    Epic EVO

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    Remember when cross country didn’t always involve a starting gun? So do we.

    And, while it’ll never turn down a number plate, Epic EVO is well-acquainted with the fact that the next ridgeline makes a perfectly good finish line too, offering an incredible combination of pedaling efficiency and impressive trail-taming capability to get you there faster.

    While the Epic EVO sees a seemingly modest 20-millimeter increase in suspension travel up front over its Epic stablemate and just 10-millimeters out back, we’ve worked overtime to make sure it’s been implemented in a way that’ll have you saying ‘Whoa!’ as soon as you hit your first stretch of singletrack.

    Meticulously engineered to retain as much of the Epic’s standard-setting efficiency as possible, the EVO’s new suspension kinematics work in concert with our Rx XC shock tune to ensure you're able to make the absolute most out of every inch of travel on tap, while still offering increased anti-squat characteristics for improved pedaling efficiency.

    With plenty of practice at staying ahead of the curve, the Epic EVO now lays claim to the most capable iteration of our Progressive XC Geometry ever to grace an Epic. It’s also more versatile than ever thanks to a new flip chip-equipped rear end that allows riders to adjust headtube angle and bottom bracket height to easily customize the Epic EVO’s handling characteristics.

    Epic EVO’s flyweight FACT 11m carbon frame features heavy-hitting SRAM components and RockShox suspension for a package tailor-made for making miles disappear faster than ever.

    Epic Evo is a great bike.

    Almost perfect

    I've had this bike for eight months now and it has been generally excellent. The frame and suspension work so well together and really inspire confidence. I run the tyres tubeless and these have worked very well. The grip has been good; especially if you run the pressure a bit lower than standard (I run mine at about 30psi). The dropper post works well. This is my first bike with a dropper and I have wanted one for a long time. My previous bike was a specialized camber comp. My only gripe with this bike is the SRAM brakes. This was an issue with my camber and I eventually swapped them out. The brakes have reasonable stopping power but after just eight months have developed too much play in the levers. The pads are fine. They don't need bleeding as they are not spongey, they just had too much travel before they begin braking.

    I havent had a chance

    I havent had a chance to ride it yet but the service from Specialised has been great. Buying an MTB is complex so you need genuinely experienced people to talk to, and Specialised provided that. Quick and easy delivery too

    I bought this to replace

    I bought this to replace my Specialized Pitch hardtail. What an improvement! Instead of bouncing and sliding over humps and bumps it just glides over them and I can complete my regular single track route quicker and safer (the Monkey Trail on Cannock Chase) The hydraulic seat post is a real benefit, and having a single rear derailieur makes changing up and down quick and easy.

    Solid bike

    A very good bike overall. Easy to set up and keep dialled. I don’t have anything that I can find that I’d change besides grips and they could have stayed to be honest. Get frame protection because scratches and chips are the worst. I love this bike. It’s the raspberry coloured one so it’s different and not like everyone else’s. I like that.
