Enduro Elite 27.5

2018 Enduro Elite 27.5

Ok, we'll admit. We've been geeking out over the Enduro Elite 27.5 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 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 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,

ITS A GREAT BIKE, PITTY ABOUT THE PINK BIT.

ITS A GREAT SPEC'ED BIKE, BUT IM GOING THE FULL GX EAGLE BOOST 12 SPEED BEFORE I USE IT, AS ITS COMES WITH 11 SPEED NORMAL WITH THE RACEFACE CRANK?, ALL OF WHICH HAVE BEEN IMPROVED ON THE 2019 MODEL, I BOUGHT IT AT THE END OF 2018 SO GOT A GREAT DEAL OF NEARLY HALF PRICE, ALTHOUGH SOMEONE AT SPECIALIZED SEEMS TO OF HAD A FUNNY TURN WITH COLOUR PINK ON THE BIKE WHICH I HAD TO THINK LONG AND HARD TO SEE WAY PAST IT, BUT IM GOING TO COVER THIS WITH ALOAD OF STICKERS, ALSO IVE FITTED A BASH GUARD/ CHAIN RETAINER/ TENSIONER AND ALTHOUGH THE FRAME HAS ONLY 2 MOUNTING POINTS IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL STILL DO THE JOB OK.
