2018 Specialized Womens S-Works Epic Carbon Mountain Bike in Black

Season : 2018

Brand : Specialized

Code : 93018-00

Weight : 24KG

Sure there are other "fast" XC bikes out there but you'd be hard-pressed to find one with all the features of the new women's S-Works epic. With a rider-first engineered design refined and improved brain suspension and a redesigned frame the women's S-Works epic is the fastest most capable and best fitting women's XC bike we've ever created.

Race courses have evolved over the past few years. Theyre more technical steeper and simply more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots we saw this as an opportunity to make something specialsomething that both world cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well like the head angle reach stack chainstay length fork offset etc. And re-evaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep those fit and not just a short-travel XC option but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? We slacked that out but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks.

Next comes the redesigned brain technology brain 2.0. The brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension both its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that by moving the brain closer to the rear axle it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the rockshox team the new brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally new. Now it reacts seamlessly to bump forces it has much more consistent damping performance and finally it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This in turn improves oil paths and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.

The new women's epic also gets a serious upgrade in the stiffness department. The rider-first engineered tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places which greatly increases stiffness in the front end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest best riding XC bike we've ever developedno matter the frame size.

And while stiffness brain technology and geometry features are cool and all we know what youre thinking "what about weight?" were glad you asked. With the goal of the new epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike weve ever made weight was at the top of our priorities list. We started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing integrated channels through the shock extension straight tubes with less curves and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And if youre curious this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous epicnearly 350 grams.

For the S-Works model the build spares no expense with a custom rockshox sid world cup fork with our exclusive brain technology a rear rockshox brain shock at the rear that's custom-tuned for women a 12-speed SRAM xx1 eagle groupset powerful SRAM level ultimate brakes and hand-built featherweight Roval control sl carbon fibre wheels.

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
