If you've ever felt torn between a "traditional" road bike and a dedicated touring rig, you're not alone. Now, though, the Sequoia Elite gives you both by combining the two in one genre-bending bike. It has everything you need to hit the road and not look back. The Sequoia's path to adventure starts at the frame, which Specialized constructed from Premium Cr-Mo tubing. This material is coveted for its strength, light weight, and tuned ride quality. And they took this a step further by selecting tubes that are specific to each frame size, ensuring that every frame rides exactly as intended. The Adventure Geometry is unique in that it skews the line between a traditional road bike and a dedicated touring rig. You'll find an ample wheelbase and low bottom bracket for control, but the chainstays and tube angles ensure that you'll be able to travel efficiently and quickly, regardless of whether or not your rig is loaded. A beefy FACT carbon fiber fork is sure to take the sting out of harsh roads. And when you're deep into said roads, you'll be thankful for the extra water bottle mount found on its fork leg. Digging into the details, the frame is outfitted with an ample number of mounts for water, racks, and fenders. And for the build, they included reliable parts, like a Shimano 105 groupset, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and hand-built Hayfield wheels that are cased in wide, 2Bliss Ready tires.
