Product Description

CLOSEOUT ITEM!! (May not be available at all locations, while supplies last)
Ripping around between the tape is one way to worship at the altar of speed, but for all the other long, fast rides or marathon races on technical terrain, there's the 2019 Specialized Epic Expert EVO Full Suspension 29er Mountain Bike. Consider it a more epic kind of Epic.

Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and simply more challenging to ride. Specialized saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. They looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short- travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? That's been slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 44mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks.

By moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it is now in the most sensitive spot. It reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.

The Rider-First Engineered tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size- specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike Specialized has ever developed —no matter the frame size.

The build of the Epic EVO is value and performance packed, featuring an 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control Carbon wheelset. Get ready, because this is going to be Epic.


  • A FOX Step-Cast 34 Performance Series fork handles suspension duties up front with 120mm of travel and a GRIP damper that has Open, Medium, and Firm modes for every kind of terrain.
  • The hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheels feature a modern 25mm (internal width) hookless rim, so you get the low weight, low rolling resistance, and the best possible grip with the 2.3 inch tires.
  • An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents, but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.
