At a glance

The 2016 Specialized S-Works Epic 29 is an All Mountain Carbon mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels, has RockShox suspension and a Shimano drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Epic range of mountain bikes.

The S-Works Epic was designed to get you over the line in first position, and it holds nothing back in achieving this goal. For maximum efficiency, it’s built from our finest carbon fibre to provide a lightweight, stiff ride quality on the flats and climbs. Efficiency is taken another step further with 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 compliant over bumps. Then there’s our XC 29 Geometry that’s built for sheer speed over long courses which, after four ABSA Cape Epic wins and multiple World Championships, has truly earned its salt.

And to round out the package is a component spec that’s nothing short of future-proof, with Shimano XTR Di2 and the incomparable RockShox RS-1 fork. If speed is on the top of your list, it doesn’t get much better than this.
