Specialized Chisel Expert 29er Mountain Bike 2018 – Hardtail MTB



Fast and confident on all cross-country trails, the Specialized Chisel is a hardtail 29er redefines what’s possible with an alloy framed mountain bike.

Offering an ideal introduction to the world of XC racing, the Chisel features cutting edge cross-country MTB geometry – longer and slacker – that combines stability at speed and on the steeps with nimble handling in tight corners and switchbacks. Of course, the XC 29er geometry is great on the climbs too.

The M5 aluminium alloy frame is built with cutting-edge D’Aluisio Smartweld technology that moves the welds away from high stress areas of the frame. This delivers a lighter frame that is strong and stiff where it needs to be, for accurate handling and efficient power transfer as you step on the pedals. The frame also offers a smooth compliant ride which will make you reconsider the qualities that a high-end alloy frame can offer. As Specialized’s Senior Advanced R&D Engineer, Chuck Teixeira, says, “If you haven’t ridden an aluminium bike lately, you haven’t ridden an aluminium bike.”

The RockShox Reba fork up front offers 100mm of plush suspension travel (90mm on size small) to tame the trail efficiently. Boost hub spacing on the frame and fork means that the wheels are stiffer as well as offering the ability to fit wider rubber.

Offering reliable running with a wide gear range, the SRAM GX/NX 1×11 speed drivetrain gives you all the gears you need without the complications of a front derailleur. With only a single ring up front combined with a clutch mechanism on the derailleur, dropped chains are a thing of the past. Stopping duties are taken care of with the powerful SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes.

Whether you are racing or exploring, the Specialized Chisel will give you the performance you need to perform at your best.
