At a glance

The 2016 Specialized ENDURO ELITE 650B is an Enduro mountain bike. It has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Enduro range of mountain bikes.

If you’re looking for a bike that’s agile on big, nasty descents and holds its own on long, arduous climbs, look no further than the Enduro FSR Elite 650b. Its frame features a M5 aluminium construction that’s built off our 650b Geometry. Along these lines, the frame gets a roomy top tube, the shortest possible chainstays, a low bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube than what’s found on the 29—all to perfectly blend climbing and descending characteristics together. This Enduro also includes plenty of travel, 160mm at the front and 165mm 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 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 agile, eager, and ready to dominate the entire mountain.
