    Why buy a Specialized?

    The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved, the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.

    Best warranty, fastest turnaround

    Specialized is confident with their quality and has one of the bike industry's best warranties out there. Frames and Roval wheels have a lifetime warranty if you register your bike within 90 days of purchase. The warranty is also transferrable to a subsequent owner, who then get 2 years from the original retail purchase date. Specialized NZ headquarters is based in Christchurch, which gives us the best access to parts and we can even process warranties the same day in some cases.
