Specialized 22' Enduro Expert

The Enduro Expert has always packed a serious punch and it's never been so true. You get 170-millimetres of the most capable downhill performance that gains elevation with surprising ease. Full FOX suspension, powerful disc brakes, and a robust alloy wheelset round it out.

  • Incredibly capable — If the Enduro looks like its sibling, the Demo, it’s because they share plenty of downhill DNA. A more-rearward axle path reduces wheel hang-up on big impacts. A low- and forward-positioned shock keeps it planted and confident-feeling at high speeds. And balanced chassis stiffness helps the front-end steer precisely and keeps the rear-end tracking like it’s on rails. Add it all up and you have a bike that laughs in the face of the steepest, rockiest trails.

  • Astonishingly fast — Stomp on the pedals and the new Enduro accelerates far quicker than you'd expect possible from a downhill bruiser. To start, we increased anti-squat, so the suspension better-resists pedal bob. Then, to further its efficiency, we re-directed the angle of the chainstay and upper shock linkages for a much more efficient design. The end result? Less bobbing, more speed.

  • Fast starts with fit — Fast and fit aren't mutually exclusive, which is why the progressive geometry of the Enduro has been designed for going up and down. To start, seat tubes and stack heights don’t grow massively between sizes, meaning you can now pick a frame size based on both your height and your riding style. Pair this new sizing style with a slacker head angle, longer reach, and steeper seat tube across the line, and you’re left with a quicker and more capable steed, no matter the size.

Geometry & Sizing:

Please note, the Enduro features a flip-chip in the lower shock that allows you to alter the geometry. High mode slightly steepens the head angle 0.4° and raises the bottom bracket height by 7mm. This adjustability is accounted for and represented in the geometry chart below.

Traditional sizing

Ascend through the sizes and you'll see the seat tubes, head tubes and standover swell considerably. Dropper posts typically couldn't boast longer travel due to the frame restrictions.

Style-specific (S) sizing

Seat tube lengths, standover height and head tube lengths vary less between sizes. Riders can now size up and yet fit a longer dropper post at their will.

Detailed below are the 2022 Enduro Expert's sizes, with their respective rider's height ranges to which they suit.

S2 - 157cm to 173cm (5'2" to 5'8")

S3 - 165cm to 180cm (5'5" to 5'11")

S4 - 173cm to 188cm (5'8" to 6'2")

S5 - 178cm to 193cm (5'10" to 6'4") 

Please note, while you may fit snuggly (according to the size guide) into one particular size, we advise you size DOWN for more manoeuvrability in tight corners or playfulness in flicking the bike in the air. Conversely, size UP for more stability through rough fast rock gardens, aggressive root sections, etc. Our staff will happily engage you in this wider sizing conversation to have you riding the right size bike for your height and riding style.
