A faster, smoother ride
XC world champion, Olympic champion and all round race rocket, the Specialized Epic is the lightest, most efficient and with out a doubt, the fastest full suspension XC full suspension bike available.
95mm of race ready suspension floats over even the roughest of courses. The high-tech suspension (both the fork and the rear shock) features Brain technology, which, using inertia valve technology differentiates between rider input (pedaling forces) and terrain impacts (rocks & roots). This results in improved efficiency and ultimately, a faster, smoother ride.
29er geometry, tuned for explosive power, whilst maintaining excellent handling for the most demanding, twisting singletrack. The lightweight FACT IS carbon frame, featuring an oversized PF30 bottom bracket, improves stiffness, allowing for even the most powerful riders to sprint into the lead.
The World Cup variants of the Epic all feature a 1x11 set up, ensuring crisp, precise shifting in the worst of conditions. With an exceptional gear range, this set-up has been purpose built for XC racing and trail riding and already has a proven track record of the race circuit.
Sram X1, Magura MTS brakes and Roval wheels make up the Epic Elite, whereas the Epic Expert upgrades to Sram X01 and carbon wheels. Both models feature a FACT 10m frame, with a M5 aluminum rear end. The top of the line S-Works model features a collection of the highest quality components. A full Sram XX1 groupset, Roval Control SL carbon wheels and a full carbon frame make this one of the lightest full suspension mountain bikes available.
