It's undeniable that hardtails still play an extremely important role in XC racing. So what to do? Specialized put their XC offerings on a diet, went back to the drawing board, and created the lightest damn mountain bike they've ever made—the S-Works Epic Hardtail frame. To provide the optimal blend of stiffness, crazy light weight, and strength, Specialized constructed the frame from their FACT 12m carbon fiber, and with their XC 29 Geometry, the Epic is guaranteed to deliver uncompromising, blistering speed and agile handling come race day—no matter the course. On top of that, the S-Works FACT carbon seatpost features a lightweight construction and a 27.2mm diameter for superb vertical compliance over rough terrain.
