If you're thinking of branching out into the fast paced world of cross country racing, then the Epic comp carbon could be the ride for you. Frame tech and geometry are the same as it's top spec counterparts, and its finishing kit it wont make you wince at the price.

Tracks and trails are ever evolving, with steeper and more technical features, it's why the Epic has been re-designed from the ground up, it's had every angle, length and size re-thought. Top tube length has been increased for stability at speed, the head angle is now more relaxed for more poise over rough terrain, chain-stay length, bottom bracket height, suspension offset and stack height have all been adjusted to ensure the Epic doesn't get unsettled by the most demanding trails or world-cup tracks.

We didn't stop there though, with technology ever advancing we had to look at dropper posts as well. The seat tube has now been re-sized to accept a full length 30.9 post, meaning you have the option of using the range of Specialized Command dropper posts. Descending just got a whole lot easier.

The Epics front suspension is covered by fitting a RockShox Reba RL with a 42mm offset. This means that in tight switchbacks and technical turns the Epic still behaves, even with the slacker head angle. The forks have 100mm of travel with a Motion Control damper and a 15x110mm Maxle. At the rear is a Custom RockShox Micro Brain shock w/ Spike Valve and auto sag. The Brain 2.0 technology has an almost instant reaction to terrain changes, keeping traction to an absolute max, and to improve it even more we've moved the brain closer to the rear axle which is the most sensitive spot making the rear suspension almost flawless.

Frame construction and the material used is obviously a major part of building an XC whippet, which is why we incorporated our rider first engineered design. This places additional, specially designed carbon pieces in all the right places on the frame. The outcome being, that any flex is seriously reduced giving you a frame that is coherent regardless of the power you put through it, or the size of the frame you buy.

With all this in mind the overall weight is at the top of everyone's list, so we reduced frame curves, routed cables through the shock linkage and minimised anything we could, the result was a saving of almost 525 grams from the previous Epic.

Keeping within the budget the Epic comp carbon has been fitted with SRAM's NX 12-speed groupset and the powerful Level TL hydraulic disc brakes. Roval takes care of rolling efficiency with their 25mm wide, aluminium Control wheelset that are shod in the ever popular Fast Trak GRIPTON tyres.

  • Full fact 11m carbon fiber 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.
  • The 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle at a doable price point.
