Product information

Who is this bike for?Mountain bikers who do it all, from attacking the climbs to hitting rough descents. To help increase stability, they are slightly longer than trail and cross-country bikes, but will use wider bars and shorter stems for more reactive steering.About the BikeRipping around between the tape is one way to worship at the altar of speed, but for all the other long, fast rides or marathon races on technical terrain, there's the all-new Epic Expert EVO. Consider it a more "epic" kind of Epic. First off, the EVO ups the fork travel from 100mm to 120mm. This gives you some relief up front while also slacking-out the front-end by one-degree to 68.5º. Specialized added a zero-offset dropper post to give you more control on descents, but this design keeps your saddle over the BB on steep climbs. Specialized also put some meat on the tires with a grippy 2.3" Ground Control at the front and a stiffer Fast Trak at the rear with GRID protection at the sidewalls. The Epic EVO also features our Brain 2.0. The OG Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, and oh was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. It reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This means that the oil paths are improved, and that creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.This is also among our first Rider-First Engineered™ MTB frames, where the tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, regardless of the frame size. As a result, stiffness is increased in the front-end for a vast improvement in the ride and in control. A FOX Step-Cast 34 Performance Series fork handles suspension duties up front with 120mm of travel and a GRIP damper that has Open, Medium, and Firm modes for every kind of terrain. The hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheels feature a modern 25mm (internal width) hookless rim, so you get the low weight, low rolling resistance, and the best possible grip with the 2.3" tires. An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents, but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.Key FeaturesFACT 11m Carbon FrameFOX Step-Cast 34 Performance series ForkCustom RockShox Micro Brain shock Rear ShockSRAM GX Eagle 12 Speed Drivetrain SRAM Level TL Hydraulic Disc BrakesRoval Control Carbon WheelsetGround Control/Fast Trak 29 x 2.3" Tyres
