Whilst looking for the toilets at the newly relocated Interbike trade show, we came across Scurra’s unique take on the Enduro bike. Unmissable in teal-and-peak, this Austrian Enduro bike starts with a fairly standard 7in four-bar linkage and 27.5in wheel at the rear. At the front end, however, things get a bit more interesting.
The frame-mounted DT Swiss front shock is driven via linkage by Scurra’s 7in travel Trelever parallelogram fork. The design is said to provide improved tracking over telescoping forks, excellent small-bump action, and increasing trail for improved in-travel stability. There’s a certain reminder of the Whyte Preston in there somewhere…
The design is patented in the US, Japan, China and Europe and the frame itself is made in Austria. The Hard Enduro’s complete 33lb/14Kg bike weight (with XX1/Syntace build) is impressive given the bike’s travel. Scurra is currently seeking North American distribution.
