Competition-inspired, the new Carve Pro 29 is an aluminum hardtail 29er bike released by Specialized for 2012. This new bike comes with a 29er, featuring an 80mm-travel RockShox Recon Gold 29 SL fork with SLX shift levers and Deore hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano.
Offering excellent stiffness, efficiency, and light weight, the M4SL alloy frame of the Carve Pro 29 is fully butted and smooth-welded. Along with 29er XC geometry, a tapered head tube is included to offer front-end stiffness as well as seatstays with no bridge to achieve compliance over bumps.
Climbing is made easier by the new 2012 Specialized Carve Pro 29 Hardtail 29er Bike, thanks to its excellent components, including the remote lockout, double-walled alloy rims, and the aluminum steerer and stanchions featured by the fork.
