2015 Specialized S-Works Demo - Mont Sainte Anne World Cup

Aug 1, 2014
by Mike Kazimer  
When the first images of Specialized's new S-Works Demo downhill bike were released earlier this week, it caught many by surprise. Sure, a 27.5" wheeled offering was almost a given, but the frame's futuristic, one sided design was radically different than what many riders had been expecting from the big S. Aluminum prototypes had been spotted last summer underneath Specialized test pilot Brad Benedict, but the general consensus seemed to be that the bike would be more of a park / mini DH bike rather than the full blown race machine that it has transformed into.

By all appearances the S-Works Demo will be situated at the very top tier of Specialized's gravity line, and will certainly require deep pockets to come by. Yes, it's true that you could buy a (insert name of an object that costs at least $10,000 here) for what this bike will retail for, but that's the norm when it comes to a newly released, carbon fiber machine designed to be raced at the uppermost level of the sport. Fans of the previous frame configuration needn't despair, as it looks like an aluminum 27.5” version that still uses the distinctive dual seat stay layout will be in the lineup for 2015. Although Specialized still hasn't officially released any concrete details about the bike, the new Demo supposedly has 200mm of travel and a slightly longer reach and chainstays than previous versions, which would make sense given the current bike geometry trends, and the fact that it has 27.5" wheels. We were able to snap a few photos of Troy Brosnan and Aaron Gwin's bikes as they prepared for the fifth round of the DH World Cup at Mont Sainte Anne - take a look at what they'll be rolling up to the starting line on when it's time for their race runs.




Troy Brosnan's Demo

2015 Specialized Demo
With a win at Fort William and a 3rd place finish at Leogang, there's no doubt Troy Brosnan's eager to keep stepping onto the podium for the remainder of the season. A new bike will put the young Aussie under additional pressure to deliver a top result, but his performance in Scotland showed he can still keep his cool when the heat is on.


2015 Specialized Demo
The new Demo's one sided frame design should make shock adjustments and spring swaps easier than ever, a welcome sight for any mechanic who has ever struggled to reach adjustment knobs hidden behind a linkage or heard the disheartening sound of spacers hitting the ground when removing a shock to install a different spring.


2015 Specialized Demo
The bike is a full carbon affair, using a Horst link along with a concentric pivot that rotates around the bottom bracket. It appears that the derailleur hanger also serves to hold the rear wheel in place, and Specialized's derailleur guard has managed to find its way onto the new bike as well.


2015 Specialized Demo
Rather than using two thinner carbon sections on each side of the shock, Specialized decided to do away with the left side altogether and create one extra wide carbon strut that joins the top tube to the bottom bracket area.



Aaron Gwin's Demo

2015 Specialized Demo
After putting in one of the most amazing downhill runs ever on a flat tire, Aaron Gwin is hoping to cross the finish line this weekend with both tires fully inflated. He's still running FOX's RAD coil sprung rear shock, which offers independently adjustable low speed and high speed compression and rebound adjustments. It seems likely that the shock must be getting relatively close to being ready for production, considering that we first spotted it at the 2013 World Championships. The bike has internal cable routing, but the two empty holes on the down tube seem like they could be used to install a cable guide to run the housing externally, which would facilitate quick race day brake swaps.


2015 Specialized Demo
The Demo's frame design should keep its center of gravity low, which will be helpful for the high speed cornering encountered on a World Cup race course. The frame weight has likely dropped from the previous version as well, especially without the secondary linkage.


2015 Specialized Demo
The rear end of the bike uses 12 x 135mm spacing instead of the more common 12 x 150, a design feature that helps tuck the rear derailleur farther in and out of reach of the sharp rocks and stumps that can quickly end a race run.

 I would like to explain why I hate specialized, and to be clear, I am talking about the company and not its bikes. I currently own a specialized enduro from around 06-07, a big hit 2 from 08. A Santa cruz Heckler (Around 2011) and a sinister R9. I liked both the enduro and the big hit. But I still hate specialized. I will admit they have a pretty damn good warranty department tho. Specialized has been known to use brutal strong-arm tactics to obliterate competitors (and by competitors I mean small time local bike shops who can't stand up to them and who are also no threat whatsoever...)

-there is also a lot more where this came from. Just look.

The third link mentions that specialized was responsible for putting mountain cycle out of business. As heavy as they were, mountain cycles were some pretty sweet plow bikes. The company is one gigantically colossal a*shole.

 It's crazy to me that Specialized, having put in so much time, money, and resources into the development of the Ohlins TTX, are not doing everything they can to have their two best riders riding their new shock.. the TTX is amazing. I can only imagine how well it must perform on a demo.
  • 30 1
 Sponsors gotta sponsor
  • 2 0
 For sure, I'm well aware of that, and of how sponsorship works. However, when you put that amount of time/money into shock development, it seems like it would be worth the extra money to find a way to get your two most prominent riders out on it. Agreements can always be made.. there are great things in store for Ohlins in the mtb market.
  • 2 1
 I can't remember did Gwin have the Ohlins on his Enduro? For some reason I think he did. There is also something to be said for riding what you know, and I'm sure both riders know what they have on right now really well.

 Well, at least Mitch may get to race on the Ohlins considering he helped test it w/Brad Benedict. No news on Mitch's setup though, does he not get one?

 Yea think the Ohlins is stock on the 2015 bike but Troy & Gwin have big sponsorship with Rockshox and Fox so even on the same team the guys share different sponsors like red bull - monster etc.
Specialized just spending the money for a good product for the consumer which imo is a good thing. Like the look of these bikes

 I thought I read that Mitch was running the rest of the EWS series and pulling out of the WC circuit for the remainder of the season. #29erlife
  • 1 1
 i think that specialized has agreements with rockshox (therefore SRAM components and boxxer on troy's rig) but the guys have also signed up with fox (the 40 on gwinny, the RAD shox on both). Strange though, i also remember gwinny running with a yellow shox at SPM...
  • 6 0
 Öhlins does not sponsor anyone to use their equipment. So if they want it, they have to pay for it and in turn not get paid to use it. I really doubt any racer would turn down a sweet sponsorship from Fox or Rock Shox.
  • 3 0
 Mitch isn't part of Sram's Blackbox program and is not contractually held to the same "restraints" as Brosnan, or as Gwin with Fox. He runs the TTX rear damper and has Öhlins prototype internals in his Boxxer. For a rider like him, it makes a lot of sense to run the Öhlins stuff because he isn't giving away thousands of sponsorship/endorsement dollars as Brosnan or Gwin would be doing if they did.
  • 5 6
 timkoerber^^^Consider the possibility that the Fox RAD shock simply outperforms the Ohlins for DH. Fox has been at the DH racing game a lot longer than Ohlins. Experience counts for a lot in the racing game.
  • 3 1
 Richard, you might mean that Ohlins patent have run out and RS and Fox are using twin tube design. Hence, the adjustment system. Time at doing something doesn't mean a lot at all. If the people understand and learn what they are doing this will matter. Junk engineering for 20 years is still junk. The quality of people working on the project will matter the most.
  • 3 0
 @mtorb I'm going to have to disagree with you. You simply cant discredit the amount of time, effort, and championships that have been won upon both Fox and RS platforms. You can go to school and get whatever degree you want, hop out on a job site with people who have been carpenters for 20 years and you will understand what time and effort equate to in terms of knowledge. I am not disagreeing that Ohlins isn't filled with brilliance, but you can just put a race boat engine into a trophy truck and expect the same results. Trial and error.

 The racers ask for the narrower rear end, at their level, it apparently makes a huge difference in "threading the needle" of getting the rear end through rocks & such. There's lots of quotes from years past talking about it, & it's why last gen demos were 135 on the S-works.

 If you look closely, Gwin's frame says S-works on the downtube near the BB. Troy's just says Demo. I wonder if they're riding final production colors or if these are still special team only versions.

 This bike has four things going for it - Gwin, Brosnan, Ohlins and carbon. Kinematic design - yawn. Structural design - who needs that when you have carbon. With the Specialized horst-link patent expired I really wish some manufacturer would give us the bike that the Demo could have been. Aspiring designers would do well to look closely at the Devinci Spartan for a bit of inspiration. Do it now though, before DW beats you to it.
  • 2 0
 Do you have any idea what "Kinematic design" means?
  • 2 1
 He probably hadnt hear the word Kinematic before he got on PB
  • 1 3
 Suffice to say good quality kinematic design work is what DW designed or Santa Cruz designed bikes almost always have and what Specialized bikes often lack. Anyway, you have got me wrong. I would like to see a great Demo/Demo-like bike - more like the current one than the new one but losing the sub-seatstay definitely was called for. I just am not interested in bikes that don't pedal well and that must be saved by having the best and most expensive shocks available. An affordable Demo that pedals well is not much to ask for.
