£6250 – Specialized Epic Expert Carbon 29er Mountain Bike 2024 Small – Satin Carbon/Metallic White Silver
When speed comes calling the Epic Expert doesn’t just answer it yells back ‘Catch me if you can!’ Featuring the most efficient suspension platform ever to grace a World Cup start line the Epic Expert pairs 100-millimeters of Brain-controlled travel front and rear for a package that was born to erase seconds from the clock. A Smarter BRAIN Mixing hardtail efficiency and full-suspension capability to impressively quick results Epic has always been defined by uncompromised commitment to speed. Well that and over 100 World Cup wins and podiums too. True to form the latest Epic continues the tradition taking advantage of the most efficient Brain suspension we’ve ever created to ensure it’s always on a first-name-basis with fast. Re-engineered hand-in-hand with the new Epic the latest BRAIN design resets the expectation for efficiency employing a new race-tuned pedaling platform to ensure every watt possible is translated into forward motion while handily soaking up momentum-killing chatter and big hits alike—all more smoothly than ever. Frame-Changer Redesigned with a focus on efficient power transfer and better handling performance the Epic’s all-new FACT 11m carbon frame features a 15-percent stiffer rear triangle in order to take full advantage of the BRAIN’s new race-tuned pedaling platform while the revised carbon layup of the front-triangle sheds weight sending the Epic’s already sky-high stiffness-to-weight ratio even higher. Offering 100-millimeters of brilliantly efficient BRAIN-controlled travel the Epic’s FACT 11m carbon frame increases rear-triangle stiffness for peerless power transfer and introduces the most capable handling in an Epic yet all while shedding weight over the previous-generation Epic. The RockShox SID SL BRAIN fork serves up 100-millimeters of brilliantly controlled BRAIN travel for effecient performance that pairs perfectly with the Epic’s rear BRAIN system. Sprightly stoppers from SRAM Level TL brakes offer smooth modulation for precise speed control. Descending from a long World Cup lineage hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheels feature a modern 29-millimeter internal-width hookless rim and maximize strength ride quality and durability while keeping weight to a minimum.
