Specialized launch new Epic

A pedigree that boasts more World Cup, World Championship, Olympic, and Cape Epic wins than we can count—if a bike were the sum of its accolades, the Epic would sit atop the throne. And to make sure of it, our new Epic features a completely redesigned, ultra-lightweight frame, confidence-inspiring geometry, and a totally new Brain rear shock that’s engineered to read the terrain for the most efficient ride possible, making it the fastest XC bike on the planet.

‘Rider First Engineered’ EPIC, it’s incredibly fast and light, saving up to 525g from the previous Epic, after we have been able to drop the horse link (FSR) and develop a brand new custom brain.

IT’S LIGHTER

Rider-First Engineered™ frame that saves *up to 525 grams, while also maintainingstiffness. Not an easy task—yes, that is frame weight alone (*Pro, Expert, and Compframes).

IT’S SMARTER

New Brain 2.0 is completely redesigned. Sitting closer to the rear axle for improved bump responsiveness and a new layout and oil flow path for more consistent damping control and bump performance.

IT’S FASTER

Longer reach, slacker head tube, & custom fork offset creates a better handling package.  Climbing or descending, stability, and confidence are no longer afterthoughts.
