Specialized S-Works Epic EVO



Cross Country
Ever been in the middle of stage race or a massive backcountry ride and needed just a little more margin for error on the descents? Yeah, we've been there, too. And that's why we made the perfect ultra-light, ultra-fast bike for precisely those situations. 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. • S-Works, carbon chassis and ingenious Brain-equipped suspension—nothing’s faster. • FOX Factory Step-Cast 34, with all the trimmings—including Fit4 damper and Kashima coating. • Shimano XTR 12-speed drivetrain provides lightning-quick and precise shifts.
