First Ride: 2017 Specialized Enduro

Specialized enduro comp

Aside from feeling significantly harsher when smashing through sections of trail, there was a noticeable top-out sensation when traveling from full compression to full rebound at high speeds. This provided plenty of smiles especially when pointed downhill. But Specialized saw how quickly geometry trends were evolving, and they sensed the need to respond just as quickly. Harder to find the pressure sweet spot than with 2-3- 2. The Enduro presents a very good case for conservatism in design; it is a highly evolved, well-thought-out, very-well-behaved, extremely capable bike.

Instead, it was usually my erratic pedal cadence or botched maneuvers in tight spots. Issue with pressure in rear break, I think its a warranty item. Testing out a 2018 Specialized Enduro Pro 29! Very neat cable routing from Spesh. Bottom Line As a newbie who splits my time between trail riding and a lift-accessed bike park, the Enduro Elite 27. A lot of features which are popular now, such as long front ends and short rear-ends, are things we have been doing for years. Wheel and tyre combo is heavy.

Review: Specialized Enduro Comp 29

Fit and Geometry Jumping onto the Medium Enduro was a simple as dialing in a few suspension preferences, adjusting the seat-post, and letting her rip. Here they are next to each other for reference; the biggest difference of course being the frame materiel, suspension travel, and of course the wheel size. I may have a set on my next bike. Seb's much happier back-to-back testing suspension on a wet Welsh hillside than riding the latest five-figure bikes on some sunny press trip - although he quite likes that too! I use it to hold a spare tube, tire pump, shock pump, patch kit, and an ultralight jacket. My friend with the 2019 Enduro 29 likes to talk about how he basically has a mini bike shop in his downtube. In getting the bike set up a feature I really dig is the auto-sag on the rear suspension. Luckily the only thing that got severely damaged was my pride, and my confidence descended faster than this bike.

Cons: Tires have thin sidewalls. But overall the bike was pretty solid, and put up with my abuse with no complaints. In our opinion based on the time on it, we would have to agree that the new charger cartridge in it plus the other features of the fork design means it is exceptionally good and gave a supple active ride. Check the Specs: Today we are on the 2018 Specialized Enduro Pro 29er. There is always something better and the minute you get used to what you have, that is the same minute you start wondering what is next. This bike just annihilates everything in its path and with all that travel makes rough descents feel like freshly paved tarmac. Speaking of limits, the geometry of the Enduro seems politely restrained amid the current crop of super-long reach, super-slack head angle, super-short fork rake competitors that are currently in vogue.

Set your saddle flat at full height, then the rear of the saddle tips down as you lower it. Specialized Mountain Bikes Specialized mountain bikes make it a breeze to navigate steep hills, head downhill with speed and control, or simply enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride over whatever rugged terrain comes your way. It feels like a 150. Because of the larger wheel, the Enduro 29 naturally has a taller stack height, but its new incarnation got a few millimeters added to its bottom bracket height and a few more sliced off its head tube. I wish all forks came with the sag markers like RockShox, but with this Ohlins Fork, I had to dust off my brain and do some math.

What amazed me most about the Enduro 29 was its ability to scale the multitude of steep, punchy climbs with confidence and stability—two adjectives normally reserved for describing descending characteristics. Full spec and pricing info on. So all that is to say is that, if you like the sound of the Enduro 27. . I found my proper setup in real-time on a single ride, something not easy to do in blown-out conditions.

That makes it lower even than the and probably too low to run 27. You can start a subscription by or calling 800 767-0345. The aggressive geometry seems to work better than harder and faster you ride though the bike can certainly perform on tamer trails as well. To me, the Enduro felt very similar to the Stumpjumper while climbing, with the only discernible differences on my end being that the Enduro was noticeably heavier, and its slacker front end wandered a tiny bit more on steep sections. Tweaking the rebound to suit riding style meant that the bike felt very good, taking all the big hits and rough chatter that characterised the Enduro World Series trails. Since I struggle on climbs no matter what, I was happy to deal with the Enduro on the up in exchange for more forgiveness and stability on the down. Some standout parts for me during my time with the Enduro were the brakes, tires, and the shock.

Seb studied experimental physics at university, and he's now happily using wasting his degree experimenting with different bike setups, trying to work out what works best and why. For years, the cable housing on Specialized bikes has looped under the bottom bracket on its way to the chainstays. But Specialized saw how quickly geometry trends were evolving, and they sensed the need to respond just as quickly. But I looove that low Eagle gear, and when I do have it set up properly, it has shifted well. Other high-performing Specialized mountain bikes for sale can include full suspension models such as the P Slope, Stumpjumper or Enduro Comp, as well as hardtail models such as the Crave and Rock Hopper Comp.
