2018 Specialized Enduro Comp 650b
Who says that carbon should have all the fun? Not us. Our Enduro Comp 29/6Fattie flies in the face of this sentiment, with a ground-up redesign that’ll have you saying “woah” like Keanu all over the trail.
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 made “old” new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To make the Enduro capable of standing up to any trail, the frame is constructed with our legendary X-Wing layout and M5 alloy. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush rear and 160mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be “adjusted” via a shock extension with a “low/high” setting.
Handling suspension duties out back, meanwhile, is the talk of the town rear shock, the RockShox Monarch Plus with our Rx All Mountain Tune. And for the icing on the trail cake, we even made this bike to be compatible with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire system (wheels and tires not included), so you’ll always be ready for the trail ahead.
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.
- The frame has an X-Wing layout with an M5 alloy construction. Together, these elements combine to form the perfect balance of efficiency, weight savings, and unparalleled strength. It’s also been built off our 29 Geometry, which lends itself to running 6Fattie wheels and tires (only a 7mm BB drop), in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal routing and a return to a threaded bottom bracket, you get a bike that’s clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer.
- RockShox Yari RC fork features a 15x110mm Maxle Ultimate thru-axle, a Solo Air™ spring, and 160mm of plush travel to take on big hits and bumpy terrain with supreme speed and efficiency.
- SRAM’s 11-speed GX rear derailleur serves up powerful and precise one-by shifting, so you can say goodbye to dropped chains and unnecessary grams.
