This is the best guide to understand the Specialized S sizing!
The S sizing is based on headtube lengths and standover heights, which allows you to choose the size that best matches where, and how, you ride. Smaller S-Size numbers are going to be more nimble, thanks to their shorter reach and front-center measurement, while larger S-Sizes deliver more stability and a roomier ride.
Only the full suspension Trail/Enduro/Downhill bikes share the S sizing guide.
