2020 Specialized S-Works Epic Evo

A more epic kind of epic

Dropper posts and slightly longer forks may seem like overkill on an XC bike. Specialized beg to differ. Epic EVOs are not only fast off the start line, they're even better suited to masochistically long rides, multi-day stage races, and fast backcountry missions.

Hardtail efficient. Full-suspension control

Suspension should always make you faster—never slow you down with energy-sucking suspension bob. Specialized's ingenious Brain-equipped shocks keep the Epic firm when the trail is smooth, then automatically turns your bike plush the moment your tires meet rocks and roots.

• S-Works, carbon chassis and ingenious Brain-equipped suspension—nothing’s faster.

• FOX Factory Step-Cast 34, with all the trimmings—including Fit4 damper and Kashima coating.

• Shimano XTR 12-speed drivetrain provides lightning-quick and precise shifts.
