Go bigger, go faster, and evolve. With its FACT carbon main frame, trail-dominating components, and 150mm of RockShox-controlled travel, Specialized's FSR Expert Carbon is the real deal. Everywhere you shred, the active FSR suspension keeps your rear wheel glued to the trail on technical climbs and gnarly descents. Up front, a tapered steerer, slack head angle, and outstanding RockShox Pike RC give you the confidence to crush the hard line, throw it deep into a corner, drag the bars, and ride away with a smile on your face. Specialized's SWAT Door adds a compartment to the downtube to store tools, a tube, and a pump so you're always ready to shred sans pack. Component-wise, a 1 x 11-speed SRAM drivetrain clicks through gears even when you're stomping on the carbon cranks, while the SRAM Guide R brakes let you wait until the last possible second, then throw the clamps on with precise modulation. Plus, the 650B Roval wheels are wide and light, the Specialized tubeless-ready tires grip hard, and the internally routed Command Post dropper post seals the deal.
