GOING FULL ENDURO
Enduro racing has been likened to a big day out on the trails with your mates, only with a ticking clock for company. As the name would suggest, it’s all about endurance with its big mountains, mass starts and mixed terrain making it a discipline which demands balls of steel and endless stamina.
With the Enduro World Series in full swing, the Specialized Racing team are putting in a consistent showing. Last weekend at Round 3 in Madeira, both Jared Graves and Miranda Miller finished in the top 5 in a hugely competitive field, both making improvements on previous events. The next stop is County Wicklow in Ireland on Sunday 28 May.
Enduro is a discipline which is touted to be the next big thing in mountain biking. To get the most out of it, you need an all-mountain trail bike that is responsive when you’re plummeting down inclines and nippy when the trail tilts skyward. The Specialized factory team ride the aptly-named Enduro frame, a capable and efficient “King of the Mountain”. They also enjoy the best precision MTB equipment on offer in the Specialized range.
Enduro Elite Carbon 29/6Fattie
The legendary X-Wing layout frame, with its Fact 9m carbon fibre chassis paired with M5 alloy rear, is equipped with SRAM one-by 11-speed shifting, RockShox Lyrik RC fork and Rockshox Monarch Plus rear suspension with our Rx Trail Tune. Crazy-fast Roval Traverse wheels and integrated SWAT door in the downtube complete the all-round awesome package.
Enduro Comp 29/6Fattie
Benefiting from the same X-Wing frame construction as its carbon counterparts, the M5 alloy frame is wrapped in SRAM’s 11-speed GX gearing and suspension is provided by a RockShox Yari RC fork up front and RockShox Monarch Plus at the rear, also with our Rx Trail Tuning. Powerful SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes and Roval Traverse rims make the Enduro Comp a perfect companion for trail riding adventures – on a more accessible budget than its carbon stablemate.
2FO Cliplite Mountain Bike Shoes
The 2FO Cliplite shoes are the footwear of choice for our elite athletes, thanks to their light weight, brillian comfort and super-tough protection. These shoes feature an ultra-light version of the 2FO clip, engineered for smooth pedal entry and exit with the Landing Strip cleat pocket. With these shoes, you can focus on going flat out on the descent, without the weight penalty for when you climb back up to the top. Finally, the Boa dial system makes the fit comfortable and simple, with easy adjustment on the fly.
Ambush Comp MTB Helmet

Its Composite Matrix internal reinforcement allows large vents for great cooling and the in-moulded shell improves strength and reduces weight while the Mindset 360 fitting system provides a secure and comfortable fit with integrated dial for easy adjustments on the go. Whatever the weather, the Ambush is a breathable and comfortable protection solution, and it looks great too.
