Influenced by the legendary Demo, Specialized pours some of that World Cup-winning magic into the Status I. Its burly M4-aluminum frame comes equipped with an X-Fusion coil shock that dishes out 200mm of active, terrain-stomping FSR travel. Up front, a 170mm travel X-Fusion fork soaks up the rough stuff while keeping you on your chosen line. All that suspension keeps the stout Specialized wheels and fat 2.3-inch tires glued to the ground. And for those pedaling sections, the 8-speed drivetrain keeps the power coming with TruVativ Ruktion cranks, a DH-friendly chainguide, and reliable SRAM shifting. Plus, this rig features the awesome stopping power of Avid disc brakes with a big 8-inch rotor up front.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration.
