A ground-up reinvention of the bike that created the genre, this Enduro was designed to go as fast as possible.

The Enduro Expert has always packed a serious punch and it’s never been so true. You get 170 millimeters of the most capable downhill performance that gains elevation with surprising ease. Full FOX suspension, powerful disc brakes and a stellar carbon wheelset round it out.

If the Enduro looks like its sibling, the Demo, it’s because they share plenty of downhill DNA. The Enduro rolls fast on 29er hoops and boasts 170 millimeters of front and rear suspension courtesy of an all new-design that obliterates the biggest hits with ease.

Stomp on the pedals and the new Enduro accelerates far quicker than you’re expect possible from a downhill bruiser. We pulled out all the engineering stops and made the Enduro an incredibly efficient pedaling machine. The end result? Less bobbing. More speed. 

  • All-new design boasts 170 millimeters of gnar-devouring suspension. The full-carbon frame also features our ingenious SWAT™ Door downtube storage, a reliable, threaded bottom bracket, and internal cable routing.
  • FOX FLOAT Performance 36 fork offers stellar control over the roughest terrain thanks to its very stout 36-millimeter stanchions and simple, yet reliable GRIP damper.
  • SRAM CODE RSC discs aren’t just powerful—they also offer outstanding adjustments and modulation.
  • SRAM XO1 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain gives you single-ring simplicity, and outstanding drivetrain precision and durability.
  • X-Fusion Manic dropper post increases your maneuverability and control on steep descents. Bonus points—our S4 and S5 frames feature 170mm-travel versions of the Manic post.

Style-Specific Sizing

The Enduro's sizing is different than the standard S/M/L/XL sizing. It's style-specific similar to the Demo and Stumpjumper Evo. Style-specific geometry has short seat tubes, low standover and short head tubes across all sizes, giving riders the ability to choose a size based on reach and wheelbase, rather than inseam length or height. Riders who prefer the more nimble handling of a short wheelbase can size down whereas riders who prefer the stability of a longer wheelbase can size up. Style-specific geo gives riders more options.


Style-specific sizing

Seat tube lengths, standover height and head tube lengths vary less between sizes. Riders can now easily size up and still fit a longer dropper post. Sizes available are S2, S3, S4 and S5. We can help you if you're unsure of size.

Traditional sizing

Seat tubes, standover and head tubes vary more between Small to XL sizes. Riders who previously wanted to go with bigger sizes had to run shorter droppers or just couldn't stand over them at all.

Geometry

Note that the Enduro features a flip-chip in the lower shock that allows you to alter the geometry. High mode slightly steepens the head angle 0.4° and raises the BB height by 7mm.
