The Specialized Epic is a cross-country racing weapon. The innovative Brain suspension, created in collaboration with RockShox, keeps the suspension stiff when the trail is smooth and the rider is pedaling. When the wheels start taking hits, the Brain technology allows the full 100mm of travel to get in on the action. The dropper post gives you some freedom when the trail gets rough and the SRAM X01 groupset gives you the reliable power transfer you need on the toughest courses. When you add in the FACT carbon frame and Roval Control carbon wheels, you get a seriously fast, unbelievably efficient cross-country bike built to destroy the competition.
