Some time ago, Specialized announced that they would not be represented at Euro Bike this year. Instead, the U.S. boys presented us with their new products in the run-up to the Specialized Days in Leogang. In 2015 they are releasing two hot new bikes for the female clientele, the Specialized ERA and Rumor Expert Evo.
The biggest news in the new lineup is certainly the new Specialized ERA, representing a fast and light bike which is built specifically for the needs of the female rider. This includes, among other things, a completely redesigned geometry and a lower weight-adjusted suspension, also a very low stand-over height for increased safety in steep terrain.
The Specialized ERA in Detail
Overall, the new Specialized ERA will be available in three versions at prices of €3,599 to €8,499.
In addition to the new ERA, Specialized presented us with the new RUMOR Expert EVO, a trail bike for the adventurous biker. The RUMOR Expert EVO has 120mm (adapted to the female weight) of travel and will bring more fun on flowy trails and take the fear out of challenging downhills.
The Specialized RUMOR Expert EVO in Detail
The Specialized RUMOR is available in four versions from €1,699 to €4,299.
Specialized Myth saddle
Besides the two new bikes, Specialized also presented the new MYTH saddle for its female customers, which thanks to its flat and wide shape should be the perfect all round saddle for all mountain bikes. The saddle weighs approximately 285g and is available for a price of €49.90.
