SPECIALIZED - RHYME COMP 6FATTIE/29
NEW FOR 2018
In order to squeeze every last ounce of fun out of the trail, you need a bike that can take a hit and dish it right back out 10-fold. In other words, you need the Rhyme Comp 6Fattie/29.
To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tyre volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tyre System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine.
For the construction, we built it from our superlative M5 alloy that's lightweight and durable, and gave it a whole host of women's-specific components that tailor the ride to you. This means that you'll get a custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT rear shock with 150mm of travel, bars and cranks that are sized proportionately to female riders, and the fan-favourite Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle. Of course, the rest of the build spec is awesome, with SRAM's 11-speed GX one-by shifting, powerful Guide R hydraulic disc, and fast- rolling Roval Traverse alloy wheels.
