Specialized: A Long History of Innovation
Few brands can boast such a distinctive legacy of innovation, performance, and quality as Specialized, symbolized by its iconic logo, a simple "S".
The history of Specialized Bicycle Components began in 1974 in one of the world's first technology business incubators, the Silicon Valley. Its founder, Mike Sinyard, was an aviation enthusiast drawn to the world of cycling. His passion for the sport was so strong that he decided to sell his van and, with the $1,500 from the sale, finance a trip across Europe to discover the magic of cycling, pedaling from Amsterdam to Milan on his road bike.
Upon returning to California, he founded Specialized Bicycle Components with the idea of importing components and accessories from the Italian manufacturers he had encountered during his journey and marketing them in the United States. Two years later, in 1974, he launched his first product to the market: touring bicycle tires.
In 1981, Specialized produced the first units of its road bike range, the Specialized Allez. That same year, it introduced the world's first mass-produced mountain bike: the Specialized Stumpjumper. At the same time, Specialized expanded its product range by adding the first BMX bikes, which gained popularity thanks to the movie E.T. and its famous flying scene.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Specialized continued to innovate and grow. In 1989, it launched the Specialized Allez road bike series and the Specialized Rockhopper mountain bike, both of which remain popular to this day.
A trajectory of success began, with a multitude of high-quality models and components, leading Specialized to introduce the legendary S-Works line in 1992. It was also the year when Italian cyclist Mario Cipollini won the World Cup and the classic Milan-San Remo.
In the 2000s, the brand introduced bike models that revolutionized the market, such as the Specialized Roubaix road bike with its handlebar suspension technology for comfort on rougher terrains, and the Specialized Turbo Levo, one of the most advanced and high-performing electric mountain bikes on the market.
Today, Specialized remains one of the world leaders in bike manufacturing, distinguished by its commitment to innovation and quality.
What are the advantages of buying a refurbished Specialized bike?
At Tuvalum, you have the opportunity to buy a refurbished used Specialized bike at the best price, with payment facilities, an 18-month buyback guarantee, and the option to have it delivered to your doorstep in 3 to 5 days, ready to ride.
Furthermore, a refurbished Specialized bike from Tuvalum is not like a typical used bike found on classified ad websites. All Specialized bikes available for purchase on our online store have been thoroughly checked, adjusted, and refurbished by our team of mechanics.
On the other hand, buying a refurbished bike has a much more sustainable environmental impact compared to buying a new bike. Purchasing a used Specialized bike from Tuvalum helps avoid the emission of over 300 kilograms of CO2 into the atmosphere compared to buying a new bike from any other store.
Specialized Key models
Throughout its history, Specialized has produced some of the best-selling models in the market. In the manufacturer's catalog, you will find different ranges suitable for all types of use: road, mountain, gravel, triathlon, electric, and more.
Specialized road bikes
Specialized offers a range of road bike models with specific geometries tailored to each type of terrain. The Specialized Roubaix is designed for long distances and rides on asphalt, offering comfort and performance. The Specialized Allez is a versatile bike ideal for beginners, providing a combination of comfort and agility. For those seeking a bike with a pure racing DNA, the Specialized Tarmac is the ideal choice, offering ultimate performance for the most demanding cyclists.
Specialized mountain bikes
Specialized mountain bikes are among the most popular in the market. Particularly, their cross-country model, the Specialized Epic, is highly regarded in both its full-suspension and hardtail versions, the Epic HT.
What does the acronym Specialized S-Works mean?
S-Works is the branch dedicated to the design and development of the high-end bikes of the American brand. The S-Works models are at the forefront of technology and offer cyclists the lightest, fastest, and most efficient bikes available.
How to determine if a Specialized S-Works model is authentic?
In the second-hand market, cases of fraud and counterfeiting of Specialized bikes bearing the S-Works designation are common, especially on peer-to-peer sales platforms and websites where the authenticity and condition of the products are not verified. For example, it is common to find regular Specialized bikes to which an S-Works logo sticker has been added to make them appear as a higher-end model than they actually are.
To verify the authenticity of a Specialized S-Works bike, you can check the serial number, which is usually located on the bottom bracket. At Tuvalum, we guarantee the authenticity and quality of all our reconditioned bikes, so you can buy with confidence.
Which cyclists use Specialized bikes?
