Aaron Gwin took down the first World Cup of 2014 aboard this prototype Specialized Enduro EVO with 650b wheels. Specialized has been pretty quiet about the details of the bike and wouldn't let us get too close, but we know his whip has 180mm of travel out back with a FOX rear coil and we figure the FOX 40 has been modified to match up front with 180mm travel. He ran a Specialized Butcher GRID tire up front with a Slaughter semi-slick out back. A SRAM X01 DH 7-speed drivetrain makes Gwin go while Avid brakes make him stop. Well done, Aaron! We're stoked to see you stomp again.
