Lightweight carbon frame? Check. Industry-leading suspension technology? Oh yeah. Race-ready build kit? You know it.

Straight out of production, the newly redesigned Specialized Epic has proven itself to be a race-winning machine.

Kate Courtney won USA National Pro Championships on the Epic at Snowshoe Mountain Resort 2 weeks ago, as well as the Boston Rebellion Cup, Julbo Eastern Grind MTB race, and the UCI MTB World Cup Race in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
