Product Information

Specialized Chisel Expert 1X Men's Mountain Bike 2018

Welcome to true off-road riding. Featuring an aluminium frame that is as durable as it is comfortable through Specialized's work with R&D Engineer Chuck Teixeira. The Chisel features SRAM GX one-by shifting technology, practically eliminating dropped chains and reducing overall bike weight. As well as this the custom RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 90/100mm of smooth travel that ensures you shock remains limited no matter the surface. All in all the Chisel is a great way to start your off-road adventure. 

Full Specification


D'Aluisio (DSW) Aluminium Design

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 Specialized 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 as gotten such a bad rap.

XC 29 Geometry

XC 29 geometry features a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider range of fit. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency.

SRAM GX and NX Componentry

The build on this Chisel features a mix of SRAM GX and NX one-by components for efficient shifts and added protection against dropping the chain. You'll also find powerful SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, a dependable RockShox Reba RL fork with up to 100mm of travel (size-specific), and 25-millimeter-wide alloy wheels that are optimized for weight and traction.
