Prototype 2011 Specialized P3 Dirt Jump Mountain Bikes Spotted

VitalMTB has a sneak peak at 2011 Specialized P3 prototype dirt jump bikes.  These are so fresh that even our boy over at Big S doesn’t have photos of them, so we’re borrowing VMTB’s video.  Here are the bullet points:

  • 2011 P3 will be frameset only, P2 will be sold as completes.
  • Frame weight, 4.7lbs
  • Frame price, $500, includes headset, seat, post and rear dropout hardware for SS or gears
  • Tapered headtube designed around integrated headset
  • 69 degree head angle, 1/2 degree steeper than 2010
  • 12.25-inch bottom bracket height, raised from 2010
  • They removed the 6mm offset from the rear end to better accomodate aftermarket SS rear hubs
  • Strengthened junction at seat tube/top tube/seat stays
  • Cable guides for full shifter and brake housing
  • Lower standover than 2010 P series frames
  • 22.5-inch top tube length

We did get word from Specialized that they’ll have a number of new goodies to show us at Sea Otter, including bikes and tires, among other things…stay tuned.
