Specialized S-Works Epic carbon
The 1st 29er to win a World Cup event.
The Specialized S-Works Epic carbon 29er is a competition wining, full suspension, carbon fibre XC race mountain bike, fully stacked with top-grade components and is stealing headlines like “the best bike we’ve ever ridden” and “fastest bike ever tested”.
Be aware this bike is NOT for those who have to check their wallets, but rather those who say “poop I’ve misplaced a Fifty”. A quick look under the hood and it’s easy to see why. This little monster is packed with the highest spec components and bespoke technology you wont find any where else!
Like any competition grade piece of equipment, you need to spend some time to adjust and tweak it to your own personal preferences, but once you found your Goldilocks point the Epic will enhance every aspect of your riding, making tough climbs laughable, accelerating past what you thought was possible within the laws of physics and totally destroying the stigma around 29ers being slow off the block. As soon as you get into rhythm the 29er super-light wheels and rigid frame make this bike insanely stable and responsive, tackling corners like a surfboard cutback.
Once more this XC Race bike is not for those who worry about bills, but if you do have a spare £7.5K just lying around The S-works Epic will allow you to beat all your personal bests and make you fall in love with the sport all over again.
