Specialized 2017 Women’s MTB Range

See what Specialized will have in store for us in 2017

The season of bikeporn and excitement is well under way, with the latest MTB additions for 2017 coming from Specialized bikes.

Specialized bikes are an extremely progressive brand when it comes to women’s mountain biking. In the past couple years, they’ve really worked hard to listen to customer feedback and tailor both their bikes and kit to suit our needs. While the American giant appear to struggle with the cultural differences between the US and UK when it comes to kit style, their bikes have been going from strength to strength.

We headed down to their 2017 launch to check out the newest models for women’s mountain biking.

Specialized Ruze Expert 6Fattie

Specalized Ruze Expert Fattie women's MTB

The Ruze Expert 6Fattie has been designed with durability and versatility in mind. It’s your go-to bike for all day adventuring, a quick pootle around town, and even your fun blast around the trail centre.

The aluminium frame houses 100mm travel on a pair of Manitou Magnum forks. The brake system is SRAM DB3 with 180mm rotor up front and 160mm in rear. With a SRAM GX 1×10 drive train, there’s enough gear range to have you gliding up those mountains.

The chunky 27.5″ x 3.0″ tyres are heavy duty, but they allow for greater traction and rolling ability over those rougher sections.

Sizes: Small – Large

Price: £1800

Specialized Women’s Camber Comp Carbon 650b

Specialized Women's Camber MTB

The women’s Camber model is the ultimate trail ride. The range has three different build models which cater well for both the experienced rider, and the newcomer.

This Comp Carbon camber is built from a carbon front with an alloy rear triangle. Equipped is a pair of RockShox Revelation RL forks, boasting 130mm travel in the front, and a Fox Float Performance in the rear. With a Shimano brake system, and a SRAM drive train, Specialized has kitted this bike out for ultimate trail performance.

The Satin Nibali Blue/Nordic Red/Flake Silver colour way is really nice as well. With the midnight blue looking quite stealthy from afar, but up close it has a lovely speckled sheen to give it that subtle feminine edge.

Sizes: X.Small – Large

Price: £2900

Rhyme FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie

Specialized mtb0`

If you’re looking for something a little more beasty, something that can do you proud at the more gnarly of bike parks, then the Rhyme is the one you’re after.

The Rhyme range has 6 different build specs, each catered for your style of riding and your budget. This Carbon Expert is constructed from a carbon front end, with an alloy rear triangle. The beefy Fox 34 forks provide 150mm travel in the front, with a Fox Float Performance shock in the rear.

A Shimano XT braking system provides that stable confidence you need for speed control, and the 1×11 SRAM drive-train allows for a wide range of gears to effortlessly see you through any trail.

Rolling on a set of 27.5″ x 3″ wheels, you’ll be able to tackle the roughest of rides comfortably and confidently.

Sizes: X.Small – Medium

Price: £4800

Each of these trail blazing beauties have been revised and re-designed with new women’s specific contact points: bars, grips and stems.

We’re pretty impressed with Specialized for their choice of more gender neutral colour ways, and the subtle feminine touches which compliment each model.

Next year is shaping up to be an exciting one for bikes, and we can’t wait!
