Let's not kid ourselves—downhill is all about speed. And when it comes to squeezing every last ounce of fast out of a track, your machine needs to be just as fine-tuned as your skills. That's why Specialized offers their legendary, World-Cup-proven S-Works Demo 8 as a frameset. The incredibly stiff, responsive FACT 11m carbon frame is built to lock you in the hot seat. Its legendary FSR suspension partners with 650b wheels and Specialized's dialed S3 geometry to smooth every trail, delivering a low-center of gravity that's confident soaring through the air and skimming across techy tracks. A custom Öhlins rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high/low speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It's 200mm of coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find anywhere else.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration.
