Enduro means pedaling up climbs, then charging hard and getting rowdy on the downs; Specialized's Enduro Expert Carbon 650B is tailor made to do just that. This ride shreds trail with a 160mm Pike RC fork up front and 165mm of rear travel deftly handled by a DB Air Inline shock. When it's time to climb back up and do it again, a FACT carbon mainframe and FSR rear suspension boasts a huge amount of traction paired with efficiency. Like all longer-travel bikes should, the Expert has a remote-actuated Command Post dropper post and 2.3-inch wide, tubeless tires so you can ease off the SRAM Guide RS brakes and let the properly wide Roval Traverse wheels trounce terra firma. With or without gravity's assistance, a pro-level SRAM X01 11-speed drivetrain lays down your power and the big, red S's own bar, stem, and renowned saddle continue the enduro theme perfectly.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration.
