2018 SPECIALIZED EPIC PRO CARBON 29"

Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and simply more challenging to ride. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short-travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? It's slacked out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes the redesigned Brain technology, Brain 2.0. nd after countless hours with the RockShox team, the new Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally new. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. The new Epic also gets a serious upgrade in the stiffness department. The Rider-First Engineered™ tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike Specialized has ever developed—no matter the frame size.
- Full fact 11m carbon fiber frame combines stiffness, strength, and light overall weight to deliver an off-the-hook race bike. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC rig you've been on.
- Our custom RockShox SID fork with Brain features a bottom-adjust Brain fade and a custom offset to make it suitable for the new Epic.
- The SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain is lightweight, features a wide range of gears, and handles the rigors of XC racing with ease.
Excellent condition, super clean, shows only light use/wear and has a fresh tune up.
