Specialized Status 160 Full Suspension Bike 2022
The mullet is back - and no better way to show it off but by riding the Edmonton River Valley trails with the Status 160! The Status 160 may be an all-new bike, but it’s really an all-new way of thinking about how to have the most fun possible on two wheels—even if that means they’re different sizes.
A 29-inch wheel offers up maximum cornering traction and roll-over capability in front while a 27.5 inch wheel out back brings with it shorter chainstays—and the party. Paired together with our playful Mixed Wheel-Size Trail Geometry the result is capital-F fun. Park-stomping, trail-slashing, getting-jibby-with-it fun.
We rounded out the Status 160’s fun-first frame with everything you need to keep the party going—big brakes, an X-Fusion Manic dropper post and Fox’s FLOAT 36 Rhthym Fork paired with a FLOAT X Performance shock, all brought together by the active, planted feel of our FSR suspension platform.
- Focused on fun and featuring our Mixed-Wheel Trail Geometry, the Status frameset is a fewer frills, all thrills FSR delivery system crafted from our hard-charging—and hard-wearing—M5 alloy and is designed not only to take a hit, but keep asking for more.
- Fox’s FLOAT 36 Rhythm calls their venerable Grip damper into service in the name of adventurous riders everywhere, offering impressively controlled travel with plenty of trail-feel that puts confidence on speed dial. The two-position Sweep adjustment ensures the FLOAT 36 Rhythm is right at home dealing out its 160-millimeters of travel in just about any environment while 36-millimeter stanchions promise plenty of stiffness for precise handling at the limit.
- Quality suspension unlocks some serious free speed, so to slow it all down, we tasked SRAM’s proven Code R brakes with stopping duties. Forged four-piston calipers offer serious stopping power, while 200-millimeter rotors on both ends of the bike promise plenty of fade-free bite when it matters.
- This bike is available and ready to test ride in Edmonton's favourite bike shop - United Sport & Cycle!
