Specialized enduro review
The specialized enduro comp is designed to be fast, efficient and an all round great performing bike. The bike comes with a lower gearing, 170mm of travel, 29″ wheels, and an incredible suspension, all of these work together to make the bike the best option for you. With this bike, riders can ride comfortably, not bothering about bumps on the trails because its suspension and wheels are designed to absorb shocks that come with riding on rough trails.
This bike can boast of its full-carbon frame with internal cable routing, downtube storage, threaded BB, and bottom bracket. The SWAT door (Storage Water Air Tools) downtube storage provides a compartment where riders can store important stuff like a CO2 inflator or a bottle of water. The internal cable routing improves the look of this bike(as no wire are seen winding around the frame), and the threaded BB makes maintenance much easier. To protect the carbon frame from rocky surfaces, there is a rubber bumper under the bottom bracket and around the down tube.
The RockShox Lyrik select fork with charger RC provides a smooth suspension. The fork features 170mm travel, 42mm short offset, and super deluxe+ shock, and these work together to provide a stable and more controlled ride devoid of shocks. The suspension design of this bike makes it possible for you to go faster uphill on any type of terrain without exerting much of energy.
X-fusion Manic dropper Seatpost
The specialized enduro can also boast of using the best dropper post available in the market. The 150mm travel Seatpost can be adjusted to any size, it also has a bottom mount cable routing and a remote lever. The X-fusion does a good job of bettering comfort and stability while perched on the bike pedalling. All these, plus the fact that the dropper Seatpost is really built with material, contribute to making riding comfortable and fun.
