Call it a healthy disrespect for the status quo, but Specialized was getting bored with traditional hardtail designs. So instead of playing along, they opted to turn the cross country world on its head with a bike that's not only the lightest mountain frame they've ever made, it's their lightest frame—period. Introducing the S-Works Epic Hardtail World Cup. To provide the optimal blend of stiffness, crazy light weight, and strength, Specialized constructed the frame from their FACT 12m carbon fiber, and when combined with the XC 29 Geometry, the Epic frame is guaranteed to deliver uncompromising, blistering speed and agile handling come race day—no matter the course. The RockShox SID World Cup 29 with Brain fork provides 90/100mm of efficient travel. It features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximize your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps. The one-by drivetrain is controlled by SRAM's venerable XX1 Eagle components to form the ultimate in efficiency and intuitive feel, while also having the added benefit of significant weight savings and minimal required maintenance. SRAM Level Ultimate hydraulic brakes, S-Works carbon components, and a carbon-railed saddle round out this amazing machine that will be primary weapon in your pursuit of speed.

Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.
