- Anyone tried the new 2013 Enduro S Works?
I’ve not ridden a 2013 bike but I have a 2011 XL Spec Enduro as my only MTB, and I think it is excellent. If the new one if as good or better then it should be fine. I love the short back end and long front end geometry, mine is a big bike but still feels really lively and manouverable, and it climbs very well despite 1 x 10 gearing and the travel, I have 170mm forks on the front. Not sure if I’d go a size smaller if I was still in the UK, probably not. If they made a 2013 carbon frame in XL I’d be seriously considering upgrading to get a lighter version. The only thing I dislike is the fact that the shock has to be custom for the frame which means its hard to try different shocks but the standard shocks are good. I doubt you would be dissapointed if you got one, I can really recommend getting a size bigger than you think you need and running a really short stem, makes for an really confidence inspiring bike.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks ddmonkey, thats good feedback. Funny you say about the size, I sat on a new 2013 comp, in medium and it did feel quite short (espeically compared to a yeti medium).
The s works comes with a ccdb air which ideally should be best of both worlds in wieght vs performance.
Anyone else got any feedback?Posted 4 years ago
I’m considering a new frame only purchase as can’t find a used medium anywhere and my LBS can do a tempting deal.
They have had some amazing reviews (as they should at that price)stating the 2013 model climbs better and descends just as well, but looking for anyone with first hand experience…
Is it a good one bike solution? Is it really worth the money?Posted 4 years ago
I must say I feel super excited… I’d pondered for months over what to get trying different 650b 29er and 26er bikes.
In the end the hassle of new wheels, forks, tyres was too
much outlay on top of a frame.
Anyone interested in a mint condition orange alpine 160 2012 with ccdb coil in plasma blue let me know… I’ll be listing in the coming days with photos..Posted 4 years agoracefaceec90Member
i have no personal experience with enduro’s,but one of the guys from the bike shop i go to has just bought himself a 13 s works enduro.it looks lovely (he also has a titanium orange ht,merlin tit road bike e.t.c so he is a lucky sod). am not jealous in the slightest 🙂Posted 4 years ago
It’s from don skene cycles in cardiff, I buy all my bikes from there and they had one left of 3. I thought these had all gone last month….
I went in after asking about a Bronson c orignally but the cost and faffing around with new forks and wheels made the price scary.
Then they offered me a good deal on the sworks, I’d always wanted one and the price was right 🙂Posted 4 years ago
ddmonkey – It’s a medium size, I’m 5’8″. I would say it comes up small for a medium, especially compared to my yeti.
Used the sworks at eastridge enduro today (excellent day) and it was faultless, descends just as we’ll as my orange alpine, but climbs like a mountain gloat, especially good on technical climbs, hooking up on roots and rocks well.Posted 4 years ago
