Specialized 2018 Enduro Comp 27.5
Nimble, flick'able, agile—whatever you want to call it, our Enduro Comp 27.5 embodies it in one hell of a beautiful, redesigned alloy package.
We gave it a geometry features 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.
We even added some cool 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 our legendary X-Wing layout with a FACT 9m carbon fiber chassis and M5 alloy rear end. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 170mm of plush rear and 170mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting.
For the build, this Enduro is packed with send-it-ready gear, like SRAM one-by 11-speed shifting, powerful Guide R brakes, crazy-strong Roval wheels, and a RockShox Yari fork up front.
