Cross country courses are nothing like they used to be. Today’s tracks have more in common with trail riding than the pancake flat NORBA courses of yesteryear. For this reason, we threw away the hardtail rulebook and drafted our own chapter to create the Epic Hardtail Comp. We took a revolutionary new frame design and spec’d it specifically for the rigors of racing contemporary XC courses. It’s one of the lightest frames we’ve ever made, tipping the scales around 1175g.
A 2018 Specialized Men's Epic Hardtail Comp is typically priced around $3,500 AUD when new. Be sure to shop around for the best price, and also look to the used market for a great deal.
The 2018 Specialized Men's Epic Hardtail Comp has 29" wheels.
