At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Epic Comp Carbon 29 World Cup is an All Mountain Carbon mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels, has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Epic range of mountain bikes.

Cross country racing has its own list of demands, and speed is at the top of the list. Our Epic Comp Carbon World Cup answers the call with a tighter geometry, along with shorter chainstays and tube lengths in comparison to a standard Epic. This gives the World Cup more explosive power transfer and nimbler handling, especially when paired up with the carbon chassis and M5 alloy rear end. As for the build, you truly start to see the theme of uncompromising speed at work, as we’ve hung some of SRAM’s most reliable parts on this bike. And to make sure that you’ll be utilizing every watt of power out of them, we included our Mini Brain rear shock that differentiates rider input from trail bumps to ensure that the bike stays stiff when you need it to.

With all of this going on, it’s easy to see why the Epic has long been the dominant force on the cross country scene.
