Every big hit just sends the front wheel into the air. It only keeps the front tire planted on small bumps. I’ll pass on this one.

I hope the lifetime warranty means Yeti has finally addressed all the cracks and fails for their previous frames. Because the price were premium but the build quality wasn't . The bike looks dope though!

It finally didn't work so good for me with the coil: I couldn't get acceptable early stroke suppleness combined with enough bottom out resistance. Low leverage and short shock stroke are the (now) obvious culprits

I had a 2017 Enduro Pro with the STX 22 and the high speed compression was wack, tried different spring rates, never could get it dialed. Kinda off disappointed with Ohlins

I would say that a bike with a rather linear leverage ratio curve would be difficult to set up with any coil shock without bottom out control... unless harsh bottom outs every now and them are just accepted..

You are right even if I found it in the download section of the enduro coil 29...

It looks indeed like a 434 lb/in spring which is for a 150 lbs rider according to a PDF that can be downloaded from Specialized web page...
Quite impressive that you ended up with the compressions fully open with a lower spring rate than recommended and still found the ride to be on the harsh side!

Our test bike shipped with this spring, which we assumed to be a 434 lb/in given the markings:



We've asked for Specialized's spring chart to clarify.

Is the 434 spring weight recommendation a typo? Specialized "ball park" recommendation is 480 for a 174lbs rider... or does the "very firm stock rear suspension" refer to the 480 spring weight?
