In Enduro events, you win the race based on your total descent time over multiple stages, so the logic of building an Enduro bike based on a championship-winning gravity bike is obvious. With a lightweight alloy tube set, 165mm of travel, and multiple enduro stage and event victories under its belt, the Sanction is a winning recipe. The young Enduro phenom Martin Maes had tremendous input into the design and ride qualities the 2018 Sanction delivers.
