If you're the type who carefully assesses each piece of equipment for optimal performance, the S-Works Epic from Specialized is designed with you in mind. Developed following exhaustive design experimentation, rigorous testing, and extensive data analysis, this design is primed to deliver all-out speed like no other.

Boasting a legacy of remarkable efficiency and swift results, the S-Works Epic seamlessly blends hardtail prowess with full-suspension capability. With over 100 World Cup wins and podium placements under its belt, this model stands as an unyielding testament to Specialized's relentless pursuit of speed.

A Smarter BRAIN

BRAIN suspension, the innovative core of the Epic range, has been meticulously reengineered. This cutting-edge creation ensures effortless, ultra-efficient suspension that’s finely attuned to speed. Expect an unrivalled pedalling platform that optimally harnesses your wattage for swift and smooth forward motion, while skilfully defeating momentum-impeding chatter and heavy impacts.


With a prime focus on effective power transmission and improved handling, the S-Works Epic frame manifests a 15% increase in rear-triangle rigidity. With this upgrade, the potential of BRAIN's race-tuned pedalling platform can be fully realized. Premium FACT 12m Carbon and a specially tailored layering schedule contribute to impressive weight saving, while the employment of a carbon-fiber shock link helps shave over 100 grams off the previous S-Works model.

In perfect tandem with the BRAIN rear shock for balanced suspension performance, the S-Works' Position-Sensitive BRAIN fork finds a collaborative match in the RockShox’s sleek yet sturdy SID SL Ultimate chassis. This combination boosts front-end rigidity and handling precision, while keeping weight to a bare minimum.

Outfitted with SRAM's top-tier XX1 Eagle AXS group, enjoy crisp, electronically-controlled shifts. Paired perfectly with Roval's bespoke Control SL rims designed especially for the Epic's high-speed performance and enhanced handling, this is a bike that will elevate your rides to new levels.

Cycle to Work Scheme: Affordable Riding for UK Employees

Unlock a cost-effective way to own the bike of your dreams through the Cycle to Work Scheme. This initiative, available to employees in the UK, lets you enjoy the benefits of cycling while saving on your bike purchase.

With the Cycle to Work Scheme, you can use your pre-tax salary to acquire a brand-new bicycle and essential cycling accessories. This means significant savings for you, as your salary sacrifice reduces both your income tax and National Insurance contributions.

The process is seamless: Choose the bike that suits your needs and budget from our extensive range. Your employer will then set up a salary sacrifice arrangement, spreading the cost of your bike over a specified period, typically 12 to 18 months.

Once the salary sacrifice period ends, you have the option to own the bike outright for a nominal fee, ensuring you get to keep and enjoy your trusted two-wheeled companion for years to come.

Experience the freedom of cycling, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint with the Cycle to Work Scheme. Join countless UK employees who have already embraced this eco-friendly and wallet-friendly way of commuting.
