The 29er version of the Clockwork just keeps us coming back for more. Even more so for 2017 as we’ve lengthened the top tube and shortened the stem for improved rider weight distribution. It will roll at speed all day long, and take on gnarly descents with a confidence most would balk at.

Updated for 2017 the 6061-T6 aluminium frame is now a little longer which, combined with the 50mm stem, offers the ideal riding position for balanced weight distribution and direct input. The chainstays are a little shorter and at 65-degrees the head angle is a little slacker for a more confident ride both uphill and down.

Specialized Rockhopper Expert
If you’re the one in your group that’s always getting followed on the trail, the Rockhopper Expert 29 is here to make sure that it stays that way. We built it to be light, durable, and exceedingly capable, but how we did it is far more interesting.
You’ve thought about it—probably even got out on the dirt or gravel a few times—and now’s the time to pull the trigger on a fully-fledged mountain bike. Well, you’re in the right place. The Pitch 650b features everything you need to start getting off the road and out on some trails.
Specialized Jynx Comp
Over the course of your rides, you’ve surely felt the call of a trail or two along the way. And as long as you’re on an ill-equipped bike for the occasion, this call goes unanswered. That is until now. With the Jynx Comp 650b, you’ll find a bike that features an even temperament for whatever kind of terrain you’re up for riding.
Trek Marlin 6
Marlin takes its cue from light, fast XC bikes. The right wheel size for each frame size, performance pedigree and an unbeatable ride feel make Marlin the perfect trail rider.
