This Week in Bikes


- Bobby Ketchum

We've seen some beautiful new bikes come through in the past week, with the new 2018 Specialized models starting to become available. The white background product photos never do the colours any justice, they always look better in person. Let's take a look.

2018 S-Works Roubaix McLaren Di2

The McLaren Roubaix celebrates 50 years of Mclaren racing Gran Prix with a Roubaix in the classic Mclaren orange. There are only 150 of these worldwide, of which only 6 made it to New Zealand. These things are beautiful.

2018 Demo 8 Alloy

Cali Fade is a new colour for 2018. It's seen on a few different models throughout the range and looks awesome. Here's August's new bike with his classic white wheels.

2018 Epic Comp Carbon

Acid Pink is another new colour for 2018. It's really hard to describe this one or even capture it in a photo, but it looks amazing in person. Kudos to Specialized for going out there with a real wild colour, on the Men's version even! The new Epic is a great bike.

2018 Stumpjumper Coil Carbon

Another sweet bike for 2018, the Stumpjumper Coil was inspired by EWS racer Jared Graves who runs a Stumpy with coil shocks and big travel forks for a unique enduro setup. The Stumpy Coil comes with front and rear Ohlins coils, carbon frame and wheels and a super cool Gold on Purple Tint.
