Product Description

CLOSEOUT ITEM!! (May not be available at all locations, while supplies last)
A perfect introduction to your world of XC riding and racing, the Epic Comp Carbon features all of the same frame technologies that are found in its older siblings, only with a build that lets you give racing a try without breaking the bank.
Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in their boots, 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? They slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks.
Next comes Brain 2.0. The original Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both in its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh, was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for Specialized as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but they knew that they could make it better. Simple physics told them that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally reborn. Now, 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 Epic also has a rider Rider-First Engineered design that places complex carbon pieces in all the right places, and this 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 they've ever developed—no matter the frame size.
And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, Specialized knows what you’re thinking, "What about weight?" They’re glad you asked. With the goal of the Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike they’ve ever made, weight was at the top of our priorities list. They started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, an integrated shock oil channel, straight tubes with less bends, and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And, if you’re curious, this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 525 grams.
The build of the Epic Comp is value-packed, featuring an 11-speed SRAM NX 12-speed groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control alloy wheelset. Get ready, because this is going to be Epic.

  • 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.
