Specialized Enduro Pro 29 Women’s Bike Review

Specialized Enduro Pro 29

The Specialized Enduro Pro is a sought after enduro bike. Specialized does not make a women’s specific 29er, nor does it make a women’s version of the Enduro.  Tester, Andi Zolton was able to climb aboard a size small for her short test. The small 29er bike was a bit big for Andi’s 5’3″ frame.  She made the most of her time on the long-legged Enduro and was pleasantly surprised by the big wheels.

Built out with Ohlins suspension, she found it to be “smooth like butta” on the descents.  With the 29″ wheels, Andi found she could roll over just about everything that the Sedona desert could lay down for her.  With build and frames to fit every budget ($2800-8200), Specialized offers many options for a wide range of budgets.

Specialized Enduro Pro 29 has 160 mm of front and rear suspension that rolls over everything with the larger wheels.

Ohlins suspension with auto sag feature takes some of the guesswork out of suspension setup.

Do these wheels make my Eagle look small? 

This bike is built for an enduro racer, those who like to go fast as well as still make the time cut-offs for transfer stages.   The 29″ wheels offer rollover advantage on chunky terrain and just want to keep chomping over everything.  You also have the ability to ride the bike with 27.5 plus tires on this bike.

If you want to learn more about larger 2.8″ and  2.6″ tires go here – 2018 Perspective Shift: 2.6″and 2.8″ Tire Opinion .  The larger rubber options available with 27.5″ wheels might be the ticket where additional traction, as well as confidence, is needed.

If riding downhill as fast as you can is your thing, this machine was built for you.  Go get this bike![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
