the Epic Evo S-work it Specialized first Rider-First Engineered™ MTB frames, where the tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, regardless of the frame size. As a result, stiffness is increased in the front-end for a vast improvement in the ride and in control. And to go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best-riding XC bike we've ever developed.
And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you’re thinking, "What about the weight?” We’re glad you asked. The weight- savings on the frame is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 525 grams. And now, carbon models also feature additional tire clearance to accommodate wider, 2.3-inch tires. More traction, ultimately, equals more speed.
The build of this S-Works Epic EVO spares no expense, featuring Shimano’s new 12-speed XTR groupset and brakes, a FOX Factory Step-Cast 34 fork, and a hand-built Roval Control SL carbon wheelset. The Epic EVO also features our Brain 2.0
