Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon WC Disc Mountain Bike 2017

Tipping the scales at a minuscule 1175g, the frame of the Specialized Epic Hardtail is one the lightest frames Specialized has ever made, but it’s not just the frame that has completely revolutionised the cross-country scene. The Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup 2017 hosts a vast range of race-proven components that have been specifically chosen to enhance every aspect of your ride; from climbing up technical terrain to hitting new speeds on singletrack - this bike can do it all.

At the heart of this incredible bike is the FACT 10m constructed frame. Lightweight, stiff, durable and strong - this frame is ideal for cross-country racing, especially as it boasts the best power transfer efficiency you’ll ever find within a hardtail.

The incorporation of Specialized XC 29 Geometry further enhances the climbing and technical capabilities of the Epic Expert Carbon, pinning focus on explosive speed and nimble handling rather than a more relaxed, enduring ride, much like other hardtails.

A fully customised and intelligent front fork, the RockShox SID Brain 29, provides 100mm of trail absorbing travel - but it’s not just any standard front fork. This fork features Brain technology which not only soaks up bumps, but can differentiate between the terrains pressure on the front of the bike and the riders input - this maximises power by stiffening up when impact comes from the rider, but adjusts oil flow when on the flats.

SRAM’s X1 drivetrain has been recruited by Specialized to further enhance efficiency and power transfer. This system provides a wide range of gearing to tackle steep, technical sections of the course, whilst giving enough stiffness and strength to withstand unforeseen rock strikes. The gearing is controlled through SRAM’s X1 gear lever and provides precise, reliable shifting throughout every stage of your ride.

Shimano Deore SLX M7000 hydraulic disc brakes are a further upgrade from the base Epic Hardtail model - providing unparalleled stopping power and reliability through a vast range of conditions.

Roval Control wheels with DT Swiss Internals command the incredible strength and stiffness of the rear end, alongside the M5 alloy rear end. This wheelset stops any flex when putting down the power and takes the brunt of the impacts when riding over technical terrain. The Specialized Fast Trak 29x2.2” tyres further enhance this, providing optimum levels of grip and puncture protection for a more controlled and reliable ride.

Features

  • By pairing a FACT 10m carbon fibre frame with Specialized’s XC 29 Geometry, this Epic places a focus on tight tube angles and extremely light overall weight for explosive speed and nimble handling on the race circuit. For good measure, Specialized also gave it 148mm rear spacing and all-new triangulated post-mount brake mounts
  • The Custom RockShox SID 29 w/ Brain fork provides 90/100mm of efficient travel. It features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximise your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps
  • A SRAM X1 rear derailleur controls a wide range of gears with reliable precision
