Specialized: Unmatched Innovation and Technology in Every Bike
Specialized manufactures some of the finest products in the realm of bicycles. The American brand was founded in 1974 and has established strong traditions of innovation and quality. Specialized makes bikes suited for riding in the mountains or down the street, triathlonracing, and dirt jumping. They have even created a bike that allows the riderto cruise comfortably with the assistance of a small electric motor. With so many different designs in their stables, Specialized is known today for delivering lightweight, high-performance equipment for diverse but discerning cyclists.
Specialized Bikes Run on Innovation
But what really put Specialized on the bike world map was their introduction of the Stumpjumper, which was the very first major production mountain bike the world had seen, in 1981. The Stumpjumper design is such a big deal that one of the original bikes is featured in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Specialized still makes Stumpjumpers, with both hard tail and full-suspension models available.
Eight years later, Specialized followed up the Stumpjumper with the Epic model. This was only the second carbon-fiber mountain bike frame ever mass-produced. Hard to believe it took so long for they cycling world to catch on to carbon fiber, isn’t it?
Specialized also manufactures bikes specifically designed for the under-appreciated sport of cyclocross. Because the demands of cyclocross combine several different biking disciplines, a cyclocross bike must be lightweight but tough, suitable for racing but also able to climb in elevation and easy to carry by hand. The CruX frames combine scientifically-engineered geometry with carbon fiber to make the agile, durable, lightweight frames required for this demanding sport.

Specialized is excited to support innovative riders like Rogatkin as they create and dominate new cycling specialties.
