'With our revolutionary new Epic series, we didnt just throw the rulebook out, we shredded it into teeny-tiny pieces and set it on fire.
Youve always wanted the increased comfort and incredible control that your friends on suspension bikes enjoyed, but you just didnt want to give up the unbeatable efficiency of a hardtail. Now, with the Epics combination of FSR suspension and rule-book-destroying Brain shock technology, you dont have to.
Just how good is the new Epic? Velo News says 'Specialized has found the Holy Grail. And the Epic is the new messiah.' Uncompromising suspension in the rough stuff and a hardtail-firm pedaling platform for less demanding terrain. And you know what that means, right? Now you can drop your friends on the climbs and, with our fully independent FSR suspension on your side, smoke em on the downhills too.
Epic: Efficiency. Comfort. Control. All in one revolutionary package.'
- FSR Suspension is the proven superior suspension system delivering increased comfort, maximum control, and highest efficiency.
- Brain Technology is hardtail-firm when terrain is smooth for improved power transfer, yet fully active when terrain is rough, providing maximum benefits of FSR suspension.
- Derived from the same alloy as M4, which is 24% stronger than 6061 aluminum, M5 is further refined and manipulated to make it among the lightest of bicycle alloys with no compromise to fatigue strength.'
