A perfect introduction to your world of XC riding and racing, the Epic Comp Carbon features all of the same frame technologies that are found in its older siblings, only with a build that lets you give racing a try without breaking the bank.
The new Epic gets a serious upgrade in the stiffness department. The Rider-First Engineered™ tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size- specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike Specialized have ever developed - no matter the frame size.
With the goal of the new Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike, it has gone on a diet and lost nearly 525 grams over the 2017 model by the utilisation on an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension, straight tubes with less curves, and optimised torsion profiles in every section.
The build of the Epic Comp is value-packed, featuring an 11-speed SRAM GX groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control alloy wheelset.
- Full fact 11m carbon fibre frame combines stiffness, strength, and light overall weight to deliver an off-the-hook race bike. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC rig you've been on.
- A RockShox Reba RL fork soaks up the bumps up front, and features both compression and rebound adjustments.
- An 11-speed SRAM GX groupset handles shifting duties, bringing the convenience of one-by to your XC rig.
