Specialized Epic Expert 29″ Mountain Bike 2022 Blending hardtail efficiency with full-suspension composure, the Specialized Epic Expert 29″ Mountain Bike is a dream for gunning XC racers and weekend riders who crave speed across the trails. The FACT 11m carbon frame keeps weight to a minimum but boasts exceptional pedalling efficiency to promote a spritely ride sensation, uphill or down. An advanced rear suspension format includes a RockShox/Rx XC Tune rear damping unit and combines with the RockShox SID SL fork to grant 100mm of smooth travel, front and rear. In addition, Brain technology is integrated into the front and rear suspension and uses inertia components to automatically and intuitively firm or soften the travel, affording heightened reactivity up demanding climbs but supreme plushness when the going is fast, rutted and rocky. Roval Control SL carbon rimmed wheels keep rotating weight low for instant acceleration but are more than robust enough to handle the harshest tracks with aplomb. These wheels are propelled by a crisp-shifting, wide-ranging SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed gear setup, while hydraulic disc brakes promote confidence-inspiring stopping power and control into every ride, no matter the conditions.
