Flat out fast on every race track. The Specialized S-Works Epic is a carbon full sus 29er mountain bike that combines cutting edge suspension technology with race proven XC components to offer race winning performance at events of the very highest level.
Completely redesigned from the ground up the new S-Works Epic is lighter, smarter and faster than ever. The first full suspension bike to win a World Cup XC race, the Epic was ahead of its time when first released. As cross-country race courses have become more technical with steep sections, jumps and rock gardens the advantages the Epic offers have become increasingly relevant.
Built with the very best materials, the FACT 12m carbon frame features revised geometry which offers improved performance on technical terrain. The reach is longer and the head tube angle is slightly slacker which makes the bike much more stable at speed. To keep the handling nimble in the tight corners and switchbacks, the fork features a custom 42mm offset that works with the slacker head angle to offer the ideal all round XC race performance.
Over 500 grams lighter than the previous model, the new S-Works Epic frame features a complex carbon layup that offers improved front end stiffness for improved ride quality and control. Rider-First Engineered™, the frame tubes are all size specific. This means that you get the same great handling characteristics whichever size you ride. Boost hub spacing further improves handling by allowing for a stiffer wheel build.
At the heart of the S-Works Epic’s performance is the redesigned Brain technology that works with the rear suspension to keep the rear end supple over the rough stuff but stiff on smooth ground. This means that you get all the performance advantages of rear suspension without losing pedalling efficiency. Brain 2.0 is now closer to the rear axle so it is now in the most sensitive spot which, with the redesigned internals, offers seamless reactions to bump forces as well as more consistent damping performance. The hose that connects the Brian to the RockShox shock is integrated into the suspension links which offers an improved oil path as well as offering a cleaner, sleeker design.
The winningest suspension fork ever, the RockShox SID fork offers 100mm of suspension travel and features Brain technology to perfectly complement the rear. The Brain Fade adjuster on the crown allows you to dial in the performance to suit the track.
Delivering slick, reliable shifting with quiet running and a massive 500% gear range is the SRAM XX1 Eagle 1×12 speed drivetrain. Built for XC racing XX1 Eagle will help you to make the most of every section of trail without worrying about dropping a chain. SRAM Level Ultimate brakes combine lightweight with powerful performance in all conditions. With the hand built Roval Control Carbon 29” wheels you know you are getting the very best, lightweight-yet-tough rolling performance.
Release you cross-country race performance and aim for the podium on the Specialized S-Works Epic.
