 I've got the 2008 model (so my Pro Carbon has the awsome E150 triple crown fork, which Specialized now only include on the S-Works model unfortunately). I have to say this bike is awsome. It rips up the XC trails beautifully and quickly but I have also had some burly wheels made up (using Mavic EX-729 rims + Maxxis minion DH 2.5" tyres) for my free ride and downhill adventures. This makes the bike really feel very close to a Big Hit or SX Trail because of the extra weight. I love Specialized for their integrated approach, and the build quality is insanely good. You can adjust the geometry too depending on your riding style - and it goes pretty damn slack if you want it to. I am finding it really difficult to say anything bad about this bike other than to say the E150 fork has a non-standard 25mm bolt through hub/axle but it was easy and cheap to get another one directly from Specialized to make up my burly wheels. The only other mod I have made is to go to a double ring and bash setup to get rid of that pesky big ring. If you want a truly versatile and lightweight machine then this ticks every box going for me.

 this bike is super dialed, just replace the front rotor from an 8 to a 7, single the front out and get new bars, then this bike is probably one of the most beautiful works of art known to man.

A wheelset designed and built for the demands of All-Mountain riding: high quality DT Swiss rims and spokes, DT Swiss 370 rear hub with a Two-Pawl freehub and RWS quick release, Specialized Hi-Lo front hub with 25mm thru-axle.

Enduro FACT Az1 9m carbon main triangle trims weight and adds stiffness for enhanced control. Adjustable geometry allows for situation-specific tuning. Full cartridge bearings enhance durability.

Shimano XT Hollowtech II crank custom for Specialized. Hollow forged crankarms and integrated pipe billet bottom bracket ensure stiffness and efficiency. SG-X chainrings provide smooth, dependable shifts.

Specialized AFR Shock provides 150mm of air-sprung travel. Damping curve and spring rate perfectly match the telemetry of the FSR suspension, ensuring optimal bump force management and maximum control.

The Fox 32 Talas RL fork gets the job done with 150, 130 and 110mm of proven adjustable travel with compression/rebound adjust for efficient climbing and descending.
