Crafted in the forge of all things fast, Specialized's Epic Elite Carbon World Cup has the goods to set record lap times and stay ahead of the pack. Its lightweight FACT carbon main frame and M5 aluminum rear triangle descends and climbs superbly, and pedals with authority thanks to 95mm of Brain-controlled FSR suspension. You'll also love the smooth 100mm RockShox SID fork, crisp-shifting SRAM X1 1x11 drivetrain and the sure-stopping Shimano SLX discs that let you hold maximum speed until the last possible second. Plus, the fast, 29-inch Roval wheels and Specialized tires deliver the best in acceleration and traction. And, the Specialized bar, stem, and remarkable Phenom saddle come from that same go-fast forge.
