Take on bigger lines, higher speeds, and better times with Specialized's Demo 8 I Carbon. Paired with 650b wheels, its responsive FACT Carbon frame boasts Specialized's legendary FSR suspension that smooths all trails, while its low center of gravity and low stand-over help you slash corners and rail rowdy sections. Keeping your run pinned are 200mm of travel courtesy of RockShox's Boxxer RC fork and a custom Öhlins TTX shock that offer perfectly tunable travel to control even the biggest, fastest hits. Add in SRAM's DH-specific 7-speed drivetrain, Guide R discs, and burly Roval wheels wrapped in fat Specialized tires for max grip and unheard of speeds on every course. Plus, this downhill monster boasts a direct mount stem and thin Specialized flat pedals so you'll always have what you need to go bigger, higher, and faster.
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.
