Product Details

2017 Specialized Demo 8 II

Specialized's Demo 8 II is built to dismantle the world's toughest, gnarliest downhill courses. Its revolutionary M5 asymmetric aluminum frame is paired with a legendary FSR suspension and 650b wheels, delivering a low-center of gravity that's confident soaring through the air and skimming across techy tracks. No matter how gnar-filled the trail is, the RockShox Boxxer Team fork and Öhlins rear shock deftly control the biggest, fastest hits, and they boast the adjustments you need to perfectly tune the suspension for each course. For even more control, SRAM's Guide RS DH discs and fat Specialized tires bite hard and stop quick, while the burly Roval wheels take all the huge air and harsh landings that you can dish out. Plus, this monster is spec'd with quick-shifting SRAM X0 gearing and a Gamut bashguard.

      Comments:

      Just got this bike and raced it at Snowmass.It handles and rides so smooth, I was still getting used to the feel a new bike and it completely handled everything from drops to jumps and really steap off-camber sections. This bike is a wild animal that wants to be set free so just hang on and don't brake.

      The handlebars snaped first try off of a 6 foot drop. The rim folded of a small jump. Everything on this bike is bad and nobody should buy it ever.
