Specialized's Era Expert Carbon 29 is ready for XC domination — from World Cup racing to blowing by your friends on after-work rides. This carbon rocket features 100mm of Specialized's world-renowned, Brain-controlled FSR rear suspension that delivers hardtail-like efficiency on smooth sections and fully-active travel through technical terrain. This women's-specific ride features the geometry and components to be your ultimate XC weapon. Up front, the RockShox SID fork with Brain technology boasts 100mm of trail-smoothing, corner-carving precision. The 1x11 SRAM drivetrain is powered by svelte SRAM carbon cranks to give you all the push you'll need and more. When it's time to slow down to earthly speeds, Shimano's Deore XT discs get it done, while the carbon Roval 29er wheels and trail-hugging, tubeless-ready tires are ready for any XC course. In addition to the bar-setting Specialized grips, saddle, and seatpost, this Era comes decked out for pack-free adventure with Specialized' Zee bottle cage, SWAT multi-tool, and top cap chain tool.
Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.
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.
The Brain is the mastermind behind Specialized's ultra-efficient suspension designs. It automatically turns the suspension on and off almost instantaneously to provide the perfect ride. An inertia valve mounted inside a near-vertical cylinder near the rear axle controls the shock's ability to compress; the resulting system responds to terrain input (bumps and dips), but not to rider input (pedaling). All Brains also feature Brain Fade technology which allows you to control the breakaway threshold of the inertia valve. This turns your Brain from ultra rigid and efficient to super plush and active.
