Specialized Epic Expert Mountain Bike 2018
With a lightweight carbon frame, industry-leading suspension technology and a ready to race build kit, the Specialized Epic Expert Mountain Bike 2018 is ready to perform on every level. Everything about this bike has been redesigned, and it even features Specialized’s XC Geometry that’s been honed for impressive control, stability and responsive handling on the roughest of surfaces.
Utilising Specialized’s FACT 11m carbon fibre, the frame is impressively low in weight, but also commands incredible stiffness, strength and the durability you need when heading out for a full day of exploring/racing.
Frame and fork working together in perfect unison, the RockShox SID 29 provides 100mm of plush, impact absorbing travel to keep your front end in check. Its 100x15mm Maxle Stealth thru-axle increases rigidity and durability, allowing you to sprint out the saddle in last ditch efforts for the line or send bigger drops without falter.
The RockShox/Specialized Micro Brain shock is in charge of the rear end, ensuring it stays planted and efficient on those harsh, bumpy trails that would otherwise slow your speed. These two suspension systems are ideal for each other, reacting quickly to soften blows and get you back from impacts to full-scale, eye watering speed.
SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes are the ideal choice for a bike of this nature, offering incredibly powerful, reliable and predictable braking at the squeeze of a level. The disc brakes modulate heat efficiently, meaning you can both feather them or brake late and you’ll get the same impressive stopping power.
12-speed shifting is providing as courtesy of SRAM GX Eagle, and a 10-50t cassette gives a wide range of spin to get you up the steepest of climbs. This drivetrain is designed to take a beating, and the Truvativ Stylo crankset stays strong and rigid for powerful sprints out the saddle and last ditch efforts for the line.
- Full fact 11m carbon fibre frame combines stiffness, strength, and light overall weight to deliver an off-the-hook race bike
- The new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC rig you've been on
- Custom RockShox SID fork with Brain features a top-adjust Brain fade, and a custom offset to make it suitable for the new Epic
- The 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle at a doable price point
