Specialized's S-Works Demo is the culmination of years of tuning, tweaking, and downhill racing. Through feedback from World Cup DH winners Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan, the incredibly stiff, responsive FACT 11m carbon frame is built to make sure the timing lights stay green. To lock you in the hot seat, its legendary FSR suspension partners with 650b wheels to smooth every trail, while 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, the Boxxer Team fork and Öhlins rear shock deftly control the biggest, fastest hits. And with the Demo's single sided seat tube, rear shock adjustments, coil swaps, and overhauls are much more simple. For even more control, SRAM's Guide RS DH discs and fat Specialized tires bite hard, while the burly Roval wheels take all the huge compressions and harsh landings that you can dish out. It wouldn't be called S-Works unless it was spec'd with the best. You'll find top-end SRAM X01 7-speed DH-specific gearing, ultra-thin Boomslang pedals, and a Gamut bashguard on board so you can find the top of the podium.

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.
