Going fast is as much about attitude as it is raw power, and the Era Expert Carbon 29er has sass to spare. With high-performance components, plus a lightweight carbon frame and Roval Carbon wheels, this bike's ready to help convert your raw power into your best time ever—and maybe a podium spot to boot. Designed and engineered to be the fastest, lightest, and best-fitting women's full-suspension XC machine around, it's the only woman's XC bike that dynamically reads terrain for everything from uphill sprints to singletrack descents. Efficient, fast, powerful—you two are made for each other.

  • The Era’s lightweight, FACT 9m carbon frame is designed with Women's Competitive XC 29 Geometry and features internal cable routing and a built-in SWAT Tool cradle so you’ll always have an EMT multi-tool on hand.
  • The FOX/Specialized remote Mini Brain does the thinking for you, and is the only shock that knows the difference between rider-induced and trail-induced bumps on the ground, making it the most efficient suspension of its kind.
  • Handcrafted, Roval Control Carbon 29 disc wheels are built tough to resist hard impacts, yet are lightweight and stiff to ensure great race performance, ensuring you climb like a champ and accelerate out of corners with purpose.
