Killian Callaghan won the U21 EWS World Championships back in 2017 and proved that he has what it takes to race with some of the best in the world. Fast forward to 2019 and Callaghan is in the elite field with a fresh new Enduro 29 that hopefully should propel him to some good finishes this season.
One of a few fresh new faces on Specialized's EWS team, Killian is Greg Callaghan's cousin, and is off to a solid start in carrying the racing success down the line in the family.
Killian is 6' tall and weighs about 190 pounds. He rides a size large bike and is working on making the transition from working on his own bikes out of the back of his van to having Specialized's Patty Young and a full support crew this season.
Check out some of the details of his bike set up along with photos below.
