Specialized 22' Epic Hardtail Comp

📸 View our gallery of studio photographs here in the Satin Carbon Oil/Flake Silver colour scheme.

The efficiency and lightweight platform of a carbon hardtail leaves little to be desired when taking to the trail. Whether you're looking to ride rail-trails, the Tour Aotearoa or your local mountain bike trails, this 2022 Specialized Epic Hardtail will leave you smiling from ear-to-ear!

Specialized uses a feathery light '11m FACT' carbon fibre that tips the scales at approximately 930 grams for the frame. Paired with a 30.9mm seat post, you have the option of fitting a dropper seat post (not included) to provide even more versatility. The bike uses boost spacing hubs with thru-axles to provide a secure, strong platform for your power to be converted into direct, efficient, go-forward speed and acceleration. This hardtail shares the same 'progressive' geometry as the full-suspension Epic (race) bike. With such a modern cross-country geometry in the way of a 68.5-degree head angle for example, you'll enjoy a confidence-inspiring ride through more technically challenging sections of the trail. Stable, smooth and speedy!
