The full-suspension, carbon fiber, S-Works Epic 29 is the first 29er to win a World Cup event, and the bike Mountain Bike Action magazine describes as the "best bike we've ever ridden". One of two S-Works versions, this model is equipped with Shimano's XTR component group.

  • Specialized FACT OSBB, PF30, carbon crankset with 38/24 chainrings, is paired with a SRAM spider and rings for ultimate power transfer
  • Specialized/FOX remote Mini-Brain inertia-valve shock with AUTOSAG, Kashima coating and new 2013 tune to seamlessly transition from efficient pedaling on smooth terrain to fully active on rough terrain

  • Super-light FACT IS 11m full carbon frame with dedicated 29er geometry, PF30 BB, sealed cartridge bearing pivots and 142mm dropouts delivers the all-around best performing 100mm-travel Competitive XC bike
  • Roval Control SL 29 142+ wheelset with carbon rims, OS28 end caps, 142+ spacing, and DT Swiss spokes and internals is insanely stiff, light and durable for greater control and quickness
  • All-new Sip Grip, a lock-on, Aramid infused, half-waffle MTB grip boosts durability, comfort and control
  • Shimano XTR Shadow Plus mid-cage, 10-speed rear derailleur is tough, lightweight, and delivers pinpoint shifts
