Specialized Carve Comp
Using a fully butted and smooth welded M4SL aluminium frame based on the same geometry as the more expensive Stumpjumper, the new Carve Comp is Specialized’s lower priced offering.
What makes it special?
While much of the spotlight has been on the full carbon high-end expensive offerings, there’s now much more choice under the magic £1000 price, with Specialized stepping up to offer some cracking bikes.
So then, the Carve Comp. You can expect all the usual attention to detail and high workmanship from Specialized, including a decent spec for the asking price. A RockShox XC32 29er specific fork features lockout and rebound adjustment with a tapered steerer tube stiffening the front of the bike. Specialized spec its own tubeless-ready The Captain Control tyres along with a Shimano groupset and 180mm front disc rotor to bring the bike to a speedy stop
