At a glance

The 2018 Specialized S-Works Enduro 650b is a Enduro and Trail Carbon mountain bike. It sports 27.5" wheels, is priced at $11,000 AUD and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Enduro range of mountain bikes.

If you love sending it down the trail, smashing through rock gardens, launching off drops and jumps, and carving through singletrack at ungodly speeds, you’ll feel right at home aboard the S-Works Enduro 650b. We gave it a geometry that features a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever. We even added some bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT™ Door at the down tube, and made old new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fibre.

And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 170mm of plush rear and 170mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be adjusted via a shock extension with a low/high setting. For the build, this Enduro spares no expense at hitting the pinnacle of performance, with a full SRAM XX1 Eagle 12-speed groupset, powerful Guide RSC Carbon brakes, hand-built carbon Roval wheels, our Command Post IRcc Wu dropper post, and the revolutionary Öhlins single-tube rear shock handling suspension duties out back. Make the mountain bend to you.
