The Specialized Rhyme FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie is a hard hitting, women’s specific long-travel trail bike is built to tackle aggressive terrain. Tear up your local trail centre, and leave your buddies eating your dust.
The 6Fattie takes 650b wheels with wider rims (650+) and wraps them in 3” tyres for levels of traction, control and floatation you’ve yet to experience on a trail bike.
You can buy the Specialized Rhyme Comp 6Fattie through a 0% interest Tredz Finance Package.
This Rhyme 6Fattie comes with a plus sized fork and a wider 148mm rear hub in order to accommodate the larger tyre.
You carry more speed through the corners thanks to the added grip afforded by a larger contact patch between the tyre and the ground. A higher volume tyre allows you to run lower tyre pressures with less risk of pinch flats. This gives you more cushioning that acts as extra suspension so you can float over roots and rocks. Rolling resistance is slightly increased but far less important than the extra grip you get in return.
The Rhyme Expert Carbon is a blend of FACT 9m carbon composite (front triangle) and M5 alloy (rear triangle). This mix of materials creates a lightning fast, nimble and comfortable ride.
Geometry is dialled with a 67 degree head angle. This means you’ll be stable at speed - when you’re tearing down your favourite trail. 437mm chainstays when combined with the low bottom bracket height make for a nimble back-end and better handling through the corners.
Compared to her brother, the Stumpy, the Rhyme has a shorter toptube length to give a better fit for petite riders. The Expert Carbon 6Fattie 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 6Fattie Stumpjumper. It features the same frame and angles and almost the same spec, just in a bigger size.
Internal cable routing creates clean lines on the frame, whilst needing less maintenance. A 12mm bolt thru rear axle keeps the back-end nice and stiff, while a 15mm bolt-thru up-front helps with stiffness and steering precision.
Specialized have developed an innovative storage solution called SWAT door. Built into the downtube is a space which can hold your essentials such as an inner tube, pump, CO2 cartridges and nutrition.
Moving kit from your back to the downtube lowers your centre of gravity, and improves comfort whilst riding. The door combines with a bottle cage.
The Fox 34 Elite Plus fork offers premium level trail performance with 150mm travel that matches perfectly to the DPS shock. The Fox Float Performance DPS Shock is new for 2016 and offers more control over compression damping than the old CTD shocks. This makes it easier to set up the suspension. A Kashima coating makes for a more responsive feel.
The 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’s 6Fattie performance 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.
This system is what makes the Rhyme Expert 6Fattie such an efficient climber, with confident control on the descents.
Equipped is a SRAM X1/X01 1x11 drivetrain offering all the gears you need in a simple system that offers excellent chain retention. This is a performance level setup designed to eke the most out of your input. Matched to the drivetrain are the excellent Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes with tonnes of power and great modulation.
An IRcc Command Dropper post with 100mm of saddle adjustment (size M, 75mm on XS, S) allows for on the fly adjustment. Choose the optimal setup for the section you’re riding.
The Rhyme rolls on Roval Traverse wheels, these are a quality hand-built wheelset with easy tubeless setup. 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.
