Product Details

Specialized Chisel Expert 2019 Hardtail MTB

This classy black RockShox Reba RL / SRAM NX Eagle 1x12-equipped 29er hardtail is built on Specialized's best D'Aluisio M5 lightweight alloy mountain bike frame tubing. Just goes to show: in Specialized's hands, the Chisel is no blunt tool.

Key Features

  • M5 aluminium frame - lightweight and ultra-stiff with speed-focused XC 29 Geometry
  • Custom RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 90/100mm of smooth travel (size-specific)
  • SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain
  • Powerful SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes
  • 25-millimetre-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction
  • D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing - for explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance

Here's How Specialized Describe Their Chisel Expert

Often times, carbon gets all of the attention, but as our Senior Advanced R&D Engineer, Chuck Teixeira, says, "If you haven't ridden an aluminium bike lately, you haven't ridden an aluminium bike." And with its D'Aluisio Smartweld frame, the Specialized Chisel Expert with two-by gearing is no exception.

Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy's gotten such a bad rap.
