This year, Specialized skipped their major press event where we usually get to weigh and photo everything and get all the nitty gritty. But, their dealers still had their event, and thanks to the legendary Dale Brown over at Cycles de Oro, we’ve got a huge gallery of images and a few details.
From what we’re seeing, there’s a bit more excitement on the road side, even with the new 650B version of the Enduro that was just shown in detail. The pavement, or, rather, off-pavement, side is being led by the Diverge gravel bike. At least for those two, we have some pretty solid information and spec.
There’s plenty more to see though, starting off with the new Venge LR (Lunch Ride), shown above.
