The S-Works Epic XX1 Eagle Mountain Bike is revolutionary in its own rights. Featuring 12m Carbon Fibre which is the highest grade available from Specialized and comes with the perfect balance between stiffness, weight and comfort. The S-Works Epic features the RockShox Reba RL fork which provides you with 100m of travel which helps to limit the amount of shock experienced whilst riding. The SRAM XX1 Eagle groupset which this bike features is the best in its class. Whilst being incredibly lightweight, the shifting is smooth and reliable no matter how bad the conditions get. Finally, the Epic features hand built Specialized Roval Control SL, tubeless-ready wheels that are assured to have you making the most of each and every ride.
The new Epic gets a serious upgrade in the stiffness department. The Rider-First Engineered™ tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike that Specialized has ever developed—no matter the frame size.
Redesigned Brain technology (Brain 2.0) has changed the way the bike world looked at the suspension, both its inefficiencies and benefits alike. It has won races and put a flag on the ground for Specialized as a true leader in innovation and suspension development. 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.
