The same chassis piloted to riotous success in its very first season on the World Cup circuit, the Demo Race frameset brings 27.5/29-inch rear wheel compatibility to the fore in the search for the optimal balance of speed, traction, and maneuverability while allowing for unmatched versatility. RockShox's proven Super Deluxe DH Coil gives you a head start on suspension perfection, just hang your time-tested race kit before you pick up the search where we left off, and there's a good chance you'll find a few podiums along the way. - The Demo Race M5 alloy frame is fully optimized to take advantage of the traction benefits of a 29-inch front wheel and the increased maneuverability of a 27.5-inch rear wheel. And, it retains the ability to change your rear wheel size to suit different terrain and riding styles—the adjustable rear end ensures chainstay length and bottom bracket height stay dialed no matter the hoop size. - The Rockshox Super Deluxe Ultimate DH coil shock may be heavy on adjectives, but it's even heavier on performance, offering external low-speed compression and rebound adjustment while the Trunnion mount offers extra bushing overlap for increased durability.
Carbon isn't the only material that gets to have all the fun—the alloy Specialized Chisel frameset is the perfect combination of light overall weight, stiffness, durability, and alloy. Consider it the perfect start to your XC build. D'Aluisio aluminum allows Specialized to make a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics for a hardtail XC rig. You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you question why alloy as gotten such a bad rap. To further improve this feel, the Chisel features XC 29 geometry which took their previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened the head tube, and a slacked out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider fit range. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. - Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with speed-focused XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance.
