Who says that carbon should have all the fun? Not Specialized. Their Enduro Comp flies in the face of this sentiment with a ground-up redesign that'll have you saying "woah," like Keanu all over the trail. They gave it a whole new geometry, with 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. Specialized 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 the 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 travel at the front and 165mm in the rear. And handling suspension duties out back is the RockShox Monarch Plus, with a Specialized Rx Trail Tune. They even made this 29er compatible with the 6Fattie wheel system, so you'll always be ready for the trail ahead. 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. For the rest of the build, this Enduro is packed with drool-worthy gear, like powerful Guide R brakes with S4 calipers, stupid-fast 29-inch Roval wheels, and a RockShox Yari fork.

Glad the salesman at The Bike Shop talked me into a 29r. I went in expecting to by the 27.5 model. I've been comparing times vs my xc bike (Rocky Mt Element) and I have been climbing and descending faster on this bike. Not sure I need two bikes now? Really confidence inspiring bike on technical trails (Razor's Edge).
This bike is has great suspension and it is very durable.
