Field Test: 5 Enduro Bikes (and 1 eMTB) Face the Efficiency Test
Yeah that seems like a miss here. But still enjoyable content. Maybe they will do a separate video on just enduro comparisons, but I kind of doubt it

Specialized Turbo Levo SL Carbon Comp - XL

$7000 USD
https://www.specialized.com/us/en/turbo-levo-sl-comp-carbon/p/154891?color=263642-154891 for full spec. These are going for $8500 + tax these days. This is a 2020 (or 2021) Levo SL Carbon Comp with all stock parts except for the list below. Has about 2000miles on the frame, much less on the wheels, fork and shock (swapped out for other parts early on). It has some superficial scraps and scuffs, but nothing major. The bottom skid plate is cracked a bit, but I have a new replacement that I haven't installed. Battery is in perfect health. This is a great bike for pretty much anything. XC loops to bike park laps. Upgraded Parts: Maguar MT7 calipers w/ Shinamo XT levers for a "Shigura Setup". Great brakes. Cascade Components Linkage Blue - makes the bike more progressive which is welcome. Will include stock link as well. 800mm Specialized aluminum bars with 50mm stem (35mm) Agarro 2.6 front and 2.4 rear - with minimum wear Ergon Grips Ergon Enduro Saddle Extra MTX Ceramic brake pads A couple of Offset bushing to play with the geometry. Not currently installed Will include a EXT Storia V3, tuned for this bike (ride weight of ~180lb) with a Sprindex Coil system for +$1000 on asking price. Makes this bike a monster.

@Gibbersticks: Really? Haven’t heard of many issues with the mahle motor system. Way less reports anecdotally than the brose stuff . What happened ?

@SunsPSD: Basically , it's this. My times and feeling confirm. They didn't highlight it too much too, but even without going to the extremes - the geo changes drastically change the feeling of the bike as well. Which could make it more versatile for different types of rides.

Sadly the link doesn’t work and cascade currently is not slated to design on. Maybe if demand is higher. I have asked a few times :) The linkage is actually a bit different than the enduro when you take a close look

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Kenevo SL - An eMTB In Disguise
@KJP1230: That's my experience. It's definitely more of a "average fitness rider can now ride up with a super-fit guy on XC bike" more than "I am a superhero" advantage, but it's noticeable. Unless, all of your climbs are at 20mph+ then it won't help :)

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Kenevo SL - An eMTB In Disguise
Really? No faster than an enduro? What type of climb? On techy climbs, I have found my KSL is much quicker than the SL. Probably due to the geo being a bit more climb friendly IMO with the steeper STA. Granted my old SL was a mullet with 170mm fork but with the seat slammed fwd more than recommend. Haven't had issues with the rear wheel, but I definitely have had the seat hit me in the steeps. I think it needs a 200mm+ dropper for my proportions. No issues with pedals strikes either, but I have adjusted my pedaling technique over my past few bikes which were all low BB. I do agree it's the not the bike for everyone though (even not considering the price)

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Kenevo SL - An eMTB In Disguise
Really not aimed at the enduro market, which this test was about. I bet they release an LT or bigger travel version at some point givne the popularity. A lot of folks are long stroking a shock, mulleting, and making this a 170/160 mm beast

The S-Works comes with the range extender and associated cables as well. Not included on the expert and comps, but that would run you another $600-700 I believe.
