At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Epic Elite 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.

- Where speed meets downright tough, you’ll find our Epic Elite Carbon World Cup. Compared to a standard Epic, you’ll find that the World Cup features shorter tube lengths and chainstays and a significantly tighter geometry. Why? Two reasons: more explosive power transfer and nimbler handling. And when coupled with the Elite’s carbon chassis and M5 alloy rear end, you start to get the full picture of how this bike is balanced.

But if you need more clarity, look no further than its build. It features a powerful mix of workhorse components from SRAM and Shimano, hand-built alloy wheels, and one of the most sought after suspension systems in the world—complete with our ultra-efficient Brain technology. So if you need a XC rig that can dish it out season after season, you’ve come to the right place.
