Wait-a long-travel trail bike that climbs well and goes hard on the trail? Yeah, we didn’t think it was possible either-until we designed the Enduro Elite. It’s plenty stiff, nice and snappy, and with 29″ wheels, descends like a bike possessed. The quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry.Basically, Specialized modernized it- slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever.
