Specialized Epic Comp Carbon Womens Mountain Bike 2018
Head out onto the course with the greatest confidence in your ride with the Specialized Epic Comp Carbon Womens Mountain Bike 2018. Designed to tame rowdy rock gardens, quad searing ascents and give the punchy accelerations you need to explode away from the pack, this bike truly is one a kind.
The full FACT 11m carbon fibre frame has every ounce of performance pumped into it, but stays impressively low weight for responsive, snappy handling that’ll see you negotiating the course without worry. It features Specialized’s tried and tested XC Geometry that has been ridden to multiple World Cup wins by none other than pro rider, Kate Courtney, and is lauded as a supremely comfortable, yet stiff and agile bike.
RockShox’s Reba RL 29 front fork offers 100mm of plush, impact absorbing suspension to keep your handling controlled and easily maneuverable, whilst the RX Women’s Tune is a testament to Specialized’s understanding of the different sexes. This tuning gives a completely different, reactive base to the Men’s version, following from years of research and development.
In the rear, RockShox’s Brain with the Women’s RX Tune keeps the tyre on the ground and you pedalling more efficiently than ever. A fast and reactive rebound means your rear end isn’t squabbling with the technical terrain as you plow through rock gardens, and whatever way you point the front end, your rear will follow with ease.
Of course, all this immense speed and impact absorption is nothing without strong, reliable braking that’ll see you efficiently scrubbing speed before the turns, and that’s provided with SRAM’s Level TL hydraulic brake set. A mixture of 160/180mm rotors enhances your confidence on those long, winding descents that see’s you feathering the brakes continuously, whilst impressive heat modulation ensures you get the same performance whether it’s pouring down with rain of blazing with sunshine.
SRAM GX 11-speed gearing with an 11-42t cassette gives a wide range of spin to get you up both the steepest of climbs and fastest descents. Applauded for its ability to take on rock strikes and crashes without falter, this gear system keeps your legs spinning in the right gear and shifts faster than most other drivetrains.
Finished with Roval 29 Control wheels and Specialized Fast Trak tyres, everything about this bike is ready to perform. These wheels are supremely strong and lightweight, keeping your handling snappy and nimble, whilst the tyres are fast rolling yet offer the grip you yearn for on loose, loamy surfaces.
