The new 2011 Specialized Demo 8 One gets a makeover. It is built thinner and with a rear wider than the 2010 model. It has a rearward shock eyelet which can be rotated to 90 degrees. The rear end is 150x12mm and uses the SRAM drivetrain.

The Demo 8 One has a Boxxer race fork and features a modified center of gravity. It has been lowered, making the shock sit on the lower part of the frame. It also has a low BB height as for when you bring the COG down.

The 2011 Specialized Demo 8 One’s headtube is 8mm shorter than its predecessor. You can also mount the shock through the tire and this was mainly because of the lowered center of gravity.
