At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Enduro Elite 29 is an Enduro mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels, has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Enduro range of mountain bikes.

All mountain riding splits it’s time between climbing and descending, so a true all mountain bike needs to be able to do it all. And when it comes to fast, evenhanded performance, it’s difficult to beat our Enduro FSR Elite 29. Its frame features a M5 aluminium construction that’s built off our 29 Geometry. Along these lines, the frame gets a roomy top tube, the shortest possible chainstays, a low bottom bracket, and a slack head tube—all to perfectly blend climbing and descending characteristics together. This Enduro also includes plenty of travel, 155mm at the front and 160mm at the rear, in order to increase control over small bumps and big hits alike.

At the build kit, we spec’d for reliable performance, including a RockShox Pike RC 29 fork and a custom Monarch Plus for a supremely plush suspension setup, a one-by SRAM X1 drivetrain with a wide range of gears, and a Command Post IRcc dropper with up to 10 middle positions. Altogether, this Enduro is everything you need to tackle the entire mountain—fast.
