From technical back-country journeys to stage racing through a mountain range, the new Enduro is built to answer the call of adventure. Already the most capable machine on the mountain, the Enduro is now available in both 29er and 650b wheel sizes, and with lightweight carbon fiber and alloy frame options there’s a perfect Enduro for all riding styles.
They said it couldn’t be done—a 155mm-travel 29er. With dialed geo for navigating technical terrain, a tight wheelbase for agile handling, plus lightweight, yet strong, wheelsets and components, the Enduro 29 is a true All-Mountain game changer. The 650b Enduro features dialed all mountain geometry, 165mm of plush, yet efficient FSR suspension, and the Command Post IR dropper seatpost to provide the optimal riding position on the fly.
What’s Awesome About It
By combining relaxed, plush geometries with added torsional stiffness in select areas, Specialized feels the result is a bike that can absorb huge hits and still climb swiftly. The “X-Wing” design with tapered head tube connects the top tube and down tube for an ultra-stiff design and durability at a lighter weight. The lighter frame design features a new mount for the custom-tuned shock, which coupled with our FSR technology provides 165/155mm of active, plush travel that’s efficient under pedaling forces.
Specialized designed this lightweight carbon wheelset with 30mm wide rims to give the tire more volume. The tubeless-ready carbon rim is stronger and stiffer than alloy, so the wheels remain in-true longer, and absorb impact better. Zero Bead Hook simplifies the rim manufacturing process, resulting in a lighter-weight rim that with edges more resistant to sharp rocks and rough terrain.
