There’s a time to haul and a time to haul ass—the SOURCE has got the chops for both. With a lightweight alloy frame with fitness geo to keep you riding in comfort, it powers you through the work week in hard-working style, but is always ready for those weekend adventures. Fully equipped with integrated racks, fenders, and a dynamo lighting system, and available in 7, 8 and 11 speed versions, it’s the perfect ‘fits right out of the box’ bike.
WHAT All new E5 alloy frames featuring smooth welds, internal cable routing, preinstalled racks and fenders (most models), and internal wiring for lighting system.
WHY To improve speed and handling while also boosting utility and style to better serve riders’ diverse needs throughout the line.
HOW Ultralight E5 alloy frame includes features borrowed from our high-end Specialized models: Precision internal cable routing is quicker to install, eliminates cable rattle, and offers superior shifting and braking performance by keeping grit and grime away from the cables in any weather. Smooth welds give the E5 frame a sleek, pro look, while features like factory racks and fenders mean out-of-box utility for multi-purpose riding.
custom rack/fender system
WHAT Custom-developed Specialized aluminum fender, plus Racktime
aluminum rack with “hidden” mounting hardware.
WHY Provides lightweight, reliable accessories without the hassle of installation, combined with state-of-the-art technical mounting solutions for a clean and functional execution.
HOW The custom rear fender and rack
are supported by a new “hidden” bracket solution that is invisibly integrated into
the fender. This provides outstanding rack stiffness and also holds the rear light wire. The bike is additionally equipped with all regular mounting eyelets for personalized rack solutions.
switchable dynamo lighting
WHAT First-ever hub dynamo light system that can be “switched off” if light is not needed, eliminating the drag. Plus a super bright Supernova LED head lamp and LED tail light.
WHY To provide a high-quality, high-power lighting system that is always there when you need it, but eliminates unnecessary drag on the front hub when you don’t.
HOW With a simple rotation of the switch on the outside of the front hub the lighting system is switched off, and the associated drag is eliminated. Lights can also be switched off at the source. This system also provides more light than any other dynamo system: at 370 lumens, only battery-powered systems can equal it.
