At a glance

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

Come race day, speed is not an option—it’s everything. That’s why we built the Crave Comp 29 from a M4 Premium Aluminium that’s lightweight and stiff for climbing efficiency. 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 the perfect balance of precision and strength, with a double-ring crankset and a plush RockShox fork. Whether you’re starting out or a seasoned vet, you’ll be able to benefit from its sheer speed.
