Don't tell your boss, but Specialized is about to help you go AWOL! Whether it's for a night, a weekend, or "to be determined," the AWOL Expert comes equipped to make your dream trip a reality. The high-quality chromoly frame is the proper choice for all your touring endeavors, with bump compliance, incredible durability, and a sweet, comfortable ride that can only be chalked up to the unique feel of steel. Rolling on tough-as-nails Borough Armadillo tires and kept under firm control by a pair of TRP HY/RD hydraulic disc brakes, the AWOL Expert devours the road ahead, handling tarmac, dirt, and everything in between with aplomb. Wide-range is the name of the game in touring drivetrains, and the Shimano Tiagra shifters, compact crank, and whopping 11-36 cassette will get you to trail's end in spite of any climbs along the way. And let's not forget the touring package that graces the AWOL Expert: front and rear rack mounts, a Shimano dynamo front hub, and a road-smoothing Specialized CG-R carbon seatpost. So clock out and get ready to go AWOL!
