Who says that carbon should have all the fun? Not us. The Enduro Comp 29 flies in the face of carbon superiority with an alloy frame that makes you wonder why you wanted carbon in the first place? It has the same legendary X-Wing layout that makes its ride plenty stiff super snappy and more fun than the feds probably want you to have. Tell the trail to give this Enduro its worst - it'll be just fine.
Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically we modernized it - slacking out the front end lengthening the top tube shortening the chainstays and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever.
And to keep the weight down the frame is constructed with our legendary tough-as-nails X-Wing layout with a M5 alloy chassis and rear-end. To guarantee high degrees of "shredability" this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush front and rear travel plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting.
For the build this Enduro is packed with send-it-ready gear like SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed shifting powerful Guide RE brakes crazy-strong wheels and a RockShox Yari fork up front.
