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. 

S-Works Epic Hardtail XTR starts with Specialized’s new S-Works Epic HT frame, which is the lightest frame ever made. Specialized did everything just short of using helium when they designed it. Shimano’s new 12-speed XTR drivetrain and four-piston brakes provide some of the smoothest shifts and best modulation in the business. Roval Control SL hookless carbon rims are laced to Roval Control SL hubs for an ultralight, ultra-durable wheel-set.
