Details

There's a new Queen in town. Specialized's 110mm-travel Rumor Expert was designed from the ground up for women. Everything from women's-specific parts, to the geometry, to custom suspension were considered. All that translates to a fun, fast, confidence-inspiring ride on any trail. With some of the best standover height in the business, the Rumor's fit is second to none, too. Its light aluminum frame is agile, and the custom Fox shock with AutoSag makes dialing in your rear suspension simple. The rest of the gear is singletrack ready: a 110mm Fox fork, Formula brakes, SRAM 2x10 gearing with carbon cranks, and a dropper post for uninterrupted trail domination.

Specialized's women's bikes make every ride a blast!

To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.

Specialized FSR Rear Suspension

Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
