Video: First Look at the New Specialized Demo, Aaron Gwin’s New World Cup DH Bike

The Specialized Demo has been completely redesigned for 2015 with the help of Aaron Gwin and other top downhill racing pros. Check out this first-look teaser from Red Bull about the design and development of the new rig. One thing is certain: this rear suspension design is pretty radical!

Note: word on the street is that this bike will retail for $13,500, with some people claiming closer to $14,500… but I haven’t seen an official MSRP yet. Regardless, you can bet that the price will be somewhere between ridiculously expensive and take-out-a-second-mortgage.

Availability: January 2015.
