At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Crave 29 is an Cross Country Aluminium / Alloy mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels and a Shimano drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Crave range of mountain bikes.

Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned vet, the Crave 29 will take you to your limit come race day. To make sure of it, we constructed it from M4 Premium Aluminium for its light weight and stiffness, making it perfect for climbs. Meanwhile our XC 29 Geometry ensures a proper power transfer to the rear wheel and plenty of comfort for when the trail gets rough. And when it comes to components, we selected a spec based on durability and strength, which means that the bike comes equipped with a double-ring crankset and a Manitou fork.
