Kevin’s Intense Carbine

The Build

Kevin was coming off of the 2017 Specialized Enduro and was looking for a bike that would give him the same riding style of the long travel 29er, but with a JS tuned suspension system. The build was designed to be lighter weight but still just as capable. With the help of a great carbon frame and an ENVE wheelset we were able to accomplish that. Thank you for your support Kevin and we hope you enjoy the new ride!
