Product description

The  AWOL Comp is a Cr-Mo framed long-distance tourer and utility bike equipped with high end components. It’s rugged and practical with the feel of steel for a smoother ride over rough surfaces. The frame is fitted with 29” MTB wheels for easy rolling on any terrain.

Specialized have built the AWOL Comp for races like the Transcontinental where you need to be self sufficient while racing thousands of miles.

You can buy the AWOL Comp through a 0% interest Tredz Finance package.

Frame & Fork

Key to ride feel is a Cr-Mo steel frame and fork offering improved compliance than an aluminium frame can deliver. Performance is smooth on rougher conditions, and more comfortable over long distances.

Adventure Geometry (aka distance rider geometry) puts you into a more upright for efficient riding position.Naturally you get rack and fender mounts on the frame and fork so you can carry luggage at the rear and up front.  

Components

The AWOL Comp is well spec’d with high quality components that are optimised for endurance riding. The SRAM 11 speed ‘one by’ drivetrain comes with an ultra wide range 10-42T MTB cassette giving you all the gears you’re going to need. One-by setups are great for distance riding because they are simple to use and reliable.

SRAM’s Rival hydraulic disc brakes are powerful with a great feel. They work reliably in all weather and terrain conditions.

Tough double wall 29” wheels are wrapped in 1.9” wide Specialized Ground Control tyres to take on the roughest roads and gravel tracks. They are also 2Bliss ready for easy conversion to a tubeless setup.


Key Features :

  • The custom butted Cr-Mo steel frame provides plenty of stiffness, while still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort. Along with the integrated fender and rack mounts on both the frame and Cr-Mo fork, the AWOL provides the perfect blend of versatility and performance.
  • The alloy, double-wall disc wheels can stand up to mile after mile of adventure, while the Specialized Ground Control tyres provide plenty of traction on varying terrain and come 2Bliss ready.
  • When paired with the SRAM XG-1150 11-speed cassette, the FSA Gossamer Pro XX1 crankset provides a wide range of gearing options, while offering the streamlined performance of a one-by drivetrain.
  • SRAM Rival 22 hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful, confident braking and modulation.

Awol Comp

A mystery that might be cleared up, the spec states that the bolts on the chainset are 4 in number, ABS and that there are 5 bolts, with one hidden behind the drive side crank. I CANNOT FIND IT !

Specialized AWOL comp.

Other manufacturers may have got there before Specialized with this type of bike but in the hard to nail down category they have done a brilliant job with the AWOL comp. The ride of my life, and I have owned quite a few bikes in my time too. Simplicity of gearing, big rolling wheels and tures, steel frame makes for a lightweight comfortable ride, something I treasure in my old age and on British roads. Only niggle is fitting mudguards might be a gaff. Otherwise dig deep and buy you won't regret it.
