With countless XC wins, including a gold medal at the Olympics, Specialized's S-Works Epic 29 World Cup takes the concept of fast to the next level. Its state-of-the-art FACT 11m-carbon frame is not only light, it's super stiff for lightning-fast accelerations and pinpoint handling. Enhancing the incredible frame is Brain-controlled suspension along with a cutting-edge 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork, boasting an inverted design with a carbon fiber upper which provides superior stiffness, while behaving with more sensitivity to small bumps and more control over larger hits. Up and down, this pro-level ride continues with the best of the best: an efficient SRAM XX1 1x11 drivetrain delivers flawless, fast shifting, featherweight Roval carbon wheels make you feel like you're cheating, and wonderfully light, powerful Shimano XTR disc brakes have modulation to spare. Not stopping there, you get world-class S-Works carbon seatpost, a carbon-railed Phenom Pro saddle and tubeless S-Works Fast Trak tires so you can add to the Epic's win count.

Specialized FSR Rear Suspension

Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration. You'll be amazed.

Specialized Brain

The Brain is the mastermind behind Specialized's ultra-efficient suspension designs. It automatically turns the suspension "on" and "off" almost instantaneously to always provide the perfect ride. It consists of an inertia valve mounted inside a near-vertical cylinder near the rear axle. The inertia valve controls the shock's ability to compress; the resulting system responds to terrain input (bumps and dips), but not to rider input (pedaling). Forces from the ground activate the inertia valve inside the Brain, which opens and allows the shock to absorb bumps. All Brains also feature Brain Fade technology, which by using the blue dial on top of the Brain cylinder, you can control the breakaway threshold of the inertia valve in your Brain from ultra rigid and efficient to super plush and active and anywhere in between. So you can set up your bike to climb and sprint like a hardtail and still absorb bumps for maximum control over rough terrain; the ideal combination for parlaying all your hard efforts into off-road speed.

This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
