Specialized SWAT Technology

1 minute read.

For the mountain bike crowd, Specialized made SWAT™ a hallmark component of their designs. This equates to fully integrated emergency repair solutions, like their frame-mounted EMT multi-tool and top cap chain tool, to solve any trailside mechanical repair. And by committing to the ideology that all of Specialized's frames should be able to comfortably house a water bottle, Specialized also eliminated the need to wear a back-sweat-inducing hydration pack.

For on-the-bike storage solutions, Specialized has taken a similar "overkill" approach to their designs. For the triathlon contingent, they've created integrated storage solutions, like the Fuel Cell, Fuelselage, and Tripod, to provide ways to carry your food, air, and tools that don't detract from the Shiv's aerodynamic advantage on the road.

Most impressively, though, Specialized's patented SWAT™ Door provides select frames with the ultimate in integrated storage solutions. With a simple push and pull at the down tube's water bottle cage, you gain access to a massive amount of storage, all without compromising the integrity or ride quality of the frame. Whatever you can fit in there, you can ride with, so be creative and keep your ride essentials where you want them—off your back and on the bike.
