Specialized has expanded its ever popular Sirrus range of bikes, which are regarded as among the best hybrid bikes,  to help push it far beyond its original, urban commuter user base with the launch of the new Specialized Sirrus X.

Boasting the ability to take the performance of the Sirrus and push it out of its town and tarmac comfort zone, Specialized are pushing this new Sirrus X as being possibly the one bike to do-it-all.
