You need a mountain bike that's as capable and up to the challenge as you are; lucky for you, Specialized's Rumor Elite 650B is more than ready for any terrain that comes its way. It easily tackles technical trails without sacrificing efficiency. With some of the best standover height in the business, the Rumor's women's-specific fit is second to none. The aluminum frame is light, agile, and ready to take on the rough stuff with 125mm of FSR rear suspension. A 130mm-travel RockShox fork smooths the trail so you can ride faster, while 650B wheels strike the perfect balance between speed and responsiveness. An efficient SRAM 11-speed drivetrain delivers crisp-shifting and maximum power in any gear combination. Specialized finished out the spec with grippy, fast-rolling tubeless tires, a Command dropper post, and a bar and saddle that are sized just for women.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.
