2019 Specialized Sequoia Elite

Professional Reviews

On dirt and gravel it’s fun, and small vibrations are well-absorbed, but its weight means it can crash a bit in potholes and rain run-off gullies, or over bigger stones. The wheels and tyres are 2Bliss Ready in Specialized speak, and converting them would improve ride feel. The Sequoia’s steel frame sucks up a chunk of the budget, leaving its part-105 component spec looking a bit light at this price. But the slightly eclectic build delivers an holistic ride experience, that’s better on road, but is capable of exploring far from it.
