Inside Specialized HQ

Yesterday, the team headed to Chessington for a world of adventure…The guys weren’t visiting the famous theme park though, instead they were heading to the UK headquarters of Specialized to see the new range of bikes, parts and accessories for 2017.

Whilst we can’t share any details of the new range just yet, their HQ is a wash with bike history and interesting geeky bike tech. This was my first visit to Specialized so admittedly I looked like a tourist taking pictures every 5 seconds…Here’s a selection of some of coolest things I saw..
