With the all-new Enduro Elite Carbon, we're still scratching our heads, is it faster on the way up or the way down? But at this point, Who cares? This thing is fun as hell. Specialized gave it a whole new geometry, with a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever. They even added some brand new bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, and made "old" new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed with legendary X-Wing layout with a FACT 9m carbon fibre chassis and M5 alloy rear end. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush travel at both the front and rear. And handling suspension duties out back is the talk of the town rear shock, the RockShox Monarch Plus with Rx Trail Tune. Specialized even made it to be compatible with the 6Fattie wheel system, so you'll always be ready for the trail ahead. For the build, this Enduro is packed with drool-worthy gear, like SRAM one-by 11-speed shifting, powerful Guide R brakes with S4 calipers, hand-built Roval wheels, and a RockShox Lyrik RC fork up front.
