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 comes in all black
Instead of the front derailleur, the left side of the bars on the 1×11 models feature the new remote lever of the Specialized Command Post.
The RockShox Pike on RUMOR Expert Evo has 120mm travel.
On the new RUMOR you will find the Specialized SWAT system integrated as standard.
The drivetrain is taken from the SRAM X01 groupset.
Instead of a derailleur, a chain guide can be mounted for the 1×11 drivetrain.
The Specialized RUMOR is available in four versions.
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.
The new Specialized MYTH saddle is fitted as standard on the new ERA.
The saddle is specially adapted to the needs of female riders and available in two widths.
