Product description

The Specialized Rhyme Comp is a women’s specific long-travel trail bike for hitting the trails...hard. This is an MTB for women who want to tear up their local trail centre on a very capable and nimble machine. One for aggressive terrain.

Specialized have optimised geometry based on the 650b wheel size with a slack head tube angle, short chainstays and long 150mm travel.

Frame

At the core of the Comp is an M5 alloy frame which is strong, light and stiff making for excellent trail riding qualities. A slack 67 degree head angle (66.5 on size XS) gives you greater control at speed - ideal for more aggressive descents. 420mm chainstays are fairly short and tuck the rear-end in for a more nimble feel.

150mm travel puts the Rhyme Comp firmly in the long-travel trail bike category. To lower your centre of gravity the bottom bracket is a low335mm to help improve handling in the corners.

A lower standover height than her brother the Stumpjumper and a shorter toptube length provide a better fit for smaller riders. Frame sizes go down to XS which would fit a rider of 4ft 10”. Sizes go up to medium, so larger riders should consider a 2016 Stumpjumper. It features the same frame and angles and almost the same spec, just in a bigger size.

Internal cable routing keeps the aesthetic clean, but also means you’ll need to less maintenance on your cables. A 12mm bolt thru axle on the rear keeps the back-end nice and stiff, while a 15mm bolt thru up-front helps with stiffness and improves steering precision.

An IRcc Command Dropper post with 100mm (size M) of saddle adjustment (75mm on XS, S) that can be used on the fly means you can get the optimal setup for the section of trail you’re currently riding.

Suspension

RockShox Revelation RC3 fork is very capable for trail riding and comes with easy rebound and compression damping.

The Fox Float CTD evolution shock also comes with easy adjustability. This shock comes with women’s RX trail tune which takes into account the lower average weight of a female rider. It has been tuned with a larger volume to make it easier for lighter riders to make use of the maximum travel. This is not something you get from every manufacturer.

Key to the Rhyme Comp performance though is ‘FSR’. This is one of the best and most effective suspension systems for an MTB. It is fully active and works independently from pedalling and braking forces.

A 4 bar linkage with a second pivot next to the rear axle (on the chainstays) allows the back wheel to move in a linear path. Chain tension is not affected and there is no pedal kickback or pedal induced bob. This system is what makes the Rhyme such an efficient climber, with confident control on the descents.

Components

Equipped is a SRAM X9/X7 2x10 drivetrain with a great range of gears for rugged terrain. Shifting is precise and extremely reliable. Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes provide all the stopping power you’re going to need on the trails. These brakes have great modulation and are reliable - as you’d expect from Shimano.

Roval rims with a 29mm rim width are perfect for aggressive riding, providing excellent grip when matched with the 2.3” Butcher and Purgatory tyres.

Contact points are all optimised for women riders with a narrower 720mm bar (750mm on the Stumpy) and Myth saddle and size specific cranks providing extra comfort and confidence as you ride.

The 2016 Rhyme Comp is an extremely capable long-travel trail bike. It is in a league of it’s own. Handling and performance are dialled for hard hitting hacks.

Key Features :

  • M5 alloy Trail Chassis w/ Rhyme FSR rear end blends durability, stiffness, and light weight, while 150mm of travel and Trail 650b Geometry provide more than capable handling.

  • Connected with our FSR 6-Pack Linkage, a custom FOX FLOAT Evolution rear shock features AUTOSAG for easy setup and 150mm of plush, adjustable suspension, while our Women's Rx Tune provides a more supple, responsive, and efficient feel for climbing up and descending down the trail.

  • Roval 650b rims have an ultra-wide 29mm internal width and an alloy construction for increased durability, stability, and speed down the trail.

  • Every component and touch point of the bike, from the handlebars to saddle to the crankarm length, is tailored for both women and rider size.
