With the all-new Enduro Elite 29/6Fattie, we're still scratching our heads—is it faster on the way up or the way down? But at this point, we're kind of like, "Who cares? This thing is fun as hell."
We gave it a geometry features a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever.
We even added some cool bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, and made "old" new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed with our legendary X-Wing layout with a FACT 9m carbon fiber chassis and M5 alloy rear end. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush rear and 160mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting.
Handling suspension duties out back, meanwhile, is the talk of the town rear shock, the RockShox Monarch Plus with our Rx All Mountain Tune. And for the icing on the cake, we even made this Enduro to be compatible with our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire system (wheels and tires not included), so you'll always be ready for the trail ahead.
For the build, this Enduro is packed with drool-worthy gear, like SRAM one-by 11-speed shifting, powerful Code R brakes, hand-built Roval wheels, and a Ohlins RXF 36 fork up front.
- The frame has an X-Wing layout with a FACT 9m carbon chassis and an M5 alloy rear end. Together, these elements combine to form the perfect balance of low weight, responsive handling, and unparalleled strength. It's also been built off our 29 Geometry, which lends itself to running 6Fattie wheels and tires (only a 7mm BB drop), in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT Door at the down tube, you get a bike that's clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer.
- Featuring a three-chamber air spring, the Ohlins RXF 36 fork stays smooth and high in the travel without compromising bump absorption, traction, or stability. It also features low-speed and rebound adjustments, and sports 160mm of plush travel.
- SRAM's 11-speed GX serves up powerful and precise one-by shifting, so you can say goodbye to dropped chains and unnecessary grams.
