Pro Bike Check: Loic Bruni's Specialized Demo

As always, Specialized has showed up in Losinj ready to throw down, with a rad line up of fresh new looks and some brand new parts. Listen in as we caught up with Loic Bruni after track walk for a few words on the off-season, the new bike, and the track here in Losinj.

Loic could not share much info on the new fork, but we can say it now has a bespoke chassis (the predecessor was sort of an off-the-shelf chassis from Suntour), it now has larger stanchions (up to 38mm, from 36 previously), and a new cartridge.

Interestingly, Loic runs 2.3" tires, we'll have to see if he can get away with it here in rocky Losinj.

The team has moved over to Magura brakes for 2018, Loic is stoked on the new anchors, in particular with an eye towards longer, steeper tracks.

To conclude, the bikes are lovingly built and finished off right down to the last details. As pro as it gets!
