When Jesse Melamed made his first appearance for Canyon CLLCTV at the Tasmanian Enduro World Cup rounds, his race bike was a Canyon Spectral. The German brand’s trail bike is definitely race-worthy, but it isn’t its enduro-specific bike. That would be the Strive.
A couple of months later, Enduro World Cup racing is shifting to Europe and Melamed has moved over to the shape-shifting enduro specialist. Before that happens, take deep dive into how the Canadian set up his Spectral for the first two races in Tasmania, and why he opted for the Spectral over the bigger Strive. Melamed’s known for being really into the details of his gear selection, so this isn’t your average bike check.

Discovery Sports, the new Enduro World Cup broadcaster, followed the reigning champion through the first two races of the season. Check out the behind the scenes look at what when down in Tasmania.
