SPECIALIZED - ENDURO ELITE 650B
NEW FOR 2018
Ok, we'll admit. We've been geeking out over the Enduro Elite 650b for a while now. We know that we made it and everything, but still, its design just kind of rules.
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 fibre 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 drool-worthy gear, like SRAM one- by 11-speed shifting, powerful Code R brakes, hand-built Roval wheels, and a Öhlins RXF 36 fork up front. And handling suspension duties out back, meanwhile, is the talk of the town rear shock, the RockShox Monarch Plus with our Rx All Mountain Tune,
