At a glance

The 2016 Specialized S-Works Era 29 is an Trail Carbon mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels, has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's S-Works range of mountain bikes.

Is it moxie? Is it hutzpah? Is it enough raw speed to guarantee motion blur? Actually, the all-new S-Works Era embodies all these qualities, but with some barely contained ‘let’s do this!’ enthusiasm mixed in. Designed and engineered to be the fastest, lightest, and best-fitting women’s full-suspension XC machine, the S-Works Era features FSR suspension, the RockShox RS-1 Brain shock, and lightweight Roval Control SL wheels, and is the only woman’s XC bike that dynamically reads terrain for everything from uphill sprints to singletrack descents.

Up, down, PRs, and podiums—this gal’s got game.
