The Specialized Epic hardtail is fast. Think Cheetah fast. Specialized tweaked the geometry with one goal in mind: confidence. The Epic HT is longer, slacker, and has a lower bottom bracket with an adjusted seat tube angle to maintain its legendary climbing prowess. Press on the pedals and you are greeted with the tremendous power transfer only a well-thought-out hardtail race bike can provide. Now you don’t have to fry your nerves on the way back down with traditional twitchy geometry. 

The Epic Hardtail Expert starts with the insanely light Epic FACT 11m Carbon frame with XC geometry and Rider-First engineering and then bolts on a powerhouse of parts to provide race-ready performance at an affordable price. The new RockShox SID Brain does the thinking for you with its position-sensitive bottom-adjust Brain Fade damper. Specialized parts are sprinkled throughout to save on cost and keep performance up, while SRAM handles the brakes and drivetrain.
