2016 Specialized S-Works Epic 29 World Cup Frameset (j3)
With numerous XC wins, including a gold medal at the Olympics, Specialized's S-Works Epic 29 WC Frameset rocks Brain-controlled suspension for unprecedented climbing and confident descending. The state-of-the-art FACT 11m-carbon frame is not only light, it's super stiff for lightning-fast accelerations and pinpoint handling. The World Cup XC geometry boasts a tighter geometry, single-ring specific design, shorter chainstays and tube lengths, which work together to form explosive power transfer and an even nimbler sense of handling. To get this world-class build started off right, you get a carbon post, a headset, and a cutting-edge 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork, boasting an inverted design with a carbon fiber upper which provides superior stiffness, while behaving with more sensitivity to small bumps and more control over larger hits.
