Specialized Epic Expert Carbon Evo 29 2019 Mountain Bike East Sierras

Season : 2019

Brand : Specialized

Code : 90318-33

Weight : 9KG

The 2019 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon Evo is a super light carbon xc race mountain bike with trail elements like 120mm of travel, a dropper post and wide tyres.

Ripping around between the tape is one way to worship at the altar of speed, but for all the other long, fast rides or marathon races on technical terrain, there's the all-new Epic Expert EVO. Consider it a more "epic" kind of Epic.

The EVO ups the fork travel of the Epic from 100mm to 120mm. This gives you some relief up front while also slacking-out the front-end by one-degree to 68.5º. A zero-offset dropper post to gives you more control on descents, but keeps your saddle over the BB on steep climbs. There is also some more meat on the tires with a grippy 2.3" Ground Control at the front and a stiffer Fast Trak at the rear with GRID protection at the sidewalls.

The Epic EVO also features the Brain 2.0. The OG Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, and oh was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for Specialized as a true leader in innovation and suspension development. Simple physics showed that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after some lengthy R&D, 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 means that the oil paths are improved, and that creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.

This is also among what Specialized call their Rider-First Engineered™ MTB frames, where the tubes place complex carbon pieces in all the right places, regardless of the frame size. As a result, stiffness is increased in the front-end for a vast improvement in the ride and in control. And to go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best-riding XC bike they have ever developed.

And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you’re thinking, "What about the weight?” We’re glad you asked. The weight- savings on the frame is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 525 grams. And now, carbon models also feature additional tire clearance to accommodate wider, 2.3-inch tires. More traction, ultimately, equals more speed.

The build of the Epic Expert EVO meshes shredability with dependability and value, featuring a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheelset.

 

This Bike Is Perfect For

The rider that wants more than just speed from a super light race bike. You want longer travel and a dropper post for downhill capability without sacrificing the XC race attitude that the Epic has. The 2019 Specialized Epic Expert Evo is perfect for riding fast over anything.

 

Key Features

  • A FOX Step-Cast 34 Performance Series fork handles suspension duties up front with 120mm of travel and a GRIP damper that has Open, Medium, and Firm modes for every kind of terrain.
  • The hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheels feature a modern 25mm (internal width) hookless rim, so you get the low weight, low rolling resistance, and the best possible grip with the 2.3" tires.
  • An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents, but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.

 

It’s safe to say Specialized are a big player in the road cycling world, with their aero Venge and cobble eating Roubaix claiming multiple stage wins last season. But not all the focus is on high end S-works racers, their range of road bikes is full and covers a range of price points.

 
The 2019 Specialized Mountain Bike range is now in full flow from the already hugely popular Pitch in new colourways to exciting new concepts like the Epic Evo! This year Specialized seem to have simplified their range quite a bit, dropping the Camber, Rhyme, Fuse, Ruze and Fatboy. The Camber and Rhyme have been replaced by the brand new Stumpjumper ST and Women’s Stumpjumper, whilst the “Fat Bikes” seem to have been dropped altogether.
