Well in case you haven’t guessed we here at KB Cycles Newcastle, The North East Leading Cycle Shop and the premier Trek, Scott, Haibike and Transition bikes dealer are proud to introduce Specialized Bikes into the fold.
Specialized is a brand that we have wanted to be part of what we do here at the shop for a very long time and we are all buzzing at the prospect of the bikes arriving next week.
We will be Specialized bikes only independent bike shop in Newcastle upon Tyne and we have got big plans for the brand. But, lets be clear even though we have big plans for Specialized bikes they will not be taking the place of Trek, Scott, Haibike or Transition Bikes. They will be running along side our already awesome brands to give you, our customers, the choice and range we pride ourselves on.
Specialized have such an extensive range of bikes and products it is going to very hard what we are going to have in stock and as much as we would love to have them all, we just don’t have the space. But we will be featuring some of there most well know bikes including…
The Roubaix take its name from the infamous Classic Paris-Roubaix race. Famously a race that is brutal on both the rider and the bike. Reducing fatigue is a pretty obvious factor in speeds, the more comfortable you are the less tired you’re bound to get. Put simply, Smoother is Faster and that is just what the Specialized Roubaix does, it creates a smooth ride with the innovative and unique Future Shock.
The Future Shock features up to 20mm of travel, and it’s positioned above the head tube in order to move in a vertical path. So when the front wheel encounters rough terrain, the bike moves up towards your hands and preserves your forward momentum without slowing you down. Since the Future Shock is positioned above the head tube, the wheelbase isn’t changing throughout the suspension’s travel, so you get the added benefit of extremely predictable handling. The Roubaix is perhaps the most relevant road bike Specialized make with the condition of the North Eastern roads and it will make a great edition along side the awesome Trek Domane!
The original Specialized Enduro broke the mold when it came to long travel trail mountain bikes. Specialized saw something in making trail mountain bike with longer travel and more down hill capability but you could pedal back to the top.
The new Specialized Enduro is no different, it is a bike that is equally as good going up as it is down. Lightening quick on the ascents and tear the tyres off fast on the downs.
Specialized bikes blazed the trail with their FSR Suspension platform that effectively isolates the chain a braking forces from interfering with the suspension. In turn FSR Technology delivers more comfort and efficiency. The Specialized Enduro will be a welcome edition to stand along side the Trek Remedy and Slash, and the Transition Sentinel and Patrol.
Specialized’s Tarmac is infamous, Peter Sagan’s bike of choice and the all new Tarmac is no different. Specialized have made the bike lighter, stiffer, and more responsive. It is their most complete race bike Specialized have ever made. More aero that the original Venge, which was designed for Mark Cavandish.
Specialized have achieved this by developing a new fork, dropping the rear seatstay and the d-shaped seatube and post. None have which have added any extra weight to the bike. The Specialized Tarmac’s race winning pedigree will if nicely along side the shop favorite in the Trek Emonda.
Specialized Turbo Levo
As Newcastle and the North East’s Number one Electric bike dealer this is the bike that we are most excited about, and it is going to fit right in along side our already industry ebike brands in Haibike and Trek.
The Specialized Turbo Levo is a bike that we get asked about all the time and now its available in carbon. The updated motor now produces 90Nm of torque making it the highest output on the market and its integration makes you take a closer look to see if it really is an electric bike.
We have the world’s number one for electric bikes, Haibike, and two of the biggest bike brands of the market all under one roof why go anywhere else for your electric bike.
