If you think that an enduro bike (any not Spé Enduro) goes down as well as a DH bike, either you never set a foot on a DH bike, or it was years ago.

Love my 2018 Alloy Enduro 650. When set up right it does climb well and descends like a magic carpet. Most people upgrade various components and the Comp model I have is no exception. The 125mm dropper is too short, the bars are too low and the wheels are weak and flexy and very heavy.

Once you start getting super slack a whole lot of factors become even more important. Even the wrong front tyre can change the riders perception of what works and what doesn't. I've just steepened my Enduro and reduced the sag to try and get front end ... more »

Ain't no shop bros - it's my personal build, and I've been abusing it for a year now - the bike deserves the show-off because it's so damn good to ride, that's all. Parts weren't showing earlier but hopefully they are now. @loganskis if you're interested in off the radar stuff then what's being developed here...more

I have an a2 and I won a fly from you guys(thanks). The fly was nice but the dial adjustment does slip if you try and tighten it. I liked the fit but the pads were too thin. I ended up keeping my tld a2. Sweat does drop in your eyes and it is hotter but it’s so damn...more

Hi! You read the wrong article, the layout can be a bit confusing I agree. There are in fact two articles linked under the same entry in our product guide. If you scroll back up, you'll find the actual review above the article you just commented on - then look for the "Read More" button...more

Not to mention Joe Nation from NZL who was riding a Spesh Enduro and came 18th. I know its not all about the bike by any stretch, but I cant fathom why Keene and Graves insist on riding the Stumpy instead. They even did it before the latest more capable version appeared. Graves claims its about size and suspension feel but I bet they could tweak an Enduro to his liking...

"Chris Ball and his team" are not just one man... no mistaken assumption on my part.
This one man and 'his' team have far more experience than you give them credit. And you can have no doubt that when they need to they are able to seek advice from some equally...more

Added a comment about product review The Greatest Hope for Gearboxes - Zerode Taniwha Reviewed 5/22/2018 4:51 AM

It only weighs as much as my XL all ali Enduro...Seems to me the bike is held back a bit by the very thing that makes it unique - the draggy, heavy gear box. I bet if the box was developed more some of the issues could be resolved.

Assuming you'd use this up front, with a faster rolling tyre on the rear..Would't use the Assegai as a rear tyre.

I am open to liking this track and I do like the look of bits of it, but it's too short IMO.
