Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup 29er 2017 Mountain Bike

Description Specification
With all of the growth in full-suspension XC bikes, hardtails were starting to become a little same old, same old. 


So we thought to ourselves, what better time then now to shake things up with a modern, revolutionary design? Say hello to the Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup. It's one of the lightest frames we've ever made, tipping the scales around 1175g. And to do so, we built the entyre frame from our superlative carbon fibre, FACT 10m, and then we took some cues from our road bikes. We borrowed the Rider-First Engineered™ concept that originated with the Tarmac. Now, the frame design applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed and stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, and frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x148mm and included internal split-housing cable routing. For the build, this Epic hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox SID w/ Brain fork, SRAM X1 shifting, and fast rolling Roval Control wheels.



  • By pairing a FACT 10m carbon fiber frame with our XC 29 Geometry, this Epic places a focus on tight tube angles and extremely light overall weight for explosive speed and nimble handling on the race circuit. For good measure, we also gave it 148mm rear spacing and all-new triangulated post-mount brake mounts.
  • The Custom RockShox SID 29 w/ Brain fork gives 90/100mm of efficient travel. It features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximize your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps.
  • A SRAM X1 rear derailleur controls a wide range of gears with reliable precision.
