All-out speed has always been the Demo’s target, and with the Demo Race, it’s no different. Introducing a new flexible wheel-size frame design that allows riders to take advantage of a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear wheel, it’s a special blend that’s long been tested by World Champ Loïc Bruni looking for the perfect balance of traction and maneuverability, but only just green-lighted by the UCI this past year. Not that it stopped the Demo Race from racking up both the Downhill World Championship and overall World Cup titles in its very first season... Now; we’re offering that same winning combination straight out of the box, while an adjustable rear end that still allows you to change between 27.5 and 29-inch wheel sizes based on terrain and riding style while also adjusting for proper chainstay length and bottom bracket height. Blazing fast on tough tracks, the Demo Race suspension design has been developed around a more rearward axle path that reduces rear-wheel hang-up, increasing speed instead. Top-shelf suspension from Öhlins takes advantage of the most proven suspension kinematics on the World Cup circuit, and SRAM’s DH-specific X01 drivetrain has you covered from the start gate to finish line.

  • The Demo Race M5 alloy frame is fully optimized to take advantage of the traction benefits of a 29-inch front wheel and the increased manueverability of a 27.5-inch rear wheel while maintaiining the ability to change your rear wheel size to suit different terrain and riding styles with an adjustable rear end that ensures chainstay length and bottom-bracket height stay dialed no matter the hoop size.
  • The Öhlins TTX22M.2 coil shock is designed to handle the most challenging World Cup Downhill tracks, offering external low speed compression and rebound adjustment while the Trunnion mount offers extra bushing overlap for increased durability.
  • With superb small bump tracking and the ability to soak up landings from even the heftiest drop-off, the Öhlins DH38 m.1 fork’s 200-millimeters of travel will give you smoother, faster, and more confident feeling runs than anything you’ve ridden before.

Hi Jason, 

Thank you for your email, 

It is a possibility that a new demo could come out next year. 
We cannot confirm that there is a new Demo coming out, but is likely.
We are completely sold out in the S4 Demo as that is the most common size for the bike. 

Sorry about the uncertain answer, 

Thanks, 

Specialized.

Cycle to Work Scheme: Affordable Riding for UK Employees

Unlock a cost-effective way to own the bike of your dreams through the Cycle to Work Scheme. This initiative, available to employees in the UK, lets you enjoy the benefits of cycling while saving on your bike purchase.

With the Cycle to Work Scheme, you can use your pre-tax salary to acquire a brand-new bicycle and essential cycling accessories. This means significant savings for you, as your salary sacrifice reduces both your income tax and National Insurance contributions.

Once the salary sacrifice period ends, you have the option to own the bike outright for a nominal fee, ensuring you get to keep and enjoy your trusted two-wheeled companion for years to come.
