Cross-country racing, marathon events and singletrack exploration, the 2019 Specialized Epic Expert 29" Hardtail Mountain Bike does it all. Constructed from a featherweight FACT 11m carbon fibre and featuring Specialized’s tried and tested XC geometry, this is certainly one fast machine.
Utilising boost spacing at the front and rear, the stiffness levels are fantastic, while the RockShox SID 29” Fork features size-specific travel to ensure optimum performance on a variety of different surfaces. Specialized’s own brand controls are another nice touch, complementing the frames aesthetics and high-speed intentions perfectly.
Featuring a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain and matching Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, the Epic provides slick, reliable shifting and confidence-inspiring stopping power. With a 10-50T cassette located at the rear, you can also be sure of this bikes climbing capabilities, spinning up climbs that would see rivals walking.
A racing machine through and through, the Epic rolls on a pair of Roval Control Carbon Wheels. With a 25mm internal rim width and sealed bearings, these premium offerings provide reduced rolling resistance and nearly instantaneous pickup. Similarly, the Specialized Fast Trak Tyres promote fast riding with more than adequate levels of grip, ideal for the four-season cyclist.
