£3800 – Specialized Epic Evo Carbon 29er Mountain Bike 2021 X-Large – Gloss Cool Grey/Dove Grey



Remember when cross country didn't always involve a starting gun? So do we. And while it'll never turn down a number plate Epic EVO is well-acquainted with the fact that the next ridgeline makes a perfectly good finish line too offering an incredible combination of pedaling efficiency and impressive trail-taming capability to get you there faster. While the Epic EVO sees a seemingly modest 20-millimeter increase in suspension travel up front over its Epic stablemate and just 10-millimeters out back we've worked overtime to make sure it's been implemented in a way that'll have you saying 'Whoa!' as soon as you hit your first stretch of singletrack. Meticulously engineered to retain as much of the Epic's standard-setting efficiency as possible the EVO's new suspension kinematics work in concert with our Rx XC shock tune to ensure you're able to make the absolute most out of every inch of travel on tap while still offering increased anti-squat characteristics for improved pedaling efficiency. With plenty of practice at staying ahead of the curve the Epic EVO now lays claim to the most capable iteration of our Progressive XC Geometry ever to grace an Epic. It's also more versatile than ever thanks to a new flip chip-equipped rear end that allows riders to adjust headtube angle and bottom bracket height to easily customize the Epic EVO's handling characteristics. Epic EVO's flyweight FACT 11m carbon frame features heavy-hitting Shimano components and RockShox suspension for a package tailor-made for making miles disappear faster than ever. Flip It To Rip It: Tune the ride of the Epic EVO’s FACT 11m carbon frame to match your preferred handling characteristics with flip-chip simplicity that allows riders to steepen the EVO’s headtube angle by half a degree while raising the bottom bracket height by six millimeters. The Reba RL doles out travel with a steady hand courtesy of RockShox's Motion Control damper while SoloAir adjustability makes dialing in suspension performance a breeze. Shimano's SLX shifting has always been the benchmark for affordable high performance and the latest M7100 series simply raises it even further.
