SWAT – Special Weapons And Tactics – some super pro policemens that save lifes.
Specialized revamps the concept creating its own SWAT = Storage, Water, Air, Tools.
What, supermens able to fix your bike, any time, any where ? No… ^^
The SWAT Concept from Specialized is a kind of toolbox housed behing the bottle cage. Some others tools could be stored on some curves of the frame (such as a compact multi tools on the Epic).
Hopefully for riders, the SWAT is not the main innovation of Specialized for 2014. The SWAT is pragmatic – there are no doubt. But the debate “what is the best between a backpack and that kind of box – that burdening the bike” is far from finished.
