Specialized Racing enduro and downhill athletes are racing on Ohlins suspension for the first time in 2017. Moving to new forks and rear shocks means methodical testing must take place for racers to find their baseline settings that will be used throughout the competitive season. Join EWS athlete, Curtis Keene, as he works with Ohlins at a multi-day testing session to get his Enduro 29 bike dialed in.
Curtis generally runs 170mm of travel front and rear. During their tests, the team successfully found baseline settings for Keene's RFX 36 air fork at 170mm and confirmed that a prototype coil spring weight in his RFX 160mm fork is a home run. Curtis will most likely run coil front and rear suspension throughout 2017 on the Enduro World Series with a 170mm-travel Ohlins RFX 36 29 coil fork in the works.
