Sure, you can decide to buck the status quo, or you could just huck it. Specialized chose the latter with the all-new Status 140. The result? Not just a new bike, but an entirely new platform that's changed the whole understanding of what a do-it-all bike can actually do.
But what's with the different-sized wheels? So glad you asked. Take the smaller wheelbase and shorter chainstays made possible by having a 27.5-inch rear wheel, and pair them with the increased traction and rolling speed, made possible by a 29-inch wheel up front, and you've got a bike that's ready to throw it down.
Or, think of it as the ability to flick right but plow left into a techy switchback, straight-line it through that longer-than-you-thought stretch of chunder inducing pedalling, without breaking a sweat, and throw down some serious flair on your local flow trail. All in one nice, tight, package. The Status 140 also adopts Specialized's Style-Specific Sizing that not only lets you find the right fit, but also get your desired reach and wheelbase to really let your preferred handling characteristics come alive.
Focused on fun and featuring Mixed-Wheel Trail Geometry, the Status frameset is a fewer frills, all thrills FSR delivery system crafted from hard-charging—and hard-wearing—M5 alloy and is designed not only to take a hit, but keep asking for more.
Fox’s FLOAT 36 Rhythm calls the venerable Grip damper into service in the name of rowdy riders everywhere, offering impressively controlled travel with plenty of trail-feel that puts confidence on speed dial. The two-position Sweep adjustment ensures the FLOAT 36 Rhythm is right at home dealing out its 140-millimeters of travel in just about any environment while 36-millimeter stanchions promise plenty of stiffness for precise handling at the limit.
Quality suspension unlocks some serious free speed, so to slow it all down, Specialized tasked SRAM’s proven Code R brakes with stopping duties. Forged four-piston calipers offer serious stopping power, while 200-millimeter rotors on both ends of the bike promise plenty of fade-free bite when it matters.
