Product Information

Specialized Epic Hardtail Mountain Bike

The Epic is back, ready to rock the XC scene, not only ensuring it's the fastest around the course but also the best value. The Epic hardtail boasts the same 915g frame that is featured on the Expert edition in the Epic range. This Fact 11m carbon chassis is one of the lightest and most capable frames that Specialized has made to date. Its advanced composite layup boosts vertical compliance for a more responsive ride. Specialized has lengthened the reach on the Epic whilst also reducing the head angle. This allows for a more nimble feel that allows you to corner more skillfully and feel like a Pro whilst you do it. It also increases your control over the bike, helping you to go faster for longer. The RockShox Judy 29 fork offers up to 100mm of front-end suspension featuring motion-controlled technology that adapts to the trail for you. It also has a lock-out lever for when you hit the smooth road. Finally, SRAM's NX 12-speed groupset offers plenty of range for tough ascents and fast descents, helping to push even more adrenaline through your body as you ride. 

Full Specification



The game-changer 

The Epic Hardtail sports one of the lightest production frames to date, but it’s a hell of a lot more than that. Specialized designed the most capable and comfortable racing chassis ever created because you’re not fast if you’re being pummeled by the trail. It’s a game-changer.


More control means more speed

Looking to ride faster? Who isn’t? That’s why Specialized relaxed the Epic's head angle and lengthened the reach. The Epic retains a short wheelbase for deft handling yet offers more predictable steering and a centred rider position for increased control and speed on any trail.


Stand out features 

  • One of the lightest and most capable carbon hardtail frames ever created.
  • RockShox Judy Gold 29 fork features Motion Control “lock-out” lever.
  • SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain gives you all the gearing you need to tackle the biggest climbs.
