Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert 29″ Mountain Bike 2022 Perfectly balancing low weight with copious lateral stiffness, the FACT 11m carbon frame of the Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail 29″ Mountain Bike affords stunning levels of reactivity, helping the rider surge across challenging XC courses with speed and efficiency. The frame’s sophisticated carbon layup promises heightened vertical compliance, allowing it to float over the roughest terrain, markedly lowering rider fatigue. Additionally, extra frame-to-tyre clearance accommodates bigger volume tyres for even more control over rocks, roots and ruts. A RockShox SID SL fork utilises its plush suspension to smooth the hits, increasing composure and line accuracy when the riding is fast and technical. In addition, this fork integrates Brain inertia technology that automatically and intuitively firms or softens its travel, providing a solid, no bob platform on climbs but a full quota of plushness across unforgiving trails. Stiff and strong Roval Control SL wheels utilise their lightweight carbon rims to promote rapid accelerations and nimble direction changes, while the SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed gear configuration gives sharp shifts every time of asking amongst a huge range of ratios. SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes are charged with the stopping duties and do so with power and consistency in all conditions.
