Engineered to combine incredible speed with remarkable efficiency and lightweight integration, this bike answers to the escalating demands of modern XC tracks. With its enhanced kinematics and custom shock absorption, the Epic 8 Pro makes for both a powerful pedaler and a smooth-riding champion of bumpy terrain.

Ideal for XC racers and those who crave exceptional speed, the Epic 8 Pro is here to redefine your cycling experience.

  • Unparalleled Performance: Experience the power of the most capable 120mm bike in the market. Specialized's Epic 8 Pro's progressive geometry brings an extraordinary blend of technical terrain capability, fast climbing and rapid acceleration. Coupled with superb chassis rigidity, precision handling becomes the norm.
  • Smoother Rides: Enjoy rides like never before as the newly improved Epic 8 Pro delivers a whopping 12% more bump absorption and vibration dampening as compared to its predecessor. This feature works to reduce fatigue, ensuring that you ride at your optimal performance for more extended periods.
  • Customized Ride Dynamics: Specialized's own Ride Dynamics team has meticulously developed custom valving for the Epic 8 Pro's shock. Tuned to perfection, these unique damping characteristics work in harmony with new kinematics and redesigned leverage rates to deliver an outstanding ride that is greater than the sum of its parts.
  • Exceptional Efficiency: Our Ride Dynamics team have optimised the bike's suspension kinematics to decrease inefficient pedal-induced bobbing by 20%, while maintaining active suspension for effective bump force management. This ensures you remain in the most efficient pedalling position, making the Epic 8 Pro the most efficient pedaling suspension bike we’ve ever tested.
  • Maximising Capabilities: Every part of the Epic 8 Pro has been crafted to provide you with maximum utility without adding unnecessary weight. All models are equipped with SWAT 4.0 to carry your trail essentials, an integrated steering stop to prevent damage in case of crashes, and many more features, all while being lighter than before.
Experience the thrill of the Epic 8 Pro by Specialized and take your cycling game to entirely new heights.

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.
