What Specialized bike is the most appropriate for you?

Specialized is one of the main bicycle manufacturers in the world and one of the brands that has harvested the most successes in the main international tests of both cycling and mountain cycling. Perhaps that is why it has become a brand of cult among millions of fans of all the world, following a case similar to that of Apple mobile phones or Mercedes cars. It is rare the grupeta or amateur team where there is not at least a couple of cyclists or bikers that go out to roll with a Specialized bicycle. And like many drivers they want to have a Mercedes or a BMW, if you ask in your circle of cyclist friends, what a bicycle would they want to have, in a wide percentage they will tell you that a Specialized. But Buy a Specialized Bicycle It is not a simple exercise. While other brands in their category focus on making bicycles for the high competition segment, Specialized covers everything is a spectrum of possible ranges, from the lowest that serve as access to the highest designed for professionals.

Specialized ranges by component level

S-works Specialized usually group the different versions of each bicycle model depending on the level of components with which they are equipped and the type of carbon used in the construction of each frame (in the case of the paintings manufactured with this material). In this way, the American brand has different ranges of its main models adapted for the level and demands of each user. A cyclist who is looking for a road bike is not the same to start and go to roll 40 kilometers a couple of times a week, that the corridor competes every weekend and seeks to improve their times. Specialized bicycle ranges, ordered from the lowest to higher level of components is as follows:
  • Sport
  • Elite
  • Comp
  • Expert
  • Pro
  • S-works
Sport versions are equipped with change groups and lower range components. They usually correspond to the level of entry to each category, indicated for those who first arrive at cycling and seek something simple with what to start in this sport. In each range jump the components are of a higher level and the materials used for bicycle manufacture are lighter. The most premium versions of Specialized bicycles are those cataloged within the S-Works range, with high module carbon paintings and both mechanical and electronics of both category. This difference, obviously, translates into the price. Hence, for example, that a Specialized Epic Tid costs almost 3 times less than a Specialized Epic S-Works, even though it is the same bicycle model. These ranges do not apply equally to all Specialized bicycle models. The S-Works versions are reserved only for the most leading models of each modality. Thus, for example, the Specialized Allez of the 2020 season only has Sport and Elite versions, since it is a model of access to road cycling. At the other extreme we have the Specialized Epic Evo, which is only distributed in comp and S-Works versions because it is a Mountain Bike model conceived for the highest competition. Knowing the level of ranges is important not to make mistakes when choosing which version of each model is the one that best suits our characteristics and needs.
