Technical Specifications
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 Specialized/RockShox Reba S29 fork with carbon crown and Reba Team damper features a titanium motion control damper, FloodGate adjust and lockout for the optimal mix of beauty and brawn
  • Specialized and Fox blend their brains to develop the new FlowControl Mini Brain shock with Brain Fade adjust inertia valve, air spring and adjustable rebound for trophy-stockpiling performance
