Product Information

Specialized Epic Expert Men's Mountain Bike

One of our all-time favourite mountain bikes, the 2019 Specialized Epic builds on the re-engineered 2018 model to refine what was already a perfect bike for The South Downs (the South Downs Way starts within a mile from the front door of The Tri Store!). The Epic is as it states EPIC. Featuring Brain 2.0 technology which seamlessly smoothes out the bumps on the trail, Rider-First Engineered™ design that ensures the right geometry for every frame size, Fact 11m super lightweight carbon fibre as well as SRAM's 12-Speed GX groupset that provides the best mountain bike componentry in the business. The Specialized Epic utilises years of research and design in mountain biking to deliver a bike that is guaranteed to smash the XC scene to pieces by combining superior strength and stiffness whilst remaining lightweight. This latest edition is built to cope with the ever-changing XC course through an increased reach which makes the bike more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride as well as the capability to fit full-length dropper seat-posts that fits in the 30.9mm seat tube and a slacker head angle that behaves itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. The Expert model has improved over the Comp Carbon edition thanks to its hand-built carbon wheelset that helps to take the inconsistencies out of the trail and instead turn them into energy you can use to propel you forward as well as the RockShox SID Brain 29 fork which boosts damping performance, creating an incredibly sleek ride.  

Full Specification



Fact 11m Carbon Fibre

Full fact 11m carbon fibre 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.


12-Speed SRAM GX Eagle Groupset

This build of the Epic Expert meshes performance with value, featuring a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a hand-built Roval Control carbon fibre wheelset. 


Brain 2.0 Technology

The Brain changed the way the bike world looked at the suspension, both its inefficiencies and benefits alike. By moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And 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.
