Cross Country Mountain Bikes

Countless Olympians, World Champs, and 9-to-5 citizen racers have ridden to victory aboard Specialized cross country bikes. We build XC machines that are not only ultralight, but also ultra-capable, because you’re faster when you’re in total control. So, whether you’re looking to race your best season or just want a fast bike for all occasions, this is the place to start.

INSTANT SPEED

XC MTB TIRES

Hey, let’s install some heavy, energy-sucking tires on race day. Said no one. Ever. Which is why we build the lightest, quickest-rolling, and best-handling XC tires out there. Each model features race-tailored compounds, casings, and tread designs, and is available in multiple configurations, so you’ll always have the right option for the day’s conditions.

THINK FASTEST

EPIC

With more World Championships, Olympic medals, and national titles to its credit than we can count, the Epic sits atop the XC racing throne. And with good reason. The bike’s modern geometry boosts your control on technical courses, while its ultralight chassis pairs perfectly with the Brain-equipped suspension. Hardtail firm for the sprints and climbs. Plush when the trail gets ugly. Epic for the win.

A MORE "EPIC" EPIC

EPIC EVO

The Epic has rocketed more racers to the podium than any bike in its class. Racing between the tape, however, isn’t the only way to worship at the altar of speed. Long, fast rides, marathon events over technical terrain—these are the Epic EVO’s domain. If your version of cross country includes plenty of rocks, roots, and hang-on-for-dear-life moments, the Epic EVO has you covered.

The lightest production hardtail on earth is also now the most capable and comfortable racing machine ever created. Behold the game-changer—the Epic Hardtail. We refined every inch of this bike to create the world’s lightest, fastest, and most forgiving race machine, because you’re not reaching the podium if you’re getting pummeled by the trail.
