Regardless of if you're racing, training, or tearing it up on your local singletrack, you'll benefit from the incredible speed and handling provided by the Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup. This hardtail beast features a light, stiff FACT carbon frame featuring a snappy World Cup XC Geometry, that goes up hills like a true pro-level XC machine. And for charging back down the other side, you have RockShox's legendary SID fork featuring Specialized's Brain technology to tame changes in the terrain head-on. Anyway you're pointed, the lightning-quick Roval Control wheels glide over technical sections, and an efficient, slick-shifting SRAM X1 1x11-speed drivetrain gives you supreme reliability and a wide range of gears without sacrifice, all while supplying explosive power transfer and incredible climbing prowess. Throw in powerful Shimano Deore SLX brakes for speed modulation, as well as a host of light, strong Specialized components, and you've got a rig ready to tame the fastest XC trails all day long.
