Vital RAW - Specialized Enduro Shredding with Mitch Ropelato and Curtis Robinson 19

We're not sure if we feel more sorry for the rocks or the bikes in this video. South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona, was the perfect, boulder-filled setting for Mitch Ropelato and Curtis Robinson to abuse their Specialized Enduros for this Vital RAW.

Curtis chose the Enduro 650b with 65.5-degree head angle, 352mm BB height and 422mm chainstay length.



Mitch rode the Enduro 29 that features 67.5-degree head angle, 351mm BB height and 430mm chainstay length.


Stay tuned for a complete Pro Bike Check on Mitch's custom Enduro 29 and visit www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/mountain/enduro for more information on the bikes ridden in this video.

    Gotta luv the RAW series

    How much tire psi do you think they are running? I didn't hear much rim smacking for the speed & terrain.

    Great video - I don't get to see to many of these kind of productions done on these kind of trails. It was fun to watch and easy to relate to.

    They are both Spec sponsored athletes. Even if it is, I don't care. Companies can inject as many products as they like into videos as long as they are executed like this.
