting to be first across the line. Racing. It’s addictive. It’s in his DNA. And in this episode of Inside Specialized Racing, we sync with U23 World Champion, Sam Gaze, to see what this season has in store for him.
We all know Peter Sagan has more swagger than a kid with birthday cake—and this is what it looks like to have your cake and eat it too. We gave the 2X World Champ the all-new Diverge with Future Shock to play with in the woods, and stood back to watch. With his usual effortless style, he makes us all want to be kids again. Smooth tarmac, chunky gravel, or off-the-beaten path in the dark and moody ...
We gave two-time defending World Champion Peter Sagan the all-new Diverge and a film crew, and told him he could do whatever he wanted. This is what happened.
If you want to see what else he got up to, check back on June 15th and see him put it through the paces.
How do you come down from the high of an Olympic Gold Medal and the most dominant triathlon season of all time? That's a question Gwen Jorgensen is trying to answer now that Rio is in her rearview mirror, but expecting her first child is a good start. We caught up with her at her new home base in Portland, Oregon to see how she's adapting to life as a mom-to-be, to get a glimpse of her day-to-day,...
In 1990, we turned the mountain bike world on its head when we launched the Epic Ultimate, a bike so far ahead of its time that the process and price limited the number of bikes being produced to only 100-per-year. Under Ned Overend, the reward was next to immediate, with a win at the very first Mountain Bike World Championships. Today, the new S-Works Epic Hardtail stands for the same things as i...
In the second teaser installment of MOTIVE, we go inside the world of two trail builders—Curtis Robinson and Dylan Dunkerton—and discover how and why they devote so much time to building lines on the sides of mountains, knowing that it will give just 40 to 45 seconds of ride time.

You raise our standards, our expectations, our hopes, and our spirits. From you, we learn to raise hell, the bar, and our voices. We are the artists and builders, the dreamers and realists, the seekers and champions—the very people we become—because of you. You may not feel heroic, but we think you’re super, Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day from Specialized.

Here, every crack tells a story. Every cobble's etched with the prose of races past. Triumph, defeat, broken bones and losses—It's a story Tom Boonen knows by heart. It's a story, after all, where four chapters start with the words "Tom" and "Boonen." But there are four chapters beginning with "Roger De Vlaeminck," and no disciple of this race's story can let this stand while they still have fight...
When Jaroslav Kulhavý asked Christoph Sauser to come out of retirement and race the Cape Epic with him one last time, Christoph couldn't say no to his friend. And while the race didn’t go their way, Sauser leaves the race he loves exactly the way he wanted—with no regrets.
