Enduro S-works weight
I’m not moaning, I do love it, it rides better than any bike I’ve had.. Just surprised at the weight as I’ve spent a wedge already. And lots of talk online of these bikes weighing 27lbs, suppose it shows you have to spec high end for every parts to achieve that.
Realistically will look at the cranks next, but will have to wait a bit for funds..Posted 4 years ago
As above, plus….
29lb isn’t heavy for a 6″ AM bike.
Nice looking bit of kit though pal
My 2004 (non-S-Works). Great D/H, but a bit of a pig uphill
My 2008 S-Works. Great allrounder, but not quite as surefooted D/H – climbs great though!
Something different next time thoughPosted 4 years agoorangeboyMember
Sub 28 for mine but
Stans arch rims revs stans hubs
Easton havon carbon bars
SRAM carbon cranks with bling ring hope bb
Sworks captain tyres
Xtr 10 speed
Tundra saddle with ti rails
It’s stunning and made me think it might be time to sell several of the other bikes
Is that green one above not 2005-2005 ?Posted 4 years ago
Just weighed my enduro s works with my newly acquired digital scales and it reads 29.08lbs.
I’m a little disappointed as was hoping it would be closer 28lb.
Fox 36 rc2 float
Mavic crossmax st
Avid xo brakes
1 x 10 xt mech/slx crank
E thirteen xcx device
Renthal fatbar lite
It rides light so am very happy with it but just surprised at the figure.
Any suggestions on how to get it lighter without spending too much more bloody money would be helpful.Posted 4 years agosherryMember
M5 enduro pro 2011 33.3lb XL frame.
I’m happy with build as I went for affordable robust parts.
Fork: Rock Shox 2013 Lyric dual position
Wheels: Hope pro 2 on EN521 tubeless Hans Damp
SLX cranks/ front mech
Formula RX brakes
SRAM X9 shifters/ rear mech
Kore Torrsion bar
Truvative stem and saddle
Sram pg980 cassette
X9 SL light chain
Time X control pedals
I weigh over 100kg in riding gear so no carbon for me. I’m very happy with it and I’m in no hurry to upgrade anything. Everything works and works very well.
Don’t go silly with the weight its great as it is, just enjoy riding it. Lose a few lbs from yourself by riding more, a sure way to go faster!Posted 4 years agowaldo1Member
I Wouldn’t try to make it much Lighter. Seems just right to me. Too light and I find I lose stability at high speed and hitting jumps I.e cwmcarn hip jump, a light bike and a bit of wind and I get blown well of track.Posted 4 years ago
Try some tyres circa 750gs. Could drop almost a pound there. It will climb better too.mikewsmithSubscriber
36’s to 34’s
XX1 or XX single ring
Get shot of the minion
Carbon the hell out of the rest
Keep the mud off it
Buy an XC bike?
Just try riding it?
Mind you I’m planning to get a Blur LT to that weight (ali one) but with some nice SRAM drivetrain (X9/X0) bits and less tyres but 160mm up front.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the comments, all appreciated…
for some background – I’ve gone from a carbon xc/trail bike and a heavy AM/mini dh bike down to the this enduro for a 1 bike solution. I know there is always a compromise, but thats why im looking to cover all bases…
I like to enter XC marathons as well as gravity enduros so that’s why i’m looking to get the best balance.
Interestingly my strava time of a full loop of cwmcarn xc on the enduro (then fitted with heavier flow/pro2 hoops) is just over a minute longer than it was on my 26lb yeti asr5c. Not lots of difference, so was pretty chuffed how quickly the enduro rides. Perhaps that is why I was expecting the weight figure to be lower.
just looking at the sram xx1 crankset, seems very good value (under £200) compared to XTR…. anyone tried xx1 cranks?Posted 4 years agoHob NobMember
I think you might need to run the XX1 back end to go with it
No you don’t.
That said, they wouldn’t even be on my radar, even if I wanted XX1, i’d still run Shimano cranks. GXP is rubbish & if all the carbon cranksets I see out there, I see way too many broken SRAM ones.
There are better places to save weight that the crankset initially, even if they do scream ‘budget’ on something carbon 😉Posted 4 years agoddmonkeySubscriber
Mine is an Alu XL with Marzocchi 55Ti’s, hope hoops with Flow rims, tubes, Renthal DH bars and a Reverb dropper, and it comes in at 32lbs. I’d be thrilled with 29lbs I don’t think its worth compromising the way it rides to get it lighter thank that. Anything under 30lb is wonderful – I don’t think I’ve ever acheived it. It takes a lot of money to get under 30lbs I think.
That said I think I know how I could do it, Crossmax ST’s would save a lot of weight but I would want wider rims of the SLX which would reduce any possible saving, going tubeless would help too, as would replacing the SLX cranks with XTR’s and putting some lighter wide bars on, that would probably get me close. Not sure its worth it thought 🙂Posted 4 years ago

Hans Dampf tyres tubeless would save you some weight. 34s might save weight too, but they’r just not 36s, are they?
Normal Renthals are heavy things, dunno how much lighter yours are. Cassette might save a chunk too.
TBH thogh, tyres aside, you’re into the space where shaving weight means either big bucks, or using bits that don’t really suit a 160mm bike.Posted 4 years agomr plowMember
Seems a pound out from bike rumour, usually the pedals that are missed:Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
Swap the 36’s for something lighter, maybe 150mm Magura’s/Revs?
Please don’t take this advice.
Your bike is a great weight for what it is. CCDB and Reverb are not light.
It’s never going to be an XC marathon bike, why do you only want one bike? Space limited?
Maybe get a s/h Anthem or similar for your XC racing?Posted 4 years ago
