Riding downhill terrains is undoubtedly a demanding discipline that commands trust in yourself and your equipment. The Demo 8 I Carbon by Specialized ticks all the boxes, providing you with a high-performing machine built to conquer the roughest trails with poise.

The robust yet lightweight carbon fibre construction of the Demo 8 I Carbon sets the standard in downhill biking. We've used our superior FACT 10m carbon fibre, known for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio, to build this racing powerhouse while our acclaimed S3 650b geometry provides a perfect combination of dexterity and stability, allowing for enhanced control at high speeds.

As for suspension, this downhill marvel features a hefty 200mm upfront through a RockShox BoXXer RC 650b and matches it at the rear with a revolutionary Öhlins rear shock. This balanced suspension setup ensures a smooth ride over the bumpiest terrain, increasing your confidence to charge down any track.

Equipped with SRAM's robust Guide R brakes, a one-by SRAM drivetrain and our renowned Butcher & Slaughter DH tyres, it's crystal clear why the Demo 8 I Carbon has claimed numerous racing victories.

  • Made using full FACT 10m carbon fibre, the frame strikes an outstanding balance between strength, stiffness, and light weight. The asymmetrical design enhances durability while still allowing ample access. Coupled with our proven S3 Geometry, this bike can handle big hits without compromising on manoeuvrability.
  • The Rockshox BoXXer Team 27.5 fork is engineered for tackling the toughest terrains. Its 200mm of travel, efficient Motion Control IS damping, and Power Bulge reinforced lower legs yield exemplary stiffness and inspire confidence.
  • The SRAM GX clutched rear derailleur ensures a steady ride even in rocky terrains. The probability of dropped chains is significantly reduced, letting you sprint out of tricky sections with ease.
