    I think it is because your Mobile Device is looking for the mobile version of this site "m.specialized.com" which either no longer exists or never did. If your browser has the setting try desktop version. Or manually type in "www.specialized.com"

    Yes, I just tested this and selecting desktop version of the site fixes it.

    You might want to contact the webmaster or site owners, and tell them about it. Get them to fix it.

    EDIT:
    m.specialized (dot) com, what's usually supposed to be the mobile site, there's some sort of suspicious redirect going on to an advertising affiliate and referral site. So I guess it's been hacked and pwned. Definitely worth reporting it to them.
