Specialized Epic Comp Carbon Mountain Bike 2018
Enter the world of high-speed mountain bike racing with the Specialized Epic Comp Carbon Mountain Bike 2018. Constructed with a supremely low weight FACT 11m carbon fibre, the frame is responsive, rigid and allows you to speed off from the pack with greater efficiency, all whilst giving the snappy handling you’ve come to expect from the Specialized Epic.
Specialized’s XC Geometry has been tested over the years by many of the world's best, and is now proven in multiple World Cup dominations by the Specialized Factory Racing Team. It puts you in the most efficient yet aggressive position possible on the bike, meaning you can react to those split second attacks and put down the power with an immediate increase in speed.
The front end is kept in control by the RockShox Reba RL 29, which is renowned for its impressive impact absorption and control over the roughest of surfaces. Its 110x15mm Maxle Sealth thru-axle increases efficiency and durability, taking the brunt of each and every bump to keep your handling nimble and balanced.
Of course, the rear end of the bike is where you lay down the power, and the RockShox/Specialized Micro Brain keeps everything in check. Its AUTOSAG technology reduces the amount of energy lost on the trail, whilst it also keeps the rear wheel firmly planted to the floor, so when you do want to sit back and accelerate up steep climbs, you can do so with the greatest efficiency available.
SRAM’s GX, 11-speed rear derailleur and 10-42t cassette furthers this climbing ability, ensuring you’re in the right gear at the flick of a button and giving you enough spin to stop any complaint that any gradient is too steep.
SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes are behind the impressive braking performance of the Epic Comp Carbon and provides immense stopping power in a wide range of situations. Whether you’re at the top of a climb or at the foot of it, you’ll get the same braking power throughout.
Roval Control 29 wheels equipped with Specialized Fast Trak tyres are the perfect choice for a bike of this nature, keeping the handling snappy, agile and responsive, whilst the overall weight is kept to a minimum. The tyres ensure you don’t need to worry about punctures over rough surfaces, and provide all the grip you need to corner faster and descent in confidence.
- Full FACT 11m carbon fibre frame combines stiffness, strength, and light overall weight to deliver an off-the-hook race bike. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC rig you've been on
- A RockShox Reba RL fork soaks up the bumps up front, and features both compression and rebound adjustments
- An 11-speed SRAM GX groupset handles shifting duties, bringing the convenience of one-by to your XC rig
