2013 Specialized Carve Comp

2013 Specialized Carve Comp

Carve Gets a 2x10 speed drivetrain!
All signs point to the Specialized Carve line to be spec’s with a 2x10 speed drivetrain. This will be the second year for the Carve line and continues be an impressive bike for entry level riders/racers. There is plenty of value here.

Let’s take a look at the entry level 2013 Carve Comp. This Comp model starts off with a SRAM 2x10 speed drivetrain. What does this mean? This brings it to the industry standard and will continue to be a great valued bike. We can say with confidence that all the 2013 Carve models above this will have the same setup. Also the Carve Comp model gets a Rockshox Recon Solo Air fork. An upgrade compared to the 2012 Carve Comp’s basic coil spring fork. Take a look at the specifications below for more details.

First Look: 2013 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29 and Comp Carbon 29

2013 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp  Carbon 29

2013 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29 Red/Black
2013 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29 Satin Black/Charcoal
2013 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29 Retro Blue/Silver

Take A Look!
Let’s start with the Stumpjumper  FSR  Comp. The frame and components remain the same from 2012 with the addition of a new Fox Float CTD shock with Autosag and CTD fork. CTD stands for Climb, Trail, and Descend. It has three preset ride settings for different riding situations instead of having to adjust rebound, compression damping and lockout individually. There will be three colors options: retro blue/silver, black/red, Satin Black/Charcoal
The Stumpjumper Comp Carbon gets a minor drivetrain make over  but will be very similar in spec to the standard Stumpjumper Comp model. Instead of using SRAM shifters and rear derailleur, the carbon model will have new Shimano SLX shifters and an XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur. The color option for this will be satin/carbon white. Specs for both models can be seen below.
