Blending a city, commuter and fitness bike into one, the all-new Specialized Sirrus is now available with their Future Shock suspension, too. First developed for the latest Roubaix, then put on the Diverge, the Future Shock is a short travel, coil sprung suspension built into the steerer tube, suspending the rider rather than the bike…but it works remarkably well. And now it’ll take the edge of potholes, curbs and speed bumps on all-new alloy and carbon Sirrus frames…
The frames get revised fit with a shorter reach and higher stack, with a more linear progression from size to size. They’re all new, with alloy and carbon frames, mixed and matched with new alloy and carbon forks. Carbon models also get a slick, hidden seatpost binder, giving them the same premium look as their high end carbon Crux cyclocross bikes.
The carbon versions also get thru axles front and rear.
All models get a full suite of Specialized cockpit parts, including new ergonomic Body Geometry grips and bar ends.
Across the range, all of the bikes get a little lighter than before, too, and they get fender mounts with more robust M5 bolts. Alloy models add extra attachment points on the fork legs and seatstays for racks or side-mounted bags.
The women’s lineup adds step-thru frames at several trim levels. Prices start at $430 for the Base V-brake model, up to $2,300 for Sirrus Pro Carbon.
