The new 2021 Chisel mountain bikes from Specialized are XC race ready but still great for ripping singletrack:

Specialized have been producing winning XC race bikes for 40 years, and the Chisel draws on all that collected experience to produce an alloy framed rig that can cut it against more expensive carbon framed rivals. It’s designed to crush climbs, be fast through corners, and stable through rock gardens.

Utilizing D’Aluisio Smartweld Technology and their proprietary M5 aluminium, Specialized have kept the frame weight down to a carbon-comparable 1400g without compromising strength or stiffness.

The frame tubing is designed to be laterally stiff for power transfer and acceleration, and to rail through corners, while retaining vertical compliance to get you through the rougher sections with less fatigue and trail chatter.

Although they are full pedigree race bikes, the geometry is tuned to be confident, yet nimble with downhill stability, and without sacrificing climbing performance.

With nice features like dropper post compatibility, Chisel is a winning choice for anyone looking to really rip fast singletrack, whether racing or just for fun.

Prices range from £1399 to £1699– limited stock will be arriving soon.
