With a XC World Championship to its name and complete bike weights as low as 21.5 pounds, the Epic® is the lightest, most efficient and fastest performance cross-country bike available. An integrated approach to the design of all its critical components, along with an enhanced AFR inertia rear shock and Specialized/FOX Shox Mini Brain® damper, will no doubt make a full suspension convert out of any competition- hungry rider.
  • Custom RockShox Reba SL 29er with 100mm travel, rebound, compression and lockout adjust allows this 29er to soak up the rockies like its smaller 26" brother
  • 29" M5 alloy Competitive XC frame with 90mm of supple FSR suspension features 29"-specific geometry with short chainstays, low BB and roomy top tube for confident all-day riding and racing
  • Specialized and Fox blend their brains to develop the new FlowControl Mini Brain shock with Brain Fade inertia valve, air spring and adjustable rebound, with travel optimized for the 29" frame
