This World Cup version of the S-Works Epic takes the concept of fast to another level. Like its counterpart "standard" version, the frameset is constructed from our finest carbon fiber and features a drool-worthy suspension kit that consists of a RockShox RS-1 fork and a FOX/Specialized remote Mini Brain. But where it differs is in its tighter geometry, one-by-specific design, and shorter chainstays and tube lengths, which work together to form explosive power transfer and an even nimbler sense of handling. And to drive even harder on efficiency and speed, we included our proprietary Brain technology at the fork and rear shock. This intelligent system is able to interpret the difference between rider and trail input, so it stays firm under effort and plush over bumps. Put it all together, and you have a purpose-built race machine that's certain to lay waste to any short track out there.
