The 2016 Specialized Enduro Expert Carbon 29 is an Enduro Carbon 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.

Whether you’re racing enduro or riding all mountain, your bike needs to combine the trail manners of a DH bike with the climbing efficiency of a trail bike. Needless to say, getting this in one long-travel trail bike is easier said then done. That is, until the Enduro FSR Expert Carbon 29. To keep the weight down for both climbing and handling, the frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fibre. This material comes with the added benefit of being incredibly stiff, which is balanced out by our 29 Geometry’s roomy top tube, short chainstays, slack head tube, and longer wheelbase.

Add it all up, and you get a lively ride that’s incredibly responsive on both climbs and descents. And to further ensure top-level performance on the way down, this geo is mated with 160mm of plush travel up front and 155mm at rear. Handling suspension duties out back is the revolutionary, air-sprung Öhlins single tube rear shock. And for the build, the Enduro spares no expense at hitting the pinnacle of performance, with a mix of SRAM X1 and X01 for shift and drivetrain duties, powerful Guide RS brakes, hand-built Roval wheels, and the venerable RockShox Pike RC 29 fork.
