DOWNHILL RACE
Racing Downhill is a balance of calculated risk and confidence in one’s ability and equipment.
Designed and engineered to be the ultimate race bike, the World-Championship-winning
Demo 8 features 200mm of FSR suspension and DH Race geometry to give riders maximum
control on the sport’s gnarliest terrain. The Demo’s low center of gravity, short chainstays,
and durable alloy frame combine to deliver the world-class handling the Demo 8 is known for,
now with 650b wheels and all-new sizing.
PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES
•
Demo 8 II has premium shifting performance from
the 135x12mm rear-end spacing, 10T micro drive cassette, and 34T chainring
•
New S3 (Style Specific Sizing) geometry lets you pick
your wheelbase and cockpit length without compromising standover
•
World-class handling of the lightweight M5 alloy
frames built with DH Race Geometry, 1.5-inch headtube, and DH-tuned FSR suspension with sub-stay.
Complete bikes feature 135mm rear hub spacing and
650b wheels
•
The new benchmark of suspension performance
with the FSR coupled with the all-new custom Öhlins
TTX22M rear shock
WHY IT'S GREAT
M5 ALLOY DH FRAME
designed for the DH experience.
WHAT: Our proprietary FSR suspension
paired with larger, faster rolling 650b
wheels, all specially tuned for the rigors
of DH racing with sub-seatstay.
WHY: Makes the Demo as strong and
light as possible, without sacrificing
compatibility with industry-standard
interfaces to accommodate aftermarket
components. Helps riders maximize
speed while considerably reducing risk.
WHY: Gives the Demo razor-sharp
handling without sacrificing our
legendary FSR suspension
performance. Keeps the rear end
compact and sleek, while lowering the
center of gravity for maximum control
when braking, cornering and
accelerating.
HOW: The sub-seatstay allows us to
drive the shock off the chainstays, as
opposed to the seatstay, which
effectively lowers the center of gravity,
and allows us to control the leverage
ratio independently.
DH-TUNED COMPONENTS
WHAT: The strongest and lightest
components available, expressly
HOW: Working closely with the
Specialized Factory team and various
manufacturers allows us to dial the
components to work in perfect concert
with the Demo platform. We test the
components at every stage of
development and make adjustments to
elicit customized performance from
crucial components, like wheels, brakes,
and drivetrain.
ÖHLINS TTX DOWNHILL SHOCK
WHAT: The ultimate downhill racing
shock, the Öhlins TTX. This exclusive
partnership between Specialized and
Öhlins is unique with a fresh perspective
in changing how mountain bikes interact
with suspension.
WHY: The gravity world is at the
forefront of technology, as it puts
unbelievable stress on equipment. The
goal for the TTX shock was to deliver the
control, adjustability, and light weight the
gravity rider deserves.
HOW: The TTX is the only shock
technology that truly offers low
hysteresis damping performance. This
translates into a ride quality of bump
absorption and traction that is
unmatched in our industry today. This
performance gain is substantial and
easily appreciated by the rider as straight
line stability and corner speed improves
dramatically. The shock, TTX22M, uses
Öhlins patented twin-tube design to
separate compression from rebound,
and has been custom made for only
Specialized. The TTX22M also uses
spherical bearings on the forward shock
mount to allow the shock to rotate while
the bike is under side-load.
