this site lists it at 170mm. Seems a bit high.

I was hoping for a more radical update.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Me too. Looks like they just made it longer, and added some carbon stays, added the hatch.

A little disappointing after seeing this concept based off a specialized patent.

Meh. I knew they were all speculation and photoshop, but I really was hoping for something dramatic like the asymmetrical demo-esque images floating around.

Oh well, I don't really care for Specialized all that much anyway, but it's always interesting to see what they put out.

Ride, don't slide.

Yep a small iteration in the development, not a step change. However the rear stays and the clevis-style pivots will stiffen the rear end of that frame up a lot. The Stumpjumper was a revelation in that respect from the current Enduro.

Jon-boy.

tho apart from aesthetics, i don't see the benefit of producing something like a mini demo. the enduro, as boring as it is, seems like a pretty dialed configuration. low mounted bottle mount and junk in the trunk compartment? much more practical layout for the intended use.

The Big S entourage is here. I guess expect a media release soon. 2017 site appears to be up in Canada with no Enduro showing. US site still shows the 2016 Enduro

One would think they want to have their top pro's racing this thing at Whistler EWS that they are a major sponsor of and you have a strong chance of winning…

I bet embargo ends tonight at midnight and you wake up to every website flaunting the new rig tomorrow.

Likely the case. Figure they have an edit drop and press release ready to go.
Can't see them having Graves and Keene on the old Enduro or Stumpy with how last years CW Enduro had guys running 170mm Lyriks and the like.

I'm pretty sure I saw buddy bunny hopping that bike around English Bay last night. What other Spec's have that one sided seat tube?
