Specialized Sirrus X 3.0

The Specialized Sirrus X 3.0 is a beefed-up version of Specialized's fitness bike, and has a bit more of a 'do-it-all' attitude. With wide wheels and tyres matched to a mountain bike riser bar, this bike is just as nimble on the byways as it is bombing around town or getting you to work.

The X models add a bit more versatility over the standard Sirrus range, thanks to 42mm gravel tyres, an extra-wide handlebar for better handling off-road and a decent spread of gears from a 1x set-up as well.

On the road the Sirrus X cruises along quite well. The lower gears give you decent acceleration for nipping away from traffic lights or junctions, and the reasonably quick handling allows you to change direction with ease when the need arises.

Mudguard and rack mounts can be found on the frame and fork, though if you want to go down the commuter route the EQ models of the Sirrus X come fitted with mudguards, a rear rack and a dynamo front light.
