2017 Specialized Epic Hardtail Pro Carbon Wold Cup
Whether you're racing your heart out, training like there's no tomorrow, or riding the trail whenever you have an hour to yourself, Specialized's Epic Hardtail Pro Carbon Wold Cup is the bike to maximize every effort. Its light, stiff FACT 10m carbon frame flies up the hills, and for Evel Knievel speed on the way back down, you've got a RockShox SID 29 fork equipped with Specialized's Brain that automatically changes firmness for maximum efficiency. Lightning-quick Roval Control Carbon wheels deliver sheer speed on climbs, sprints and are ready to shred any XC course or ribbon of singletrack. SRAM's 12-speed X01 Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard 2x setup. To scrub all that speed you are bound to build up, Shimano supplies their sure-stopping hydraulic disc brakes for premium control. What's more, you get a spread of Specialized's components for full singletrack dominance.
