Tested and proven by Specialized's gravity team on the World Cup downhill circuit and ridden in freeride contests across the globe, Specialized's Demo 8 Frame will help you go faster and bigger than ever before. With super-slack geometry, 200mm of terrain-flattening travel, and a low top tube, the Demo delivers point-and-shoot handling, perfect for stomping big hits and railing the nastiest rock gardens. Controlling the rear end is Öhlin's revolutionary TTX coil-over shock. It boasts adjustable high- and low-speed rebound as well as high- and low-speed compression damping for the ultimate in tunability and ride quality. This burly platform was designed around the 650b wheelsize to maximize speed and control, so build it up with a big-travel fork and fat rubber for a World Cup-level DH rig.
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.
