Ridden by the likes of Troy Brosnan, the Specialized S-Works Demo 8 Disc Downhill Mountain Bike 2017 is the pinnacle of race-winning performance. It’s lightweight, strong and durable thanks to the FACT 11m carbon fibre frame and can take on any rock garden or feature you can imagine with a RockShox BoXXer Team 650b front fork and a Custom Öhlins TTX rear shock.
Specialized S-Works Demo 8 Disc Downhill Mountain Bike 2017
Specialized S-Works Demo 8 Disc Downhill Mountain Bike 2017
Aggressive, relentless and above all - fast. The Specialized S-Works Demo 8 Disc Downhill Mountain Bike 2017 is a World-Cup winning, proven pedigree in the gravity market. Ridden by the likes of Troy Brosnan to multiple downhill victories, everything about the S-Works Demo 8 Disc is designed to make you not just fast, but the fastest.
The frame of the S-Works Demo 8 is constructed from full FACT 11m carbon fibre that produces an incredible ratio of stiffness to weight, allowing you to manoeuvre through rock gardens and hit jumps with greater confidence. S3 geometry also increases this responsiveness and 200mm of travel in the rear ensures if you take a big hit, you’ll continue heading down the hill.
Specialized understand that to ride to your full capability, you need a suspension combination that’ll absorb all the big hits on the track. Luckily, they’ve incorporated the legendary RockShox BoXXer Team 650b fork with 200mm of travel and a Custom Öhlins TTX rear shock. These two work together to take on anything that lays in your path, whether that be a technical rock garden or a huge feature - they’ll keep you riding strong and fast.
Seeking the extensive experience of SRAM within the downhill market, Specialized have used SRAM’s XO1 7-speed rear derailleur for all things gear related. This rear derailleur is incredibly strong, durable and precise for shifting at high speeds. The short cage ensures rock strikes are surpassable and the XO DH shift levers are ergonomically shaped to your fingers for split-second shifting.
Custom SRAM Guide brakes with 200/180mm rotors present great heat modulation throughout your runs, dispersing heat and keeping your braking as performance focused as possible. Whether you’re at the top of the run or at the bottom, this braking system is sure to perform at its optimum level.
A Specialized disc front wheel and Custom DT Swiss rear are ideal for this level of downhill bike, too. When combined, these wheels are supremely strong and durable, whilst the Specialized Butcher and Slaughter tyres with downhill casing enhance grip and puncture protection.
- The frame features a full FACT 11m carbon fibre construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness, which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access. This has also been paired with Specialized’s proven S3 Geometry that increases manoeuvrability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride
- RockShox BoXXer Team 650b fork is nothing short of legendary. With 200mm of travel, a Charger Damper for maximum efficiency, and Power Bulge reinforced lower legs that allow oversized bushings for incredible stiffness, it's easy to see why it's such a fan favourite for gravity fiends
- Custom SRAM Guide RS brakes w/ Code calipers provide powerful, precise, and highly adjustable braking. They are based on a four-piston caliper design that puts out smooth, dependable stopping power, while the Reach Adjust feature allows you to customise the position for easy, one-finger lever pulls. And with SRAM's SwingLink technology, the cam system minimises deadband without sacrificing modulation
