Specialized Epic Comp Carbon EVO

Specialized

5800

Cross Country
We took our ultralight and efficient carbon-fiber Epic chassis and then added a mix of components that increases your fun factor without also making your checking account weep. The end result is this bike right here. The Epic Comp Carbon EVO is proof that sometimes you actually can have it all. A MORE EPIC KIND OF EPIC Dropper posts and slightly longer forks may seem like overkill on an XC bike. We beg to differ.
Epic EVOs are not only fast off the start line, they're even better suited to masochistically long rides, multi-day stage races, and fast backcountry missions. HARDTAIL EFFICIENT. FULL-SUSPENSION CONTROL Suspension should always make you faster—never slow you down with energy-sucking suspension bob. Our ingenious Brain-equipped shocks keep the Epic firm when the trail is smooth, then automatically turns your bike plush the moment your tires meet rocks and roots. • Race-proven, carbon chassis and ingenious Brain suspension—nothing’s faster. • 120mm-travel RockShox Reba RL fork increases the EVO’s downhill capability. • An X-Fusion Manic dropper seatpost increases control on steep descents.
