The Specialized Epic continues to be one of the most popular and victorious XC race bikes ever. A lightweight build, incredibly efficient pedaling, and innovative technology create a bike that’s seen over 100 World Cup Wins. Current models have 29er wheels, 100mm travel, and use the Specialized Brain damper system in the shock, automatically switching from plush to active depending on terrain.
The S-Works Epic is designed to be a light, agile, and fast XC racer. This full-carbon race bike currently comes with 29er wheels, 100mm of travel, and an AXS groupset as the highest-end model in the Epic lineup. Not only is speed the priority on this bike, but comfort, agility, and performance take no backseat. For serious racers who love to go fast but still want a capable XC bike for varying terrain, the S-Works Epic delivers.
The Epic Evo packs more punch on descents with 10mm more travel and slightly more progressive geometry. While still sticking to the XC roots of the Epic, the Evo takes on more traditional trails with comfort, stability, and capable handling for a wider group of riders and rougher trails. Fast, forgiving, and smooth, this XC bike packs a lot of giddy-up no matter the terrain.
The Epic Comp provides a fast, fun, and dependable XC ride with a more budget-friendly price tag. From weekend races to fun and fast rides, this bike uses the same innovative technology like the BRAIN suspension and a carbon frame as the other Epic models. All while keeping the price lower by using reliable components that don’t break the bank.
