Specialized have once again transformed the Demo 8 downhill bike. The 2015 model has been completely re-designed and has a fresh new look. Specialized are claiming the new Demo has been designed to be a race winning machine which is lighter, stronger and faster than previous years Demo.
Information on the Demo at the moment is minimal however clearly it is a full carbon asymmetrical frame. All we have is this sweet video of the Specialized World Cup team boys and O.T.P Brand Manager Brad Benedict getting rad and giving the new bike a good thrashing, at what looks like Coast Gravity Park in BC.
The new DH rig should be at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup at Mont-Sainte Anne this weekend. Lets see if Brosnan, Gwin and Ropelato can pilot the new bike to a podium finish.
