Specialized's P.3 has an enviable lineage. It has been, and still is, ridden by some of the best slopestyle, freeride, and progressive athletes in the game. The P.3 delivers a proven ride that doesn't shy away from the big lines. The butted aluminum frame is tough. Tough enough to take more than a few cased jumps and the progression of learning new tricks. Up front there's a Manitou Circus Expert fork that smooths out overshot trannies, as well as bumpy run-ins. The Truvativ Descendent crank and Pressfit bottom bracket give you the power to carve your way in and out of the big set. And it skims the ground on burly, double-wall, 32mm-wide rims with Specialized's own Renegade Slopestyle tires. If you need to scrub some speed, Hayes Radar hydraulic discs are on board, and Specialized's P-Series components ensure that nothing's holding you back on your way to living up to this bike's lineage.
This bike is a beast, I have the 04 model and I love it, it has been everywhere and handeled everthing from doing vert and freeride at Rays Indore Bike park to extreame DH with the addition of A Stratos srt/8 fork with 8in of travle and it rides as good as when I through back on the stock fork, I have beaten it and it has beat me and it is still alwayes ready to go to on the next ride and to the next challange.
