    Weight of Enduro SL

    hey, I was wondering, what is the weight of Specialized Enduro's SL, they market it as climbs as and angel and descent as a bat from hell, but what is the weight really?

    any models that you guys know. Enduro SL Expert looks promising.

    Somehow from my opinion, its pretty cool that the Enduro SL looks like a big burly downhill bike, but its really a All Mountain rig

    My Expert was 30.4lb new including pedals. Have since upgraded the following:
    Rear wheel - Hope Pro II / DT Swiss 4.2D (replaced Shimano 525 Deore / DT430)
    Cassette - SRAM PG990 (replaced shimano deore level cassette (read paperweight!) on bike)
    Seatpost - Easton EC70
    Bars - Ritchey WCS rizer
    Tubeless - DT Swiss tubeless system
    Tyres - Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25
    Pedals - Crank Bros Candy SL
    Seat - WTB Shadow V Stealth

    Weight is now approx 27.5lb!

    The best upgrade is the rear wheel / cassette, and tubeless upgrade. The stock hub and cassette on the expert are both very heavy deore level components.

    Total cost of the above upgrades was only half the price difference between the Expert and Pro (based on New Zealand prices and buying parts online / Ebay, etc)

    I bought this bike about two months ago. A Large expert. I have since heard all these ridiculous claims of sub 30 bikes. I weighed that thing on four different scales and NEVER had anything under 31 until I changed the rear cassette/hub went tubeless conversion and carbon post. My buddy bought the medium and it had about the same changes and came in at just over thirty pounds. If your shop weighs on a fish weighing scale. They are probably full of crap. All in all an awesome bike though. Not the lightest in a crowd but well worth the weight since a stumpjumper large weighs almost 30 out of the box.

    I beg to differ. My Medium Expert was 30.4lb out of the box. The attached table gives the before and after weights of modifications made (in grams) based on the weight weenie figures. The difference in weights is 1137g, which converts to 2.5lb - hence the build weight is now easily sub 28lb.
