Trail

At a glance

The 2017 Specialized Rhyme Comp Carbon 650b is an Trail Carbon mountain bike. It has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Rhyme range of mountain bikes.

The mission of the Rhyme Comp Carbon 650b is pretty simple: Give women the best performing trail bike out there. It features our proprietary trail shock tune for women, Women’s Rx Tune, that’s tailored to give women the best suspension performance possible. At the frame, you’ll find our FACT 9m carbon fibre that creates a lightweight, strong, and stiff construction. The carbon moulding process also allowed us to revolutionise how you carry your trail essentials with the all-new SWAT™ Door found at the down tube. This compartment will fit a tube, a tool, and pump without rattling or compromising the structural integrity of the frame.

Factor in our nimble Trail 650b Geometry, a durable list of women’s-specific components, and our pressure-relieving Body Geometry Myth saddle, and you get a bike that’s going to eat up the trail and ask for seconds.
