At a glance

The 2016 Specialized S-Works Epic 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.

This World Cup version of the S-Works Epic takes the concept of fast to another level. Like its counterpart standard version, it’s constructed from our finest carbon fibre and features a drool-worthy build kit and a RockShox RS-1 Brain fork. But where it differs is in its tighter geometry and one-by-specific build, which work together to form explosive power transfer and an even nimbler sense of handling. Along these lines, you’ll find that the build holds nothing back, delivering a SRAM XX1 groupset that’s lightweight and intuitive, along with XTR brakes for some of the best stopping power in the business. And to drive even harder on efficiency and speed, we included our proprietary Brain technology at the fork and rear shock.

This intelligent system is able to interpret the difference between rider and trail input, so it stays firm under effort and plush over bumps. Put it all together, and you have a purpose-built race machine that’s certain to lay waste to any short track out there.
