Product Details

2013 Specialized Carve Expert 29

Benefiting from Specialized's vast experience with professional 29er riders, the Carve Expert 29er delivers serious go-fast speed and smoothness. Abundant features in the M4SL butted-aluminum frame such as 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 Shimano/SRAM 2x10 drivetrain and the all-weather braking power of Elixir discs round out this speedy hardtail. And, you'll love the quality Specialized rims and components which hold up great no matter how hard or long you go.

          Fantastic bike. I live in CT where most of the trails are more technical than flowy. Very rooty and rocky, but the Carve handles it incredibly well. I ride with guys who ride full suspension bikes that are more designed for all-mountain riding and I can keep up with them fairly well. I need to get out and ride a lot more than I am, but from what I've experienced thus far, this bike is flawless.

              Purchased this bike in June and been on singletrack with the bike at [...]. The bike rides great and is worth the money.

              Comments:

              The first day I bought it I only used on pavement, just around the block and it felt good and something I noticed was the powerful hydraulic brakes, they really do their job. The next day I was anxious to go off road and I was amazed how the bike responded. It is very light and the geometry of this bike makes the ride comfortable.
