Apart from the cheaper version coil shock and the colour I cant see many obvious 2019 changes, hopefully a big reduction in price.

I would say the fork may be a Yari as Pikes do not come in a 180mm version.

It still looks bloody nice!!!

According to my LBS 2019 Spesh EMTBS due in with Specialised UK in 2 weeks, they had heard rumours of bigger range of bikes and maybe the bigger battery

To me those look smaller than 2.8 tyres. Anyone know if these version is speced with 2.6?

I called Berkshire bikes earlier, couldn't confirm the price but advised they would likely be on average 12% lower than rrp. the lower batter capacity is a bit of a put off though

Yea, it it has been lower spec but same motor and bat then I would have jumped in as I already have some fox 36 180mm and carbon hoops. But I’d rather wait for the sales and pick up a 2018 kenevo for 3600-3800 in a month-3 months

I spoke to LBS and looks like expert version of the kenevo for 2019 is unchanged apart from the colours. They have dropped the green, black continues and the will have a Matt blue colour. Comp is cheaper with smaller battery and lower spec fork - Yari, also 1.2 motor

the green was my favourite colour, do you you know if the blue is a solid blue or a fade like the green was?
