With XC World Championships, Olympic Gold, and more Cape Epic wins than you can count, it's clear that the focused, cutting-edge Specialized S-Works Epic 29 Frame holds nothing back when it comes to getting you over the line in first. Its FACT 11m-carbon frame is not only light, it's super stiff for lightning-fast acceleration, and it handles like a true race rocket with short chainstays so the rear triangle remains stiff and responsive. The tapered head tube keeps the front end on point for quick, controlled handling and the bottom bracket height is low as well, letting you rail corners while also boosting stability. All this has allowed it to dominate the highest levels of XC racing by dismantling tricky descents and climbing better than a hardtail. Furthering those traits, this cross country rocket is equipped with Specialized's Brain-controlled rear suspension and a revolutionary 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork, boasting an inverted design that creates a carbon fiber upper which provides superior stiffness, while behaving with more sensitivity to small bumps and more control over larger hits. It's a singularly focused cross country race rig done right so you can be fast as possible and keep adding to the Epic's win count.
